Why Aftercare Is Important If You Are Into BDSM

We love BDSM, we stock a lot or great BDSM toys and equipment, all you need to bring is your imagination and a nice hard cock! One of the things we have discovered about using BDSM sex toys is that aftercare after every erotic session is very important. Regardless of whether you’re a Dom or a Sub, maintaining good BDSM health is essential for your wellbeing and your sex life!

BDSM Sex Toys and Body Care 

After engaging in BDSM or role-play sessions, body care should be your number one priority. Check the impact areas on your body for visible cuts and wounds, and clean and dress them properly if required. Even if you’re a masochist, avoid poking any wounds, as it will cause them to reopen.

Marks that are temporary (like swelling or bruising) will benefit from a wash and a wipe with antiseptic solution or cream. If you’re a submissive slave you can carry out Body Care checks on your own, or your dominant master will do it for you.

Be gentle with yourself, after heavy impact play, and give your body sufficient time to rest and heal.

BDSM Sex Toys and Mindfulness Needs

While physical pain may be pleasurable for you, it can take a toll on your mindfulness. You can experience an extreme ‘sub-drop’ after BDSM play or being submissive to your master. Some people need to spend time alone to get grounded, while others feel better curled up in the arms of their partner.

As a submissive you may need to process your emotions by writing them down in a journal or diary. Alternatively, you may benefit from taking a long walk and clearing your head of any intrusive thoughts. During this time, do make sure that you eat healthy high protein foods, and that you get a plenty of good quality sleep.

BDSM Toys – Toy Aftercare

Many partners like to clean, maintain and out away their BDSM toys together after a BDSM session. This lets the toys be cleaned well before being out away for the next time but also gives a nice closure to the session before heading to bed together for ‘normal life’.

Some favourite BDSM toys include chastity cages, collars, whips, gags, cuffs and anal toys.

BDSM & Communication

The foundation of the Dom/Master and Sub/Slave dynamic is built on trust and good communication. An important part of BDSM aftercare involves maintaining a healthy level of communication outside of your kinky sex games.

If you are in a relationship with your BDSM playmate then keep your BDSM life and ‘regular’ life separate and don’t blend them. Talk about what you would want to do next time and your favourite experiences so the next BDSM session is even better than the last.

If you are not in a relationship with your BDSM playmate then keep in touch with your BDSM partner via a phone call or text. Communicate how you are feeling, so you feel comfortable and confident the next time.

Some slaves feel that they need their Master to look after them all the time. However, it’s much more beneficial for your wellbeing, if you’re a slave who knows how to look after themselves.
