    Aqui esta el contexto:

    "Le dice que él debería haber sido una niña y que aún estamos a tiempo de arreglar eso. Le toca los bultos. Le dice que todo es inútil. Que irá al infierno de todas formas. Que no hay remedio."

    Esto viene del libro "Espia de Dios". Sé que "bulto" quiere decir "package," "suitcase," o hasta "lump" como un abombamiento en la piel, pero "touch him in his lumps/bumps" no tiene ningun sentido. Podría referir a algún parte del cuerpo?

    Gracias por ayudando

    I'm just guessing based on the context, but it appears to refer to the boy's privates.

    Hola,

    Me parece que en el texto se está utilizando algo de jerga o una metáfora quizás. Pienso que se está refiriendo a los senos, nalgas o testículos; lol no se me ocurre nada que no tenga una connotación sexual.

    Aqui está mi intento:
    "He/she tells him that he should have been a girl and that we are still on time to fix it. He/she touches his tits/buttocks/balls. He/she tells him that everything is useless, that he will go to hell anyway, that there is no hope"

    Yes, "le toca los bultos" means "he/she touches him in his private parts".
