Presumably calloused fingers are optional?! 😉

One thing though… To my mind the lightness of touch needed is as variable any of the other tips. I noticed this with my wife, and then with myself on transition. It’s highly contingent, not just on a woman’s individual tastes but even mood and time of month. There have been times when my wife would have torn my head off if I’d gone as lightly as at others.

It just struck a bit more of an absolutist tone than the rest of the otherwise excellent article. Even if it’s lamentable these thing still need to be said. 🙄
