Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a community that listens and watches videos on the internet that give them a feeling of relaxation and tingles. The feeling of tingles has been associated with specific triggers, or types of videos that people listen to such as whispering or personal attention. Within the last five years studies in ASMR have become a study of interest, but the community has been around since the early 2000s. The purpose of this demographic research is to investigate who the people are within this community, - the culture that surrounds the phenomenon of ASMR. This will help to understand the effects ASMR is having on people and continue to apply ASMR to education, therapy, and advertisements. I hypothesized that Caucasian boys from Europe and North America would be drawn to ASMR and would most likely listen to whisper videos alone, and while having little to no primary caregivers from the ages of 13 and above. The results are presented and future research is discussed.
