titillation (plural titillations)

  1. a pleasurable or sexually exciting sensation
    • 1749, John Cleland, Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, Part 5
      there feeling, and most gently indeed, squeez- ing those tender globular reservoirs; the magic touch took instant effect, quicken'd, and brought on upon the spur the symptoms of that sweet agony, the melting moment of dissolu- tion, when pleasure dies by pleasure, and the mysterious engine of it overcomes the titillation it has rais'd in those parts, by plying them with the stream of a warm li- quid that is itself the highest of all titillations
  2. the process or outcome of titillating
