Hanky Jock is a LED Jock Strap that uses an Adafruit Trinket to light up a Neopixels on a custom designed jockstrap to display the hanky codes from the 1970's. The wearer can set the color of what type of sex they are seeking. 

Hanky codes were developed in the 1970's, first gaining visibility in NYC. Men wore handkerchiefs in their back pockets of various colors to denote their sexual interest while cruising. Each color has a different meaning as indicated by the chart above.
