Default Anyone else experience ASMR?

Never knew there was a term for it until today.

This is Wikipedia's description:
Quote:
Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a neologism for a perceptual phenomenon characterized as a distinct, pleasurable tingling sensation in the head, scalp, back, or peripheral regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, olfactory, and/or cognitive stimuli. The nature and classification of the ASMR phenomenon is controversial. Tom Stafford, a professor at the University of Sheffield, says, "It might well be a real thing, but it's inherently difficult to research."[1]
Basically certain sounds in isolation, usually quiet and repetitive ones, invoke a tingling and relaxing sensation throughout the body that feels really good, almost like the build-up to an orgasm

I've always experienced it but didn't realize youtube people made videos just for it until recently. It puts your brain into a sort of trance, certain voices and vocal stimuli have always done it for me. None of the videos fully below fully do it for me, but they have somewhat of an effect

ASMR relaxing sounds - blackboard - YouTube


3D Sounds - Haircut (Extended Version) - YouTube


ASMR Drawing and writing on the blackboard, chalkboard, chalk (whispering video) - YouTube

Yes Hi, from the pictures of the vids alone I can testify that it appears that it matches the phenomena as I often get this when I am being creative in works or watching/ listening to successful expressions which are heartfet and meaningful like, hey maan I must get out of me this rage moments. I didnt even watch the youtube.

I've heard of this but I've never really checked it out. I'll assume that it works, because a lot of people like to listen to very relaxing sounds during meditation.
