Subspace

Sub space is described by some as flying, or floating, in the context of a BDSM scene, is a psychological state that can sometimes be entered by the person bottoming in the scene.

Subspace is a metaphor for the state the submissive's mind and body is in during a deeply involved play scene. Many types of BDSM play invoke strong physical responses. The psychological aspect of BDSM also causes many submissives to mentally separate themselves from their environment as they process the experience. Deep subspace is often characterized as a state of deep recession and incoherence. Deep subspace may also cause a danger in newer submissives who are unfamiliar with the experience, and require the dominant to keep a careful watch to ensure the submissive isn't placing him or her self in danger. Many submissives require aftercare while returning from subspace.

It is said that subspace is the point at which the body begins to produce endorphins in order to fend off physical pain. This rush of chemicals in the body makes the submissive feel good and allows them to forget about anything that might be uncomfortable. Their brains are telling them that all is right and they can
continue from the scene into the moments and hours after the scene is over, this is where aftercare is required from their Dominant.

Personally i have never experienced such intensity after a scene but i still live in hope that that may happen for me one day when the right Dominant comes along. But i am sure that if i asked the same question to each submissive i would get a different answer from each one as each submissive who has experienced subspace will be individual to her.

Has any of my readers experienced sub space and if so how did it feel to them?

  1. Subspace for me doesn't come only from pain, although I have reached it in that way. It is more of a place I reach during particularly intense play, when I reach a point where I get past all the self consciousness and my only focus is on Him and what He needs from me. For me, it is a strange combination of total clarity and focus on Him and myself, and distance, because everything else feels rather fuzzy and far away.

  3. Hello blossom, I have reached it many times, and agog described it well. I would add that it almost feels like a religious experience, and if you are religious, you will likely feel that you are in communion with the divine. In my experience, the idea that it is basically pain that is required, I think that is bull. Each person is different. If someone's primary kink is pain, then sure. I think it is the intense immersion into whatever your driving kink is. If it is bondage, then that will do it. If it is service, that will... etc.

    Good luck. It is wonderful.
