The following is a photocopied list distributed to staff and some parents by Wheatley Elementary School to document the dangers of “sex bracelets.” The bracelets, formerly known as jelly bracelets, are now alleged to represent various sexual acts, to be performed by the wearer when someone breaks off the appropriate one. Wheatley Principal Vivian Hairston did not reply to multiple messages left with staff. Says a staff member, who declines to be identified, “It’s not happening in my school, but it is happening in some of our schools. The kids know what it means, but I don’t know if they’re acting on it.”—Bidisha Banerjee
