We are usually ticklish in our sensitive spots. These sensitive spots are also our spots that are vulnerable to damage.

It is a response that goes nearly hand to hand with pain..but instead of pain we are experiencing the expectation of pain and evolved to laugh in order to submit and dispel possible danger. Originally a defense mechanism.

Laughing is now socialized to be done only out of enjoyment (though awkward/nervous laughter still exists in stressful situations).
