How I react to ASMR videos

We all react differetly to life experiences, including ASMR.

I was watching some adsolutely brain-melting, tingly, videos this week and I noticed how depending on the microphone and pace of voice I was triggered differently.

If it was a binaural video, only my left side would be triggered. It almost felt like my right side was completely ignorant of the relaxing feeling.

However, if it were stereo, with no desire for panning, my entire body would be triggered.

Do you have this? Where do you tend to be triggered most? And what videos have you been watching lately for this tingles to arise? :)

ASMR and pleasure

When you see the average ASMR content creator (myself included), we will likely say to somone to help describe the feeling of ASMR that it is a 'tingly pleasurable sensation'. But we're wrong... surely?

ASMR isn't factually pleasurable. I feel the way we describe it tries to cover the whole audience who  feel this, but to some it isn't pleasurable at all. Some describe it as yes tingly, but also an 'uncomfortable' feeling.

This interests me how when someone actively watches an ASMR video, they are overwhelmed by an unstoppable feeling. Is this what makes someone uncomfortable? The control of a sensation so profound and very taboo at this point? Would this feeling be more comfortable had it be less controlled, say in an unintentional atmosphere?

Just food for thought for today. I might make a video discussing ASMR regarding this. We shall see.

So why the name?

Lemurex isn't a word. It's more a re-phrasing of the Latin based word lemures.

My channel to begin with, was not going to be an ASMR channel, just merely a creative outlet, thus why my name is so ill-fitting with such a video type.

Lemures represented spirits wandering the Earth who were unable to get a proper burial thus were in constant pain and agony and sought to reap this onto living people.

I made the channel almost 4 years ago with no set path, but a keen interest in the different and more importantly, in relation to the title question, Philosophy.

I study Philosophy both outside and isnide school, and it is truly bliss to read the different views of many Philosophers from many an age ago.

So why the name? It both defines my interest for the different, aswell as my search for the unsearchable. I was tempted to cut lemurex out and change it for something more befitting to ASMR, but I thought I could credit a small piece of my personality to my channel. So there ya, thats why the name :)

The 'P' Word

Patreon for anyone that didn't know has seen to be viewed as something controversial, thus the title for this particular blog post. 

I have been reflecting on the pros and cons of this website now and have decided to ask you, if you think if it is a good idea for me to pursue it.

For anyone that doesn't know, Patreon is basically a reward and pay system for your favourite Youtubers to help them get better equipment and be more stable in terms of emergencies ( equipment breaks etc).

In the grand scheme of things, I never thought anything I do or did was worth someone offering '$100 a month'.

So I ask you, what do you think about Patreon? Love it/hate it? Should I pursue it?
