Kim Kardashian Seems to Have a Hickey: Are Hickies Gross or Great?

Stop the presses! Kim Kardashian appears to have a hickey, and it just might be from Kanye West. Despite the fact that Kim has psoriasis (a skin disease marked by red, itchy, scaly patches), TMZ says the red mark on her neck "DEFINITELY originated from Kanye West‘s mouth" -- or so "sources close to Kim’s neck confirm."



We are somewhat inclined to believe it's a hickey -- the mark was first seen the day after Kim and Kanye went on a movie date in NYC. (When asked by the "Today" show's Ann Curry if she and West are dating, Kim replied, "I completely respect and understand that you have to ask these questions, but as I've said before, Kanye and I have been friends for years. You know, you never know what the future holds or where my life will take me.")

So ... are hickeys making a comeback? Despite the fact that they seem very junior high, How About We provides a few reasons why people might still give (and receive) them:

1. They’re Reliving the Golden Days When Hickeys Were The Norm. The Golden Days where you knew nothing about your reproductive organs.

2. Actual Enjoyment. They might like how it feels to give a hickey, or they might want a hickey in return and hope their partner will return the favor.

3. Just Because They Can. People do stupid stuff all the time just because they can.

4. They’re Marking Their Territory. They might suck on if they want people in public to know, if they want to stir up the pot, or if they want to be kind of manipulative about ownership in the relationship.

Do you think hickeys "just happen" in the heat of the moment? Or are they a juvenile way to mark someone as your property? (We're talking to you, Kanye.)

    Eh, neither. Best to try to cover them up, but that can be hard. For some people, the neck is an erogenous zone, so I don't see it as terribly unreasonable that someone would be walking about with an uncovered hickey.

    Great as in I enjoy the process of getting them! The mark that's left over is just something I have to deal with for a few days afterwards lol. Concealer and scarves (if it's cold enough) become my best friends.

    I think they went out of style in the 1960's. Hickies were a sex symbol fad, no big deal.

    A silly fad mainly from the 1960's of sucking a spot on your lover's neck leaving a big red mark. It was a sign of sexiness.

    I do my best to keep hickies hidden, but sometimes you just get too wrapped up in the passion.

    One once and a while isn't terrible, but when someone makes a habit of constantly walking around with multiple neck bruises, they aren't making themselves look too great.
  • strawberry GeminiWolf 2012/04/10 04:24:32

    I saw hickies more of a fad than passion. You wanted other people to see hickies on your lover's neck. I gave my boyfriends plenty of them, but did not like getting them. Stupidly in the 1960's it was more of a status symbol of sexuality.
  • GeminiWolf strawberry 2012/04/10 04:27:18

    I think you are right, they are a fad to a lot of people.

    However, not getting into too much detail here, sometimes things do get heated enough to create marks.... but as I said before, you shouldn't be covered in them on a daily basis.
