This is what my generation thought.

If you got a hickey you would do whatever you could to cover it up.

If you saw a guy or girl with multiple hickeys you instantly thought how trashy it looked.

I was talking with my teen DD about them and she said she sees nothing wrong with them. I was shocked! 

She was like "way to shame women mom"

I never really thought about it. Why do we shame women and men that have multiple hickeys? Or is it just me?

Hickeys not so much trash as being stupid enough to think they look cool.

I get them too. Only more like bite marks. There's always time. If not, we find it.

Trashy. I had a 35 yr old neighbor who constantly had them.

My neighbors constantly have them too. They are young (21 &22) with two kids. I am always asking myself how they find the time.

It's funny how ANY bruise or discoloration of the skin on the breasts, neck, etc are considered "hickeys."

I tend not to bother worrying about it.  Would I like DH to leave a massive hickey right up high on my neck?  No.  But with how many other explanations there are for spots on a neck, why do we ALWAYS jump straight to calling it a hickey?

And so what if a couple gets a little too rough during a time of passion?  Some people like kissing or being kissed on the neck, and mid O you just might get a little over zealous.  It happens.  It's one thing to go around covered in them all the time, but the occassional one really isn't a big deal.

I don't see how it makes any difference to another person, and I agree with your daughter.

It looks trashy to me. Not that they are trash it just looks it.But when I was a teen I didn't think so.

I think they look really trashy. That being said, the skin on my neck is incredibly hyper sensitive after my last pregnancy (ds is 4 months). If dh kisses me and has ANY facial hair at all, it leaves a red mark that looks like one. I don't know why but it sucks.
