Sometimes before I go to bed, I like to watch videos on YouTube of girls whispering into a camera while role-playing. These role-plays can be visits to the dentist, sometimes it's a nurse or maybe a hairdresser. Occasionally I watch boys too, but I've always preferred the female videos. These videos cause me to feel tingles.
I experienced ASMR long before I knew what sexual attraction was
And these tingles are in a different part of my body
ASMR sends people to sleep, porn does notSomeone who creates adult films for a living would be offended if they found out people were falling asleep during their creations. The purpose of adult films are to arouse and excite. Whereas most ASMR videos are designed to help people relax and even fall asleep. Some insomniacs swear by them.
One of the best comparisons is a massage
But yes, ASMR fetish videos do exist
However ASMR is not porn and isn't sexual by default. So the next time someone informs you that they use ASMR to relax, take it at face value and don't assume you've been given some insight into what they jerk off to in their bedroom.
P.S. Read my other post where I introduce ASMR?
