ASMR videos are being watched by thousands of people daily. With the most popular videos hitting over ten million views. Is the success of these videos the calming and relaxing feeling one gets from them or is it something sexual, flirtatious and seductive?
ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. Have you ever experienced a tingle in the head that travels through your spine to the limbs? This tingly sensation is euphoric, relaxing and gives you a feeling of well being. Scientifically it is called ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response), but it has many unofficial names such as braingasms, head tingles or head orgasms. It is a phenomenon that happens with the human body when one hears soft voices or certain soothing sounds such as tapping or scraping of a pen on paper.
