In south they may touch, wipe the water from shivalingam and adding sandal paste, kumkumam, and they may do archanaa doopam, deepam neivedyam, karpur niranjanam. Only abhishekam they should not do for siva lingam and saligramams. for other vighraham they maydo abhishekam also.

In Mallikarjuna Temple in Srisailam it is done by women - I performed that on Jan 20th . This temple is not in North India.

I did abishekam to Mallikarjuna (one of the Jothirlingam) on 20 Jan 2019. Women are doing this in this temple in South India

 
the obvious answer is that you are dirty! in mind body and soul.
why in some temples you are not allowed to go near garbagruha,
leave alone touching!!
Brahmins that includes ladies and gents are not allowed
only archakas qualified people who do archana are allowed. jokes apart -
Your hand contains a layer of fatty acids and other corrosive materials, you may have touched your mouth or drooled on your hand leaving even more acidic deposits. Most people don't realize that when they touch things they leave a layer of these corrosive materials on them. These acidic compounds often react with the stone used for the statues and ends up destroying them. Of course it isn't instantly noticeable but with the passage of time it becomes noticeable.

Then you have dead skin cells, whenever you touch something you leave a trail of dead skin cells behind, due to the coarse surface of statues and murals you often leave a big deposit of dead skin cells whenever you touch them

Can we the Human being dictate the relationship between Jivatma and Paramatma?
This thread is in the Ritual section, so I will leave it at that.

You can enter garbhagraha even touch the lingam but your mobile and camera have to be left back in the cloack room! Does the pristine in body mind and soul has any scientific explanation other than security considerations ?
