permeability

Sometimes the softest touch can permeate the body. The edges of your body dissolve, your eyes soften and everything becomes liquid, fluid. Sometimes the skin seems like an impenetrable armour; and then the only way to touch is to be violent, penetrating through obvious orifices, as well as through openings in the mind.
And then there is the surgical precision of finding a pressure point, useful when encountering a closed body and closed mind, entering with clarity and skill, with little effort.
