What is the Hanky Code? The handkerchief code originates from the 1960s and 1970’s as a means to discretely indicate fetish interests in an unsafe world. Designed to be subtle through use of single color hankeys that were already common, men interested in sex with men (Gay, straight or bi-sexual) were able to signal sexual preferences as well as role. As our world has changed, flagging sexual interests has become broader, pan gender and we have the hanky code list to cover it all.
