"Touch Your Woman" is a song written and originally recorded by American entertainer Dolly Parton. It was released in December 1971 as the first single and title track of Parton's album Touch Your Woman. It provided a 1972 top-ten country single for her. A tranquil, slow-tempo ballad, the song differed from many of Parton's other hits at the time, in that it was neither an upbeat, lilting country number, nor a nostalgic reminiscence of her rural childhood. "Touch Your Woman" reached number 6 on the U.S. country singles charts in March 1972, though a number of country radio stations refused to play it because they found it too sexually suggestive.
