"Beard sex" is a sensual practice that takes place between two men. It was first documented by Scottish historian, philosopher and proto-anthropologist William Robertson (1721–1793) as being a common in a certain area of in Western India:

"The local men of the village perform "Dragooning" every morning before taking water, rubbing their beards together at the chin, being careful not to touch the nose of the other which is regarded as sacred and must not be touched. A most unusual greeting..."

This practice is known colloquially in Australia and New Zealand as Beard Sex and is often incorporated into jokes about Indian cricketers during cricket season.
Original quote from William Robertson (from a letter to his wife, collected in "The Collected Letters of William Robertson, OUP, Oxford, 1954):

"The local men of the village perform "Dragooning" every morning before taking water, rubbing their beards together at the chin, being careful not to touch the nose of the other which is regarded as sacred and must not be touched. A most unusual greeting..."
