According to Vanessa Van Petten, contributor for momlogic.com, middle school kids have been partaking in a bracelet-based game called Snap for years.
Girls wear colorful plastic bracelets and boys try to snap or break them off. Each bracelet represents a sexual act that a girl must perform on a boy if broken.
For instance, a red bracelet stands for sex, a blue one for oral sex, and a green one for upper-body fondling.
Van Petten says the game is popular across Florida, Cleveland, and St. Louis, where the suggestive bracelets are banned from certain schools altogether.
While Snap is mostly all talk and no action, the crude conversations kids have about sex while playing are equally damaging.
Snap can also ruin a girls reputation. She could wear a bracelet without understanding its meaning, leading kids to assume shes playing the dirty game even if shes not.
