What to do when people ask if it’s sexual.
Tell them it’s usually not. Part of this misconception arises from early descriptions of the sensation including terms like “brain orgasm.” Sexual ASMR is a whole separate genre, Satori says. “But ASMR in itself is not sexual. It’s a simple feeling.”
“It’s about intimacy, not sex,” ASMR Glow says. “It gives health benefits to so many different people in so many different ways, so why categorize it like that?”
A final piece of advice: When you get in front of the camera, try to be as relaxed and calm as you want your viewers to feel. Be yourself, recall your first or best ASMR experiences, and project that peacefulness, that gentleness out into the world.
Then, edit your ASMR video on your phone or computer, and share to YouTube, Instagram, or other popular social channels. Who knows? Maybe you’ll whisper your way into becoming the next ASMR celebrity.
