Lily Rose roused my sensual side by referencing Synaesthesia and in so doing reminded me of a secret pleasure which I'd like to share. For as long as I can remember I have found certain things intensely pleasurable, common activities such as watching a long-haired woman brush her locks, or the soothing sweeping of someone gathering leaves. It makes me tingle and shimmer from my head, and sometimes in a rush down my spine. I used to believe it was a personal oddity but one night while seeking a relaxing video on youtube, the search returned a recording of a beautiful young lady whispering to the camera while brushing her hair. The sensual pleasure was immense and that night I learned that I am not alone. Although rare, many other people experience it too. It has a name. It is called Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR). An explanation for you: "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. Also known as : AIE (Attention induced euphoria), or simply "head tingles". This is sometimes referred to as head orgasms, but this is about as sexual as saying eating chocolate is orgasmic (in that it's not sexual). This physical phenomenon isn't experienced by everyone. If you've never had it before, you most likely won't feel it from the different triggers in this subreddit. NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH MUSIC BASED TINGLES/SHIVERS Those are called frisson. COMMON TRIGGERS Slow speech patterns, accents, soft-speaking voices and whispers. Lip sounds/smacking/eating Clicking sounds, brushing sounds, white noise, etc. Painting/drawing Instructional videos Watching other people performing simple tasks, Getting close, personal attention from someone (eye-exam, make-over, etc.) Haircuts, people playing with your hair, Bob Ross." Info comes from http://www.reddit.com/r/asmr/ I'm curious to know if anyone else experiences this?
