The first ASMR experience I can remember is when I was 9 years old.
What is your earliest memory of experiencing ASMR? Around age 5.
What triggered ASMR for you in your childhood? A teacher talking Adolescence? Different people talking to me
Adulthood? Same thing, different people talking to me. It was always someone who talked in a kind of odd manner or who had a speech impediment. Old ppl often trigger me. I think it’s because they talk more slowly. Now as an adult I’ve noticed that different sounds trigger me as well. Not just voices.
Have your ASMR triggers changed as you have gotten older? Yes. Like I said in above paragraph, as a child I was triggered by voices only and now I’m triggered by all sorts of sounds and sometimes by watching ppl do menial tasks in a very methodical way.

ASMR can be experienced at any age with the appropriate trigger. Everyone is different and triggers vary depending on the individual.
I can clearly remember, when I first had ASMR experience. I was 14 when we finished primary school and younger girls recorded a casette for us as a memory (They fall in love with the boys in our class 🙂 so they were very sad.) They were talking on the casette when a girl began to cry very quietly and it could be heard that she took out a handkerchief from a plastic bag. I always rewound the tape into this point because I always felt very nice tingles on the top of my head.
20 years later when I saw an article with the title: ‘Do you know what cerebral orgasm is?’ I immediately knew that this is what I felt then. The article was about the ASMR. 🙂
