The act of touching someone who you have just met with the back your hands so that you do not violate their personal space and come off as a creeper while still initiating casual contact.
Mike: "I was at the bar when Lindsay, the cute girl I met, had a drink spilled on her butt. I used a backhand touch to check how wet it was. She didn't seem like the kind of girl who would respond positively to an ass grab that early."

Gabe: "Very smooth, she totally would have slapped you if you didn't use the backhand touch!"
