Favourite ASMR


Recommended Posts

Is anyone else into ASMR? I don't like the talking videos, but I find the soap crunching ones to be nice. 

However, my favourite ASMR to watch are the food ones, which is super weird because if I hear something chewing IRL, it makes me so irritated. I'm coming to realize that I don't care so much for their eating noise, but I like to see what they're eating. So I'm starting to gravitate more towards mukbangs. I like the more exotic channels because they eat so differently than I do. I love the cooking process, so I like when they include that in the beginning of the video. 

Favourite Youtubers to watch:
- SAS Asmr
- Linh 
- Dorothy
- NE Let's Eat
- LiBi TV

The only ASMR videos I’ve really seen are dog ones... maybe I’ll check the human ones out too!!

For the longest time, I did not understand the whole ASMR thing. But now I realize that is because all of the really popular ASMR is so NOT for me. I hate chewing noises, lip smacks, heavy breathing, blowing, any talking/whispering, finger taps, etc etc. That's what a lot of ASMR is that I've seen. 

I started thinking maybe there was, in fact, ASMR I liked when I came across the Baumgartner Restoration videos. He didn't initially call his videos ASMR (and it's still not the main purpose of them), he runs an art restoration business and the noises made by the tools he uses are soooooo nice. Then I came across Shu and Tree that does dog grooming videos, and I loved the scissor noises. So now I look for scrapping, brushes, scissors, outdoor wind/seaside, soap carving, tibetan bowl ASMR videos. I'm super picky about them though. 🤣

How did I miss this thread.  Without YouTube and ASMR vids I wouldn't be getting the little sleep I can manage.

I rotate my favorites but lately 

  • Lizi ASMR
  • Be Brave Be You (just discovered her and if I'm ever sick I want her to be my fake nurse - she's super comforting)
  • Lune Innate (select vids, without tapping)

I listen to npr or bbc documentaries about pleasant topics. A good soothing radio voice is magic.

I wish I could listen to the guy who narrated mutual of omaha wild kingdom documentaries.

I can't imagine using some of these videos to fall asleep. It's nice soothing sounds and then all of a sudden there's an ad blaring away. I feel like it'd wake me up!

The ones I listen to front load their ads.  I agree with you - that would wake me right up.

Marlin Perkins.  If you do a search on YouTube there are quite a few of his half hour or so length shows.

For some reason the sort of ASMR with the chewing, breathing, tapping, whispering... any of that stuff is the exact opposite of relaxing to me. Like it literally makes rage boil up in my body if I can't make it stop.  

I love Baumgartner Restoration, though! I prefer the narrated videos, myself. Rather than actual ASMR I prefer relaxing videos like his, or Townsend's (18th century historical cooking), The Victorian Way cooking videos from English Heritage, and other videos like that. Recently some videos of different sorts of medical exams (demonstrating them for med students, I assume) came up, and those are pretty good too depending on the instructor. I prefer people with nice voices doing things, rather than deliberate ASMR videos.

I think the one that probably put me actually to sleep was the hour-long "gem therapy" video that shuffled up.

Yes...if it's who I'm thinking of her voice and the spraying she does knocks me right out.

I can't stand anything chewing or weird mouth sound related, and I don't like tapping.  I have misophonia where mouth sounds make me ragey.  I don't love whispering...I prefer the soft spoken.

It's weird how some totally innocuous thing can do it.  ASMR Jonie (used to be Whispers Latina) has a respiratory check up where the way she does the percussions on the back and chest is totally triggering in the best way and I have no idea why.

I don't get ASMR triggers from them but I love his videos!  There is a cross-over (in name) with a similar series from the UK that I just adore...he sends her period American food.

I love watching ASMR Massage videos. It's so incredibly relaxing to me. But I only want to hear the massage sounds. No whispering or talking, can't stand that.
And I love joint cracking videos. I don't know why, but that's just super relaxing to me. EXCEPT finger cracking. I hate that. 

I can't deal with sounds of people eating, lip smacking, whispering, breathing heavily. That makes my skin crawl. So I really only watch the massage and joint crack videos, and of the latter usually only compilations that have filtered out the talking.

Also, I have a very short attention span, so I tend to prefer videos that are between 10-17 minutes.

I like CAM ASMR & Massage. Most of his videos are 10-15 minutes. No talking or whispering. Great.
Some videos of RelaxWithReena. Her Massage and back tracing videos are great, but she also has a lot of chewing and smacking ASMR videos which I really don't like.
Shiatsu Shane. I like that a lot of times he uploads two versions of a particular video: one with background music and one without. However, most of his videos are on the longer side for me. I've only managed two ever finish one or two of his shorter videos. The longer ones I never finish.
Crack Addicts. Have some good videos, but they tend to keep a lot of the talking in their videos and I don't like that. Just give me the cracking sounds and visuals.
Skoby HD. They are no longer active but their joint cracking videos are awesome. And really short.

I briefly looked at some of the ASMR videos, and could not find any I like.

The ones with people whispering kind of give me the heebie jeebies, too, @Alisamer.  Same with the food chewing, lip smacking, etc.

For anyone who has Amazon Prime, they have tons of Bob Ross' painting videos at no cost to Prime members.  Bob can usually make me drift off to sleep.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
