New ASMR Website up: ASMRelax

On Facebook I received word that a new website dedicated to ASMR videos is up. This was also posted over on Reddit, as well as the ASMR forum. It turns out that one of our community who seems to go by the handle of Livtonoid, started out with his or her own YouTube channel some time ago. But after a while, he noticed that there seemingly weren’t any websites that served to catalogue and even review ASMR trigger videos (although there is asmrvideos.com).

Going over there to have a look, it’s a simple yet functional design with the basics covered, and all ready a few posts up critiquing a few select trigger videos. So hopefully in time we’ll see it evolve in to a bigger and busier site much like its previously mentioned sister-site.

I've as usual added this under dedicated websites and blogs on the Hotspots page (link in sidebar).

  1. Wow, I can't believe this blog exists. I've been experiencing this feeling since I was a little kid, but I've never discussed it with anyone who knew what I was talking about. I just now decided to Google it, and here I am.

    What led me to find your blog was this video (I was having car fantasies): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7jplt7XKkg. For me, this is the ideal kind of trigger -- someone with a gentle voice (with hints of a lisp) explaining or showing something to me. If I watch this video from the beginning, the ASMR (I've never had a term for it before) feeling really kicks in around 1:30.

    Well, I guess I'm going to read more about ASMR now.

  2. God everyone I ask about this seems to think I'm goosebumps... No.

    It's so hard to explain.

    This does it, for example.

  3. Wow. I can't believe I found this, I had no idea anyone else got this. Not sure why but it didn't occur to me that it could be a 'thing' that others get. Only reason I searched for it now is cos I just got it again, first one for a while.

    The main trigger for me is sound and vibration! If I can feel someone doing something then it sets it off. I also find that if I am tired to begin with then it helps trigger it. Someone brushing past me has triggered it loads of times before. The one about having your hair washed by someone is definitely up there as a trigger for me too. Is it the case for anyone else that if you move, it stops? Not stops dead but basically you feel that it's ebbing away. I try to hardly move, and try to keep whoevers talking to keep talking to keep the buzz going. I must look like all kinds of a freak.

    I remember when I first got this, I was a kid at school, I was feeling the vibration of a kid colouring in a book through his desk next to mine.

    I remember it being the first time ever, I wasn't scared or anything, but was wondering what the hell it was and then just immediately putting it on the pile of all the other stuff I didn't understand about life cos I was a kid.

    I got it just now cos a guy was opening and closing a filing cabinet looking for something. It hasn't entirely gone away yet but it's not as intense as the first 30 seconds anymore.

    I WISH I knew how to provoke it! I sometimes get it when my girlfriend fingers through my hair and says 'ohhh look you have dandruff', so basically I stopped washing my hair so she keeps up the curiosity and instigates this head buzz. I should really tell her.

  4. I HATE not having anyone to talk to about this! Any time I bring 'the feeling' up in conversation they either think it's 'goosebumps' or where i'm 'sexually arroused' it's SO frustrating!

    Does anyone have a good way of explaining what the feeling is and what it feels like because even I can't explain it and I've had it for many many years.

    Mine usually triggers through physical situations like someone massaging me. I play lots of sports and a good level and get muscle massages often, I think it's gotten to a point where I don't care about the massage I just crave the ASMR feeling.

    It's almost addictive, without trying to sound to weird.
    I have insomnia aswell so if I get the feeling when I'm trying to sleep I feel it helps me A LOT!

    Thought I'd just have my 2 cents! :)
