Son Likes to Touch Necks and "soft" arms

Since my son was probably two, he started to squeeze peoples cheeks. This "cute" habit has stuck with him and now he is 5. He has to touch soft things and its almost involuntary. He has a younger sister (1) and he constantly touches under her chin, her neck and says he does it because she is so "squishy". He also likes to touch the nanny (65) on her soft and squishy arms, face etc. Does anyone else have a child that does this?
