“Most people”?

I doubt.

I actually think most people respond well to appropriate touch (tautology I know). I don’t think most find non-sexual touch not intended to demonstrate power or control but intended to communicate attention, focus, support, or concern as unwanted or intrusive. But enough don’t like it that great caution is warranted especially if there is a real or perceived power imbalance between the toucher and the touched. That perception can be based on position or gender or a wide variety of factors.

Biden has not exhibited such caution. He says he gets it now. Not sure he does.
