"Jerry Beads" are plastic beaded necklaces that people receive if they expose parts of their bodies while attending a taping of The Jerry Springer Show in Stamford, Connecticut. The beads are typically reserved for women who show their breasts, but men can earn them by flashing their chests or rear ends. The controversial talk show, hosted by former Cincinnati mayor Jerry Springer, features guests who complain and interact about issues pertaining to adultery, incest, and other sexual behaviour that is generally considered to be deviant.
