Researchers at McMaster University in Canada, found that the sense of touch is more sensitive among women than men because their fingers are smaller.

Women have greater sweat pore density in their smaller fingers. The fingertip touch receptors, which cluster around sweat pore bases, were therefore more tightly packed.

One application may be better simulations allowing someone online to “touch and feel” the object displayed.
