Hickey’s aka love bites is the sweet evidence of a sensual night that you might have had. They are sexy and a reminder of passion and pleasure between you and your partner. Leaving a scratch mark from nails or a love bite is what comes from a woman when aroused in bed. Women proudly mark their territory (their man) in this sweet-sensual way. 

What Is Love Bite And How To Do It?

Love bites or hickey’s are nothing but a small discoloration of the skin anywhere on the body caused by sucking. It is the small blood vessel burst that causes a mark. Not a bruise but it happens in the intensity of foreplay between a couple. The best part of love bites is that every time you look at them, you are reminded of the events of passion that rocked the foundation of your bed. 

How To Do Love Bites?

Now, you might be thinking that how to give a hickey? Love Bites or hickeys can be given in a lot of different areas of the body. The best part for that love bite would be the neck. It is the most sensual and sensitive part to make him even more passionate. But there is no thumb rule to it. Just go with the flow and have him wherever you wish to without giving it a second thought. To make that mark, start by gently kissing that portion of the skin, with biting a little. Biting makes the skin a little loose, hence making it easier for giving a love bite. Once you are ready, make an O of your lips for the suck. An O bigger than what you do when sucking from a straw.  Then suck on the skin hard for a few seconds. It will take up to 2 minutes for the hickey to show. Remember, the harder the suction, the darker the mark. 

Some Facts About Hickeys

Here are some facts about Hickeys:

1. They Can Hurt

As they are caused by sucking, they bruise the first and the second layer of the skin. These layers are too sensitive to get injured easily. Hickeys as per Kamasutra are said to be sex injuries so they can hurt. But the pain is not an intense one. Hickeys can hurt slightly for a day or two. It is not always hurtful depending upon the sensitivity of the spot where it is given. The pain is linked with the level of intensity by which it is given. 

2. Hard to Vanish

There may be times when a man or a woman gets a hickey and needs to hide it from the public. That is the time when you regret having one. There are no full-proof ways pf vanishing a hickey. It can only be concealed or reduce the appearance. No matter what you dab on, nothing is going to help.

sometimes, a hickey is that bruise mark that never fades away 100%. No matter how many ice packs or makeup you use, some hickeys never go away, hence you are scarred for life. This is usually because of the intensity of the love bite. So it is important to go easy when giving or taking a hickey. Be human and not a vampire. 

4. Oral herpes virus

A lesser-known fact about herpes is that it can also be oral and not just genital. If your partner has a cold sore and hence gives a hickey, there are chances that the virus will get transferred. This is something to be slightly cautious about. 


Don’t let these things drive you away from having your adventure in bed. These are just mere warnings that you should look out for when on the field. Above it, enjoy your time and make your night count.
