Dammit. I love this!… except that last one really bums me out. :(
Meh. Don’t know if I’ll keep this.
Noticed your tag “after-neglect makes me wanna cry”, and I just wanted to point out that that’s not necessarily what we’re seeing here. For some people, aftercare means being given space after they’ve gone through something difficult.
Or maybe the scene isn’t over yet, and he has more suffering, mental or physical, to endure, because that’s what he and his top are both into, before it’s all over and the tender part happens.
Yeah, I tried to see it that way. Couldn’t make it work. What you say is totally true… in real life. In porn, not so much I think. The collapse-to-the-floor-alone thing is very very common in this genre. Maybe even a trope. Somehow I don’t believe it’s about what the bottoms need, but more about what the viewers are presumed to want: to not see the top, to see the bottom in extremis afterward which a) proves it was hard, and b) provides just a little more sado-yay. It’s that b-part that wrecks me.
There’s “let me give you some space,” and then there’s “you’re on your own, Jack (bwahaha!)”
I admit it’s a personal sensitivity, mostly caused by seeing this over and over in porn. (One time I literally cried at the end of a video like this. Like, hard. The session itself was panty-soakingly awesome! But when it was over, dude was sooo fucked up, and they just left him shuddering on the floor, mumbling that he was cold; he had to untie himself with barely-functional fingers which took an agonizing forever, and then— and this was the part I couldn’t take— he looked to someone off-camera and begged for water, and I just COULDN’T. Boom: instant wracking sobs. (They never brought him the water, btw. Fade to black with him still on the floor trying to rub the life back into his own limbs. God. I’m getting choked up right now.))
I dunno. I realize it doesn’t quite make sense. I guess what I’m saying is, it’s some kind of serious limit for me. I couldn’t do this. I can barely even watch it.
Weird, right? Yeah, I know. *shrug* I’m some sort of sadist, but I guess I’m not this sort.
