Dear Poll: When Was Your Last Hickey?

Even in high school when getting a hickey was like wearing a badge of honor, I didn't like them. I love a steamy makeout session as much as the next girl, but not only do I find bruising unsexy, but I just don't really enjoy being nibbled on like that! Needless to say, I was totally shocked when my friend had one peeking out by her collarbone just the other day. I know she’s dating someone new, but still, I thought once you reach a certain age, hickeys were a thing of the past. I know I can’t remember the last time I had one, but when was the last time you were sporting a hickey?

I actually really like them, but my boyfriend's favorite place to put them is on my neck, and that is one place I will not allow - any thing on me needs to be able to be covered up w/ a t-shirt! So, yeah, haven't had one for about 6 mo. Have had a very embarrassing experience when trying to cover one up failed and a professor of mine said something. I just about died on the spot.

I like it when my boyfriend gives me the occasional hickey. The last one was maybe...a month and a half ago? I like it when he gets aggressive, mostly because even when he is, he is still making sure that I am comfortable.

Never. And In My opinion they dont belong on anyone. They look trashy, immature, ridiculous. If i see grown women with hickies I roll my eyes in disbelief because they arent proper for mature people to sport on any part of thier bodies. When i met my now husband, we had a talk and i told him (when he threatened to give me one) that if he ever did (while dating) I would break up with him on the spot, I am a lady not a source for sucking blood and making bruises for his amusement.

My husband and I give them to each other all the time, but nothing that can't be hidden at work.

A longggg time ago, when I was a teenager. I'd guess 1995 or 1996. They're so disgusting...I remember living in a turtleneck for a few days and it was May or June. Ha.

Not since high school. And it wasn't just a nice red mark, it was a huge purple bruise that turned green then yellow on my neck. It looked like someone had attacked me violently. I remember showing up to cheerleading practice the next morning and my coach was less than pleased. She had a strict "no hickey" policy!

I have been married for almost 8 years, and I happen to be sporting two hickeys right now. I don't like them all of the time, but I do enjoy that feeling of being totally "possesed" by my husband once in awhile. Men are very territorial, and giving a hickey lets them "mark their territory" so to speak. My husband does not treat me like a possesion, I am very valued by him. But once in awhile he likes to mark me as his own, and I happen to enjoy it.

What is is about men liking hickeys?!! I was relieved to read the other comments posted. My husband tries all the time and gets upset when I don't let him. I've agreed to have one in less visible place (breast, belly, etc), but it seems that he wants to "mark" me as his. He has begged me to give him one on the neck and wore it like a badge of honor!! I'm glad I'm not the only one refusing to have a big red splotch on my neck now that I'm past 13!

Never had one. My boyfriend doesn't like receiving them, so he doesn't give them, which doesn't really bother me. I'm not such a huge fan of walking around with a huge spot on my neck, or somewhere else visible.

I didnt get them much in high school but I was the makeup whiz so I would occasionally get a frantic call from friends asking me to bring makeup to school to cover their hickeys for them- I even had a boyfriends little sister ask me! that was weird. But the worst for me personally was in college, there was a lot of booze involved and the next day I looked like I have been gnawed on by a fangless vampire(BITE marks ALL over my neck)- but his friends told him he looked like he had been wrestling with a tiger from the scrathes on his back so at least we were even lol. My brother came home from an online date once and the chick had gotten trashed and literally CHEWED on his neck. It took him a long time to live that down we gave him so much crap about it.

i don't mind putting one on my hubby, but i can't stand marks on me, and he knows that. he knows i'll freak out about it. i really shouldn't but i do. when i give one to him, he just shows it off, if its showable... ;)

I am incapable of getting one. No matter how hard or for how long he sucks, I just never get a hickey. My boyfriend has burst blood vessels on my neck, my chest and my stomach trying (Trust me, I felt them!!), but a bruise never shows. He's even tried gripping my skin with his teeth and biting hard for ten seconds...To no avail. Nowadays, his skin must have gotten thicker because he doesn't get them, either!
