Tingle All The Way: ASMR for the Dead of Winter

Share this:

For those that don’t know: Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or ASMR, is a phenomenon in which individuals feel a pleasant, tingling sensation, often on their scalps. These tingles can be caused by a wide variety of “triggers,” including various sounds. There, all the boring stuff is out of the way and we can get into the goodies. If you’ve got the winter blues and you’re still shaking over Uncle Bob’s special brand of holiday dinner assholery conversation, we totally understand. Join us as we throw on some headphones and drift away into these relaxing tingles.
