ASMR: A Guide to Whisper Porn

Heard about ‘whisper porn’ and wondered what the hell it is?

Also known as ASMR, whisper porn is about provoking a ‘braingasm’; that satisfying tingling sensation you get across your scalp or at the base of your neck when someone whispers close to your ear. Though not strictly speaking ‘porn’ on its own, this search term is trending across tube hosting sites like Pornhub, XVideos and XHamster. ASMR content varies from audio clips designed to help you sleep to videos with provide jerk off instructions. It’s a broad market with an even broader appeal, but what is it all about?

In this guide, we take a closer look at exactly what whisper porn is and why it’s become so popular. We also take a look at the latest stats about ASMR porn trends plus give you some ideas about where to find whisper porn to try it for yourself.

What is ASMR (or Whisper) Porn?

ASMR, or Autonomous-Sensory Median Response, is basically the scientific term for that tingling sensation that occurs at the nape of our necks, down the spine and across our scalp. It is often accompanied by a strong sense of well-being and may be followed with an involuntary shiver, goosebumps and, for some, an orgasmic sensation.

ASMR can be triggered in a number of ways in our every-day lives for a variety of reasons including the sound of scratching, tapping and soft murmuring. It can also be evoked via scalp massage or through some of the following:

  • Hair brushing
  • Ear brushing
  • Scratching
  • Sounds of water
  • Sounds of grains of rice being poured (or a rain stick)
  • Soap being cut

Everyone is different but ASMR is generally found to be stimulated best via the sound of whispering voices, hence the name ‘Whisper Porn’.

It’s true that not everybody is affected by ASMR in the same way and, whilst the sound of whispering at close proximity might send plenty of people into a state of bliss, for others it’s just plain annoying. What is true is that, for some people, the ASMR phenomenon produces a kind of orgasm which is one of the reasons ASMR videos have been banned in China….too vulgar and pornographic, apparently.

Not strictly speaking a genre of porn, many mainstream vloggers are producing this kind of content to prompt ASMR and to produce that tingling sensation for reasons other than for sexual stimulus In fact, it is estimated that only around 5% of those people searching for ASMR content are doing so for reasons of an erotic nature. Other people enjoy the sensations that these clips produce in order to aid sleep, relieve anxiety or even to improve mood and alleviate pain.

However, ASMR has gone explicitly adult in recent years with more and more of these recordings featuring XXX sounds. From simulating the sound of a blowjob or penetration to heavy breathing and dirty talk, this kind of whisper porn perfectly captures the audio needed to bring listeners to climax.

So, is there any science behind these head orgasms?

In 2018, the University of Sheffield became the first academic institute to study the effects of ASMR and found that people who reported being susceptible to the phenomenon experienced:

  • Reduced heart rates.
  • Increased positive emotions.
  • Greater social connection.
  • Heightened state of relaxation.

The study also found that people who experienced ASMR, vs those who did not, reported greater levels of both excitement and calmness plus decreased levels of sadness and stress.

There is no evidence yet as to exactly why this is nor why not everyone experiences these tingling braingasms.

Whisper Porn in Mainstream Pornography

Before we even look at the main porn platforms, it is worth pointing out that on YouTube alone there are more than 13 million ASMR videos!

According to data collected from Google Trends, the search term ‘ASMR porn’ has been growing in popularity over the last five years, reaching peak levels in late 2018 to June 2019. The same set of data reveals that the term is most popular in Finland, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom and New Zealand. By contrast, the term ‘whisper porn’ is most popular in India, United States, United Kingdom and Mexico.

In terms of the content available on platforms like Pornhub, XVideos and YouPorn, clips range from vloggers who simply whisper jerk off instructions (JOI) to standard erotica and hardcore that simply features enhanced audio. For instance, one video of a woman performing an edging blowjob is marked up for ASMR fans simply because the microphone is close enough to the action that it picks up every slurp, drip and lick. This means the clip can be enjoyed just as much with your eyes open or your eyes closed.

By and large, the majority of clips on the tube hosting sites double up as being both visually exciting as well as audibly. But, as far as the main studios are concerned, there is no output yet specifically dedicated to this niche area of porn.

Stats on Whisper Porn

ASMR was reported by Pornhub to be in the top ten trending searches for women during 2018 with demand for this kind of content up 48% vs 2017 with their female audiences. According to their most recent ‘Year in Review’ report, the term was most popular in the 18-24 year-old age range.

ASMR was reportedly growing in demand across the Pornhub platform in Canada (up 74%) and Brazil (up 133% and the 10th most searched for term in the country). Of course, other countries are getting in on the act too with ASMR also being searched widely across Asia, Europe and North/South America.

In an earlier report published in 2016, Pornhub reported that for the period August 2014 to January 2016, interest in ASMR across their site had risen by 1,085%. The Insights team were curious about what kind of content people who were interested in ASMR were looking for and they ran two sets of data analysis; what search terms were being used in combination with ‘ASMR’ and what terms were being searched immediately before ‘ASMR’:

Where To Find Whisper Porn

The thing to remember about whisper porn is that there is a huge spectrum of audio clips available and not all are adult in content whilst some may well be xxx but not ASMR. Plenty of files and videos are tagged as being ASMR but which simply contain the sounds of sex, or audio porn.

All of the main tube hosting sites have some content that has been tagged with ‘ASMR’ or ‘whisper porn’ so finding it isn’t difficult.

A quick search on Pornhub reveals over 1400 clips for ‘whisper porn’ and 2500+ videos tagged with ‘ASMR’.

However, the vast majority of ASMR content is not strictly produced for ‘porn’ purposes with the most popular ASMR vloggers being readily available on YouTube. These are just a handful of the most frequently visited channels:

  • ASMRrequests
  • Cosmic Tingles
  • Ephemeral Rift
  • GentleWhispering
  • MassageASMR
  • ASMRDarling

It will come as no surprise to learn that there are lots of Reddit groups that offer some great conversational spaces for ASMR aficionados. Most are pretty generalized in terms of content and cover ASMR in general as well as adult content. These are just a few that you can find on this platform:

  • ASMR – General Group with 184k members.
  • NSFW ASMR – Adult whisper porn content
  • ASMR Porn – Small group of around 1.1k
  • Gone Wild Audio – Amateur audio porn (not strictly speaking ASMR but with some crossover) where members submit recordings of themselves – 290k members
  • Pillow Talk Audio – Vanilla and erotic audio recordings – 26.6k members

ASMR aficionados can also find like-minded souls in what has become known as the ‘Tingle Community’. With a selection of specialist websites and apps offering content specifically designed to induce ASMR, the following websites should offer a nice starting point for anyone who is new to the world of whisper porn:

Lastly, you can also find some interesting clips and playlists on the popular audio streaming service, Spotify. Most of these clips have been created for reasons other than to appeal to the ‘porn’ genre but can (apparently) still produce a braingasm in those who are susceptible to this kind of stimulus. They are more diverse and mundane than those clips you will find on the porn tube sites. It just may be that some people prefer to get off on the sound of zippers being undone or matches being lit than those who want to be whispered to explicitly.
