Sorry mum, I didn't know what subspace is, still don't know, actually. I feel dumb.
No no no, that’s completely fine!!!! It’s a really specific term, and there’s nothing wrong with not knowing! I am so proud of you for asking!!! That’s so brave and awesome :)
I didn’t know the term for it either, before I got the original prompt (though I was… shall we say… familiar… with the feeling), so you’re in good company! Here, this is about BDSM, but if you want to read more, this will explain! http://asibdsm.com/subspace-after-care/
If you don’t want to read, that’s completely fine too! In short, subspace in this context means a very floaty type of almost out-of-body experience that people who are subbing (being submissive) can sometimes experience during intense BDSM/role-playing. It’s a really pleasant and incredible experience for a lot of people, but because it’s so intense, it’s the dom’s (dominant person in the scenario) responsibility to make sure that the sub stays safe and can come down from what is essentially a high in a safe and secure way.
I hope that makes some sense! And again, you are wonderful – it doesn’t matter what terms and experiences you are and aren’t familiar with, what matters is that you ask for what you need!! You’re wonderful :) <3 <3 <3 <3
