I remember hearing that gays use a special code to display what they like, and whether they like do do it, or have it done to them.

A lengthy trawl round some fairly unsavoury websites today has confirmed this to be the case! It boils down to what colour your handkerchief is, and which pocket it's in. There appear to be about 50 different hanky colour codes (eg. red & white = shaving, olive = uniform, fuscia = spanking), and handkerchief placement says whether you're an -er or an -ee. (e.g. left pocket = spanker, right pocket = spankee)

So how did this complicated protocol get started? Is there an underground RFC system?

A total catalogue of weird and vanilla things is available to those who know the code and go that way.

It's rarely used, but this could be useful if, perhaps, you are trying to find a pay phone to call and you just happen to have a gray hanky in your pocket and the only place within walking distance is a gay bar.

Or you might want to pick out your clothing for tonight. I don't know.
