Episode Info:

Do you like it when somebody whispers gently into your ear? Strokes a brush along your cheek? Bites down on a crunchy pickle? These are just some of the triggers you can find among the millions of ASMR videos on Youtube. But what actually is ASMR? Why are so many people using it to fall asleep at night?

ASMR artist and NSFW content creator Karuna Satori also weighs in on the sex debate and tells the shocking story of how ASMR saved her life.
