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.
