Jelly Sex Bracelets and Their Color Meanings…
What Do The Jelly Sex Bracelet Colors Mean?
This story has been going around since 2003, thanks to some rumors in Marion County, Florida , and periodically re-discovered by school principals, local communities, civic organizations and even some churches, giving some busybodies something new to worry about, especially on a slow news day.
Jelly Bracelets! Those gel ‘sex bracelets’ (also know as Shag Bands or Goomies) from the 1980’s are still being used today, but they have a completely different purpose than when Cyndi Lauper and Madonna wore them.
The story popped up in the British media in 2009, in which the bracelets were allegedly nicknamed shag bands. And similar stories circulated in Brazil during the 2009–2010 summer, where the bracelets were referred to as pulseiras do sexo.
This social phenomenon involves “snapping” the bracelet off the wearer, the game is called ‘SNAP!” of course – enabling the snapper to earn a sexual favor from the snappee based on the color of the snapped off bracelet. It seems to be an off-shoot of a phenomenon from the 70s and 80s when a guy (or girl) could get a sexual prize for successfully peeling off a beer label, without tearing it.
Our own informal questioning of a few dozen high school and college students in the US indicated that none of them had participated in the practice, and noone even knew anyone else who did.
- Yellow – indicates the wearer is willing to HUG
- Pink – indicates the wearer is willing to give a hickey
- Orange – indicates the wearer is willing to KISS
- Purple – indicates the wearer is willing to kiss a partner of either sex
- Red – indicates the wearer is willing to perform a LAP DANCE
- Green – indicates that ORAL SEX can be performed on a girl
- Clear – indicates a willingness to do “whatever the snapper wants”
- Blue – indicates ORAL SEX performed on a guy
- Black – indicates that the wearer will have regular “missionary” sex
- White – indicates the wearer will “FLASH” what they have
- Glittery Yellow – indicates HUGGING and KISSING is acceptable
- Glittery Pink – willing to “flash” (show) a body part
- Glittery Purple – wearer is willing to French (open mouth) kiss
- Glittery Blue – wearer is willing to perform anal sex
- Glittery Green – indicates that the wearer is willing to “69” (mutual oral sex)
- Glittery Clear – indicates that the wearer will let the snappee “feel up” or touch any body part they want
There are variations of course, just as there was with the M&M’s back in the 80’s. Many people thought that the yellow ones made you horny, but research proved that it was the green ones!
To be sure, many children and even adults wear these decorative bracelets without any sexual connotation or meaning. Parents of young teenagers and children, obviously, should be aware of this.
FYI – WEARING THE BRACELETS DOES NOT MEAN YOUR KID IS HAVING SEX, OR PARTICIPATING IN THIS “GAME”.
ALL REPORTS INDICATE THAT IS GENERALLY ONLY “PLAYED” BY KIDS WHO ARE ALREADY SEXUALLY ACTIVE, AND WHO NEVER HEARD ABOUT IT UNTIL THEIR PRINCIPAL OR OTHER ADULT GAVE THEM THE IDEA IN SOME PUBLIC FORUM.
