1. What are sex bracelets?

3. Who wears sex bracelets?
Jelly bracelets are in fashion and worn by people of all ages, both male and
female. They are a casual and trendy style of jewelry. However, it is
college students and twentysomethings who wear them as "sex bracelets," not
usually younger people.
4. If a girl wears jelly bracelets, does that mean she has sex?
Not necessarily. Many people, especially younger people, wear jelly bracelets as fashionable accessories and are
not even aware of the sexual connotations. You can't make assumptions. If you
want to know, ask her, but don't be surprised if you get slapped in the face.
5. What is the "snap" game?
One person attempts to break or "snap" a sex bracelet off of another person. The
broken bracelet then becomes a
"sex coupon" that the snapper can exchange for
the sex act signified by the bracelet's color. It is cheating if you simply pull
the bracelet off the arm without breaking it, or use a knife or scissors to cut
it. The game is rumored to have first been played at college fraternity parties.
6. If someone snaps off a bracelet, are they entitled to sex?
Of course, no one is "entitled" to sex, ever, and no one ever "has" to
give somebody sex. However, in some sex games, snapping off a bracelet means,
within the rules of the game, that the snappee should engage in a particular sex
act. However, a game is just a game, and "no" always means no.
7. Where can I buy sex bracelets?
Sex bracelets or jelly bracelets are available through online stores, on eBay,
and in most major discount stores and many mall stores that sell fashions and
jewelry for young people.

These type of bracelets were popularized by Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and other
female divas of the '80s. And like a lot of '80s fashions, they've made a
9. Isn't this whole sex bracelet thing just a bunch of media hype?
The media has mistakenly associated sex bracelets with middle and high school
students, since these young people sometimes wear jelly bracelets. However, it
is college students and twentysomethings who actually ascribe sexual meaning to
these bracelets. For the VAST majority of younger people, jelly bracelets are nothing more than a
fashion accessory, and have no sexual meaning.
10. Are sex bracelets really cock rings?
Sex bracelets do resemble some
cock rings. There is actually some relation,
which goes back to the original '80s trend. Decades ago, punk rockers began
wearing cock rings as bracelets, as a sign of rebellion and rejection of sexual
convention. Some of these were made of studded leather, and some were basically
rubber O-rings, usually black. As the style caught on, the origin of the
bracelets was forgotten. Now that the style is making a resurgence, maybe the
trend will go full circle and gay men will start wearing sex bracelets as cock
