Why Do Lovers Give A Hickey?

Hickeys are usually a sign of passion and also a way of marking territory or a loved one. It may simply be a passionate reminder of one’s love for another.

How To Give A Hickey?

Now that you know what a hickey is and why people give each other one, you may want to know the all-important technique to give that memorable token of love. Follow these steps to know the best way to give a hickey:

  1. Begin with some kissing and smooching, before you explore that perfect spot for a hickey. Start with light kisses, before graduating to more intense ones. If your partner is enjoying the intimacy, she may be enthusiastic about getting a hickey.
  2. Choose the location well. As mentioned earlier, hickeys are meant to be intimate and not tacky symbols of affection for public display. Usually, neck areas are popular spots for giving a hickey, which is fine if your partner has long hair. You can also consider other spots like the crook of the elbow or the inner thigh.
  3. To give your partner a hickey, make an O with your lips and press them firmly on your partner’s skin. Seal your love with your lips and leave no room for air.
  4. Freely express your wild side by sucking hard enough to break capillaries. However, remember your partner should moan with pleasure and not pain. To give that perfect hickey, you need to keep sucking for 20-30 seconds.

Now that you know what a hickey is and how to give the best hickey, take a look at some points to remember before you go wild.

Remember, no teeth! You don’t want to begin as a passionate lover and end up looking like a Dracula do you?

If 30 seconds of sucking seem weird, try some kissing and then another 10 seconds of sucking at the same spot.

Remember that saliva can prove to be a dampener for your play of passion. Keep a track of the amount of spit in your mouth. Leaving behind a sticky residue on your partner’s neck or inner thigh might just ruin her mood and your hickey.
