I’m not talking about sexual touching for a moment, I’m talking about touching in general.
Some cultures are more touch friendly than others while others are less. Unfortunately I belong to one of those cultures that’s more you friendly than others. I belong to the Hispanic culture which is notorious for being very touch friendly. People get up close, touch each other a lot and have a tendency to invade personal space.
See, I have no problem with this when it’s a girl who is relatively decent looking. But that’s because I am sexually attracted to women. It doesn’t mean I’m getting aroused every time I get touched, but I don’t mind it.
The problem is when it’s a dude. And every now and then I meet a (usually) hispanic dude who invaded the fuck out of my personal space, gets close and starts touching. They usually think I’m crazy when I complain and think there’s something wrong with me. Because apparently being Hispanic means we have to touch each other a lot.
Plain and simple, if you’re a dude, please limit your physical touch when you’re around me. I don’t care if our cultures imply that we have to have a bromance which each other. Even family seems to think I’m crazy.
How do we feel about touch culture?
