Hanky Code – Colors of fetish

The Hanky code (also known as handkerchief code or bandana code) is a color-coded system employed in the gay rubber ad fetish community to indicate preferred sexual fetishes and roles.

Hanky Code

In this code, each color refers to a specific sexual preference / fetish

Originally to indicate the color, gay men used a bandanna (handkerchief) put in the back pocket, but today are widespread wrist bands, armbands, bootlaces and stripes on clothing (leather trousers, shirts, ecc..)

Left or Right ?

A relevant element of Hanky code is the location: wear a color on the right indicates a bottom role while wearing a color on the left indicates a top role.

This “position” code is also common outside of the hanky code, and is used in the gay rubber, fetish and BDSM combined with objects: whips, hood, cuffs, etc.

So, if you see a guy with the handcuffs attached to the left side of his belt, it will mean that he likes to handcuff (top part), while if you see someone with a whip attached to the right side of his belt this will mean that he likes to be whipped (bottom part).
