ASMR is something that invokes a relaxing, satisfying, or tingling sensation. It stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and refers specifically to positive an tingling feelings triggered by audio and visual stimuli. ASMR videos are popular on social media and YouTube. They feature a wide-range of “oddly satisfying” audiovisual content such as eating, soft-toned speaking, slime, and gentle touching. Many ASMR videos involve role play. ASMR is sometimes combined with erotic or pornographic elements, but ASMR is not inherently sexual.
