  1. I cannot remember. I am over 60 and have experienced it for years–didn’t think much of it. I recall having the sensation over 30 years ago while watching someone cleaning at an airport. I think I experienced it before then though. I never paid much attention to it.


  2. My earliest distinct memory of ASMR is at 19, thought I knew about the feeling as young as 8 but don’t remember actually experiencing it.
    In childhood, I believe having my hair touched triggered it (but no distinct memory). My first real memory of ASMR is watching my college roommate meticulously and carefully dust our dorm room with a feather duster. I was entranced and felt embarrassed by how closely I was watching her, but I couldn’t look away! I didn’t know what ASMR was until almost a year later.
    My triggers haven’t changed at all.


  3. I was probably 4 or 5 years old. I would ask people to play with my hair or tickle my arm. I also loved watching Bob Ross and had favorite teachers who would read softly and made nice noises when turning the book pages.


  4. As a preteen, I started watching hypnotherapy and guided meditation videos to get those tingling sensations. I originally started watching them because I wanted to do an experiment on myself. I would play hypnotherapy right before bed to see if the positive messages that were being played on the recordings would carry over while I slept. It created different results, and I was hooked to getting the soothing tingling effects before ASMR was even a thing.
