Too old for hickeys?

Thanks to Jezebel, I found a clip of panelists on "The Doctors" discussing hickeys. Specifically, a woman who died after getting a hickey.


But the post also addresses my initial reaction after seeing the headline: People are still giving hickeys?

As a product of bad teen soap operas of the '90s, I grew up expecting to witness a weekly "hickey plague" upon attending high school and college. That didn't happen.

I've seen maybe five hickeys in my 29-year existence, and I'm perfectly fine with that. Also, I'll proudly note that none of the aforementioned five hickeys were on my own body.

Weigh in: Do people still give hickeys? If so, is it purely a teenage phenomenon?
