Quick ASMR Definition
ASMR means Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response.
What Does ASMR Mean? – The Full Answer
ASMR is a slang abbreviation that stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response.
It is a pleasurable tingling sensation that typically begins on the head and moves down to the back of the neck and upper spine. For some people, it can even spread down to the limbs.
The aim of asmr is to experience calm, relaxation and positive feelings. Many people use it to help them go to sleep.
Stimuli that trigger asmr vary from person to person, but some of the most common are:
- A softly spoken or whispering voice.
- Quiet, repetitive sounds from a mundane task, such as tapping a hard object or turning the pages of a book.
- Watching someone carrying out a mundane task, such as preparing food.
- Listening to someone chewing or crunching food or slurping a drink.
- Receiving tender personal attention, such as getting your hair cut.
- Listening to someone explain a concept, or describe an object or system.
Watching and listening to a video of someone performing these actions can trigger asmr. Consequently there are a huge number of videos on platforms such as YouTube and Twitch, in which the video creator speaks in a soft voice and makes various sounds with inanimate objects in order to elicit asmr reactions from viewers. Popular asmr YouTubers include ASMR Darling, Gentle Whispering ASMR, ASMR PPOMO and Gigi ASMR.
