Then begins the whispering voice of an English girl named WhisperingLife and with it the very first ASMR video. Since this time the feeling brought on by the whispering has been given its name as ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) and Whisperers have been named ASMRtists. Other terms are Sleep Whisperer or just ASMR Content Creator.
An ASMRtist is someone who works to create the ASMR tingles in another. This is mostly in the form of a YouTube video where the artist will use sounds, soft speaking, whispering, guided visualisation and more to induce tingles in the viewer. It can also be induced in person.
