Help me find a drawing of a male and a female body, that highlights the parts that are considered safe for non-intimates to touch. I stumbled across it years ago online, but am struggling now to find it again.
A couple of years ago, I came across an illustration on the internet that I'd like to find again. It's a line drawing of a male and a female body, that's intended to show the parts of the body that are considered okay for non-intimates to touch. IIRC, the "safe touching zones" were hatched in pale pink over a simple line drawing. There may have been additional drawings of children. (Like, I seem to remember that it was okay to touch kids on the tops of their heads, but not adults.) I remember you could touch both genders on their hands and upper arms and shoulders. I think the acceptable zone for women was a little more inclusive than for men, but I may have that backwards.
I have a vague impression that it was produced as sociological documentation -- not to warn kids about stranger danger, or teach teenagers how to date, or anything like that. It might have appeared somewhere like Good
, or Wikipedia
, or a Richard Saul Wurman
/ Edward Tufte
type site. I've been Googling but failing.. "safe touch" brings up lots of images but not what I'm looking for, and I don't remember for sure if the phrase "safe touch" was actually used in the text of the graphic.
I'm thinking about using it as a small visual joke in a presentaton I'm making. So other similar graphic material might help me, but text won't.
If you can help, thank you :-)
