Polls about ASMR

Scroll down to take some polls related to your thoughts and experiences about ASMR.

After you make your selection and click “Vote”, you will see all the data from prior visitors.

If you have already voted and just want to see the data then click “View Results.”  The data from the polls are specific to the visitors to this website and may not represent the general population or other specific populations.

 

 

 

Note about the poll above when viewing results: because it is “Select All That Apply” the total votes does not equal the total voters because each voter could vote more than once.  To get an estimate of the number of voters, look at the total votes on other polls which were not “Select All That Apply.” because those total votes = total voters.

  1. I am very interested in the overlap with sex. It seems to be a subset in the ASMR community and very little acknowledged.

    I have many non-sexual, mostly tactile triggers, some audio and visual. All research is very exciting

  2. I have never given my experiences much thought until I recently learned about ASMR, which was
    literally just this week. My first experience was when I was about six years old in school and a female
    classmate was drawing something for me. Watching her draw, and the sounds of the pencil on the paper
    induced such an intense calm, I remember so relaxed that I didn’t feel like moving. I always thought of my reaction as a “drooling stupor”. That’s the only way I knew to describe it. So my first ASMR experience involved someone drawing with pencil and paper. Successive triggers include getting my hair washed and cut and having my hands or scalp massaged.

    One recurring trigger I enjoy most is when I would get a bandage applied to my skin. That started when I was around seven years old. I had cut my thumb with a steak knife and I ran crying to my mother. She took me into the bathroom and got out the old metal tin of Band-Aid bandages. The whole event that included her speaking softly to me, the crinkly sound of the wrapper being opened, the little zip-sounds of the backing being peeled away from the bandage, and the tingle the instant the bandage made contact with the skin. That was the most memorable trigger and ASMR event I’ve had. If anyone remembers when bandages came in the metal tins, you probably also remember the scent they had when you opened the box. That used to trigger my ASMR sometimes too. The feel of the bandage sticking to my skin would keep the tingles going for a long time after it’s been applied.

    My last memorable bandage trigger happened one night when I was working at the hospital. I was talking to a fellow nurse about bandages and how I liked having them stuck to my skin. She actually took a bandage, slowly opened the wrapper, and stuck the bandage to the back of my hand. My entire hand tingled and the tingles went up my arm. I was so instantly relaxed that I could barely move. The tingles were so intense that I had to will myself to peel off the bandage so I could go back to working.

    My whole life I have always had an affinity for bandages and even have a collection of them. I never really talked about it much with other people because I thought I was just weird or something. But now I understand it is all connected to ASMR and that makes it so much easier to explain to the cashier when I come through the line with several boxes of bandages.

  3. I would really like to know what ASMR triggers to some are actually anxiety producing triggers to others. Personally, mouth sounds (chewing, sounds of toungue or lips parting), and audible breathing make me panicky. Both in real life and ASMR. I get super super anxious and can’t focus on the rest of the video. Because of this, I’m EXTREMELY picky when it comes to choosing videos and artists. I find Made in France ASMR and ASMR darling and ASMRrequests on YouTube are fantastic

  4. Mine is triggered by answering surveys on the telephone – I recall getting asked about for my opinion about the militiary, vodka brands and things. I turn into Homer Simpson when he’s thinking about donuts. It’s like my brain is being massaged. I seemed to get it less as I’m older. Is that normal?
