So my boyfriend and I were kissing/making out earlier today, and he really likes to kiss my neck. I’m completely okay with this, and he’s very gentle and will go at whatever pace I want. We both trust each other, which I think is great, since our relationship is still pretty new.
Tonight, however, my boyfriend suggested giving me a hickey, and I was not sure how to react. I have never had one before. I told him this and said let’s wait until another time, which he easily agreed to. But I am intrigued by the idea of being bitten lightly, and having the mark. I just don’t know if hickeys are bad, or what the side effects are. Are they dangerous in any way?
Secondly, I know there might be some social stigma around them. My parents haven’t met my boyfriend yet (hopefully they will soon, though), and I’m not sure I want them to see the mark. Also, I don’t really want the other kids at school to notice, because they’ll make a big deal out of it. Can someone please advise me on this? Thank you!
