Will you get into this new sex trend?
An unexpected sex trend has popped on YouTube of all places, with hordes of people tuning in to get their fix of this obscure trend.
The main difference with this trend is there is no nudity, or anything untoward really. It’s simply a woman in front of a camera whispering into the camera while rustling say a packet of lollies and crackling it for avid listeners.
What the? We hear you ask, but there are millions of men and women tuning into these videos, dubbed whisper porn, who claim to get incredible brain orgasms from watching.
The trend’s scientific name is Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR), which is described as the tingling feeling on the scalp, neck and spine in reaction to gentle sounds.
If you’re wondering what type of sounds illicit this response, think running water or the crinkling of a plastic packet.
People who can’t get enough of whisper porn are divided into those who watch it to relax and zone out, sometimes even help with sleep, and others who get a bit, well, excited by it.
Ben* tells The Sun UK that he finds it (whisper porn) “hot as hell”.
Despite various reasons for building a playlist of whisper porn, we can’t ignore its widespread popularity. Ranking as the fifth most popular YouTube search term, there are over 13 million ASMR videos on the platform.
One thing’s for sure, whisper porn seems like it’s here to stay.
