To give someone a Hickey, place your mouth in a circular shape over your partner’s skin, especially on the neck or any other spot with soft skin, and suck hard on it for a few seconds causing a slight bruise and leaving a mark.

What is a Hickey?

A Hickey, also known as a “love bite” is a mark left on the skin as a result of blood that leaked and collected out of broken blood vessels (capillaries). This is brought about by a hard suck with the mouth on a soft spot of the skin. The mark is usually dark reddish, brownish, or purplish in color; like that of a blood clot.


Why do We Give or Receive a Hickey?

A Hickey is generally perceived as a mark of deep love, pride, possession, and trust. It is often done in the heat and height of passion, out of an in-depth desire for the other person. Giving someone a hickey is often regarded as ‘marking your territory’, telling the world that this person is all yours.

How do I give a Hickey?

Giving a Hickey is very easy. There are several ways to the game – you can do it by sucking, kissing aggressively, and biting the tender flesh found on the neck, the angle of the elbow or the inner thigh. Sucking is the easiest and most passionate way to give someone a hickey. Areas with very soft skin have more capillaries closer to the surface and are erogenous and easier to suck hard. Now let’s get down to the steps:

Step 1: Find the Best Place

As you already know that giving someone a hickey is a passionate thing, you wouldn’t feel very comfortable giving or receiving it under the curious eyes of onlookers. So, the first thing is to get in the right and most comfortable place for both of you.

Step 2: Ask for Permission

Although a hickey is a ‘love thing’ and is fun too, it’s oftentimes not desired. While it is completely inappropriate to jump into giving someone you met newly a hickey, someone might really be into you and still not want to receive a hickey from you. It doesn’t necessarily mean that his or her love for you is not in its fullest, but could simply mean that they do not love hickeys altogether. Many people have their reasons for wanting or not wanting to be given a hickey; so, don’t forget to ask for permission.

Since it is a mark that may not go out until after a few days or weeks, not everyone would love to go about with the mark. Your love may be the type who loves keeping his or her romantic life private and therefore wouldn’t love to tell the entire world what’s going on. In addition, some folks are not just the fan of anything painful, no matter how minimal the pain may be. So, find out first.


Step 3: Get in the Mood

As we have mentioned earlier, you don’t just barge into a friend and jump into giving him or her a hickey whilst giving them a hug. You first have to get into that tender and soft mood – start by giving him/her romantic signals, then lean in and try a prolonged kiss, snuggling and cuddling her in the process.

 Step 4: Choose your Position

Just as it’s necessary to find out if your lover would love to be given a hickey, it’s also necessary to know where they’ll love you to place the love mark. Now that you’re in the height of love and passion, its time to target where to place the love bite. If they’ll love the hickey to be seen, the neck is the best choice. Remember it works easily on those soft, erogenous and delicate skin usually found in hidden corners of the body.


 Step 5: Doing the main Thing

Having targeted the position, part your lips in a circular form and place on the desired spot, then suck real hard for about 10-30 seconds. While waiting to see the result of your romantic action, pet the spot with tender kisses or caresses. If you did a good job, it’ll take just a couple of seconds for the spot to turn reddish.

Depending on what you want, if you are not satisfied with what you got and want to go an extra mile for an extra size and/or color, repeat the former action on the same spot. Bring the exercise to a tender and passionate end by kissing the area again softly.
