Very interesting ideas. Where do cultural and religious norms figure into all of this? I am sure that there are differences in what is allowed or expected touch-wise, and with people I do not know, I try not to initiate a touch or even stand too close lest I offend them. Can cultures be distinguished as touchy versus non-touchy? And more importantly does it matter? Chris Peterson
