Something Quiet, Something Just for You

Like most people who get tingles in the back of their heads, I didn't know this was a thing until recently. When I was a kid, it was a fleeting and rare experience, but so delightful. It would often happen when someone was explaining a new concept to me and it finally clicked — I thought of it as the physical feeling of being deeply interested in something. Then, a few months ago, I fell down one of those internet rabbit holes into the world of ASMR, or Autonomous sensory meridian response. I won't go into the details of what this terminology means, but go ahead and read the Wikipedia article.

Basically, what I discovered were hundreds of YouTube videos designed to give viewers the tingles. “Whisperers” speak quietly to the camera, sometimes tapping their nails on things or describing items like jewelry collections. The whisperers are usually young and female, although there are some men as well. Many of them also do “role play” videos, in which, for example, they pretend to give viewers haircuts or makeovers, or pretend to fill out their information in a doctor's office. So far, these videos haven't produced head fireworks for me, but they are mesmerizing to watch.

One of the most famous whisperers, and one of the whisperers recently featured on a This American Life segment, is Maria of the YouTube channel GentleWhispering. Her videos regularly have hundreds of thousands, sometimes millions, of views. Maria is blond and charming, with a soft Russian accent, and when I contacted her to ask for an interview, she replied enthusiastically. When we spoke, she immediately put me at ease.

For Maria, the tingles are “like a warm buzzing in the back of my head,” or like someone “pouring warm sand on your head, that it travels down your shoulders and your back, or like an electricity static, just a very harmless one.”

To start, would you like to just tell me a little bit about how you first got interested in ASMR?

Well, I found out about ASMR around 2009, I was going through some stressful times and some depression, I had a lot of anxiety, everything was just falling apart, and I was looking for ways to relax myself. I wasn't able to afford any kind of a therapy, so I decided to do it all by myself. I was watching relaxation videos and massage videos, and I was always looking for massage videos that would tingle in my head, that will trigger me in a way, and they were actually helping me to relax a lot. Once I was watching a massage video and I saw in the suggested videos it said “whisper video.” So I thought, I've never heard of that, and I click on it. As soon as I started watching the whisper video, I just got hit by the wave of tingles and I got so excited that I finally found the perfect video for me to watch. And then I went to comments, and I noticed that a lot of people were saying the same thing, “oh my goodness, you give me so much tingles.” After watching some of the whisper videos – they were really therapeutic to me, at the time of anxiety attacks and panic attacks I would have I would watch one and it would just kind of put me in a different place. After a while, I noticed the term people were using, which is ASMR, so I just googled it and my knowledge started from there. 

I notice that you say therapeutic, and I wonder if that's how you think about it when you're making videos as well?

Oh, yeah, definitely, one hundred percent. Creating the tingle-inducing atmosphere is number one criteria for me. The second one – as you know, most of the ASMR videos always end with a lot of relaxation or some kind of preparation for sleep, so my second priority when I'm making the video is to help people with sleep, because I think 50 percent of my viewers watch these videos just to fall asleep – they don't watch it for tingles or anything. I get so many messages, 99 percent of them say how grateful they are and how beneficial this whole journey has been since they found this community, so I am absolutely 100 percent sure that there is therapeutic use for this. I wish I knew how to properly use it, I use it to the best of my knowledge and creativity.

Do you feel like it would be important to have a scientific research or confirmation of ASMR, or does that matter to you very much?

Yeah, I think it would benefit our community greatly, just to know at least how it's all working, and what triggers it and how. I personally really want to know myself, just because I work with it all the time, and I hear about it all the time, and I kind of have a picture in my head, but I can't describe it medically. And plus, it's going to be really nice to have a backup story, some kind of a theory behind us, so we can somehow explain it more to the public and to the media, because a lot of people find it just creepy or funny or weird or fetishy, you know. And we can only say hey, it's not that, this is what it is, but in the end, if we cannot support our thoughts or theories, nobody's going to really take serious interest in us I think.

Have you ever had any kind of embarrassment around that reaction, like that it's weird or creepy?

Yeah, definitely. In my previous marriage my husband did not support that at all, he didn't have ASMR. He didn't think it's an actual thing at all, he thought that it was just something in my head and I'm mistaking some kind of a feeling for it. A lot of times, yeah, probably I was laughed at for it, and made jokes about it, about whispering. I don't take offense, because I can imagine what it looks like to a person who doesn't feel it. So, that's another thing why we definitely have to have some kind of medical backup to it, maybe if it is even connected to some kind of fetish, but we can't say that it is, it's like, there's nothing, it's difficult.

Right. I feel like a lot of people do see the videos as being sexual or sensual in a way, and I don't feel like that's my exact reaction to them, but they're definitely intimate, and I wonder how you kind of interact with that intimacy.

I like to think of myself at least as like a mom when I'm doing it, or just like a caring person, playing the role of somebody. Whenever I create my videos, I always have to go back and read some of the messages that I got, like the most inspiring ones. I actually have them saved in my computer, so every time I read them, it puts me in a state where I actually wanna help or just kind of give something special, I just want to share. I have to be in that particular character in that moment to actually go and make a video. Otherwise, if I'm very distracted or I'm stressed out with myself, it's not gonna ever work out, and I'm not gonna even try to make a video that day.

It is definitely very intimate. Just because I know how much it helps other people. And that little percent of people who actually watch it for the creepiness, and for the personal purposes, I don't think about at all. That's fine. Anything that's online is gonna be sexualized at a certain point anyway. Anything, absolutely. If you wash your hands, or if you do hair tutorials, it's all gonna be sexualized at a certain point.

"... the most inducing trigger for me is a slightly soft spoken almost whispered woman's voice with a lot of lip-smacking going on"

I think it has a lot to do, first of all, with whispering. Because I think that our brain, our subconscious, reacts to whispering and soft speaking as if it's a secret, as if you're being a part of something very interesting, very intriguing, very mysterious, and you just pay attention to it, and you feel like a part of something really special. Plus, whispering and soft speaking, usually nobody ever talks to you like that in real life, unfortunately, especially when you're an adult, and you might be missing that intimacy and that kind of innocent state, when somebody's taking care of you. So I guess it's just a lot of things mixed in together, and it creates a certain, maybe just a sensual experience.

I like what you said about something interesting or mysterious, because that's definitely the kind of thing I respond to. I wonder if you have particular things that work better for you or that you are more interested in?

I have to say, I have very diverse triggers. I've been watching [the videos] for four years now or something, and eventually your triggers will switch back and forth, and you'll stop being triggered by certain things, and discover new things for yourself, it's like a whole journey that you're going through. I would say the most inducing trigger for me is a slightly soft spoken almost whispered woman's voice with a lot of lip-smacking going on (laughs).

Interesting!

I know, it's gross, but I don't know, it triggers me a lot, especially the woman's voice. I'm not triggered ever by a male voice for some reason, which is weird, because for example my boyfriend, he also experiences ASMR, and he triggers mostly from men. And talking about sexual experiences, he is definitely straight. I don't think it's sexualized or anything, because if you watch male whisper videos they're not really sexually entertaining at all (laughs), but a lot of people are triggered from them.

The list is so diverse. We're going from different scratching and tapping sounds, to hair-brushing and very monotone sounds, like little drops of rain or little rubbing sounds, things like that. And then we're going to voices and crinkling sounds, so there's a whole bunch of things that you can choose from, and you can really discover new ways to trigger yourself as well. Before ASMR community I don't think I have ever been triggered by scratching or tapping, where now I trigger like crazy.

Do you feel like there's kind of a canon list of things, or are you constantly coming up with new ones? How do you decide what you want to make a video about?

Well, mostly I just go through requests and what people want. A lot of times I just go back to my old videos and I see what people say about certain triggers, if I tried something new for example and people liked it, like blowing into ears. I don't think anybody had ever done it before. I just sort of tried it and then it just got crazy, and now I'm using it in all of the videos (laughs), just because I keep getting requests, more and more, and everybody keeps saying please add it just a little bit in the next video too. So it kind of gives me a list of things that I'm supposed to use in the video next time. I know a lot of ASMR artists make videos in one take, they just sit down and they create a video and they post it. Unfortunately, I'm sort of a perfectionist and I have to work on it as much as I can.

Can you tell us more about that process?

As soon as I find an idea for a future video that I'm going to be working on, for example, I would think of what I can actually use in the video. I would think of what kind of sounds, what kind of plot I would have, what kind of different things I'm going to be adding here and there. Then I start thinking about sounds, like paper or sounds of rubbing, scratching, then I test it all out around the microphone, and I see if it's going to be applicable for that particular video. And then I kind of just start rehearsing it here and there, I will try one thing, saying one thing, then another, it's kind of trial and error every time. But I would say a regular video, like a role play, would take me usually about 10 hours total to make.

Do you write any kind of a script or do you just make up what you're going to say as you go along?

I usually do the research about a certain thing that I'm going to be talking about, for example if its a tutorial, I'll be watching a lot of videos of different kinds. I would listen to them, and see how they describe their movement and things. If it's a role play, same thing. I would watch either other people's role plays to get inspired, to kind of give me um, a line or two (laughs). Or I would watch a professional video, if it's a doctor role play or things like that. Right now I'm working on a witch video and I'm reading a lot about witches, and what they say, and what they are, and things like that. So, I just go through research and I kind of pick out little things here and there to add to the conversation. I'm never trying to overdo my plots. A lot of people I know really like intelligent talk in their role plays, and that's fine. I just don't feel natural if I have to memorize the script for example.

How do you feel like ASMR interacts with the rest of your life?

I'm still mostly in ASMR when I'm in the community, when I'm online. In real life nobody really knows who I am. I'm just a regular person, and that's great. My boyfriend helps me a lot. Other than that, none of my friends or family experiences it. So, I never really bring it up. They do know that I have a channel, and they are very proud of me, and they support me. They were at first shocked a little bit, they didn't understand what exactly I was trying to tell them that I do. But once they checked it out and they saw a lot of positive reviews and feedback, and how much love I receive. They're really happy for me.

I think the most ASMR conversation or experiences I do is with my boyfriend. We test each other out, too, to have physical ASMR inducing acts, like brushing hair or saying certain things, or like suddenly or gently just touching each other at certain points, and to feel if you will trigger with that. We just kind of play around with it, with a little bit of touch. It's just, a really incredible new way of bonding with another person, almost on a spiritual, like an energy level. But again, even though it is intimate, it's not in a sexual way, arousing. It's just a different connection with another person.

"[S]ometimes I make very sensual videos with a lot of touching of the camera and blowing into the ear and I know that a lot of men are looking for that kind of treatment from a woman."

How do you interact with that community? Do you feel like you've gotten to know people well, or is it mostly just watching videos?

No, I definitely made a lot of friends there, some very close friends, you know, some enemies, but that's fine. Mostly people are really respectful and really supportive. I found a lot of ASMRrtists who I am personally inspired by, a lot of ASMRrtists inspired by me. It's kind of like a really tiny community that interacts with each other, and at the same time it's never a competition. Bigger ASMRtists support little ASMRtists, and kind of promote them throughout their path, and I think that's really great.

A lot of people are writing messages just thanking me as well. Like lawyers or firefighters for example. They're saying that it's very hard for them to sleep and they found that the ASMR tires their brain enough, that after you experience a lot of tingles you feel tired enough to actually fall asleep. It's like, it's satisfied, but exhausted at the same time, on just a really interesting level, cause it's not like you're exhausted after food, or sexual intercourse.

I was curious if you feel like your audience is more of one gender or another, or if it's a mix.

I always watch my statistics and if I have an overweight of a certain gender I try attracting the other one, so to say. I don't think it's a certain plan, I just think that it's more fair this way. So, you can see sometimes I make very sensual videos with a lot of touching of the camera and blowing into the ear and I know that a lot of men are looking for that kind of treatment from a woman. Again, maybe not necessarily on a sexual level, but on just, an interacting level. They want to be talked softly to. And then the ladies often really like the hair tutorials and little nail show-and-tells and things like that, little cutesy things. Right now, I have, I think, 52% male audience and 48% female, so it's really almost equal. It's always actually been like that.

When you are making videos or thinking about your audience, how do you think about how much personal information you're willing to share and what kind of things you're not willing to share?

I used to make much more personal videos I think, before I hit a certain number of subscribers, where I felt, just keeping certain things for myself from now on. I'm still trying to do the vlogs here and there, because a lot of people are really interested in me as a person, and I really appreciate that. I don't think I'm ever scared to share information about my life. I just don't think that there's a lot of things that people will be interested in, like about my job, or I don't like to complain in my videos. I don't like to bring out some kind of really sensitive subjects, like politics or religion, because it will always create only negativity along the line. Which is why I'm always trying to be cautious about what I'm saying, because I do realize how many people watch me.

"I was thinking they could even put it in airplanes, when people travel and they have a fear of flight and they need something to help them fall asleep."

A lot of people are underage, and I have to mind my tone, and watch what I'm saying and what kind of words I'm using. I've had a lot of messages from teenage girls and young women saying that, “you're like my role model,” so I have to always keep up with that understanding, of what exactly do you like about GentleWhispering. It's still part of me, it's the biggest part of me, but in real life I'm not all quiet and very slow movement. I am, but I'm still a normal person. But, I feel like it's just so flattering when somebody tells you that “you are my role model,” and that already creates some kind of responsibility for me. At the same time I don't mind sharing my life with them. I tell them certain things so they know what’s happening in my life, but at the same time I'm still trying to keep my personal life inaccessible.

Do you feel like there's anything that ties people who experience ASMR together besides just that they get this feeling? Is there something they have in common outside of that?

I have definitely noticed that a lot of people find our community at the hardest time of their life. Whether they lost someone, or if they're going through a depression, or they have to prepare for exams and they're looking for ways to relax, and kind of just let go, for them to be able to sleep. I've noticed the majority of people, that's kind of how they find our community, online, through searching for relaxation. So that's definitely something that we all have in common. Most people are using our community as a getaway. They might not even be participating in the community in a way. But, as soon as they're in, they just feel like they are a part of something really tiny, but something so special. Nobody's yelling at you, nobody's making fun of anybody, nobody’s hating on anybody.

The majority of entertainment today, it's always hate on something, or making fun of somebody. Even though it is fun, after a while, you just don't wanna deal with that anymore. You just want something quiet, something done just for you. Like role plays or whisper videos. Just because it puts you in a place where you are the center of the whole experience, as a viewer. You don't want to see, you know, no more loud sounds, no more explosions, no more high tech quality things. You just want a basic connection with another person, to see that there's still simplicity in the world. You don't need so much drama in your life. You already have it anyway. Everybody has their own troubles on a daily basis, and their own worries, and things that they have to deal with, and work. A lot of people find the ASMR community to be that getaway, that island of peace where they can come in and just let go finally.

"I've noticed the majority of people, that's kind of how they find our community, online, through searching for relaxation."

To me, that sounds like a lot of responsibility for someone who is creating these videos. And you also talked about being a role model, and I wonder if that ever feels stressful to you.

It definitely is a lot of responsibility for me, just because I know that a lot of young women watch my videos and they watch how I interact with other people, they can read my comments and my replies to other people. They see how I interact with other ASMRtists as well. It's not just me who is doing it all. It's the whole community that's working together so well, that everybody's just on top of things with each other. I think it's just the whole experience.

GentleWhispering for many people is that very soft woman, she's very – I'm talking about it like it's not me – I’m just saying, you know, it's still a certain person on the camera. Because in real life I'm more bubbly. And even though I'm still like that, I'm not just her. A lot of people are used to seeing a woman as independent nowadays, like an independent strong woman, knows what she's doing, she goes to her training, and that's so great. At the same time, a lot of women forget about that connection with femininity, that it can be nice to be softer a little bit. So a lot of people, I think, because they lack that in everyday life, or they don't have a real role model in their everyday life, like a mother or a sister, they look for that softness of a woman, to kind of pay attention to it, maybe adapt some of her habits as well.

The whole whispering community, all the women here, all the ladies, are always very gentle, whispering. They get all slow, they calm down, and a lot of people want to be that as well in real life. They want to learn how to be more soft. They're just looking for more gracefulness, just that feminine touch to things. You know, I'm not saying that it's the priority in life, but I do think every woman should adapt it more, and just bring it out in herself as well, because it helps you throughout life, too.

I used to work in customer service, in medical supply, and a lot of times you deal with a lot of angry customers, and I decided to try to apply gentle whispering to them. I would literally just slow down the conversation. I would make my point still come across, but I would be very gentle about what I say, I would do it with a smile, and I would slowly move my hands, and things like that. And one hundred percent of the time, always it works. The customer always calms down, and feels much better and more secure. She feels like somebody's actually taking care of them and not just yelling back at them.

I'm interested in what you're saying about femininity, and I wonder how you think about the male whisperers, compared to that, if it's different.

Well, I don't think they're being very gentle in the videos, they're definitely being more calming, and more comforting towards the viewer. A lot of male whisperers mostly use sounds for their videos. A lot of other people, like EphemeralRift for example, he's being very creative with his videos, and he's creating like, tribal videos, Buddha videos, and things like that. It's still comforting. But it's not as gentle as a woman's video. Which is fine. I think, I used to be a little more intimidated by male videos myself, in the beginning at least. And maybe that's why it's still not my favorite. It comforts me, the voice of a man, especially when it's soft spoken or just a very quiet voice. But somehow I feel just guarded, I cannot submerge completely in that. But again, there are people who do.

And, I'm actually now thinking that it takes more of a man to make those kind of videos, and accept the fact that some people will be making fun of you for making those videos. I think it's showing much more, masculinity, is that a word? (laughs). Masculinity, in their case. You know, not to be scared. Because you know the reason that you're doing these videos. And you know how people really feel about them. And that's the only thing that really matters in the end for you.

Do you feel like being Russian, or growing up in Russia, has affected the way that you interact with ASMR, with your viewers, does that influence you in any way particularly?

Um, (laughs) maybe, maybe it does. I've been living in the United States for seven years, and I'm going to be 27 this summer, so I spent most of my life in Russia. I do see a lot of resemblance in myself in my mother, at least as I remember her. So I think, there's definitely something to my character that is more Russian, at least because I grew up there, and became an adult there. That's really hard to explain.

That's ok!

I think a lot of women are really scared to be women. They think that, they're vulnerable more this way, or that, they're not going to be respected if they're a softer woman. Again, you're taught to be a strong woman, to be a strong person, to have your point across and everything. And that's great. But you have to always remember about your feminine side as well.

Um, I don't know (laughs). There's definitely a certain Russian charm in me, I think, that a lot of people pick up. I don't see it, but some people see it, especially with my accent. And the whole picture that they build in their head of a Russian woman in the United States, and obviously it gives them a certain flavor. So I think it shapes their perception of me. I don't feel like it changes anything in me, but I can see some people seeing something extra exotic in me maybe.

Do you think that's part of what makes your videos particularly popular?

No. I think a lot of people really like my videos because I'm being truthful. I've never done it to become popular. I've never asked for subscriptions one time. It's been my thing, so to say. I'm never being pushy. If you like my videos, thank you so much, I will appreciate it, and I will be grateful to you, and I will listen to you, and I'm gonna try and help you more. If you don't like my videos, you're welcome to go, and I'm not even going to be mad or anything. I think a lot of people like that. They know it's not my profession. They know I don't make it for money in the first place. I don't think I'm being fake many times. Even in my role plays, I have to put myself in a certain state before I make a video, I feel like if I'm making something fake, I won't like it and they won't like it for sure.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I'm really very excited about ASMR. I see a lot of potential for it becoming something special in the future. I see that it could be used a lot in spas, maybe in anxiety prevention or treatment. I see it used a lot like in insomnia treatment. I was thinking they could even put it in airplanes, when people travel and they have a fear of flight and they need something to help them fall asleep. You don't have that option right now on the plane. You have all kinds of movies, entertainment, but you don't have anything soothing, which is amazing.

On the one hand I think that media will break us apart, and maybe will ruin it in a way, that intimacy, that little tiny community. But, on the bigger scale, I think it will help millions of people, maybe to discover something new in them. As you go through the whole journey of ASMR – I sound like a teacher, I'm not really preaching or anything – it's just I've been in this for so long, and I've been in contact with so many people. You just start looking into it deeper, on a deeper level.

First I thought that maybe the whole ASMR has to do with your experience in the womb, or as a baby, because you would only hear soft sounds, everybody speaking very gently to you, when you're in the mama's belly. And, you are so comforted in that moment, like there's no better place for you. Throughout life you may be searching for that feeling, and as soon as you get that feeling again, you know, huge comfort and relaxation, it just hits you. Then I thought that, the other side to ASMR has to do with your hyper sensitivity, like a lot of people have overly sensitive taste buds, and they feel extra tastes that we don't know about. We don't argue with them about it. We know that it's there, we appreciate it, and that we’re not so lucky (laughs). I think that maybe it has to do with it, too, that we're just overly sensitive in some kind of a part of our brain, and whenever we hear a certain sound, a certain tone, a certain frequency, it just triggers us in some way and we experience something that other people don't, which makes us a little bit special.

I fell down this rabbit hole after that TAL episode and it makes mid-afternoon naps SO SO easy. If I have nothing to do for a few hours, then I just watch a video, get all head-tingly, and fall asleep.

@packedsuitcase i also did this after TAL. (the rabbit hole. never tried for napping).

@packedsuitcase I'm so excited that you fell down this rabbit hole! I've always had this tingly feeling, and whenever I've tried to describe it to people, UP Board Result

I'm so excited that you fell down this rabbit hole! I've always had this tingly feeling, and whenever I've tried to describe it to people, they look at me like I'm crazy! I used to get it all the time growing up, usually when I was very excited or nervous, but it has died down a lot, and is now more associated with me being ultra calm (and let's face it, when am I ever ultra calm?). I can't wait to check out the videos. Even reading the interview gave me some of that tingly feeling (god, that sounds dirty) because she seems so calm and lovely.

JessicaLovejoy

The TAL segment made me so jealous! I want some rare (and free!) pleasures too!

Listening to the things people were requesting from their favorite YouTubers made me really happy though (Cutting open bonbons and describing the filling? Am I remembering this correctly?) I love learning about the complexities of human beinga. Sometimes we seem really, really dull. Then I remember.

HeyThatsMyBike

@JessicaLovejoy I was also jealous! I want the tinglies!!

OhMarie

@JessicaLovejoy Me too! I went from "whaaatttt is this" to jealous so fast.

glitterary

@OhMarie I know! It sounds awesome, and I don't quite understand, but nothing close to that has ever happened to me. I'm consoling myself with the fact that I can bliss out completely through other things that don't work for everyone (though they're towards the more sexual end of the spectrum). I guess everyone's brain is different, and all brains do different lovely things for their owners sometimes?

noosey

@glitterary I specifically get ASMR but this comment made me soo curious (an possibly jealous)! Are you able to say in what ways you "bliss out" in that way-- are they sensations or certain actions you don't think many other people get/respond to?

glitterary

@noosey Ha--it's actually kink stuff, and I was trying to be delicate for once :) I'm really into rope bondage--the process of being tied (by which I mean involved tying-for-the-sake-of-tying, not just someone whacking a rope cuff on my wrist) just melts me, makes me feel completely zen and glorious all at once. And I'm a masochist, so I can get to a very good place from being hurt in specific ways too; I haven't actually gone into subspace (where your endorphins just take over and nothing hurts anymore) but I've been pretty close and that feels good too. And then, with the right person, there's straight up submitting to them--just letting them take control--which also produces a mental state that feels good emotionally and somehow physically too. It's hard to describe, but it sort of feels like being so at peace that my skin is glowing.

blueblazes

Hey, I liked it before it was cool! You're all a bunch of Johnny-come-latelys!

OK, seriously, a little over a year ago, I was having crippling back/sciatic pain. And I was thinking about going to some kind of alternative medicine kind of place. (Reiki? Acupuncture?) So I watched some youtube videos demonstrating those so I'd know what to expect, and discovered that just watching the videos made me feel so much better. And as I kept looking for more videos spoken in the right tone, I started seeing "ASMR" as a keyword. I had no idea what it was at the time, but I read a couple articles and now am firmly down the rabbit hole ever since.

It was so weird to hear that TAL episode and then read the comments afterward. I was surprised how many people claim that they don't get the tingles, since it is something I've experienced as long as I can remember.

Titania

Oh my goodness. I read the word "makeover" and got the tingles, and now I have a name for it! I've always associated it with a feeling of being focused on or paid close attention to, in a positive way--when a friend or someone is playing with my hair or discussing something intensely/intimately, that "let me tell you a secret" kind of thing. It's not sexual and never happens with male attention; it's always female voices. I've experienced it since I was a kid and we all used to sit around french-braiding each others' hair for ballet class. I have to go read every word of this article very intently now, and I anticipate a LOT of this particular sensation, as I've never read about anyone else experiencing this before.

If I had to sum it up in a sentence for someone who's never experienced it, it's like...the physical manifestation of the feeling of being seen and understood, exactly as you wish to be seen and understood. Not sexual, but extremely emotional, in a brief, fleeting, intense moment.

limenotapple

@Titania You described this perfectly for what I feel! I remember all the times I've tried to explain this feeling and whoever I was talking to was just all "Uh...okay.". I also get this feeling when someone around me is doing something very detail-ly, like making all of one item face the same way or cleaning each letter of a keyboard. One person in my office straightens up the area where we keep office supplies and odds and ends, and she's just so careful about it. It's pretty intense and it's almost a relief to hear others talk about it.

thatgirl

@Titania I just want to hug you right now. Sitting around and braiding hair/doing hand massages before ballet class, or having someone do my makeup...

Also, trailing my own fingers in spiral patterns on my ribcage. But it has to be my fingers, or I get ticklish.

Definitely watch some ASMR videos, there are a bunch that are makeover roleplays that it seems like you might like.

Titania

@thatgirl Aww hugs! I feel like I'm going to watch one when I get home, but ration them out carefully. On the other hand, as addictions go, YouTube videos of nice people doing ordinary things is probably pretty low on the "problematic" scale.

Titania

@limenotapple I experience that less often but totally have and know exactly what you're talking about. I would be really, really curious for someone to do a broad survey of how this correlates with mild-to-actual OCD, anxiety, eating disorders, etc., actually. I feel like it's so strongly correlated with so many female-identified imperatives (to create order, beauty, calm, to nurture/protect) that it might almost be a little brain-goody dealt out to those of us who feel those insecurities and pressures more strongly than others. Maria's theory in her interview about it being related to being in the womb/feeling nurtured and protected by your mother makes a lot of sense to me--Iike it's a sort of reward thing for receiving outside validation of some kind of "rightness" if that makes sense?

sophia_h

@Titania Such a good description of this! I was just trying to tell my husband about it and he knew what I meant when I talked about someone playing with your hair, but he didn't really get the "personal focus" part of it that's so integral for me.

One thing that used to trigger it instantly in me, but hasn't since I was a teenager, was people talking in a foreign language. I'm sad it doesn't happen anymore, it made riding on the bus fun.

cmcm

@limenotapple I am exactly the same way and I never really thought about why it's a thing for me... It's the same kind of 'detaily' stuff that I get the feeling from - I remember distinctly watching this girl in my math class in high school kind of obsessively but delicately touching and readjusting her hair and being mesmerised by it. Same thing with makeovers, anything delicate/detaily/hand-oriented.

I had no idea this was a thing.

Palmetto

When I had a long period of insomnia last year, ASMR videos helped me a lot! My favorite series is this playthrough of Journey. The visuals combined with her voice and the soundtrack are magical, if you can stay awake to see them :)

Sans Souci

@Palmetto Wow, that playthrough is seriously awesome. The music!

P.J. Morse

Ah, ASMR. When you are broke and can't afford a massage, ASMR is the way to go. Besides Maria, another ASMR source is the asmrmassage channel on YouTube. You may not be getting a massage in the physical sense, but ASMR massages my brain!

So, now that ASMR has been featured on "This American Life," how long until someone makes a documentary about it that shows up on Netflix?

YoungLeafedJune

I had a theory about ASMR, which was that it's analogous to the feeling monkeys get when they groom each other (they do it for social bonding, not just pest removal; it releases tiny bursts of endorphins), because it's often associated with grooming or close social attention. I first got it when I was little and my friends and I would do each others' hair or draw on each others' backs. But I always assumed everyone got it and we just didn't have a word for it for some reason. It's weird that not everyone does. Anyway, I got it most recently when I was listening to the audiobook of Sharp Objects, when Camille's mom was doing her whole obsessive nursemaid routine. So that was...unsettling.

noodge

@YoungLeafedJune i think i get this too? especially when I'm doing some sort of talking/play with little kids - coloring or dressing dolls or playing with legos - their chatter makes me calm/happy/relaxed.

RNL
RNL

@YoungLeafedJune I just had this thought this morning!

Brenda_B

@YoungLeafedJune Yeah, I buy that way more than the slightly reactionary "people are out of touch with their gentle, classic femininity and are craving someone to fill that role" that's posited above. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Maria fan, but on this topic we disagree.

RNL
RNL

@Brenda_B I also get a bit of the icks at our darling Maria's femininity theory. But I think it's reasonable to say that gentleness and quiet deliberateness are generally not practiced much in our society. We favour big noises and sounds, brusqueness, brashness, and so on.

I think it only has to do with femininity insofar as it relates to stereotypes. Overall we have trended to a stereotypically "male" demeanor because the patriarchy tells us its better, and as women have been encouraged to participate in the public sphere, we have adopted more "male" presentation. Men are socialized out of gentleness. It's not that gentleness is innate to women or men. But we are socialized away from a demeanour that is associated with women and therefore associated with being inferior.

sydwi

@YoungLeafedJune Oh, that's interesting. That's often when I would experience it, too, as a kid. Now I can get it just by reading about massages and other ultra soothing/hands on things like that.

I love these kinds of videos (Lita the Masseuse on YouTube, omg)and have since before they were all calling themselves AMSR. When I was in constant panic mode last fall over the bug invasion in my apartment, it was the only thing that could get me relaxed enough to sleep. I'd throw the covers over my head and play the longest ones I could find.

Statham

@YoungLeafedJune Oh man. I totally thought everyone got it too.

I usually get it in my yoga class during relaxation when she leads us on a guided meditation. I linked it to all of the work done by my body stretching out and the strengthening exercises done, and then just relaxing and releasing the tension, but apparently there's more to it than I realized given that it has a real term and all. I used to just call them "head fuzzies".

Devushka

I'd like to see research on the link between people who experience ASMR and anxiety, because according my anecdata, it may be one of the few upsides to the disorder. My SO is the opposite of anxious, and he looks at me like I'm crazy whenever I mention the head tinglies.

sydwi

@Devushka Oh, that would be interesting - I fit that, too, but I never considered them linked.

Statham

@Devushka I totally have issues with anxiety. I wouldn't consider them major, but I do get head tinglies.

Shayna

@Devushka I have anxiety, and I use these videos to help calm me down and to get to sleep. I wonder if there's a study...

anachronistique

I love finding out that there are entire areas of the internet I've never heard of, and this is fascinating. Thank you for such a great interview with some really interesting questions, Leanna, and thank you for such detailed answers, Maria!

pinniped

I heard the This American Life episode and thought "oh, that's so cool that a feeling can be triggered by a mere sound." But now that I think about it, this seems to be the same sensation I've always felt when someone plays with my hair, or draws lightly on my back with their finger, or tickles up and down my arms - so to some degree am I part of the club? (It does occasionally happen too if someone whispers RIGHT in my ear, but again, I think that's because of the feeling of their breath on my ear, not the sound itself.)

thatgirl

I love ASMR and soft spoken/whisper videos. I found them back in like... 2008 or 2009? It started by just watching makeup and skincare tutorial videos, and then the whole ASMR thing seemed to pick up speed.

I have to say, though... Maria just doesn't do it for me, which is sad because she seems like a really sweet person. I really like asmrmassage, heatherfeather, and silentcitadel.

blueblazes

@thatgirl Agreed. Maria does nothing for me. Heatherfeather, Pigsbum53 and WhispersUnicorn are the best.

Hiroine Protagonist

@thatgirl HeatherFeather....oh my. She is the best. Perhaps I'll start offering a playing with hair service. I would kill for someone to play with my hair and draw on my arms.

Citizen Christy

@Hiroine Protagonist Let's get together for that hair playing business, OK? Wait, can this be a pinup?

kbn22

I was a frequent Ambien user before getting pregnant, but I've been trying to deal with my insomnia sans drugs while gestating, and ASMR videos have been an absolute godsend. I've always found head massages and hair brushing super-relaxing, so much so that even reading about them makes me sleepy. A few months ago, I decided to look for hair brushing videos on YouTube and discovered asmrmassage (I'm delighted to see that other commenters like her too!). A month later, TAL ran their story, and now this!

These external validators make the whole thing much easier to explain to my husband, who was at first skeptical of what he dubbed my 'hair porn' videos. (For several weeks, I didn't even tell him about the videos, because they seemed so weird and fetish-y. Then I figured he might wake up one night, see the glow of the iPad, and think I was watching actual porn in bed while he slept next to me, which seemed...way more embarrassing. So I went ahead and confessed my hair porn addiction, and now he just laughs at me.)

FWIW, I haven't taken a Unisom in over a month. These videos are the best.

Urwelt

Man, I wish I experienced this. How convenient would it be, to have hundreds of videos to chose from any time you wanted to relax or fall asleep? I tried watching some videos (including one of Maria's, I'm pretty sure), and I just found the whispering sort of irritating. Oh well, I guess I'll have to stick with my head massager for tingles.

kbn22

@Urwelt I'm totally with you on the whispering. That's one of the things I like best about asmrmassage - she speaks softly (with a subtle Southern accent), but doesn't whisper.

phoebecat

I have ASMR and was thrilled a few years back to find people discussing it online. Unfortunately, none of the videos induce it for me. It is always involuntarily, usually involving a stranger being completely focused on me and extremely nice.

RNL
RNL

ASMR videos have been the single most important tool in addressing my insomnia. They're weird, I over-use them, and I don't tell my boyfriend about them. But I am so so grateful to Maria and all of the ASMR community.

Jinxie

@RNL This is relevant to my interests! I've never been a great sleeper, and every once in a while "not sleeping well" becomes full-on insomnia and I am in a bad insomnia period right now. I didn't have a good experience with Ambien, so I'm a little scared of taking Rx sleep aids but if watching these videos helps, well - I will be one happy (and well-rested) lady.

Brenda_B

Starbursts all over my brain. I've had it since I was a kid! I remember trying to talk about it with friends, and marveling how how impossible it was to describe a physical sensation when there's no pre-existing, shared vocabulary for it.

I remember a time pre-ASMR, googling aimlessly "head tingling," "head sparkles relaxtion" and getting message boards discussing scalp pain. It took a few more years for someone else to start the ASMR blogs, and sharing that amazing feeling of, "oh my god, ME TOO!"

Love, love, LOVE the Maria video you chose to lead the article. I'm in a dazed, tingley heaven.

Moodeln

I first heard about this as a thing a few months ago when Slate did an article on it. I was reading it and went ...HEY I RESEMBLE THIS ARTICLE. Like everyone else, I thought everyone had it--I'm triggered in real life by someone talking to me relatively intently or watching me, so I thought it was just a reaction to being self-conscious. It turns out both my sisters have it as well.

And now, knowing it's a thing and having Youtube out there is SO NICE. I use it to fall asleep regularly (actually, that specific video at the top is ASMR GOLD for me; I love Maria's videos), and I've even had a few really shitty days at work where I'll put headphones on and have a video going in the background for a bit, just so I relax a little.

Elsajeni

So, I get a sensation that I think is what you guys are describing -- tingly and kind of electric, in the back of my head and down my spine -- from certain kinds of very gentle touch, only the thing is, I hate it. It's... uncomfortable in the same way being tickled is, I guess? It certainly provokes the same reaction as being tickled, where I might laugh or smile but I also pull away from the touch and reflexively block it. Does anyone else have this experience of it?

distrighema

@Elsajeni yes! I heard the TAL episode on this and have been wondering ever since if you can have the opposite condition. I get really unpleasant, skin-crawly feelings at the back of my head when I hear soft brushy/scrapey sounds. The worst is the sound of other people brushing their teeth, I can't stand it.

Angry Panda

@Elsajeni Yeah, this happens to me too. Particularly my ears. I am super sensitive in general to touch, I don't like it when people sit too close to me, and sometimes even clothes make me twitchy, if they fit in particular ways.
I also get the scalp tingles from listening to music, or random videos on youtube. The whispering voice videos do nothing for me, but some of the sounds (crackling/popping) are super relaxing.

BoozinSusan

@Elsajeni Yeah -- watching the video, I did indeed get the back-of-the-head tinglies, but I didn't find them pleasant exactly...

Ellie

@Elsajeni I don't think so - I think that's the normal feeling everyone gets in response to a physical stimulus. I definitely don't have ASMR, and I know what you are talking about. I don't think anyone likes those scrapey sounds and I think everyone (or almost everyone) has that awful back-of-neck-cringing-spine-tingling response to it. That's a normal thing and I think ASMR is totally different, especially in its capacity of being stimulated by purely mental experiences e.g. having something explained, talking about grooming practices, etc.

I am sensory sensitive which is different (and I, too, am really sensitive to light touch and particularly fitting clothing; I hate it and prefer hard pressure). I don't think ASMR and being sensory sensitive are related; I think sensory sensitive is related to the autism spectrum disorders, although I have absolutely no other mental/psychological characteristics associated with any of those.

Angry Panda

@Ellie Oh, that's interesting. I always thought it was just a two sides of a coin thing. Some things, like videos/music that make me happy trigger the pleasant scalp tingles, while others do the opposite, with spine tingles and goosebumps.
On another note, I had radiation and chemotherapy a few years ago, and an interesting side effect of that was something called Lhermitte's sign, which is basically a mild electric feeling running down your back when you bend your neck. It was disconcerting at first but then it started to feel comforting so I'd bend my neck down all the time to feel it, and one day it disappeared. End of pointless story.

Ellie

@Angry Panda It is so fascinating to hear about other people's totally different experiences of the same world we all live in. I didn't know ASMR existed for a long time (though I had heard of it before the This American Life story). And I could be wrong about everyone getting chills up their spine and goosebumps from nails on a chalkboard type sounds, but so many people mention it that I think it must be almost totally universal.
It would be really interesting if the two phenomena, which as you describe do deem to be opposites of one another, were related to the same area of the brain. Unfortunately I think people are less inclined to pay for studies of these things that don't really cause problems.

Your Lhermitte's sign thing sounds interesting, though I am sorry that you had to go through chemotherapy and radiation. I have a few weird physical things I have never been able to satisfactorily describe but have always thought everyone else must experience in the same way:
1) That thing where you touch one very specific spot and you can feel it tingling in a different spot somewhere else totally random on your body - often occurs when you have a bug bite and scratch it, and feel it also somewhere else, or when you accidentally pull on or scratch just one hair follicle and feel it on a different equally precise spot.
2) That thing where you can make it hum inside your ears & temples by flexing inside your head. I have no idea how to express it better than that, and no clue what it is, maybe just exactly that.

noctifer

@Elsajeni #1 has to do with the way your nerve anatomy is organized and how sensory nerves connect to specific points on the spinal cord. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dermatome_%28anatomy%29
And I know exactly what you mean by #2 but it's more of a squeak than a hum for me. Don't know the physiology of that one.

sophia_h

@Angry Panda interesting, that was one of my early MS symptoms and I didn't know it was associated with other conditions too. Sadly it's just a zap for me, not anything fun.

Angry Panda

@sophia_h Mine was just a zap, too, it was just the weirdest and least painful side effect of treatment, so it ended up being fun for me. I am sorry to hear that you're dealing with MS.
@Ellie Thank you, it wasn't fun but I survived. And yeah, I am not sure if what I have is ASMR exactly. I don't get the tingles often enough to qualify, maybe, and the rest of it is pure speculation on my part. The chalkboard thing happens more often for sure, and I've met many people who have that.
The humming thing sounds cool. It's amazing what our bodies can do, right?

sophia_h

@Angry Panda eh, it is not as scary as cancer! Sorry your side effects were bad enough that a zap was comforting; I at first just figured it was my horrible computer posture and blamed myself.

Ellie

@noctifer For some reason I JUST SAW this reply, and I don't know if you get reply notifications or will ever see this, but thank you so much for explaining #1. I have literally never been able to make anyone else understand what I mean, even my doctor. And I'm so glad you know what I mean by #2.

DullHypothesis

I put makeup tutorials on in the background at work when I'm feeling particularly stressed, or if I have a lot to do. This makes much more sense to me now.

Very interesting! The video did nothing for me, but as a person who experiences head tingles, it's nice to have something close to a vocabulary for this.

emmycantbemeeko

Loved this interview! Maria has been one of my favorite ASMR video makers for a while, it was interesting to read about her process. I am many successful-naps-while-anxious in her debt.

MadKey

I had a feeling I would get the tingles when I heard about ASMR on This American Life — and lo and behold, so tingly! kind of weird, very lovely. She could honestly be saying anything.

Tape Recorder

ASMR recordings are the only way I can get through long airplane flights. I'm really partial to the Youtube user yanghaiying, who posts videos of drinking different teas and chatting like a close friend.

Statham

I'm super-excited that these videos exist because I get head tinglies, and I get them on rare occasions. (Yoga class mostly, or when my hair is being brushed by someone else.) It's also nice to know there's a term for it.

And is it terribly awful to feel special now that I know I get them and some other people can't?

angelinha

I have never gotten "head tingles" to my knowledge, and am more upset than I'd like to admit about it. It sounds like this would be really nice.

Nanuary

I only learned this was a "thing" from the This American Life episode, but I've had it for a long time. For me, it's not a "tingle," but rather a warm trance that comes over me when I get the ASMR hook. The weird thing is that I don't really love getting massages, haircuts, check-ups, etc. These things are okay, but I feel like a lot of my energy is expended when I have to experience a stanger's close proximity for that length of time.
I wonder if, for me, ASMR is partially a safe way to experience these things. I have more anxiety than the average person, and from a very young age I've always had difficulty trusting people I don't know well. In my case, ASMR sort of reminds me of that journalist who used violent sexual role-play to deal with her PTSD. However, I also get major ASMR from watching bad acting, so maybe not, ha.

lucy snowe

Is this different from the- well, a few things I'm thinking of:
1. watching someone sing a song perfectly, really nailing it, makes my whole back of the head and spine shudder with tingles, running up and down-- sometimes even days later, remembering the performance (but I think this is just a performance giving me goosebumps? is that different?)
2. Learning something new or exciting that makes my head feel stretched out and actually gives me the feeling that my hair is standing on end
3. a fear response- spooky story, spooky noise- a feeling I just thought was the human equivalent of my hackles being raised
4. that gorgeous sexy feeling of breath on ears and the side and base of my neck

Or is this something different?

sophia_h

@lucy snowe It's similar, but there's an extra, kind of drugged-pleasure element to it for me, like when you pet a cat in just the right place and they can't move. It's a sort of euphoria, and as Titania said above, you also feel very personally seen and paid attention to, with a sense of total well-being. Or at least that's my experience with this as being slightly different from your examples.

lucy snowe

@sophia_h Aah! I think that must be like how I feel when someone washes my hair at the salon?

sophia_h

@lucy snowe Yep, most people seem to experience it first in relation to haircuts, people playing with or braiding their hair, etc. I think it's because it's right at the nape of your neck when you get the tingles.

lucy snowe

@sophia_h It's got to be connected to the vampire zone, though, don't you think? I mean, ears, side of the neck, base, back of the neck,whispers and nibbles there make me cross-eyed. I get that this isn't specifically sexual, but nerves are nerves, aren't they?

katzenklavier

@lucy snowe I totally get the first one! I don't know if it's the same as ASMR because it seems to be connected to songs that are morally right or make me proud of humanity, like protest songs or amazing singers who are also amazing peopl. Is that really bizarre? The first time I remember it happening was in kindergarden when we learned a song about Rosa Parks...

lucy snowe

@katzenklavier Oh, yes, I know what you mean. ani di franco has inspired them for me, often. And many different singers have inspired them for me with "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda." Because protest songs don't get much more poignant than that.

But sometimes it's just really getting the song right, the emotions right-- Jennifer Hudson gave them to me in "Dreamgirls." And Nina Simone's "Pirate Jenny"-- ah. Too many to list, really. :D

katzenklavier

@lucy snowe Aaaah you understand me! I totally get it for The Pogues' version of "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda." Also the part in "Masters of War" where Bob Dylan sings "I hope that you die." Check out Odetta singing "Midnight Special," too...

emmycantbemeeko

@lucy snowe

It's different. The first feeling you describe is often called "frisson" by people who are interested in these things. I get both frisson and ASMR, and they strike in similar areas but are very different. ASMR is much more mellow, more of a pleasure in profound relaxation, while frisson is very agitating, albeit in a good way.

lucy snowe

@katzenklavier I already have! :D

lucy snowe

@emmycantbemeeko Thanks for helping refine the distinction for me! I've experienced both, but I think I'm more prone to frissons. I do love getting a shampoo, though! :)

kristenpdx

I love Maria! I learned about ASMR a couple months ago, and recognized the description immediately. When I was a kid, my pediatrician was a small soft-spoken woman whose voice I couldn't get enough of. I wonder if the pleasure had anything to do with the fact that she was providing me with care. Anyway, those were the first tingles I remember getting. Since then I've only gotten them from hair-brushing or hair-washing, and occasionally from women's voices. It's so neat that now, with YouTube, I can experience the tingles anytime! They help me get to sleep.

Miss Maszkerádi

I've never experienced this, and I've tried listening to Maria's and other videos....am I just not wired right for it, or can it be "learned"? Because it sounds awesome.

emmycantbemeeko

@Miss Maszkerádi

Nobody knows exactly, since it hasn't been studied, but anecdotally many people describe getting their first tingles later in life and some people who've long been triggered by one thing (not all triggers work for all ASMR-receptive people) can suddenly find themselves triggered by something new that never did before. So it's possible!

Shayna

ASMR is also called Attention-Induced Euphoria, which happens when someone scrutinizes, pays attention, or otherwise cares for you (hence a lot of the roleplays involving make-overs).

mrkap

ASMR has basically changed my life. They say there are no nerve endings inside the brain, and the tingles are felt in the surrounding muscle and bones. There are excellent ASMR artists on youtube and ASMR Studio

Breannasmommy

What always bothers me in asmr is the fact that it is a medical condition or medically explained feature some of us happen to have or experience yet how can we be taken seriously outside of the asmr community with ppl only focusing on certain aspects and not having the full knowledge to explain what the response to stimuli entails??? Too many ppl view it as a fetish and it doesn't help that so many ppl who even have asmr only hilight one or two features and over do them to the point they embarrass some of us in the community even more by exploiting certain features to the outside onlooker who doesn't have a clue what asmr is thereby making us all as a whole look strange. I'm sick S I C K of hearing asmr Bejng associated with Whispering. Calling asmr video makers WHISPERERS is ridiculous. Asmr doesn't stand for autonomous sensory meridian response to whispering and I'm really getting sick of all the whisper driven fetish like ppl making asmr only associated with some weirdo whispering into a camera for ppls pleasure or tingles as u all keep saying. U spent a lot of time discussing your view on asmr but once Again just another misleading person having ppl believe it's simply some liking of whispering ppl who may occasionally tap things. Simply put asmr is a condition in which a persons brain has certain sensory receptors that are more strongly emphasized or hightened at certain stimuli which is different for each person and it isn't a fetish of something to be ashamed of and all the weird videos don't help us much. I have researched extensively and work in the medical field and propose that a lot of people who have this condition may share a common thread where their response to stimuli is so generally hightened or focused in certain tones and volume levels and pitches in voice or certain actions such as touch or mannerisms one may make when doing something such as flipping pages or using hand movements etc or breathing patterns and speech patterns and cadences due to the possibility that asmr is hightened or more noticed and affected in these individuals who perhaps may have hardly ever had love or care in the same way as the avg person. Now this research is still in progress but so far my studies and controls have shown more possibility that individuals who have had troubled childhoods or isolation or who's personality was that of a more quiet observant atmosphere than the avg person who was held more or in a better upbringing where affection touch and positive speaking were more common place. A lot of my research subjects have mentioned they felt asmr not from their family members but rather would cringe at the thought of family members being able to provoke their response to asmr yet it would be a teacher or another child who was soft spoken who drew them in to notice this feeling of stimuli and warm fuzzy feeling and it has been found that many if my case studies have shared a common thread of ppl who were mostly independent or felt alone or isolated who were more inward in paying attention to the stimuli around them and it is noted that many asmr patients or subjects in my studies felt an overwhelming yearning for a loving touch of affection which is may I add in no way a freaky sort of touch but simply an affectionate touch similar to that of having ones hair braided by Someone who shows care and detail who is gentle thereby allowing the person to relax and feel stimuli not normally felt in their lives which they then remember and feel hightened sensations bc let's face it. Someone who is held all the time as a baby never knows what it's like to be someone who is never held or perhaps someone who may have bn abused who craves the affection and love that an agh person may take for granted and I've felt often that asmr patients are much more emotional and hightened to sensory response bc it is something that isn't experienced all the time therefore the brain picks up on it more .. While I hate to equate asmr in any way to a drug or an addict to drugs I will point out that when someone who may perhaps take a drug feels high the first time it is bc their receptors in the brain which control sensations or emotions or happiness are hightened to the point of complete stimulation enjoyment whichever word u may want to use and while I do not know personally what that is like nor do I like equating any of that to this the sensation of someone who takes a drug that compromises their brains chemistry often seems to try to seek out that same feeling all over again therefore having ability to become desensitized by same amount and therefore may risk addiction chasing a high bc the brains level of being exposed to that substance becomes desensitized or doesn't feel the same toward it as it dd the first few times so the person then has to up the amount in order to achieve the same lift they once had initially from brain never feeling the effects before use that it had. This is why many ppl who have faced hardship or abuse or loneliness or what have u are more susceptible to wanna escape n feel better n not face the hardship etc but before getting side tracked here on a tangent I'm clearly stating that a person with asmr is hightened to stimuli much more in my studies at least than someone who had proper growth or affection or normality overall in their lives early on. Bc I'm having trouble typing from my phone and this site keeps trying to click out of my actual response field I apologize if I'm in anyway not writing more clearly to emphasize my point however that bejg said many of my patients come from the same background where they either lacked emotional stability or normality or affection so therefore their brains seem to have picked up on this response to stimuli and asmr is very much a response involving nerves autonomic nervous system in whole as well as neurons and receptors responsible for sense of touch and visual stimulation that goes along with the other senses which may involve both visual cortex auditory parts of the brain as well as nervous system. If anyone would like to submit a survey and if possible become part of my testing you may reply to me if u wish and become part of testing involving MRI mra and other tests involving nerve conduction and deep brain stimulation provided you meet certain criteria. My studies have been ongoing well before the YouTube or internet craze of asmr awareness and may provide ways to further understand the cause for the response and to help recognize asmr as a valid condition in the field of medicine . I'm currently working with highly accredited individuals in the study of neuropsychology neurology and deing with the autonomic nervous system as well as social case studies in both psychology and psychiatry and having asmr myself has prompted me to uncover more about this condition as it pertains to myself and people of all ages backgrounds and nationalities. It bothers me very much to see that the focus of medical nature is not hardly even understood by either people who have asmr or people outside the community both medically and in general and to see so much emphasis on what people have turned asmr into as it seems to be seen and viewed as a fetish really bother me. All of the people who keep promoting it this way at frigate me. Wouldn't we all want to be taken seriously and understood so that we don't have to hide in internet chats or on YouTube but can openly say we have asmr and be understood ? Well all of these ppl calling asmr video makers whisperers or artists only give say to it being treated as some sort of new phase or fad and negate the actual medical condition that it is. I've worked tirelessly trying to both educate and make known the fact that asmr is a condition and so many ppl are ruining the actual facts and don t even have a clue why they're posting vids or for what purpose except to have subscribers or viewers. If you can't take it seriously and explain so that outsiders will know as well as ppl who have asmr anything truthful or valid then don't post anything about it. Some ppl may be affected by a soft spoken whisper or speaking volume and some may see certain people exhibit asmr qualities when they make certain movements such as tapping or what have you but not everyone has the ability to trigger asmr and not everyone can make a video and fake asmr as I've seen. So many try to do this and they are doing it just to be liked or viewed and for attention and it's like they're sitting there going ok now I'm gunna tap something check. Now I'll whisper. Check. Now I'll chew gum check! Noooo ya can't just try to make crap and think it's asmr bc you're doing it. Asmr is either felt naturally or it isn't. The same ability to get a good response to asmr also involves the opposite ability to be negatively affected by the same acts when done by someone who doesn't have asmr quality naturally and the observer can become extremely stressed by the horrific effect made by someone who tries to asmr them but doesn't at all have natural asmr ability so I wish ppl would stop being so fake and so ignorant about it and be more natural. A small few ppl can ignite my asmr yet even more can sit there and Try to smack and chew gum and whisper or whatever and I'll want to rip my ears off as they chew their cud like a cow processing it's stomachs contents if Ya know what I mean. Get a clue. It isn't ok when some of these vid makers start out with the event dreaded whispered hi guys. Smack swallow spit and I hear it travel down their throat amplified to hell and back yuck. Just the thought of it makes my skin crawl. I want ppl to know why they have asmr and I want ppl who make these vids to stop being fake and misinformed. Quit treating it like a fetish or fad to become popular among you tube vids and have respect to the condition and community of ppl who want to be associated medically and not as a group of weirdos. We aren't whispers and it isn't a whisper condition for crying out loud.

What always bothers me in asmr is the fact that it is a medical condition or medically explained feature some of us happen to have or experience yet how can we be taken seriously outside of the asmr community with ppl only focusing on certain aspects and not having the full knowledge to explain what the response to stimuli entails??? Too many ppl view it as a fetish and it doesn't help that so many ppl who even have asmr only hilight one or two features and over do them to the point they embarrass some of us in the community even more by exploiting certain features to the outside onlooker who doesn't have a clue what asmr is thereby making us all as a whole look strange. I'm sick S I C K of hearing asmr Bejng associated with Whispering. Calling asmr video makers WHISPERERS is ridiculous. Asmr doesn't stand for autonomous sensory meridian response to whispering and I'm really getting sick of all the whisper driven fetish like ppl making asmr only associated with some weirdo whispering into a camera for ppls pleasure or tingles as u all keep saying. U spent a lot of time discussing your view on asmr but once Again just another misleading person having ppl believe it's simply some liking of whispering ppl who may occasionally tap things. Simply put asmr is a condition in which a persons brain has certain sensory receptors that are more strongly emphasized or hightened at certain stimuli which is different for each person and it isn't a fetish of something to be ashamed of and all the weird videos don't help us much. I have researched extensively and work in the medical field and propose that a lot of people who have this condition may share a common thread where their response to stimuli is so generally hightened or focused in certain tones and volume levels and pitches in voice or certain actions such as touch or mannerisms one may make when doing something such as flipping pages or using hand movements etc or breathing patterns and speech patterns and cadences due to the possibility that asmr is hightened or more noticed and affected in these individuals who perhaps may have hardly ever had love or care in the same way as the avg person. Now this research is still in progress but so far my studies and controls have shown more possibility that individuals who have had troubled childhoods or isolation or who's personality was that of a more quiet observant atmosphere than the avg person who was held more or in a better upbringing where affection touch and positive speaking were more common place. A lot of my research subjects have mentioned they felt asmr not from their family members but rather would cringe at the thought of family members being able to provoke their response to asmr yet it would be a teacher or another child who was soft spoken who drew them in to notice this feeling of stimuli and warm fuzzy feeling and it has been found that many if my case studies have shared a common thread of ppl who were mostly independent or felt alone or isolated who were more inward in paying attention to the stimuli around them and it is noted that many asmr patients or subjects in my studies felt an overwhelming yearning for a loving touch of affection which is may I add in no way a freaky sort of touch but simply an affectionate touch similar to that of having ones hair braided by Someone who shows care and detail who is gentle thereby allowing the person to relax and feel stimuli not normally felt in their lives which they then remember and feel hightened sensations bc let's face it. Someone who is held all the time as a baby never knows what it's like to be someone who is never held or perhaps someone who may have bn abused who craves the affection and love that an agh person may take for granted and I've felt often that asmr patients are much more emotional and hightened to sensory response bc it is something that isn't experienced all the time therefore the brain picks up on it more .. While I hate to equate asmr in any way to a drug or an addict to drugs I will point out that when someone who may perhaps take a drug feels high the first time it is bc their receptors in the brain which control sensations or emotions or happiness are hightened to the point of complete stimulation enjoyment whichever word u may want to use and while I do not know personally what that is like nor do I like equating any of that to this the sensation of someone who takes a drug that compromises their brains chemistry often seems to try to seek out that same feeling all over again therefore having ability to become desensitized by same amount and therefore may risk addiction chasing a high bc the brains level of being exposed to that substance becomes desensitized or doesn't feel the same toward it as it dd the first few times so the person then has to up the amount in order to achieve the same lift they once had initially from brain never feeling the effects before use that it had. This is why many ppl who have faced hardship or abuse or loneliness or what have u are more susceptible to wanna escape n feel better n not face the hardship etc but before getting side tracked here on a tangent I'm clearly stating that a person with asmr is hightened to stimuli much more in my studies at least than someone who had proper growth or affection or normality overall in their lives early on. Bc I'm having trouble typing from my phone and this site keeps trying to click out of my actual response field I apologize if I'm in anyway not writing more clearly to emphasize my point however that bejg said many of my patients come from the same background where they either lacked emotional stability or normality or affection so therefore their brains seem to have picked up on this response to stimuli and asmr is very much a response involving nerves autonomic nervous system in whole as well as neurons and receptors responsible for sense of touch and visual stimulation that goes along with the other senses which may involve both visual cortex auditory parts of the brain as well as nervous system. If anyone would like to submit a survey and if possible become part of my testing you may reply to me if u wish and become part of testing involving MRI mra and other tests involving nerve conduction and deep brain stimulation provided you meet certain criteria. My studies have been ongoing well before the YouTube or internet craze of asmr awareness and may provide ways to further understand the cause for the response and to help recognize asmr as a valid condition in the field of medicine . I'm currently working with highly accredited individuals in the study of neuropsychology neurology and deing with the autonomic nervous system as well as social case studies in both psychology and psychiatry and having asmr myself has prompted me to uncover more about this condition as it pertains to myself and people of all ages backgrounds and nationalities. It bothers me very much to see that the focus of medical nature is not hardly even understood by either people who have asmr or people outside the community both medically and in general and to see so much emphasis on what people have turned asmr into as it seems to be seen and viewed as a fetish really bother me. All of the people who keep promoting it this way at frigate me. Wouldn't we all want to be taken seriously and understood so that we don't have to hide in internet chats or on YouTube but can openly say we have asmr and be understood ? Well all of these ppl calling asmr video makers whisperers or artists only give say to it being treated as some sort of new phase or fad and negate the actual medical condition that it is. I've worked tirelessly trying to both educate and make known the fact that asmr is a condition and so many ppl are ruining the actual facts and don t even have a clue why they're posting vids or for what purpose except to have subscribers or viewers. If you can't take it seriously and explain so that outsiders will know as well as ppl who have asmr anything truthful or valid then don't post anything about it. Some ppl may be affected by a soft spoken whisper or speaking volume and some may see certain people exhibit asmr qualities when they make certain movements such as tapping or what have you but not everyone has the ability to trigger asmr and not everyone can make a video and fake asmr as I've seen. So many try to do this and they are doing it just to be liked or viewed and for attention and it's like they're sitting there going ok now I'm gunna tap something check. Now I'll whisper. Check. Now I'll chew gum check! Noooo ya can't just try to make crap and think it's asmr bc you're doing it. Asmr is either felt naturally or it isn't.

Anyone wishing to comment please be respectful and do not be attacking however I welcome anyone to write whether they agree or not but just as I will respect you please do the same and whether it's agreed on or not please no filthy language or insults!

ThatsIt

Hello @Breannasmommy, I wish you had been able to write your comments on a PC instead of your phone because I think you bring up some very interesting perspectives that I've wondered about also. However, your presentation here may make it difficult for others to give your comments the thorough reading I think they deserve.

Let me first say that I'm no expert on ASMR, though I do experience it. Having only very recently discovered a term existed for the sensation, a very thrilling discovery BTW, I'm trying now to better understand it, its manifestations, and its origins. I've immersed myself in YouTube and Google to try to give myself a crash course.

Please permit me to ask you to expand on some of your thoughts, many of which I think I am in agreement with:

The main theme of your essay seems to be your disgust over ASMR not being taken seriously as a medical condition and the community being a primary cause of that. Has ASMR been scientifically proven yet? I hope so, but I haven't come across anything that black and white yet. Please send a link if you know of one because that would certainly add some legitimacy to the discussion.

You mention that the problem is the community only focuses on a limited set of examples of both the stimuli, e.g. whispering, AND the responses to them, e.g. scalp tingles. Now this really grabbed me because in my research so far, admittedly far less extensive than those in the know for years, I do see what you're driving at. Maybe because I am relatively new to the scene, I can comfortably say your statements really do seem to accurately harpoon the appearance presented by community itself. Indeed, it seems ASMR is mainly about whisperers, and having watched many, many ASMR videos now it didn't take me long to see the repetition and formulaic nature of so many of them and in some cases the very open mission to acquire fans, views, donations, etc. I nearly fell out of my seat with laughter when you nailed the overly used "hi guys" intro (and "hi everyone") followed by the check-list of extended tapping, gum chewing, crinkling, t popping, etc. It does feel like so many ASMR videos are performed by rote. Yes, I'm sure you can easily spot the fakers and the disingenuous drug-pushers out there, but at this point, so early in the science of ASMR, I suppose we shouldn't be surprised by them. People have a pleasurable sensation that is triggered very specifically. When they stumble on a means to summon that response after it being random for so long, artists know folks will kiss a lot of cud-chewing cows to find that right prince that will work for them.

To your point, what could be added to better reflect the true spectrum of stimuli? Are there video genres you would like to see that you haven't yet? I think any new suggestions in that regard could only provide inspiration to the artists out there who really do seem to care and put an incredible amount of effort into their work.

As for the limited range of responses routinely discussed, e.g. tingles, I would love hear more from you on that. I believe I experience ASMR because the things that have triggered me over the years appear to be classic, but my response is not completely like most I've read. What are other ASMR responses that you are aware of beyond the usual head tingles that travel down the neck and spine?

On the origins of ASMR, I wonder the same thing!: Is there a connection between an insufficient amount of attention given (the ideal amount being different for each individual), isolation, or abuse in early childhood and ASMR? Personally, I have often felt it as reflexive reaction to finally getting exactly what the soul has been starved for. Not quite sure how that coincides with stimuli like crinkling, but I do agree there is something there very much worth investigating. I was not abused or unloved at all by my parents, but perhaps I didn't experience early on enough of what I personally needed without even being aware of what that might be, and like a Geiger counter, when I experience anything like it now, whether I consciously recognize it for what it is or not, something inside me does and it lights up in an odd but distinct way.

And when it really does, it IS like a drug you want to chase, as you described. From what I've been reading, ASMR videos, like drugs, can become ineffective over time and one must seek different ones to get the same effect. Thank goodness for those good artists that are prolific!

Interesting related note: I believe I read one of the leading artists was raised by foster parents. I was adopted at 6 months by two loving (working) parents. I wonder what proportion of people who experience ASMR have similar backgrounds.

You express distress over ASMR being viewed by others as a fetish. Here's m-w's definition of a fetish:

1: belief in magical fetishes
2: extravagant irrational devotion
3: the pathological displacement of erotic interest and satisfaction to a fetish

ASMR isn't magical. I don't think most who experience it behave irrationally, but perhaps that's subjective. Do many with ASMR wait for, hunt for, and binge on examples that move them equally as much as those with harmless but seemingly odd fetishes? To the outsider looking in, is there any difference in behavior? It must look like yet another group chasing their own odd drug, regardless of what organ is stimulated. I'm not sure yet that one who experiences ASMR can be justifiably offended by the term. Is the point you're trying to make that because there is or soon will be concrete evidence that ASMR is a medical condition, that it shouldn't be viewed as a fetish? Are you also proposing there may be some recommended treatment for it? Something more satisfying and productive than watching YouTube videos, e.g. a course of therapy? I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts on this.

Finally let me say, I, for one, very much appreciated your post and am extremely interested in your views on ASMR, the artists, how it is portrayed in the media, your own personal experiences, and what direction you as a purist would like to see the community go in. I would love to hear more about the scientific studies you are conducting as well as what your goals are with them. Please post where we can read about your progress and continue a meaningful, informative dialogue.

Best to you and Breanna
