Types of play & Triggers

At a Party there can be many types of play, some you may not want to see.
If a scene is not to YOUR liking, take personal responsibility and move to another area.

Nobody will ever require you to watch, or take part in something that you dislike.

Drop & Aftercare

Drop (sometimes called sub drop, dom drop and "The Mondays") is an experience with similar characteristics of depression that occurs after an intense SM scene. It is caused by adrenaline and endorphin crashes after the adrenaline and endorphin spikes that may occur during a scene.
