>During my monominiacal reading about parenting while pregnant, I came across a number of studies that documented that in the USA boys are touched by their parents far less often than girls, even during infancy. And the ways in which they are touched are very different as well.

Maybe they are touched almost as much in infancy but at a certain point (before adolescence) a feeling arises that they need to be toughened up, and minimising touch is part of that?
Which leads on to whether the boy feels a betrayal from his mother in particular, which may be displaced onto women in general?

You would have heard of those (perhaps apocryphal) English parents who, knowing that touch would spoil the child, allowed a handshake on Sundays?
