Who else is an ASMR fan? And what is that anyway?
ASMR: Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR for short) describes the experience of a tingling, pleasant feeling on the skin
(so-called tingles); often experienced in a similar way to gentle electrostatic discharges. It typically begins on the scalp at the back of the head and moves along the neck and upper spine to the shoulder area. For most people, this feeling is associated with relaxation, calming, and well-being. ASMR helps many people fall asleep.
This tingling on the skin - who doesn't know it?
A shiver runs over your head like an electric current, followed by a pleasant tingling sensation along the neck, over the shoulders, down to the spine. We are all familiar with these stimuli and know exactly what triggers them in us. For some it's sounds, for others certain touches. Still another reacts to textures, smells or visual stimuli. I have to be honest, of course I know that feeling. I remember how I used to lie with my head on my grandma's lap and she would scratch my back. I can still feel the goose bumps that crawled down my back :D Although, as I read it, the goose bumps effect is on another level and differs from the typical ASMR in that it only lasts a few seconds. ASMR
on the other hand, it can last longer or as long as certain stimuli are created. I'm through with the subject of ASMR for the first time Slime came into contact. Only then did I realize how widespread the topic is, even on social media platforms such as TikTok. Acoustic stimuli are mostly created here by whispering, blowing, stroking the microphone or clicking your fingernails. By the way, my aggression increases immeasurably with this video! So you can't irritate me with acoustic stimuli. ASMR also likes to turn into the opposite. My sister-in-law hates the sound of kneading a slime and once said it made her aggressive. It's a similar story with bubble wrap, who hasn't loved it or still loves gradually bursting the little chambers. The deep cleaning of the skin is also a big ASMR topic on YouTube and Co. So is carpet cleaning or house cleaning. The smell of freshly washed laundry, freshly mowed lawn, petrol or cellar smell (I also had it as a child, by the way loved) The smell of rain on dry earth (called Petrichor) or that sound of the raindrops themselves. wind and sea noise. I could go on like this forever, but I think it's clear what I'm getting at... there are an infinite number of stimuli that can be created and in a wide variety of ways.
ASMR in the toy sector: Cars, Pop It's and Co.
In the category toy Pop It is currently setting the next ASMR trend. There are
but countless toys that can create stimuli. toy car tire on
the table, soft rattling or even squeaking. The soft sound of a pen on a piece of paper. Dipping your fingers in finger paint or watching the sand trickle from one chamber to the next in the hourglass. I also found out through social media that Slime has a big ASMR fan club. There are countless videos on YouTube, Instagram and TikTok that invite you to relax. The kneading, pulling, pressing, smacking the idea of dipping your hand into this soft texture actually relaxes a lot of people. Kneading supplies into the textures brings further relaxation and lots of fun. In fact, once you start kneading and playing with a slime, it's hard to stop - as long as the texture is there.
Which slime is best for ASMR?
If you like a lot of noises, it is suitable Bingsu Slime or Floam Slime especially.
Extra crisp ASMR noises are created here. The integrated Bingsu beads make the slime particularly crunchy. It's the same with them
Styrofoam balls in Floam Slime. But if you prefer a super soft one
Consistency is probably the Butter Slime the first choice. If you get the slimes then
gives it a soft scent, nothing stands in the way of tingling on the skin.
