> ASMR is a physical sensation characterised by a pleasurable tingling that typically begins in the head and scalp. It is commonly triggered by soft or accented voices, personal attention, ambient sounds or watching people work silently, among others.
>Also referred to colloquially as "head tingles".
>This subreddit was created to share videos that elicit this sensation (either intentionally or unintentionally), as well as discuss and try to understand this fascinating physical reaction.
>* Be respectful This should be a nice, peaceful and relaxing community. Hateful, demeaning, or inappropriate comments will not be tolerated.
>* No discussion of Content Creators' personal lives
What they do with their own time doesn't concern us. Anybody found giving out personal information will be banned.
> Do Not Downvote video submissions unless they are breaking the rules or spam. > Please report anything which violates these rules.*
>> Please note that filtering by flair is incompatible with dark mode.
> >1. No posts about Content Creators or their personal lives outside their videos.
>2. No Adult Content - direct those to /r/nsfwasmr. Adult content will be detected and removed automatically by Automoderator - intentionally evading this system is grounds for a ban.
>3. Use the tagging system appropriately - use one of the flair tags: [intentional], [unintentional], [discussion], [question], [request], [journalism], or [meta]. For video posts, additional tags are usually needed to specify the kind of trigger present. Ex : "(Name of Content Creator) Makeup Role Play [intentional] [soft speaking] [female] [personal attention]"
>4. No Images - Image posts will be removed by Automoderator. There is a Free-For-All Friday sticky thread every Friday in which anything goes, so submit images, memes, jokes etc. there.
>5. [Meta] posts should be discussions about this subreddit, its posts, moderation, rules etc. Incorrectly tagged [meta] posts will be deleted by the moderators - see the tagging system guidelines for details.
>6. No Music or Music Videos - direct your music videos to /r/Frisson or /r/ASMRmusic, and see the difference between Frisson and ASMR.
>7. Make the title descriptive - avoid words like "me" or "I" in the title. Poorly-worded or clickbaity titles may be removed at the discretion of the moderators.
>8. Content Creators are welcome to post their own material. Please do so in moderation and never repost the same video, otherwise we might consider it as spam. Read up on reddiquette and reddit's self-promotion guidelines to avoid getting shadowbanned site-wide by reddit admins.
>9. Use direct video links where possible (i.e. YouTube links) when linking to a video instead of linking to a webpage it is embedded in. Links to full channels or playlists aren't allowed.
>10. Search for the video you want to submit before you post to avoid reposts.
>11. Do not rehost videos, or ask for links to any deleted content. If the content creator has removed something, you should respect their right and wish to have it removed from the internet. Any users linking to or asking for deleted content will be banned without warning. This includes software to download/save videos, and also covers freebooted (stolen/reuploaded) content regardless of whether the original is deleted.
