You know that tingle you get when someone whispers into your ear? Or the sudden sense of peace and serenity you feel when it’s raining outside? What about when you get a good head scratch? All wonderful things, right? Those feelings are called ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) and it’s the best thing out there to help you relax, and probably my favourite type of YouTube video next to derpy dog fails.
But what is really doing to us, and is it as effective as people claim. The folks at The Sleep Judge asked 1,000 people to tell them the personal benefits they got from ASMR, how certain videos made them feel, and now some considered it even better than sex.
Personally, I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s close.
