Three observers coded correlates of touch in a small Midwestern city and four coded touch in a large industrialized Eastern city. As in Henley's study, only instances where the initiation of an intentional touch with the hand was observed were recorded. Results indicated that the sex and age patterns observed by Henley in 1973 generally were still true in 1980. The pattern of touching by sex combinations for white adults is illustrated in Table 2-1. The most frequent type of touch by far was still from males to females.

Investigations of the meanings attributed to nonreciprocal touch indicate that being touched is perceived by others as submissive and powerless, whereas initiating touch is perceived as dominant and powerful. Furthermore, observational studies indicate that touch is a status privilege; lower status people are less likely to initiate touch to a higher status people than vice versa. Since women in our society (and most societies) have less status and power than men, it is not surprising that they are less likely to touch men than men are to touch them.
