Funnily enough, the old pubescent warning of ‘If you keep playing with it, you’ll go blind’ is probably more appropriate to ASMR.

Here’s the deal with ASMR — it is not sexual but it is not not sexual. After a sparkle session, I feel relaxed. Imagine you could fit a run, a massage, and a meditation session into fifteen minutes, leaving you with a formidable afterglow. You feel ready to roll through the day or even roll in the hay.
