Dear Yvonne, What happens to make you get a hickey? -Julia
Dear Julia, When a lover sucks or bites on an area of your body, the bruise that forms is called a hickey. This is caused by blood vessels breaking under the skin. The size and color of a hickey is determined by how long and how strongly your partner feasted on you.
She is the author of several books including, "Touch Me There! A Hands-On Guide to Your Orgasmic Hot Spots."
