Runtime touch event and object's touch event problem!!

Hello everyone,
I have a runtime touch event called OnScreenTouch ( to do stuff like swipe the screen left and right), and an object1 with its listener created like this
local function OnObjectTouch(event)
// do stuff
print("OnObjectTouch is called")
end

object1:addEventListener("touch",OnObjectTouch)

The problem is after touching the object, although i did't touch that object, i mean i touched out side of it, which is the screen , it always calls the OnObjectTouch listener. I tested it by printing it out as above. How to fix this, when i touch out side of that object i want to swipe the screen, not to do stuff that the onObjectTouch commands. Any suggestion?

You didn't touch the object but the event fired, is that what you're saying?

If so - how large is the transparent area surrounding the image?
