strangely that one gave mild tingles to me. :P

Truth be told, this stuff doesn't work on me. I kind of figure its one of those things that people want to believe so it works on them. I just thought it was funny for OOOOOMNOMNOMNOM to be a trigger haha.

it works different for each person, some less, some more and sometimes not at all until the right one is found.

I’m not 100% on all the rules here, but I’m pretty sure this means you have to name the baby after me. 😝

It would be really nice if someone would define ASMR for those of us who don't follow popular American culture.

It seems to be about touchy-feely stuff, but what does ASMR actually mean?  I tried a websearch and got porn.

Thanks.

Watched Disney's The Sword in the Stone yesterday for the first time in a while. I always loved the song in this opening scene, not just the song itself but the singer's voice. Clear light brown with beautiful resonance and timbre and that lovely constant vibrato. Always get chills on the note when he sings the first syllable of "London". I don't know if this is ASMR, I don't get tingles and ASMR videos generally just annoy me, but it seems to be the closest I get and it's always with music or musical sounds.

I hate the way voices are so often compressed in recordings so even if there is that timbre, you can't hear it. It also means proper, un-autotuned, un-compressed, trained voices start sounding "thin" to  lot of people, even though that's what a real human voice sounds like, dips and shimmers.

While it doesn't have the same effect on me, I can quite understand why that would do a certain something in the brain.

I have similar triggers - I mean, I never knew about the ASMR thing - but certainly certain sights and sounds cause a dopamine release in my brain.

Songwise, the ones that immediate come to my mind are when Joe Elliott in Def Leppard sings "I lose control" at 02:13 . Maybe one has to like the whole song (or even Def Leppard) to get that one.

 

And the opening notes of Many too Many by Genesis, just connects my head to my heart for some unknown reason.

I once looked up "Cherry Boy" (it was the name of a plaster of paris ornament my elderly aunties gave to me) and that gave up a frightening array of porn!

An illustration of the route of ASMR's tingling sensation[1]

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR), sometimes auto sensory meridian response,[2][3][4] is a tingling sensation that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. A pleasant form of paresthesia,[5] it has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia[6][7] and may overlap with frisson.

ASMR signifies the subjective experience of "low-grade euphoria" characterized by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin". It is most commonly triggered by specific auditory or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control.[1

I’ve tried many different results for ASMR on YouTube & never found anything akin to the description Marigold posted from her search after listening.  I have discovered a few recordings of Tom Hardy, Collin Firth & John Nettles reading various things & I enjoy just sinking into their voices with headphones for a bit.  I have difficulty comprehending verbal communication anymore tho, so I don’t listen for long.

But to fall asleep I tune to the channel dish network airs a Yule log on during the holiday season.  This year they started doing themes for each month.  This month is an animated seashore.  A surfer paddles out at one point, there’s a sailboat, some little crabs, birds calling & the sunset & rise.  I watch it as I wait to fall asleep, pretending my tv is a window at my fancy posh resort.  (Tho if I were someplace like that likely I’d be on a lounge chair on the lanai- not in my room but hey, it’s a nice fantasy).
