Tingle Tuesday ASMR Porn

asmr            Well, I guess I am not surprised that it happened, but I am kind of concerned by it and worry that as long as it continues, ASMR will struggle to be accepted by mainstream clinicians. Naturally, I am talking about ASMR porn.

After telling everyone that ASMR is not about fetishes and sex, there are some ASMRtists who are making a name for themselves applying ASMR techniques against a backdrop that is infused with sexual innuendo. For the record, I do not have a problem with anyone making an honest buck and I am not prudish enough to pretend that sex doesn’t sell, but I really hoped that ASMR would not go off in this direction. Unfortunately for some ASMRtists…it has.

One of these particular videos popped up in my suggestion queue one night and because I am a researcher, I watched it. While I am sure that there may be some people who can feel the ASMR sensation based on this individual’s voice and actions, it did not work on me and based on the shear number of subscribers she had in such a very short amount of time, I highly doubt most folks are tuning in to get some sleep. Like I said, I don’t judge the individual for doing it, but as ASMR has become more monetized, I think we will see more of this coming up just as we have seen an influx in people using the high-end microphones, cameras and special effects.

Naturally I am not in favor of ASMR porn. I think it cheapens the ASMR platform and I have my doubts about those people who say they truly tune in for the ASMR experience. If you are getting an ASMR tingle from these individuals, it is NOT because of what they are wearing, it is due to the frequency of their voice, and your individual ASMR triggers. They would still be able to give you an ASMR buzz if they were wearing jeans and a t-shirt instead of a see-through negligee. I truly hope this new trend in ASMR porn will dissipate fairly quickly and that these ASMRtists will transition into more traditional ASMR content. I think it cheapens the ASMR image. I worry for their cyber safety and it’s not something that the community should promote. But that’s just my two cents on the subject.
