English term or phrase: poking
Buenos días, domingueros:

Estoy traduciendo un texto sobre el acoso sexual y aparece toda una lista de las agresiones. Este término aparece en "poking another employee's body". Normalmente poking es dar codazos, pero ya he empleado, tocar, rozar, dar golpecitos, palmadas, restregarse, agarrar, pellizcar, ... y me estoy quedando sin verbos. Alguna sugerencia para el último de la lista.

¡Muchas gracias!
Maria Alvarez
