It strongly depends on the person and the feelings you experience. So in the end aftercare is a really personal theme and everybody has to find out what works for them best.
Note! Aftercare is not only for the submissive person, it can also be a need of the dominant person.
Aftercare after Kittenplay
Sometimes some aftercare routines can be a good way to get yourself out of kittenspace. That can be some simple cuddling or drinking a cup of tea. But sometimes people need more – as an example after a long time on the ground on your knees or some kind of spanking. There, you can put on some lotion and put yourself in cozy blankets laying on the bed. Take a warm shower or bath. Just find something that feels relaxing for you. Other things that are a good go to is snacks because you want to keep your nutrition up, relaxing music and even naps can be a very big world of difference and a very healing process for the individuals involved.

When you feel well in kitten play that can also be your option to calm down. There are several possibilities to calm down as a kitten. If it’s cuddling with your caregiver, or just laying in some cozy blankets and have some snacks. Pro tip, putting a blanket in a dryer for a few minutes can be a very comforting thing. Along with taking a nice hot bath or watching your favorite tv shows and or movies is also a great way to come back down from that high level of energy.
