What makes you think that's why he did that?
Because he and my instructor are friends, and they had been talking about that. This instructor came to Haiti a few years later to teach a seminar. At one point, he wanted to give a correction to an adult female student, something about her posture. He walked to her and said: "Look, I'm just going to touch you right here, so you can see something." The woman could not believe that such an innocent gesture necessitated so much preparation and apology.
