ASMR, or autonomous sensory meridian response, has exploded in popularity on YouTube over the last few years.

Many people have felt the euphoric tingles just by listening to certain sounds since they were children, but it was only in 2010 when cybersecurity expert Jennifer Allen gave the sensation a name.

The ASMR experience is different for everyone, but it typically starts as tingles on the scalp and back of the head. Then it moves down to the shoulders and lower back. Sometimes, the tingles also reach your arms and legs.

Over the last few years, several YouTube video creators, or ASMRtists, have cropped up offering a huge array of ASMR videos with a variety of triggers.

Whether you find yourself enjoying the whispers of a soft voice into your ears, being given close personal attention by a hairstylist or spa therapist, or listening to the crisp sounds of tapping, scratching, and crinkling all sorts of objects, you will find something to your liking.

Below is a list of the 15 most popular ASMR videos on YouTube in 2020.

The triggers include a variety of mouth noises, such as kissing, lip-smacking, and chowing down on a fluffy chocolate muffin. You’ll also hear Pelagea tapping her long nails on a variety of objects, such as plastic frogs and a wooden vase.

Some viewers find that this video can get a little risque, which can be distracting. The solution is simply to put the phone down, close your eyes, and listen.
