Understanding Aftercare


Aftercare is a fundamental component of BDSM, crucial for the emotional and physical well-being of both submissive and dominant partners. Traditionally, aftercare discussions focus primarily on the needs of the submissive, but it's equally important to recognize that dominants also require care and attention. 


This article explores the often-overlooked aftercare needs of dominants, the phenomenon of "Dom drop," and practical ways to support and nurture the dominant partner post-scene. We'll also cover how to provide aftercare in the days after a scene and ideas how to do this remotely and virtually.


Please note that these are purely examples and not all dynamics require aftercare nor are some of the suggestions given necessary or acceptable for some relationships.
