Subs/littles/pets/slaves/bottoms- subspace and subdrop?

mariedoll mariedoll
My first play scene was an impact scene with bondage and restraints. About halfway through the scene I entered subspace, and it was awesome! Then came the subdrop which my top paid much attention to as far as aftercare went.

I've been in impact scenes and sensory deprivation scenes. In both, I was able to achieve subspace.

My question: Have you ever experienced these? If so, explain your experience, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I have not experienced either in the very few times I have bottomed. It literally does nothing for me. I'm incredibly Top-heavy, and there are times where I wish that I could enjoy bottoming now and again, but it just doesn't do it for me. It does not "get me there."

That aside, I've hit Top/Dom space. Twice, that's it. I've played with many people and in many contexts, but have only reached that point twice. It was damn good.

doesn't really seem like what we'd be into.

I've been in subspace a few times, but I've never experienced subdrop before.

I have experienced both.

For subspace, its rather floaty. I can hear things but it takes me a bit to respond to them.

As for subdrop, that for me I withdraw into myself and don't like to be really spoken to or bothered. It was hard the first time because my Top didn't quite understand it, but once we realized what happened he is happy to just sit with me quietly as aftercare which eventually I just curl into him when I am okay to be touched.

looked it up on wiki

based on what i read there, i'd say i've sorta been there? it kinda sounds like what i call a "mindfuck" (and i don't mean that negatively at all) i didn't know there was a word for it.

subspace is...amazing.
subdrop for me is a consuming nervous feeling where I crave being controlled in lots of minor ways (how I dress where I sit, a hand on my neck to steer me etc.) and if I dont get that for whatever reason I have to sit and cry some of the anxiousness out a couple times a day. Usually lasts around 3 days.

Ciao. Ciao.
I've had a few (brief) experiences of really going into subspace, but haven't explored it nearly as much as I would like to. Haven't experienced any sort of subdrop at all, but I can believe it could happen with a really intense submissive experience.

I've had subspace and subdrop.

Subspace is awesome. It's indescribable for me. Subspace is just raging insecurities and depression.

I've experinced subdrop but never subspace. For me subdrop is one of the worse feelings for me to have, but to describe the experince is near impossible.

I'm not possitive, but I think I've experienced both. If I'm correct, I go into subspace pretty readily (in the right situation).

I haven't experienced it yet, but I might get a chance this weekend. I'm pretty excited about it.

Subspace is something that can't be forced (for me). And I recently found a new Dom after being with a different one for over a year. The first could put me into subspace pretty instantaneously, but we were a lot more 24/7.

Recently trying to explain what puts me there has been a challange that I didn't expect to face with my new Dom. Both of us have a few years under our belt, but we're bother different types of power exchange partners than either of us has had. (He's a sadist, I am primarily servicy. He was used to rope sluts, and I was used to very outlined list of expectations. etc etc.)

SO. Moral of the story. He got me into subspace 2 weeks ago, and it had been a good six months since I'd been there. It was the first time I needed aftercare. I was shaking, I was crying. He wasn't doing anything "hurty" or mean. He had me tied up and was teasing me, and talking to me. but it affected me. So I cried. He untied me, and I asked him to just hold me and not talk to me.

Sometimes subspace is this nice floaty sensation. Sometimes it touches parts of you that you don't want to admit.

Subdrop always sucks. It feels like PMS. And you don't always know what to do with that feeling. It's a sudden depression, and you have to find ways to cope. I find friends and cooking to be a good relaxer. And taking time in a vanilla headspace.

Thanks for this explanation - I'm new to play scenes, and haven't experienced either yet! Looking forward to getting more involved - though from what I've experienced, I can definitely understand play scenes touching on sensitive feelings, and having some issues after. I would love to learn more, and hear others' experiences!
