Thousands of young children are buying coloured wristbands every week. But parents have no idea of their true disturbing meaning...

Comments (348) Add to My Stories They are thin, plastic bracelets, the kind of innocent-looking friendship bands that schoolgirls like to wear.

Available in a variety of colours and cheap enough to be bought with pocket money, they have become an overnight sensation in primary school playgrounds across the country.
But it is their name that causes alarm bells to ring: Shag-bands. And they are worn by children far too young to truly understand what that crude term means.

'I couldn't believe it when my son told me what the bands are called,' says Donna Heaton, whose eight-year-old son, Sam, asked her for 20p to buy one from a schoolfriend at his state school last week.
'I was horrified. He doesn't even know what that word means. Apparently, he and his friends at school are using the bands to facilitate kissing, a bit like kiss chase.
'But I've since discovered through other concerned parents that the different colours mean different things.'
Alarmingly, these seemingly innocuous bracelets have been linked to gradations of sexual behaviour. Each colour denotes a physical act, from a hug or a kiss to showing body parts, to other acts that would make many adults blush.
If someone breaks the band off the wearer's wrist, the wearer supposedly has to offer the physical act that corresponds to the colour of the band.
A gold band entitles anyone able to snap it off to all of the sexual favours represented by the other bands.
Accountant Anna Kite had no idea that the bands being worn by her seven-year-old daughter, Holly, meant anything until another concerned mother in her home town of Horley, Surrey, phoned her.
'According to her son, he'd snapped a pink one from a girl's wrist at school that day, which meant she was supposed to show him her naked chest.
'My first thought was that my daughter, Holly, had about six of the pink bands because it's her favourite colour.
'When I questioned her, she told me what they were called, and confirmed that boys chased girls who were wearing them, and if they managed to grab hold of the band then you had to kiss them.'
Her ten-year-old son, Josh, ha

When Anna asked him what they were, he replied: 'If I snap a black one, the girl has to "do sex" with me.'
Anna says: 'I was mortified...disgusted. At that age, they haven't had any proper sex education.
'I confiscated the bands and Holly seemed to accept it straightaway. My son's petulant reaction reassured me that he saw them more as something that he had to have because his friends had them.'
Shannel Johnson, 32, from Sheffield, had a similar shock when she heard her eight-year-old daughter Harleigh say something similar.

'If they snap, I have to make a baby with a boy,' was how the little girl explained it.
'I was stunned and immediately sat Harleigh down. I said that was something adults did, not little girls,' says Shannel.
'Not in a million years would I have allowed my daughter to buy them had I known what they symbolise.'
Playground fads, of course, have always existed. Years ago, it was hula-hoops, marbles and kiss chase. But few have been as dubious as this one.
While shag-bands is not a trade name - the origin of the name is unknown - they are sold at mainstream stores such as Claire's Accessories and Peacocks, and are called 'jelly bracelets' or 'Gummies'.
Richie Hudson, who sells the bands in a shop in Croydon, Surrey, and on the internet, seems unconcerned about the growing outrage among parents.

Black- Sex
Blue- Blow job
Pink- Flash tits or penis
Yellow- Hug
Purple- Kiss
Clear- Whatever the snapper wants
Green- Hand job
Brown- Toss my salad
Glow in the dark- SEX TOYS
Any glitter- Girl chooses
Silver(Gray)- OUTDOOR SEX
Light Blue- Anal
Light pink- hug and kiss
Light green- Oral sex
Gold- All of the above and my fav tongue in vagina

orange- virgin

He sells more than 1,600 bands a week. At 75p for a pack of six, they fall well within the pocket money price bracket.
He denies that selling them is immoral. 'I don't think the bands are sexualising children,' says the 38-year-old, who has no children himself.
'There are far worse things going on in playgrounds for parents to concern them-selves with.'

Hudson says black bands - which denote intercourse - are his bestsellers. 'I don't think children buy into the sexual side - it's just a fad,' he says.
But a Facebook site set up by Hudson to promote the bands tells a different story. The site has 9,845 'fans' and a brief glance through their photographs reveals that most appear to be children and young teenagers.
