“Ear Porn” (asmr) and how it can help you sleep. (nsfw)

***BEST IF YOU HAVE HEAD PHONES***

ASMR occurs in response to certain stimuli and has also been likened to a ‘head orgasm'.

If you haven't yet heard of ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response), well, things are about to get weird.

Defined as a “calming, pleasurable feeling often accompanied by a tingling sensation”, ASMR occurs in response to certain stimuli and has also been likened to a ‘head orgasm'.

The stimuli that trigger ASMR vary from person to person, but some of the most common ones are said to include whispers, white noise, lip smacking, tapping on hard surfaces, brushing sounds and even the sound of someone eating. (Surely someone else's worst nightmare, but hey, each to their own.

The whole point of ASMR is to relax people, and believe it or not, it's a big business, especially on the internet.

In short, it's a thing, though scientifically, we don't really know that much about it.

The first formal study of ASMR was published in 2015 and found when it comes to triggers, there are four main types.

These were whispering (75 percent), personal attention (69 percent), crisp sounds (64 percent) and slow movements (53 percent).

In terms of why people seek out ASMR, an overwhelming number (98 percent) of study participants said they used it as an opportunity for relaxation, while 82 percent agreed they used ASMR to help them go to sleep.

Only five percent reported using ASMR media for sexual stimulation.

Even Margot Robbie did an ASMR video and you need to watch it! Press play below.

The study then went on to suggest that, much like meditation and mindfulness, ASMR could improve mood and pain symptoms and may even provide temporary relief for depression.

Our Limitless Life team has fallen in LOVE with ASMR.

We love to take an AVA capsule or a few sips of AVA drink and bliss out for an hour, or if its bedtime, a few sprays of AURORA spray and pass the fudge out!

Grab your AURORA or AVA, open youtube, search ASMR, find your fave video and give it a try!
