Definition - What does Subdrop mean?

Subdrop consists of a variety of symptoms felt by submissives after a particularly engaging and active BDSM scene. The symptoms can include, but are not limited to: fatigue, guilt, depression, hypersensitivity, insomnia, and even flu-like physical symptoms.

Kinkly explains Subdrop

Subdrop is characterized as the after effect of a spike in hormones such as adrenaline and endorphins. It is more commonly experienced with play between bonded pairs than in pickup play as there is a tendency to push limits further with people we are more familiar with. It can display in either physical or mental symptoms. Treatment varies on the individual. Affection, showering, physical activity, eating and drinking, chocolate, antacids, journaling, or objectification are all common forms of aftercare. What each submissive prefers is based on their individual needs. Conversely, dominants can go through the same feelings, when this happens, it is called top drop.
