Did we do this? Daily Mail, sorry:

'Body map' reveals chaps won't let male strangers near their feet | Daily Mail Online (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3290112/Don-t-touch-Women-let-strangers-contact-hands-men-happy-touched-long-s-female.html)


If you struggle to know when it is appropriate to give someone a hug or even simply pat them on the arm, help is at hand.
Oxford University scientists have created a series of body maps that show just where we are comfortable to be touched.
The ‘touchability index’ provides colour-coded information for everyone from our nearest and dearest to extended family, casual acquaintances and complete strangers.

Not surprisingly, the study of five European countries found that buttoned-up Britons were the least touchy-feely.
It also showed – again, unsurprisingly – that the less we know someone, the less comfortable we are to be touched by them.
However, there was one noticeable exception.
Men, it seems, have no areas which would be completely off limits to a touch from a total stranger – as long as the stranger is a woman.


Sounds about right.

I liked this bit:


In general the closer the relationship, the fewer areas of the body that were taboo, although people tended to be uncomfortable about letting anyone except their nearest and dearest touch their erogenous zones.
This meant that while a woman might be happy for her uncle to stroke her back, her front would be off limits.

I don't have a niece, but if I did I don't think I'd need Oxford University scientists to tell me that touching her front wasn't really appropriate.

Really, I mean, really, Uncle wants to give his niece a back rub....

So, unsurprisingly, people don't want Uncle feeling their b*llocks, ground breaking :eyes
