ASMR! OMG! A Conversation with Heather Feather
Those prone to falling down the Reddit and YouTube rabbit holes have probably found themselves on at least one occasion watching someone whisper hypnotically at a webcam while tapping perfectly manicured nails on a table or grinding salt with a mortar and pestle. Or perhaps it was a cranial nerve examination role play, or a simulated space travel agency, or someone crinkling bags of noodles. For those who know the delightful tingling sensation that has come to be known as ASMR — Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response — these videos are a revelation. To everyone else, they can come across a little, well, creepy and confusing. Have no fear, we’re here to shed some light on this happy little corner of the internet.
Corrigan Vaughan sits down with ASMRtist and geek goddess Heather Feather to discuss everything from what ASMR is (don’t worry, Grandma, it’s not the porn), to fielding requests from fetish communities, to Heather’s secret favorite activity. For anyone who’s ever wanted to know more about ASMR or about one of its top content creators, here’s your chance.
PLUS, Heather provides an exclusive binaural whisper/soft-spoken video just for the Electric Feast!
