Your Stance On Having A Hickey

Contributor: mjtheprincess mjtheprincess
Is it slutty to have a hickey? Is it a sign of ownership? Something else entirely?

So nasty to see a hickey on someone...either gender...trashy
Totally a sign of ownership, I'll stay away
I laugh, knowing it was probably an accident and the person is so embarassed
I never see people with hickeys...

I've had them before on the neck and don't mind normally, but its not something I strive for.

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 haven't ever seen anyone with a hickey on them before, but I wouldn't think anything about it. Honestly if I had one on me I wouldn't mind.

My ex left SO many hickies on me. I appreciate that my boyfriend now doesn't do it because, well frankly, he's just better at everything.

It's funny but tacky, IMO.

I don't really see people with hickeys. I don't really care about them either way.

Eh. I love being bitten, so I end up with them sometimes. I've never really cared too much.

I thought these were a high-school thing. After that they're a little silly, I think.

I'm not a fan of them, but have to admit I rarely see one.

I haven't had one in a long time. I bruise really easy so it wouldn't be hard to give me a hickey.

You have to work pretty hard to intentionally give someone one (I will concede accidents do happen). I say put on a scarf

I think they are trashy and to me if you are going to leave them on the body they should be able to be covered up.
Contributor: Liz2 Liz2
If I get a hickey or give one it is purely accidental. I then try to cover it up with makeup.
Contributor: WhoopieDoo WhoopieDoo
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.

it doesn't even matter! I like getting them.

I remember getting my first hickey at sleepaway camp and the counselors called my parents. Mortifying. I'll never do that again.

Sometimes it happens in the heat of the moment. Yeah it's
slutty, yeah it's trashy and it's really amusing but it happens.

A hickey is just a hickey. I dont really think anything of it
Contributor: gsfanatic gsfanatic
It's a hickey, not a big deal. I laugh when people get embarrassed by it though
Contributor: loveme loveme
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.

I don't see hickeys as a big deal at all, they're just fun. People get so embarrassed by them (including my partner) but I honestly don't see what the big deal is!

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'.

I've never had one, so I don't really get it. I have had bite bruises though, and I loved every single one of them.

Yep, I think so too. I don't like getting or making them either.
