Autonomous sensory meridian response (or ASMR) is currently a trending type of online therapy flooding youtube. Supposedly watching these whispering ladies imaginarily massage you will induce "distinct, pleasurable tingling sensation in the head, scalp, back, or peripheral regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, or cognitive stimuli." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomous_sensory_meridian_response So far there isn't much scientific evidence to back any of this up, but I've seen stories on it featured on several newscasts (including the usually reputable Australian Broadcast Network) and now its filling up my Facebook feed. Skeptical, I watched two separate videos on one of the more popular youtube channels 'ASMRrequests', both with millions of views and surprisingly I experienced.. nothing. Maybe lulled into some sort of peaceful meditation, but I could do that with some relaxing music anyway I think. Has anyone else experienced these 'synthetic brain orgasms' or experimented with this ASMR stuff? I feel like its bunk, but would like to hear some other peoples opinions.
