If you’ve ever been or currently are a teenager, you probably heard of hickies, or “love bites”. While light biting can be involved in the act, a hickey is actually caused by you or your partner sucking the other person’s skin until small blood vessels burst, creating a patch of discoloration. Giving your partner a hickey in the middle of a passionate make-out session can feel amazing, as well as playfully mark them as “yours.”
With these proven steps, you should be able to give your boyfriend or girlfriend, whichever way a Hickey.
1. Find the best place.
Just as you already know that giving someone a hickey is a passionate thing, so I bet you wouldn’t feel so 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.
2. Always ask for permission.
A hickey is a sexual mark, which makes it inappropriate for school, work, or visiting grandparents. Some people may wish to avoid the embarrassment of being caught with a hickey, or the hassle of trying to cover one up, so you should never give one without sussing out your partner’s feelings on the matter first. In addition, receiving a hickey can be somewhat painful, which is a mood killer for some people. You have been warned!
3.Make the mood.
Don’t just dive directly onto your partner’s neck and go in for the hickey. Spend some time kissing and French kissing first, then move your lips to your partner’s throat. Start with light kisses, then move into harder and more insistent kisses around the throat and collarbone. If your partner seems to enjoy it, you’re probably clear to move into giving a hickey.
4. Choose your position.
Just like finding out if your boy or girl 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, simultaneously finding out your partner’s choice spot. If they’ll love the hickey to be seen, the neck is the best choice. The side or the back of the neck is a good bet if your partner has long hair, or you could go to the collarbones, closer to the shoulder, so the skin can be covered by a regular crew-neck T-shirt. Remember it works easily on those soft, erogenous and delicate skin usually found in hidden corners of the body.
5. Part your lips slightly, and place them on the skin.
Imagine you are making the letter “O” with your lips, then press them firmly onto your partner’s skin so that you can make a good seal, without leaving any gaps for the air to escape. Try to keep your mouth soft and inviting as you do this, instead of going into a hard pucker.
6. Suck the skin.
Instead of using your lips only, now use your whole mouth to suck the area. Bite a little bit if your partner is okay with this. Suck your partner for 2-3 minutes and during sucking keep kissing and use your tongue to pleasure your partner. If you have sucked enough, you will see the marks. If it does not appear then, you can also bite little hard too. Sometimes it may take few second for Hickey to appear.
7. End it smoothly.
When you’re done sucking, try laying a few gentle kisses on the area, which probably feels more sensitive now. Resume making out as usual.
Point To Remember:
Your partner may have asked you to give a hickey, but he/she might not like the way it feels while you’re doing it. If your partner asks you to stop giving a hickey in between, then always respect his/her decision. Don’t continue giving a love mark on him/her.
