The first time I came across this phenomenon I think it was through a recommended You Tube video. Thanks, YouTube.

ASMR, or Autonomous sensory meridian response, is an euphoria sensation that some people experence when confronted to specific sounds, like whispering or even the ones from a massage.

And this is definitely getting bigger and bigger on the Internet, some channels dedicated to this count several hundred thousands subscribers, and the videos, at least the decently well produced ones, are globally well received by their public.

Here are the interesting thoughts of the YouTuber theodd1sout, after he read and analyzed the whole wikipedia page about it.

Does this work for you?
