I saw this the other night on the news... has anyone else heard of this trend? Jelly bracelets = sex bracelets?!http://www.nbc10.com/news/2619696/detail.html

I teach 5th grade and all of my girls wear these. I'd like to think they're doing so simply to pay tribute to the 80s fad made famous by Madonna! (Though it came out that a boy bet his friends $20 that he could kiss a girl in my class...)

I read an article where it indicated that the media was playing this up more than it really was. I asked my DD (14) about them (she doesn't have any as she is the "anti-trend" girl :)), but she had never heard of that rumour that they are "sex bracelets."

I'd never heard of this :eek: I would never have suspected.

I heard about this on Oprah. I'm not around teens, other than DBIL, and I don't think he would be one to tell me what they mean to him :o

All the teens at my son's school are giggling at how far the "grownups" are taking this innocent bracelet trend. It's almost like a big joke on the adults.
