A hickey, hickie or love bite in British English, is a bruise or bruise-like mark caused by the kissing or sucking of the skin, usually on the neck or arm.

While biting might be part of giving a hickey, sucking is sufficient to burst small superficial blood vessels under the skin.

A hickey is also known as a ‘love bite’ which is a mark left on the skin which 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 purple in color.

It is generally seen as a mark of deep love, pride, possession and trust.

It is often done in the height and heat of passion, out of a deep desire for the other person.

Hickeys are a sign of passion. Some people give hickies to their partner to mark their territory and show the world that this person belongs to him/her. It may simply be a passionate reminder of one’s love for another.

Here’s how to give someone a hickey:

1. Find the best place: Giving a hickey is a passionate thing. So the first thing is to get in the right and most comfortable place for you both.

You first have to get into that soft and tender mood. Start by giving them a romantic signal, then a tender to prolonged kiss, and cuddling them in the process.

3. Choose your position: If they’ll like the hickey to be easily noticeable, the neck is the best choice. Remember that it works easily on the soft and delicate skin usually found in the hidden corners of the body.

4. Do the main thing: Having choosing your position, part your lips in a circular form and place on the desired spot, then suck real hard for about 10-30 seconds.

While you wait to see your results, pet the spot with tender kisses and caresses.

If you did a good job, it’ll just take seconds for the spot to become reddish.
