ASMR is a relaxing tingly feeling caused by good sounds. A good example of this would be a comforting whisper from someone who loves you. Some of y’all have never experienced that so here’s a better example: Have you ever gotten the chills while listening to some *great* music? Well that was a frisson. (If not, that’s really sad, so tragic.) A frisson is a thrilling feeling, literally goosebumps.
ASMR has always existed even when it wasn’t acknowledged explicitly. Its just perfect, the thought of nice people whispering nice things in your ear? It doesn't have to be romantic and it helps when you feel hopeless. I do be falling asleep. I also find the visuals appealing since they can be delicious foods, colorful lights, lava lamps, and have elements of roleplay. As a kid I’ve always liked roleplay games and it’s funny seeing all those titles. Like “Meg Griffon does your Makeup” or “Alien Inspection ASMR”.
I think the reason why most people don’t like ASMR is because they can’t take it seriously and aren’t into emerging themselves into these kinds of roleplays. They can't remove the barrier you know? I can understand why someone wouldn’t like the idea of a stranger talking in a low voice and making claims of care. I cannot deny, it can be cringe sometimes. Plus the sounds used in ASMR can be things that most of the population are annoyed by, like chewing, tapping, crinkling, and scratching. It is supposed to be gentle in the videos though.
This dude uses ASMR ideas that are "fresh and unique" like orbees and other objects. I appreciate the editing he puts into his videos, like when he puts eyes on the mics. Gives them a sense of personality heheehe.
This man seems really nice and I trust him. He uploads very frequently and has a nice soothing voice. He also takes care of his mother and featured her in a hair-washing video which was one of my favorite videos from him. I could fall asleep to any of his videos honestly.
Ok yes he's a big meme, but his videos are high quality! Very good brain melting sounds and a sense of care in his voice. Yes he is the one who made the Harambe Illuminati video but don't worry it's good I swear. Put your fate in his hands!
Yes..this meme video, it is so good. Most of her videos are on the funky side but she's good at what she does. She talks about and roleplays a lot of my interests, history and mythology. Once in a while she'll pretend to stab or suffocate you lolol.
