There is nothing wrong with being affectionate as long as you know the limits.
Hickey or Love bite can mean two things – affection and branding. Lovers tend to be affectionate and romantic with each other thus, they are physically involved. Other times, they can be territorial toward their partner and wants to send a message that she/he is already taken so those who are sniffing needs to back off.
Mexican couple Julio Macias Gonzalez, a 17-year-old teenager, and 24-year-old girlfriend played around when she gave Julio hickeys on his neck.
During their family dinner, Julio started to convulsed and collapsed onto his dinner plate. He was rushed to the hospital despite the doctors effort they weren’t able to revive Julio.
Doctors found out that the love bite on his neck resulted to a blood clot which traveled to Gonzalez’s brain causing the stroke and eventually, his untimely death.
The family blamed his girlfriend and went to find her but she went hiding after the incident.
The family, from the Iztapalapa borough, told local media they had disapproved of the seven year age difference between their son and his girlfriend, but he had refused to break up with her.
This is the second reported case of a love bite causing a stroke.
In 2011, a 44-year-old woman from New Zealand experienced loss of movement in her left arm and was taken to hospital.
According to media reports from the time doctors suspected she had had a stroke but couldn’t work out why, until they noticed a bruise on the right side of her neck, left by a love bite.
They concluded the suction from the love bite had damaged a major artery and formed a blood clot, which travelled to her heart and caused a minor stroke.
Dr Teddy Wu, who treated the woman at Auckland’s Middlemore Hospital, reported the case in a medical journal.
“To my knowledge, it’s the first time someone has been hospitalised by a hickey.”
