Aftercare
Communication after scenes is part of what is called aftercare. Aftercare is a time when the partners typically cuddle, decompress, and eventually talk about the good and bad parts of the scene. The importance of quality aftercare cannot be stressed enough. Most people do aftercare naturally, with both partners enjoying it as part of the entire BDSM experience. BDSM often involves an endorphin high and very intense experience, and failure to engage in proper aftercare can lead to sub-drop as these return to more everyday levels.
