our school made us stop wearing them, nobody even knew about the "sex bracelets" thing until it was on the news

the bracelet thing IS true, but not to the proportions the media made it out to be. kids actually took it seriously in one school in the states. the bracelets were really popular, but most kids didn`t follow the meanings of them. even in oct. `04 the grade 8`s at my school wore them but only joked about the sex and all that.

I particularly like the dishonorable mention one on the "Mark of the Beast" foofawraw. That was a hoot.

"It has become all but impossible in the aftermath to distinguish between media-fueled hysteria and what may have once been an authentic, localized phenomenon.

Meanwhile, sales of jelly bracelets have gone through the roof nationwide. "

the sex bracelet thing was more of a rumor that triggered a poorly concieved trend. i know of immature, early adolescents that wore the things- and yes- i`m sure they were sexually active.

Wow, I can`t believe I`d only heard of ONE of the ten listed. Also, I thought the sex bracelets thing happened earlier--I remember hearing about them about two years ago.
