"Do You Wanna Touch Me", also referred to as "Do You Wanna Touch Me? (Oh Yeah)" is a glam rock song performed by Gary Glitter. The song reached number 2 in the UK Singles Chart in January 1973, his third successive UK hit. The song represented something of a departure from the "trademark" of the Glitter sound and it was co-written by Glitter and his record producer Mike Leander. The song was also used in The Runaways biopic of the same name.

"Do You Wanna Touch Me" was later covered by rock singer Joan Jett in 1980 on her album Bad Reputation. It reached number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1982. Jett's version of the song appears in a 2008 TV commercial for Hewlett-Packard's TouchSmart computers. The commercial was withdrawn when the company learned that Glitter, now a convicted child molester, had written the song. On 29 October 2008, it was reported that Glitter would receive £100,000 in royalties from Hewlett Packard for the advertisement.
