Anybody know anything about sex bracelets? I am watching Dr. Phil and hearing about it for the first time. It does sound a lot like what we called " sex tabs" in elementary school. We didn't really know what it meant, mostly because it didn't mean anything at all.

All bs hype to me.

Wow. First I've heard of this. As a child and teen of the 80's, we used to wear jelly bracelets all the time, but they never meant anything like that.

I'm getting old.

In our Catholic high school, the way a girl had the clip on her kilt was a kind of signifier.

I believe that if the clip was pointing up, it meant she was taken. If it pointed down, she was single. If it went sideways, she was a lesbian. If it was diagonal, she swings both ways.

Why didn't we have any signals like that when I was in school? We had to give our signals the old-fashioned way - by telling our boyfriends what we were willing to do with them.

sounds urban legendy to me.

Dr. Phil is bad for one's health.

Yeah, wasn't there some big thing on Oprah a while back about how the big "new thing" with "kids these days" is blow job parties? There were a couple of guests who told lurid stories about how now whenever kids get together for parties, the girls give the guys blowjobs and even compete with each other to see who gives the best ones, etc. I seem to remember there being a thread on it. And I remember being sceptical about it. Sure, blowjobs happen at parties. They've been happening at parties since my parents were kids. I just doubt they happen in the open as the visual entertainment.

Well, there's only one solution: Ban all bracelets and all materials that can be made into bracelets. Collect all documents referring to this practice and burn them. Never mention bracelets again.

Wow. And all I knew was the earring thing - one earring, left ear = gay.

Until the point where many straight guys started getting ear pierces, when it changed to the right ear as a signifier.

I have a third earring pierce in my left ear as a signifier of being cheap. My ex went to get his ear pierced, and they were going to make him pay for both, even though he was only having one done, so I made them put the other in my ear. I like to get what I'm paying for...

Well, when I've got one earring it generally means I didn't put in the other five. Not that I ever do these days.

At the bottom of the website is an ad for "The Kimmel Centre for the Performing Arts". I wonder if it's named after Jimmy Kimmel, and if so, what arts are they performing?

From grade six or seven, all the way to grade 13, most of they guys, including myself, had a code for I'm painfully horny right now.

We signified it by carrying our books low and in front of us between classes, instead of tucked football like under our arms.
