How To Get Rid Of A Hickey That’s Cramping Your Style

Man giving a woman a hickey and how to get rid of it.

A good, sexy romp can mean not just an orgasm, but a hickey or love bite along the way. Nothing wrong with that, but you might not want to broadcast your hookup to the world (or, um, at work). We have to be honest: just like any other bruise, a hickey will not go away overnight.

Depending on the intensity, it can take a few days to a week to disappear completely (trust us — we’ve been there). It’s a waiting game — just ask Kim Kardashian — but there are some ways to reduce its appearance and cover up the damage.

Check out our tips for treating and hiding that hickey below, and feel free to share your own tips in the comments. Read more on Your Tango…

Tongues away, everyone! A Dutch Supreme Court panel decided on Tuesday that forcible French-kissing should not be on par with rape. For 15 years, The Netherlands’ criminal code stated a “forced-tongue kiss” and rape both carried a maximum 12-year prison sentence. But this panel of three men and two women overturned a rape conviction on a man who forcibly French kissed a woman, instead ruling that forced tongue kissing is indecent (sexual) assault, which carries a lesser eight-year sentence.

Now, I most certainly do not approve of forced anything in the realm of sexual sexytimes. CONSENT, y’all! But you might be wondering, as I did, why forcing your tongue in someone’s mouth was seen as criminal as forcing your penis in someone’s anus/vagina/mouth . According to the Daily Beast, The Netherlands have a broad definition of rape as “any form of unwanted sexual penetration,” which mean to include penetrating body part into any orifice. I guess these judges decided the law needed to be more nuanced. What do you think of the decision? Agree or disagree? Let us know in the comments! [The Daily Beast]

Awkward NYE Kisses: Kathy Griffin Smooches Anderson Cooper’s Crotch & Jenny McCarthy Maybe Makes Out With A Guy With A Herpes Sore

YIKES!
Which NYE Kiss Was Worse?

First of all, Happy New Year, you guys! Did you kiss anyone special when the clock hit midnight? Sadly, I was smoochless, but even that’s preferable to the kissing Kathy Griffin and Jenny McCarthy engaged in on New Year’s Eve. Griffin was, as usual, hosting CNN’s New Year’s coverage with Anderson Cooper and thought the ball dropping was the appropriate opportunity for her to drop to her knees – to kiss Anderson’s crotch and simulate oral sex on him, live on camera. (First video above.) Multiple times. As he uncomfortably giggled and covered his manly bits with his hands, pushing her away. Nothing says “2013 is going to be a great year!” like sexual harassment, amiright?

Meanwhile, the makeout session between Jenny McCarthy and a soldier (second video above) was far more consensual — the comedienne has a tradition of picking a random New Year’s reveller to lock lips with. After they were done playing tonsil hockey, Jenny interviewed the lucky fellow — and it became painfully clear to everyone watching that something was going on above his upper lip. Something red and inflamed and … sore looking. Lipstick? Possibly. But many on Twitter thought the dude was rocking a herpes outbreak on his mug. Yikes. [Hyper Vocal]

The 7 Best Kinds Of Kisses

As you pass through your teenage years via the valley of lost virginities and the college years of random sex, the simple act of kissing starts getting really underrated. It makes sense, I guess. When you’re 16, the make-out sessions aren’t leading anywhere (at least for me, I started kind of late) so you can just relax and get into it. Making out is EXCITING at that age. It’s fun, it feels amazing. But, when you get a little older, kissing turns into foreplay – a means to an end. Seriously, when was the last time you just made out for hours with a guy without him expecting more?

But kissing is awesome. No matter what, there are some kind of kisses that will always maintain that magical quality. Or, if they don’t anymore, people should revive that! ‘Just’ kissing is nice. Here are 7 of the best kind of kisses ever. Read more…

Kissing After Oral: Yay Or Nay?

Would you be grossed out if a hook-up kissed you after going ‘downtown’? Or would you be seriously offended if a guy rejected a post-bj make out session? Oral sex protocol is a seriously opinion-dividing topic, and I totally get why. A lot of guys just don’t like the idea of going mouth to mouth with someone whose lips have just touched their junk, the same way loads of girls don’t want to get a taste of their own downstairs area. On the flip side, it can feel like a pretty big rejection when a guy turns away from a sweet kiss after you’ve given him the blow job business. It’s just personal preference, which makes dealing with it a bit of a gray area. Read more…

Two of my most major dating anxieties are A) having nothing to talk about and B) the first kiss. I fear having nothing to talk about, not because I don’t have anything to talk about, but if I’m sitting across from an uncommunicative human for an hour, I will feel compelled to fill up every second of that hour with words. And for those of you who similarly fear awkward silences, you know how much energy it takes to fill an entire hour with words. It’s soul sucking.

That was a tangent. I’m really here to talk about first kiss anxiety, which is way, way more serious. I think there are two schools of thought on first kisses: Those who think a bad first kiss indicates incompatibility and those who believe that kissing is not all-important. If you’re a member of Team Kissing Is Not All-Important, it’s all-important for me to be up front and tell you that we don’t have anything to talk about. A bad first kiss is enough to put me off the person … forever. So, when I’m on a date, and we do have stuff to talk about, I am then free to live in fearful anticipation of that first lip lock. I understand that everyone has different kissing styles and preferences, and there is a spectrum of what may be considered enjoyable, but I’ve consulted with other women, and they agree with me, there are certain kinds of kisses that are universally unwelcome. After the jump, some kinds of first kisses that will render romance DOA. Don’t be an offender. Keep reading »
