Today’s Debate: is ASMR porn?

I am so weirdly turned on right now.

I first heard about ASMR  – which stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response – a couple years ago, although I’ve experienced it, like most people, all my life. It’s that tingly feeling of pleasure that starts on the scalp and travels down your spine. A shiver of pleasure.

ASMR videos are weirdly specific. Each catering to a specific thing. The sound of ‘putting a jacket on’or ‘carving soap’ or ‘you’re captured as a pokemon’.

Wait, what? Okay, just go with it.

There are hundreds and hundreds of ASMR videos on Youtube, and while not definitive, anecdotal research says that it’s pretty much porn without the porn.

Right in my wheelhouse.

And yet up until this day I’ve found it kindof creepy and annoying. But no more. I think maybe all it took was the right approach.

Youtuber FreshBlush ASMR has somehow locked into the precise Achilles heel of my fetish for fantasy and scifi. Stumbling on her video for the Cozy Babblebrook Inn I was entranced for a full half hour. More than that. I was… turned on.

But why?

First of all, let’s start with the obvious: redheads, amirite?

It can’t just be that. But what is it? The sound of cutting bread? Her fingers on a map to show me the way to the witch’s cottage? Maybe. But what got me was the intimacy. The conspiratorial whisper like you hear curled up in bed with someone. I found myself remembering the same technique employed by the waitress at my favorite brunch place (heuvos rancheros ftw) who would rest her hand on my back or shoulder (the technique to establish intimacy with customers and get bigger tips). And the sortof false BFF tone girls who help me try on clothes in a store have.

And sure enough, the next segment of the ASMR video was exactly that – admiring my coat and sewing a tear.

Honestly I can’t say ASMR makes me want to rub the elf, but it does make me want to curl up with my boy after coming so hard. It’s like auditory oxytocin.
