Do you really mean /after/ "-", or rather /at/ "-" ?  My understanding 
is that TeX will never hyphenate after an explicit hyphen, but may (of 
course) hyphenate /at/ one.
If you mean /at/ an explicit hyphen, then the following may offer some 
ideas :

    \hsize = 3 em

    \exhyphenpenalty = \maxdimen

    \noindent begin anti-dis-es-tab-list-ment-arian-ism end\par

    \noindent begin antidisestablistmentarianism end\par
