in my experience its someone trying to show ownership. and in a jealous controlling way, not a D/S way
a light hickey happens unintentionally on occasion, but the bad ones are just immature. if its something someone got off on, i'd be ok if it was somewhere it didn't show....i can just think of other things i'd rather someone being doing with their mouth
I got one once and didn't realize it. I was so embarrassed. I figure it's probably an accident or whatever, but I never really see them on other people. I'm ok with receiving them so long as they aren't visible.
I've never really cared. I've known some people who are strictly against any marks on them that would be seen in everyday clothes, but are fine with being marked elsewhere. If I see people with them, I've never really thought any differently.
My sister did get one recently and so my mom and I teased her about it a bit, only because we thought it was amusing.
I get them occasionally because I bruise so easily. I couldn't care less.
I'm pretty indifferent when I see them on other people....though when my brother and sister in law came back from their honeymoon it looked like they had been attacked by a legion of octopi, or perhaps an army of sentient, tiny vacuum cleaners...and that was kind of amusing.
I don't care about seeing them on others. But me personally, I don't like getting them they are embarrassing. I dont like giving them either. I just think it's dumb how alot of people give them to their boyfriend/girlfriend so that people know they are taken. I just find it unnecessary. If I really don't trust someone that much, then I just won't be with them, simple as that.
It really depends. Now if it is huge one, then yes, that is trashy, find a different area to suck if you are going to leave big marks on somebodies neck, but a little tiny one, like oops, got carried away, then whatever.
I think it's trashy. My husband and I have jokingly done it to parts of each other that were easily covered and it was very difficult to even leave a mark. I find it hard to understand how someone could do it on 'accident'.
