It’s not all about the flogging and canes and humiliation. So much of what BDSM is about is Aftercare/after the scene is done.
Much like working out, BDSM requires an adequate warm up (negotiation and consent) and cool down (aftercare).
These are to protect both the D-type’s and s-type’s mental, emotional, and physical states.
With this being said, don’t miss Grey Knight’s informative video on Aftercare and how it can be implemented after play!
