Sex bracelets

I thought you should see this. Young people are using bracelets as codes for desired sex. They play games with them as well. It all reminds me of handkerchiefs that gay men used back in the 70s to tell each other what kind of sex they wanted. Young people, like gay men, are not supposed to have sex, are being supervised, and thus develop codes to be secretive. More supervision and oppression won't be the answer (typical reaction by the media, schools and others in the public eye). Acknowledgment of young people as sexual beings will. You cannot really say no, unless you can imagine saying yes too.
