Hickeys are underrated—there, we said it. When is the last time you gave or received one? Maybe last weekend or maybe back in high school—either way, we’re making a case to bring them back. They’re hot, they’re fun, and they leave you with a memory from your sexy night with your partner.
If hickeys suddenly make you feel nostalgic, you’re not alone. When we were prepping this story, our team laughed reminiscing about all the ways we used to hide the love mark from our parents. “It’s a curling iron burn!” Or aggressively rubbing it with ice, which never worked, and twisting a lipstick cap over the skin to try and remove it. Can’t forget the classic turtleneck coverup even when it’s deadass hot out. We all had our tricks.
That was then; now we’re all for them. Today, we’re sharing steamy places to give a hickey.
Editor’s note: only do this if you and your partner are both comfortable with it.
The neck, of course. Take it to the next level and try to suck in the shape of your initial. You can experiment with this one on any part of the body actually. HOT.
If you don’t want to flash your hickey, here are some sneaky areas that only you and your partner will see. It can be your sexy little secret.
The chest. Suck hard close to the nipple until you can see a visible little spot.
The hip bone. If you’re into lightly biting, this is a great place for steamy foreplay before you uh … go down on your partner.
The inner thigh. While you’re giving oral, pause and suck on your partner’s thigh (like super close to the goods) and then get back to giving. *insert angel face emoji*
Back of the neck. Give your partner a nice scalp massage and then start kissing and sucking the side or back of their neck.
Inside of the arm. This area of skin is super delicate, which makes it easy to leave a hickey.
