As an ASMR hunter, Audiophiliac and Synesthette, I've definitely become enamored with some of the videos available on youtube. I wanted to know if there was anyone that experiences ASMR or at least Audiophilia, and how. Plus, if anyone else out there has Synesthesia, I'd be interested in chatting about that.
ASMR stands for Auto Sensory Meridian Response and is the name for a family of responses triggered by a myriad of sounds or visuals. The common thread in them is generally that they are generated by another nearby person. Some common triggers are nails tapping/scratching, clicking or crinkling noises, whispering, accents, receiving help, massages or customer service... I know, odd list. There's more information here.
I've always been highly fond of metallic clicking, whirring and grinding (which sort of overlaps with my technophilia and has a lot to do with why I like Iron Man and Transformers movies). ASMR-wise I love crinkling plastics, though they don't ever seem to trigger me that well. Anywho, I thought I'd post some favored videos of mine and see if there was anyone else out there that got the mysterious tingles and twinges in the spine and head that we know and love as ASMR. Listening with headphones is recommended.
PS: if you don't 'get' ASMR this will seem insane to you, lol.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbeNK8r9KVo&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PLFE33F5F021A245DE

Lots of great, close to the ear noises.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAsZQfEF-JQ&list=UU6fzfWKde1lcgodpcP5rmkQ&index=9&feature=plcp
An unboxing (I love unboxings) with sand.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCN9o8zsa_g&list=UU6fzfWKde1lcgodpcP5rmkQ&index=6&feature=plcp

One of my lifetime favorites, rummaging through a purse.
Anyway, this may seem weird, but I must say I do have a lot of -philias and obsessions, many that aren't particularly sexual, so this is the sort of non-RP chatter you can expect from me. Let me know what you think!
