  • Know what a hickey is. A hickey, also known as a "love bite" or "kiss mark" is essentially a bruise caused by sucking or aggressively kissing another person's flesh. It is initially red in color, due to broken blood vessels beneath the skin. It will later turn purple or dark brown as it heals.

    Understand why you would want to give someone a hickey. Hickeys are a mark of passion. They are often done in the heat of the moment, out of desire for the other person. Giving someone a hickey is kind of like marking your territory, showing the world that this person belongs to you.
    A hickey can be given and received by both guys and girls -- it's not gender exclusive!

    Build up the tension. 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.
    "Hickey" isn't the sexiest word to whisper into someone's ear, so if you've avoided asking for permission til now, you should mention that you'd like to leave a mark on your partner's neck and see how he or she responds.
    Choose your location. Hickeys work best on thin, delicate skin, which is why they are usually found on the neck. However, the skin in the crook of your elbow or on the inner thigh are also prime locations.
    If you know your partner would be extremely embarrassed at having a visible hickey, don't just put it in the middle of the throat where anyone can see.
    The side of 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.
    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

  • Lol. You give a hickey the same way you get it. By sucking on a part of the body for an extended period of time. You usually don't just sit there tho.
