Aftercare: the final phase of an SM scene transitioning both players from scene-space back to everyday reality.
It’s Purpose: To ease the transition from the elevated states created in a scene and the everyday reality we must return to when the scene is over. To avoid "Crash" "SubDrop" and "TopDrop" (the SM equivalent to the post coital blues: feelings of anxiety, exposure, embarrassment, guilt or emotional overload once a scene has ended).
The viewing audience of your scene might appreciate a little reassurance that all is well, particularly if a scene was loud, heavy or appeared non-consensual.
An idea: let yourself be seen as happy with the scene (especially if you are). A crowd may be spooked if a scene appears to have damaged the well being of one or the other partners.
