The fifth contact point is necessary to complete the transfer of selyn from Gen to Sime, renSime or channel, and from Sime to Sime, as in channel to renSime. Most commonly lip to lip contact is used but other points will work with varying precision.

From: To Kiss or To Kill, by Jean Lorrah, 'For the first time, the Gen resisted, turning its face away as Baird sought to press his lips to the Gen's. It was not a kiss?it was simply the most convenient fifth contact point, a grounding to allow the flow of life energy through the nerve-rich lateral tentacles.'
