Handkerchief Color Codes Fact Sheet

“What the most popular red hanky popper?”   At pigsolvents we get lots of questions about what poppers are best for fisters, for spankers, and all types of BDSM activities… often times a question just mentions a bandana color but not its meaning.

We know the big colors BLUE (fucking) , RED (fisting) and YELLOW (water sports), but some what’s poppers are used for a Fuschia hanky scene always sends us to the the handkerchief code charts but even Wikipedia doesn’t cover every thing..  So instead of looking up the bandana color every time, we are collecting our own list of Hanky Color Codes with the LEFT / Right definitions and popper recommendations:

Hanky Code Color Worn Left / UP Worn Right / DOWN Popper Brands
Blue Hanky Anal – Top Anal – Bottom Jungle Juice Blue
Red Hanky Fister Fistee English White Label
GOLD 2 dark red Hankey Popper Coach Popper Gooner / bottom Rush Poppers
Dark Red Hanky 2 Handed Fisting TOP 2 Handed Fisting bottom dv8 extreme


While the color code list is not complete, hopefully it helped decode some of bandana in back pocket meanings!

Hanky Code Dual Color

Poppers Hanky Code
We have started to include Hanky Code V2. Many fetishes fall under broad categories for example impact play, does not have its own hanky color code. Until now!

The Dual Color Hanky Code uses an arrow with an OUTER and inner color to expand the universe of kink flagging.
The arrow pointing up means top / dom / active and pointing down signals bottom / sub / passive..
We are excited to begin including these new colors.
