Kink 101 part 5 'Domspace and subspace, ups and downs'

Domspace and subspace are NOT the playroom or dungeon, but physiological states of being brought on by chemical reactions within the brain itself. Domspace comes from the mix of ADRENALINE and TESTOSTERONE. Adrenaline being released due to excitement, with that edge of fear that they might be getting too close to a limit or whatnot, while Testosterone is of course increased with arousal. Subspace comes from the mix of SEROTONIN and DOPAMINE. Serotonin is released at the onset of pain and Dopamine with the pleasure of orgasm.
Both of these chemical mixes are actually addictive. Too much time with intensive sessions of play and a sub can build up a tolerance to their own brain drugs and seek harmful play to get their 'fix'. This is called 'Sub-Drop'. Severe 'Sub-Drop' that turns to a desperate depression is 'Sub-Burnout'. Burn-out is basically withdrawls from the addiction to the brain drugs created during play. Easy way to avoid addiction? BE RESPONSIBLE! Play on a Bell Curve! work up to a "Big Fix' and then wean down and explore facets of submission that don't include pain. Dominants can do drop and burn, too, but more often just burn. They get bored and get depressed. They get resentful of the commitment and responsibility of Owning another person. Easy way to avoid this? TAKE YOUR TIME and BE CREATIVE! Small steps and new combinations of play can be EXCITING! The anticipation of more, of 'Next Time'! It's better for EVERYone in the long run!
