WHY WERE THEY IN THE U.S.A. BANNED?
These colored bracelets were a popular fad among young people in the '80s.
At one time they were very popular in Florida.
The popularity grew, until it became known that some young people had begun to associate a hidden sexual 'meaning' to wearing certain colors of these silicone bracelets.
Wearing a certain color, it meant that the person (usually a girl), was available for a particular type of fun.
It was still worse when one of the shag bands was pullend and broken.
This is not easy because they are very strong, but with some force they can be broken
Then the girl was supposedly 'compelled' to carry out the action associated with the color.
HIDDEN MEANINGS OR 'INSTRUCTIONS' BEHIND THE COLOURS
Yellow = embrace
Purple = kiss
Light Pink = hug + kiss
Orange = hickey
Neon Pink = let's quickly see your breasts
Green = sex manual
Blue = intimate kiss
White or gray = outdoor sex
Red = lapdans
Glitter = what the girl wants
Black = full sex
Some parents in the US were so shocked by the possible meanings of these bracelets that wearing them strictly banned in many schools throughout the country.
The result was quite predictable that the bracelets became both incredible popularity, as well als getting more and more difficult to buy.
