The ASMR Club

Post by OrehCursor » 29 May 2015, 16:02

For those of you that know what ASMR is- Great!
For those of you that don't- A moment of your time please. (Could also skip to the TL;DR)

You are probably asking yourself: "What the heck is ASMR?"
ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response. Still don't get it? Well here is a more textbook explanation.
Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a physical sensation characterized by a pleasurable tingling that typically begins in the head and scalp, and often moves down the spine and through the limbs.

Perhaps the most prominent triggers are in the form of physical, visual, and auditory stimulation.
Common triggers include:
    Slow speech patterns, accents, soft-speaking voices and whispers.
    Lip sounds/smacking/eating
    Clicking sounds, brushing sounds, white noise, etc.
    Painting/drawing
    Instructional videos
    Watching other people performing simple tasks
    Getting close, personal attention from someone (eye-exam, make-over, etc.)
    Haircuts, people playing with your hair
    Bob Ross

Now not everyone experience this sensation. In fact, many feel nothing from it. But the lucky few that do have a quick and easy way to get relax and comfortable. Stressed? ASMR. Restless? ASMR. Just wanna watch something relaxing? ASMR.

Luckily a plethora of people have taken to extremely sensitive microphones to make ASMR videos on YouTube.

A very commonly used microphone for ASMR. Note the actual ears for a more realistic sound input and output.


ASMR videos generally consist of people talking in very hush tones or in whispers (though some involve inaudible whipsers or no talking what so ever) accompanied by noises that are known to trigger sensations. Formats include just simply making sound effects for the viewers or doing actual roleplays to simulate relaxing scenarios such as spas or vacations. (Or something bold like resting from an adventure). Every once in a while you may find a video that guides you through meditation.
Trigger sensations include
    Ear scratching
    tongue clicking
    crinkling sounds
    ear to ear sounds
    hair brushing
    binaural beats
    etc

TL;DR version

ASMR is a relaxing sensation some people are lucky to have that is triggered from specific stimulation. Many people on YouTube actually make videos for people that experience ASMR.

So are you familiar with ASMR and watch vids for it? Share your experiences and your favorite channels/videos.

Are you not familiar with ASMR? Are you curious to see if you have it? Well let me share my top two female and top two male artists that I think are the best at ASMR. Also if you find these videos immediately awkward (As they do involve people getting up close to you) you probably don't have ASMR.

Top two females:
Heather Feather ASMR:


ASMRrequests:


Top two males:
Ephemeral Rift: Now a bit of a warning with this guy. He is kinda on the weirder side of things, especially with some of his videos((Some are actually freaky- but youll know before you accidently stumble into them)). Interestingly enough though, he actually has a plot going on with his work and they still do a good job at triggers. Also he may or may not be a Cthulu worshiper. o_o; He claims he is agnostic but I dunno.


MassageASMR:


Now just a few things to bare in mind when watching ASMR:
1) Wear headphones (preferably over ear ones, but in-ears work just fine)
2) Get comfortable
3) Be wary about watching a lot of ASMR. If you continuously listen to them, you may start building an adaption to the stimulations and the sensations you feel may not be as strong as they used to be, till you build up an immunity. If that happens, don't worry. Take a break from watching ASMR videos, and when you come back the sensations should be just as strong as they used to be.

Hope you enjoy!

P.S. As a closing note, I should add that I find ASMR videos also very good for studying as they help me keep focus.
The winner is the most adaptive one.

The sound of nails tapping against objects & scratching surfaces; always amazing.♥~
Others may find it annoying, but to me, it's soothing.

Hey, I just saw this post and thought maybe I could show you some of my videos. I just started making ASMR videos a few weeks ago, so I would really like to hear what you think and where I could improve.
