  Touch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Touching another person is a form of physical intimacy and plays an important role in human sexual behavior.
Touching is also integral in physical abuse (striking, pushing, pulling, pinching, kicking, strangling, etc.) and hand-to-hand fighting.In a sentence like "I never touched him/her" and "Don't you dare to touch him/her" the term touch may be meant as euphemism for either physical abuse or sexual touching.
Touch can be considered a basic sense in that nearly all life forms have a response to being touched, while only a subset have sight and hearing.
