Do Covert Japan Videos Induce ASMR?
I associate the feeling with safety, sympathy, and love. I labeled this feeling part of the human experience and moved on with life. While I don't purposely seek out the sensation, I do enjoy it greatly when it comes on spontaneously. I suppose the best colloquial term for it would be a "brain massage" or "brain orgasm." I don't directly connect the feeling to sex because I think it differs enough from a sexual orgasm to command its own category; however, I can understand how others may make such a connection given the intimate and euphoric sensations.
I recently stumbled upon a detailed Wikipedia article documenting this sensation. It seems it has been given the scientific-sounding name "ASMR," which stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. As I had only reported my experience with it during my life to a couple of girlfriends, it was comforting to know that a significant portion of the population experiences it. Shared human experience validates your own existence.
* Thank you for reading up to this point. Given the uniqueness of the topic, I think a wordy preface was necessary. I've finally reached the main point of this little article. *
While editing a few past Covert Japan videos, I noticed the footage would sometimes induce ASMR in me. It would usually be during a POV sequence, especially my personal favorite sequence where the girl would slowly undress the guy. I assumed this ASMR was isolated to me given my firsthand relationship with the video footage, so I was surprised to see a Covert Japan video appear in a Reddit ASMR post (NSFW sub-reddit of course).
It's not intentional, and in fact I think intentionally trying to induce ASMR would undermine the whole thing. It's spontaneous by definition. Therefore, we have no plans to produce a deliberate ASMR video. But at the same time, I can't help but be a little curious...
Have our videos ever triggered ASMR in you?
