Teasing may also be pretending to give the other something which the other desires, or giving it very slowly.

From the outside, teasing seems to be a twisted pleasure: affectionate and sort of insulting all at once.

Whether a tease lands as intended depends in part on the relationship between the teaser and teasee.

Teasing is a complex yet vital social interaction through which people socialize each other, enter into and maintain relationships, and negotiate group membership and social hierarchies.

 Journal of General Psychology: Teasing: for superiority or solidarity?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Although teasing is not always positive (e.g., when used to bully), when it is between friends in social contexts and does not highly degrade a person's identity, it is expected to be benign and possibly even strengthen bonds between individuals.
The irritation at being teased stems from the target feeling put on the spot, or having a flaw uncovered; but the fact that the teasing is a playful act between friends signals that the irritating elements should not be taken seriously, and it thus neutralizes the negative component of teasing comments.
In addition, teasing can actually strengthen the relationship by establishing roles, showing a certain level of familiarity between individuals, and defining the interaction as involving a "joking relationship" of a desire to have such a relationship (when the friendship is new).
