Hickeys are marks of possession, so most people put them on the neck where they’re nice and visible. Hickey is caused by lips breaking blood vessels, and that’s easy to do on the sensitive neck. Any part of the body can be used for that, but it should not be a place with bone only like elbow or fingers, etc. love bite marks appear more quickly on the sensitive area like neck, nose, lips, cheeks, thighs, and belly, etc. But it is better to ask your partner about the location where he or she wants to get it.

Sure, you could put a hickey on someone’s upper inner thigh, but unless they were wearing a swimsuit, nobody would see it. You might as well draw a smiley face with magic marker 🙂

There are many rumors that love bite can give you cancer, STD or even AIDS while there is no case ever been recorded of these diseases occurred due to a love bite. It is not possible to have any of these diseases through Hickey. It would be not wrong if I say that love bite is safer than French kiss because mouth to mouth kiss can leave STD if you have a related injury wherein hickey you just suck the skin or bite the first layer of skin which does not even cause bleeding.

How long does Hickeys last?

Its depend on person to person and skin to skin. For some people, Hickeys lasts for 2-3 days while for some people it took a week to get rid of it. This would vary from person to person. Also, how dark the Hickey mark is can help you to judge how long it takes to get disappear.

Many people don’t always get it right. Or they do, but always have that sense of doubt. You do not need special skills or learn the technique to give love bite because it is same like you are sucking or kissing very tightly, the difference is that you will suck or kiss until its leave the mark. But still, you need to follow some guidelines to make it done in better and easy way.

With these proven steps, you should be able to give your boyfriend or girlfriend, whichever way a Hickey.

1. Prepping Your Partner

Well, first of all, you need to start complimenting your partner. You need to start a discussion and discuss whether your partner is hesitant or shy. You can start with some romantic prep-talks, dirty-talks or any other kind of discussions that are likely to take a romantic turn.

2. Ask for permission from your partner:

how do you give someone a hickey or love bite

Every person does not like Hickey, just like other things. Even some people who want to get Hickey refused to get due to some causes like they don’t want that someone sees their love bite. It could be embarrassing in many situations like if you are not open about your relationship, you are a school going person, etc. So, that’s why some people avoid getting love marks even if they are willing to get one. So, make sure, do not surprise your partner by giving her Hickey without her permission. Always ask for permission first and also make sure that your partner is aware of love mark and pain (in some cases).

If your partner is worried about love marks, read how to get rid of a Hickey. You can also try to hide the hickey or try any creative excuse about hickey which we have listed on Hickey Solution.

2. Build Attention by Foreplay

You are not going to start giving Hickey without building attention. First, stay at some soft play like kissing, French kissing and massage, etc., whatever your partner like most. This helps you both to get ready for it and you will understand if your partner is willing to get love bite or not.

Foreplay is usually is known for sex, but the purpose of foreplay is to build attention. You need to make consideration before you start giving a Hickey to your partner. You can begin by commonly kissing and massage your partner etc. This will help to build attention and make love bite more pleasurable.

Note: If you attempt giving your girl or guy a bug bite without much arousal, you may be spoiling the mood.

3. Choose your location

Once you build attention by kissing and soft play or Foreplay, now it’s your turn to choose a location where you would like to give Hickey. It could be the neck, lips or even nose, etc as we explained above. If your partner does not want that the Hickey marks appear to other people then selecting places like thigh and butt are a better choice. You can ask your partner for the suggestion on how to give a Hickey as well.

Once you decided the location for a love bite. Start kissing that part slowly for few second and then a little harder. Just make your partner ready for this.

4. Kiss aggressively, Use your tongue

If you noticed that your partner is enjoying your kissing by her moaning, you should now start kissing more tightly, harder or aggressively. Use your tongue to lubricate the area. Now you need to understand that, while giving a hickey kiss, it is pertinent to know that your teeth are not involved and must also do away with excess spit as you don’t want to leave a slobber on your partner’s neck.

Suck gently on the spot for 20-30 seconds which is long enough for the capillaries on the skin to break and thus, appear the hickey mark.

5. Suck and bite

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. Don’t disappoint if you did not see any love bite, try again with more pressure. Still, you can also create a fake hickey if you want it to show your friends.

6. Make It Darker

If you want the hickey to be bigger or darker, then you need to repeat the method once more at the same spot. However, make sure to stop if you’re asked to stop. Maybe your boyfriend or girlfriend feels that it’s not a good option to have a hickey because he/she might have to deal with friends, family or colleagues.

Note: The Hickey kiss is just similar to bruises, it takes some minutes for the mark to appear. It could be anywhere from dark purple to light pink.

Give Your Love Bite a Nice Wrap Up: Giving hickeys especially on the neck should end smoothly. Give a gentle kiss on the hickey mark and make out afterward. If you are looking for how to get rid of a hickey then we already covered it with this post.
