  1. I first noticed intensity when I started school age 6. Teacher silently checking my homework or reading something I had written triggered unbelievable sensation.


  2. My first experiences with ASMR began in kindergarten when our teacher would have us sit on the carpet as she read us a story. I had long hair and one of the girls in my class liked to play with it. The combination of someone playing with my hair combined with the book sounds was so relaxing and the memory of it is so vivid.


  3. Started not long after I had a Mystical experience about 8 years ago when I was 49.
    May be best to say outright that I’m likely not typical, being autistic (with sensory issues and some sythenesia) and transgender (both recognized 5 years ago) and seem to have responses that go beyond what’s reported here. When a peak is reached, I’m cackling like a witch from MacBeth, which can take some minutes to subside


  4. Im 10 i’ve had ASMR since i was 5 at first I didn’t know what it was until i watched Reaction time react to it the I understood the feeling. I was triggered by my pencil writing, Somebody touching my hair, and the teacher tapping a number block, ECT. Yes now i get tingles from the videos more often beacause i understand what i’m listening to.
