The New Way To Say “I Heart You” — With Bite Marks?
Remember in high school when you’d get a hickey and proudly show it off the next day at school? Oh wait, you didn’t do that—you were too busy covering that thing up with a turtleneck even if it was 100 degrees out. Well, let’s just say that today’s teenagers are obviously devolving (remember how they’re getting high off on morning glory seeds?) and are way more into making their personal life public than we were. They’re also obsessed with vampires and vampiric love stories, thanks to “Twilight,” “True Blood,” “The Vampire Diaries,” etc. So it was only a matter of time before giving your makeout partner bite marks became the new hickey. Yep, that’s right. Teens are biting each other—hard—on the arms, neck, and even face to show their affection. According to a CNN intern, “High schoolers say it’s a way to show someone you care about them and that you are chosen—just like in the movies. Bite marks have now even started to be a status symbol.”
So what do you think—are bite marks hot or … ouch? [CNN]
