Video – ASMR Revisited

Listen to this article

Earlier this year I wrote an article about wet shaving and Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR).  There seems to be renewed interest in the subject in the media, so I thought I would perform an experiment of sorts.

ASMR And Shaving?

As I said in my previous article, according to Wikipedia, “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR)…is a perceptual phenomenon characterized as a distinct, pleasurable tingling sensation in the head, scalp, back, or peripheral regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, or cognitive stimuli.”  Beyond Amplified has a good article about it, too.

ASMR videos are getting more popular on Youtube and I have seen a few with shaving themes.  So I decided to make one myself.  Take a look at it.  Does it stimulate a pleasurable response?  Leave a comment!

  1. No stumuli…..Always enjoy watching a pro shave.looks like you had quite a growth,note you did not use a progress,out of favor??what razor did you use,looks and sounds very efficient.

  2. I found it very relaxing to listen to, but it didn’t trigger ASMR in me. Everyone has different stimuli, for some people visuals and personal attention trigger ASMR, hence the popularity of barber shop shave roleplays. For others it’s specific sounds in my case it would be sounds like wind, rain, and engine rumbles.

  3. For me it’s not excitatory, it is a meditative and soothing from the process of it, from heating the scuttle through the cleanup.
