S&M Playing and BDSM Aftercare - They Go Hand in Hand

What is Subspace ?

Subspace or subdrop is a sort of mythological thing in the world of sadomasochism. It can be part of BDSM play and sparks a need for S&M aftercare. Some claim it basically does not exist, others that it is the most wonderful experience a sub can find during BDSM play sessions.

What is Subspace or sub drop supposed to be then ? It has been described as a trance like feeling during play where impact, pain and senses melt together in a form of high. Pain is processed as pleasure. Sensations are no longer what they might seem. Photos provided by ThePainFiles.com Genuine BDSM Lifestyle Movies

Is Subspace Real ?

Is subspace real ? In a sadomasochistic relationship it is certainly something many subs describe as experiencing. It is real to them. It is real in that moment. That very particular place the submissive enters when she completely trusts her Dominant. Entirely immerses herself in an intense scene. Making the outside world disappear. As if in a trance. The sub is probably not able to making rational selections. She is entirely dependent on her dom.

Is it a form of short lived coma then ? Not as such. It is possible to snap out of it. By mistake or deliberately. The world has not completely disappeared.

Why Does Sub drop Happen ?

In physical terms it is hard to define exactly. However a mixture of letting go in general, putting yourself in the trust of the dominant controlling you mixed with the excessive quantity of endorphins operating via your veins is approaching an explanation. Endorphins do give a high, the trust lets you flow away in a high with them.

Can a sub drop or trip into subspace be programmed ? No. It appears to be very individual what triggers the drop. How much it takes to trigger it. How long it lasts. How easy it is to snap out of. Trying to achieve subspace by way of an extreme beating might work for some, whilst a slow dominance session works for others.

Aftercare for Subs

Obviously it is the responsibility and accountability of the Dom to supply for the welfare of his sub, as she has trusted him to do. It is usually the Dom’s accountability after the scene to assist the sub to return to “vanilla house” after the scene. This entails offering each bodily and emotional assurance to the sub, till he/she regains his/her sense of self, and is named, “aftercare”.

Some will need a cuddle. Some will need a glass of wine. Some will need to quietly rest at your feet. Whichever way, as a dom your responsibility extends beyond the end of the actual session. Until the sub is back to her normal everyday, vanilla, self. BDSM aftercare is not to be a casual afterthought that can be abandoned.
