How to Give Someone a Hickey

Rites of passage during adolescence, hickeys are an obvious sign of romantic possession.

You will need

  • A willing partner
  • Lots of suction

Step 1 Select location Pick the location for the hickey. Hickeys are generally located on the neck where they are easily visible.

Step 2 Position mouth Form a circle with your lips and place your mouth against your partner’s skin.

Step 3 Use suction Draw your breath inward, essentially sucking their skin into your mouth. Be sure not to use your teeth, and stop immediately if your partner is in pain.

Step 4 Wait for results Wait a few moments for the result. If the redness fades away, try again, but with more force.
