I’m not a neurologist or a scientist, but I’ve spent more than 40 years experiencing and contemplating ASMR and I have some theories that I think genuinely explain what ASMR really is and why it happens. I believe ASMR has a purpose and played an important role in our species’ evolution and survival. And while I didn’t name it ASMR, I’m partly responsible for why we call it that today. I’ll explain that in a bit.

Once it’s triggered, ASMR creates a very pleasurable, tingly feeling that glides across the scalp in friendly waves and can even seem as though it’s being felt deep under the scalp. The feeling can sometimes travel down the neck, shoulders and back. b games zombie This feeling varies in intensity and promotes a euphoric sense of calm, relaxation and well being. The person experiencing ASMR is usually filled with a strong desire to simply remain still and enjoy the sensation until it fades (usually in 2 to 10 minutes, given the circumstances and the person). As someone who has battled an opioid addiction, I can tell you that strength and intensity of ASMR is easily comparable to the strength of a drug like euphoria. The ASMR feeling does not hinder a person’s judgement by making them feel high or drunk. The subject remains clear headed and aware (though usually very relaxed).

No. Not in the least. ASMR is often mistaken by people without it, as a kink or fetish. This is in no way true. The pleasurable feelings ASMR brings do not induce sexual feelings or urges. " But Tarol, " I hear you saying, " I know people online who say they DO find it sexual ". Yes. And there are people with a kink for combining food with sexual arousal, but this does not mean that the pleasure we get from yummy foods is sexual in nature. Some people are turned on by bondage, yet this doesn’t make ropes innately sexual. Lots of people enjoy incorporating otherwise nonsexual aspects of the world around them into an erotic experience. The pleasure experienced by ASMR is no more sexual that the pleasure experienced from eating our favourite foods.

I hear this a lot. It’s an understandable reaction to something that is often so poorly and vaguely explained. " Oh it’s a good feeling? Hey, I’ve felt good feelings before! Maybe I have it too ". Let me sum this up. If, after hearing/reading about ASMR, you’re saying " I think I have that ", then you don’t. If you’re not completely sure if you have ASMR, then you don’t have it. The ASMR sensation is so hard to explain, because it’s so different than almost any other feeling. We try to compare it to other sensations like " tingly goosebumps " etc, but this hardly covers the actual feeling. ASMR is unique and impossible to miss, when it happens. m gasbuddy app It’s like if I told you that massive dinosaurs were stampeding through my living room every morning and your response is " Hmmmm. Now that you mention it, I think dinosaurs might be stampeding through my living room too ". If you actually have dinosaurs charging through your living room, you absolutely know it. If you have to think about whether or not dinosaurs charge through your home, it’s definitely not happening to you.

Triggers are the events or experiences that can create the ASMR sensation. These triggers can vary a bit from person to person, but they all follow specific rules that give away the whole purpose of ASMR. Common triggers include whispering, chewing, gentle touching or close up focus on the ASMR subject (like a doctor shining a light in your ear or quietly listening to your heartbeat with a stethoscope). When looking at the pleasure that the ASMR subject feels and the apparent intimacy of some of these triggers, it’s easy to see why non-ASMR folks might think that it’s a sexual thing. What’s worse, it’s very common to see someone with an actual sexual kink, swearing up and down that " It’s not sexual! Really ". So an ASMR subject promising that it’s not sexual, can leave their friend rolling their eyes and thinking " Oh yeah, this stuff is TOTALLY sexual "

I was born in 1973. It was in the late 70s that I started to experience the ASMR ‘tingles’, usually at school. I had no idea what was triggering it, I just knew that it was this wonderful feeling that happened sometimes and I didn’t consider the reason or cause. Kids are very good at just accepting the world for what it is. To make my point, here are some things that I actually believed as a small child…

– I had no idea that elevators were meant to go up and down, I thought they always stayed still. I calmly and thoroughly believed that when the elevator doors closed with me and my Mom inside, the world outside the elevator was morphed into something different. I remember standing in an elevator and as the doors closed, I noticed a man standing in the hall just outside. When the doors opened again, an old lady was standing more or less where the man was. I thought the elevator had turned him into the old lady.
