Excluding jam bands, when is the last time you experienced an ASMR, or rather Auto-Sensory Meridian (aka Orgasm) Response, to a particular band's music? Name the song or the moment it occured.
My answer: I was driving to St. Louis the first time I listened to Rosetta Stoned
by Tool. I was so blown away by the song that I set it on repeat and listened to the song for 3 straight hours, the entire time experiencing intense ASMR. ASMR (Auto-Sensory Meridian Response)
Some alternative names for ASMR in these discussion groups included attention induced head orgasm, attention induced euphoria, and attention induced observant euphoria. Other phrases to describe the sensation refer to it as a "brain orgasm", "brain massage", "head tingle", "brain tingles", "head orgasm", "spine tingle", and "braingasm".
A man stated that he experiences ASMR and included a discussion of the phenomenon and what triggered it for him; the term "head orgasm" was used throughout this broadcast. A podcast in The McGill Daily mentions the high prevalence of ASMR videos on YouTube and features different people describing their personal experiences of the feeling. Both media discussions discussed whether ASMR is a sexual response and stated that those who experience the phenomenon argue that ASMR is not associated with sexual arousal but instead is described as calming or relaxing.
