It doesn't do anything for me. confused
All that silly whispering, from left to right. I don't get it. confused
Am I being an old grump?

Or is it simply a case of finding the right one?

Not everybody gets tingles from it. If you don't get tingles from gentlewhispering on YouTube it's safe to say you're impervious.

It's still great just to relax with though. Personally I do get tingles but I hate the ear to ear stuff and tapping noises.

Gives me tingles

What is it?

Atlas15 Thu 30-Jun-16 22:35:07

Google it.

Never heard of though OP. Until I googled it obviously.

I think it's meant to be quite subjective, works for some people and not for others so if popular videos haven't worked on you then it's likely it just wouldn't work for you at all. I used to get it when I was a child but don't now.

No definition yet? I call bullshit!!!

Latentprint Thu 30-Jun-16 22:37:54

I'm jealous. I'm not getting the tingles wink

MaddyHatter Thu 30-Jun-16 22:38:58

its very subjective.. i can't STAND it, its like nails on a chalk board to me.

I have friends who love it though, but they know not to send me the videos!

I get ASMR but also have misophonia, so am really picky about which videos I listen Some give me the full-on intense head tingles, some knock me out into proper deep sleep, and some trigger my misophonic rage. So maybe it is a case of finding the 'right one' wink

janethegirl2 Thu 30-Jun-16 22:40:14

Just googled it. It is bullshit!

MaddyHatter Thu 30-Jun-16 22:40:33

ought to add, i have Misophonia, so it's hardly surprising i want to smack the ASMR people grin

RudeElf Thu 30-Jun-16 22:40:45

If it involves whispering i know for sure i'll hate it.

It works for me. Well, some of it does, other elements don't do much for me.

I find lots of it super relaxing and it helps me get to sleep.

LadyStarkOfWinterfell Thu 30-Jun-16 22:41:04

It's not bullshit, it's something that some people like and others don't. Like lots of things. What's your problem?

MaddyHatter Thu 30-Jun-16 22:41:58

Jane, its not bullshit, its supposed to work along the same lines as white noise, there's certain noises and tones that give people pleasant sensation.

dudsville Thu 30-Jun-16 22:42:18

What does asmr strange for please?

janethegirl2 Thu 30-Jun-16 22:42:41

I've no problem. If ppl think it works for them, ok. But it is still bullshit!

Ellioru Thu 30-Jun-16 22:42:47

Huh? It works for me. Sometimes it's the only way I can manage to fall asleep at night.

Latentprint Thu 30-Jun-16 22:42:54

ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and it refers to a phenomenon which is very difficult to explain to those that do not experience it. It is usually experienced through a relaxing tingling in the scalp and the back of the neck and can extend into the rest of the body.

There are about a million ASMR examples on Youtube.

I only heard about it the other day.
Apparently it's been a 'thing' for a while confused

MaddyHatter Thu 30-Jun-16 22:43:22

Autonomous sensory meridian response

janethegirl2 Thu 30-Jun-16 22:44:40

A bit woo-woo, if you're into that!

Atlas15 Thu 30-Jun-16 22:44:52

Wow just thinking about this make me think that I have experienced this.
Can you get it from certain peoples voices.
Sometimes I find a certain persons voice relaxing and I want them to carry on talking.
