ASMR

So. This has been an addiction to mine for the last few months. ASMR is the 'tingling' you get in the back of your scalp that comes from soft whispering, light touch, scratching sounds, ect.

"Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a physical sensation characterized by a pleasurable tingling that typically begins in the head and scalp, and often moves down the spine and through the limbs.

Most ASMR episodes begin by an external or internal trigger, and are so divided for classification. Type A episodes are elicited by the experiencer using no external stimuli, and are typically achieved by specific thought patterns unique to the individual. Type B episodes are triggered involuntarily by an external trigger, via one or more senses, and may also involve specific thought patterns associated with the triggering event. Both types of triggers vary between individuals, but many are common to a large portion of ASMR enjoyers."

So. I wanted to both share this with other people that might experience it. It is one of the few things that relaxes me completely. So, I wanted to link a few example videos. These videos are pretty long and almost all require headphones to properly listen to them, so feel free to bounce around a bit and turn them up, as they're almost all very, very soft-spoken... Here ya go!

I get ASMR from watching people dance, especially to music I enjoy. I have no idea why this is, but it's been that way for quite some time now.
...I love you for explaining this.

[e]As to the links, I have to have male voices for it to work, it'd seem. E.g., http://youtu.be/kEUCn2m2ARY

Female voices irk the living daylights out of me, even the sweet, soft-spoken ones.

You're welcome! The male whispers just seem too intimate for me, as a straight guy, to get into... But, if you like haircuts, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLypUyOaglk is pretty good.
You know that feeling you get when the dentist scr@pes your teeth in the whitening process? I get that same kind of feeling with the first video, but it's more mild. I got nothing from the last two. Interesting stuff, though. Never heard of it before.
i'm not sure where this ends and "i'm going to tell everyone my sensory turn-ons" begins
