Back in the 70's and 80's, the hanky code was used as a discreet way of signaling your sexual interests. But in 2020, the code (and the colors) have evolved beyond their original purposes. 


Below is the up-to-date hanky code showing you what the colors mean. But don't take it too literally: Men in the modern day communities often wear a color just because they like it, NOT always because they are signaling something. 

2nd Skinn leather designer Terry Moschella puts it eloquently: "If you want to wear a color like yellow, then wear it. Just because you're wearing a yellow harness at a Circuit Party, does not mean someone is going to come up to you and pee on you. But consider your environment... Because if you wear that same yellow harness to a private dungeon space, it conveys a different message!"
