Touchy feely people are annoying and somewhat disrespectful of your personal space. It could be friends, or it could be strangers. Either way, most of us don't like to be touched. A new stody carried out by Oxford tried to determine the level of comfort of where we can be touched by friends or strangers.


Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers mapped out the areas of the body where men and women said they would be uncomfortable if touched by someone else.


Check out the chart below. Female touchers are represented with red bars and male touchers are represented with blue bars.


Participants were instructed to color the parts of the body they were comfortable with being touched by different types of people.


Either way, know your boundaries, and respect others too. In other words: don't touch anyone you're not close to!
