I think it is very eww or yucky t touch them, somewhat or what really off me to touch them is the fact that they are dead, I just cannot touch them maybe if they are my relative son, daughter or parents (oh God please not now, not tomorrow, let them live with me for 7 decades or more), Have you touched a dead man!?, I haven't really!, Are they really cold!?

i have touched cadavers for anatomy class. they had no skin or anything on them. it was for us to be able to examine the muscles, etc. it was nothing bad. i felt more sad because the bodies could tell so much. the woman's knees were all swollen so i figure she had a hard life as a nurse or waitress. i have never seen a "fresh" one though.

Yeah, once when my father in law passed away in his sleep, I had the unfortunate experience of having to touch him, while lacking all the vitality of life.

No, i haven't touch any deadman yet. However, maybe in the future if it happens that because of sorrow and longing, i can touch a deadman if he/she is a part of my life, eigther a relative or my partner or whoever is close to me.
