Word of the Gay: "Handkerchief Code"

"Handkerchief Code" is a way of letting people in the gay, BDSM, or sex worker sub-culture know what is that you are into sexually. Different colors and arrangements of handkerchiefs in back pockets had different sexual connotations.

I've heard it referred to as "flagging". IMO handkerchief code seems like a mouthful. :)

My only handkerchief code is that I have a cold and am caring one around 23/7 this week! ;)

I found it to be a great way to size up the crowd in the bars when I was in my "hunting for hook-ups" phase. It was also a good way for others to know whether or not I was someone they should hit on.
