Is it safe to hold shutter button and spin the Aperture ring simultaneously?

I'm just curious as I'm trying this shooting method out if it was safe for a camera(XPro2, etc and 50mm f2) or this is what photographers do normally:  if I put it in S(single AF) and Aperture priority mode and then while still holding down the shutter button halfway to get focus on the subject I also spin my Aperture ring so I can control or get to what my background should look like(with bokeh, blur, etc).

Thanks
