This is exactly what I was told to do by a reputable Ducati shop when I was reassembling my 900cc Duc engine after head stud replacement. Ducati engines are similar to the Porsche in that they do not use any head gaskets.

I'm guessing you put some on the surfaces and with light pressure rotate the head or cylinder back and forth by hand for a minute or two or until there is a nice uniform freshly lapped grey finish on the entire sealing surface where the head and cylinder meets.
Then wash it off of course.
