I Tried ASMR For The First Time

  • Published on Jan 28, 2019
  • And we're back! Here is a video we filmed at the end of last year that I'm excited to finally release! Watch the first half now and save the second half for nap time, lol.
    So I've seen a lot of non-ASMR youtubers release ASMR videos in the last few months, so I wanted to do a deep dive into what ASMR is and then try an ASMR segment of my own. Thankfully, I got Gibi of Gibi ASMR to help me figure out what it's all about. What did you think of my ASMR segment? Did you like the haircut roleplay? Did any part give you tingles?
    You can check out Gibi's channel here! thexvid.com/channel/uce6acmv3m35znlcf0jgnn7q
    TYPO: Also, 8:49 isn't Caroline ASMR it's Ting Ting ASMR! So sorry!

    PS - I know I am not wearing my ring in this video - most of it was filmed pre-proposal and for the rest of it I just forgot, lol! Nothing meant by it!

    I don't usually respond to asmr so I wasn't going to watch the asmr bit. I started it though and this, for whatever reason, calms me down so much that I fell asleep. Thank you for this.

  • Enchanted Generation

    Does anyone else think that Saf is REALLY good at ASMR for some weird reason? Like if I did not know who she was I would have thought her whole TheXvid was ASMR.
    P.s love you Saf!

  • Nicole Bragg

    I always understood the general concept of ASMR (as a soft sounds relaxation sort of thing) but I've never seen anyone actually explain it or known what it stands for or even that there were different types of ASMR videos! Thank you so much for doing the research and explaining it in depth, this might actually be a great new find for me to try out.
    I'm also 100% in your camp in the "Dry vs. Wet sounds". I love love love the sound off the James Charles Palette & the stroking of books, the make up brushes etc. Licking sounds?! I'd get way too grossed out lol

    I just laughed so hard when Tyler said,” It’s like skating through grass.” That honestly sound like something my cousin, or best friend, would say to me.

  • piemaker93
    piemaker93 2 days ago

    I loved this so much! While I was definitely triggered and I agree with Safiya about dry sounds; I think my favorite part (besides her commentary) was definitely all the facial expressions! Such a fun ASMR experience 😄😌 I’d definitely watch more

    Don’t talk a lot when you make asmr videos, some people get distracted. (Disclaimer = this is not a hate comment, I love safiyahs videos and content, it’s just a suggestion)

  • Emily Short

    I liked hearing the science behind this but the tingling sensations just make me cringe and feel uncomfortable so I'm not really a fan of ASMR. Also people eating and breathing to loudly drives me crazy. I think the only version of this type of thing I like is people typing on a keyboard with fake nails on, something about that is really satisfying.

  • Aaris Howton
    Aaris Howton 3 days ago

    I have not made it to the ASMR portion of the video, but I believe I'm through the majority of the sciencey bit, and based on my lifelong reactions to the sound of someone brushing eraser bits off of paper, rubbing their hand against carpet or rough fabric, rubbing hands together, and silverware clinking, I think I will absolutely hate it.
    EDIT: I have made it to the ASMR and as I more specifically expected, I like some of it and hate some of it. I have learned that I specifically hate stroking sounds of any kind. Whispering is enjoyable. I guess as to my hatred of silverware, remotely high-pitched sounds are also a no-go.

    Refused to watch asmr because I thought tingles were bad. Honestly, the first half opened my eyes. and the second half has me addicted to asmr

    +safnygaard *Those twin RØDE® condensers pick up nicely.* I considered shooting an experimental vid on how quiet a pair of microphones could pick up clearly. My ASUS® CM1630-06 could pick up full stereo from a SONY® singstar® Microphone Kit for PlayStation® 2-up; but one of the cardioid condensers broke before I could start taping. So much for _that_ experiment! :-D Perhaps a pair of shotgun condensers to minimize the noise from the CM1630's fans and Antec® PSU....

    I'm a girl and Safiya is so cute omg, I love her. I usually hate asmr sounds. I guess I enjoyed safiya's asmr so much because the sounds she made weren't aggressive and because she was cute, funny and calming, I felt kind of like a maternal feel from her 😆 I think she would be a great mum.
