Abandonment is a type of play that involves a sub being left alone for long periods of time, often in sensory deprivation, bondage, tethered or imprisoned, while the dom attends to other ('more important') matters
Abandonment can take place in various positions. The submissive can be restrained on the floor, or on a bed or in a cage or cupboard. Alternatively, the submissive may not be restrained at all, but just told to sit or stand in a room. The only constant is that they are left alone and largely ignored.
Abandonment appeals to people who may be aroused at the sense of rejection and humiliation, but at the same time the feeling of being abandoned creates a sense of security, that they are under the control of their dominant partner even in absence.
