A stamp of passion for some, while an embarrassing display of bedroom aggression for others, a scratched bruise often called a love bite or a hickey is one aspect of lovemaking that is usually greeted with raised eyebrows! Hickeys are always a matter of pride. However, hickeys or love bites, tend to become embarrassing especially when you are all grown up and a member of a respectable society. There’s nothing wrong in getting a hickey. But it is a impression of a private encounter you must have had with your lover. It is very obvious you would not want to go to office, especially when you have to attend a rather important meeting sporting a hickey on your neck. You would rather prefer your bedroom secrets remain in the closet, rather than be blared in full view of the public.

It seems like no matter where you look for advice on getting rid of love bites, the first thing anyone ever has to say is how tacky a love bite looks and that you just shouldn’t ever allow your significant other to give a love bite in the first place. I’m here to tell you that for the most part, that’s a load of crap. I will agree that it can sometimes be embarrassing and that you may not want your boss, co-workers, teachers, classmates, or parents to see that you have one. But here’s the thing: if you’re a living, breathing, feeling person with any amount of hot blood running through your veins, you’ll get a love bite from time to time. Not only does it feel too damn good to not allow it to happen, but the person giving a love bite knows it, and that makes it fun.

Love bites are nothing more than little bruises on someone’s neck. Not that that’s the only place they can occur; the neck is just where they’re usually located. But enough of this. I’m pretty sure you don’t care about how it happens. You just want to know how to get rid of love bites and how to do it right now.

My advice is let nature take its course.

What would you do if you had a bruise on your leg or arms? That’s right. Nothing. The love bite will most certainly go away on its own without any help from you whatsoever. All you’ve gotta do is give it some time. In most cases, a love bite will disappear after a period of anywhere from about five days to a week. If it lasts longer than that, don’t forget to give your compliments to the person who gave it to you. They will be PROUD but at the same time gently remind them to do it in a discreet area next time.
