Wristbands a sex sign for teens

That wristband on your child's wrist could be more than just a fashion statement. While the bands started as an innocent accessory, teens on Mxit have taken them to a new level.

That wristband on your child's wrist could mean more than just a fashion statement. While the bands are just a fashion accessory at face value, some teenagers, especially those on teen chat network Mxit, have taken the bands’ meaning to the whole new level.

The wristbands are sold on the streets in different colours ranging from blue, black, green, glittery green, pink, orange, purple, glittery purple, red, yellow, glittery yellow and white.

  • Pink is good old teenage favourite, love bite, whoever is wearing this colour will give another one a love bite
  • Orange is the colour of kiss
  • While purple is both of them will be kissing
  • Red, which is only for the girls means she is willing to do or perform a lap dance
  • Yellow is just a hug
  • A white band means the wearer will flash whatever is asked, be it breasts, vagina or the buttocks.
