ASMR porn refers to porn that includes an element of autonomous sensory meridian response, a pleasurable sensation described as "brain tingling" or a "brain-gasm" that's typically triggered by gentle sounds such as whispers, crackles, popping, tapping, some types of music and even personal attention - or the sensation of it.

In ASMR porn, erotic content is combined with some elements of typical ASMR tracks or video, including soft whispering and, most commonly, roleplay and JOI, or jerk-off instructions. It also centers around sounds such as licking, sucking and stroking.

According to Pornhub Insights, searches related to ASMR porn have continued to grow year over year since 2016.

Scientific research around ASMR is still limited, but a 2018 study found evidence that ASMR did promote pleasant feelings and reduced unpleasant ones. According to The Origin Theory of ASMR, ASMR can cause the release of chemicals such as serotonin, oxytocin and dopamine, the same chemicals released during sexual arousal.

More About ASMR Porn

In 2016, Google's Consumer Insights blog declared ASMR a "massive and growing" trend on the search engine, as well as on YouTube. As a term, ASMR was coined in 2010 by Jennifer Allen, a person who was looking to describe a sensation she experienced. She also created a Facebook group in an attempt to connect with others who experienced the pleasurable brain tingles she did. The creation of the terminology is believed to have helped kickstart this genre's emergence on the internet as well as its ability to connect with those who already enjoyed the experience - or were interested in giving it a try.

Many online and cultural trends tend to find their way into pornography (or become "pornified"). However, ASMR porn provides a more clear fit than most. While ASMR isn't inherently sexual, many of the tracks and videos do have a sense of intimacy about them, and have been compared to the whispering of phone sex operators or even to pillow talk.

In pornography, ASMR also offers something unique in that it aims to create a physical sensation, not just arouse viewers with explicit imagery. It may also create a greater sense of connection and intimacy with performers, an element that may also be lacking in much of mainstream pornography. The first mainstream porn film centered around ASMR was released by Erika Lust in 2021. ASMR may also be present in other erotic content, such as audio erotica.

According to Pornhub, some of the searches filed under ASMR include:

ASMR JOI, or jerkoff instruction, is the clear winner of the group. It combines the soft, intimate whispers of typical ASMR with masturbation instruction, creating a sexy experience that also creates a feeling of intimacy for the viewer.
