KARLEE LAURYN MUTH / SHANA LEE KIM / IRINA KERN / AINSLEY ADAMS / KAYLEIGH SWENSON – PLAYBOY SOUTH AFRICA APR 2018
What are your views on hickeys?
I honestly don’t think they are trashy, but it seems like everyone thinks is a thing that trashy people do. I mean, if I have one I try my best to hide it, but I don’t feel less than because I have one. I do live in a small town, but most of the people that I have talked about it are open minded individuals and they think it is trashy. Am I looking at this wrong?
wadewatts23: My wife likes them but they have to be in a place no one else can see them. So normally they are on her breasts.
edubkendo: i love marking and being marked. It always feels really primal and territorial to me. I wish there wasn’t such a cultural stigma around them.
fringeparadox: I guess I associate it with youth and feeling so insecure about your relationship with them that you need to visibly mark your territory for everyone else to see. So more like inexperience than trashy. I no longer do that (giving or receiving) because that doesn’t bring me sexual pleasure. If it still did, then I still would.
medievaleagle: I don’t mind small hickies, but I work in a school, so having them in visible areas isn’t appropriate.
Forty9Squared: I enjoy hickeys giving and receiving more so because I enjoy seeing marks on the body. biting sucking and nibbling is too much fun
Kit4000: I dont have an opinion. I had one recently (im 42) and it was an accident. I have a dark complexion and its a hard thing to do. I did cover it up though.
If I saw someone with one I really wouldn’t think anything of it.
gritstonegirl: I love hickies and I really really wish my partner was into giving them to me. This would be only on hidden places on my body though, not my neck, just because it would be unprofessional at work etc. I like the idea of being ‘marked’.
nic0tinequeen: I love the feeling while I’m getting them, hate wearing them after the fact. I don’t like having them in general because I feel like it’s a very attention grabbing thing and I’m private about my sex life so I don’t prefer to have those kinds of things on display but sometimes in the heat of the moment things happen, I just use coverup so you can’t really see them unless you’re up close and personal.
tacohann: i have a huge thing for hickeys and think they are extremely sexy. my man doesn’t want them on visible places so i respect that and make them where they are covered with clothes. i love when he sucks hard on my neck so that’s how my hickeys are made and i like them, but cover it because of my school usually and because I think it’s kind of inappropriate in general.
TheTinRam: I personally am not into them, but I think it (in my opinion) is perceived as a sign of immaturity and inexperience. It’s what a 13 year old does. There are other ways to stimulate the neck.
I think the trashy stigma comes from perception (again, my perception) that you or the giver want us all to know you hooked up.
Throwawayslides: Not a fan. In my teen years I thought they were cute, but when I had them for the first time I totally hated them considering I had to cover them.
In my opinion hickeys are tolerable in covered area but on neck is a huge no.
holotrash69: I don’t mind them as long as they’re not visible.
pieday00: Illogical and unnecessary.
Smokeandmirrorshere: I like the idea of them but always end up trying to find ways to cover them up after the act. :/
Coidzor: They feel good to give and to receive IME.
Society has a bug up its ass about them, though, so you’re supposed to be discreet about them.
CocoPop44: They’re okay if you’re 15, inappropriate if you’re not a teenager unless in a hidden place.
