Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. Please don't stop reading, this is much more interesting than it sounds.
Quite the bees knees these days, it appears. I've had this affliction, though that's not really a fitting word for it, since I was a teenager. I remember watching my friend flicking through a thick glossy Grattan catalogue, her her shiny red nails scraping the pages, occassionally tapping a particular dress she liked. I seemed to drift off into a pleasant tingly stupor that started at the base of my skull down to my shoulders, to be unceremoniously shouted at by my friend to 'wake up dreamer '
Another trigger was an old Greek lady I used to visit who spoke heavily accented English with a pronounced lisp, every so often gently smacking her lips together; oh bliss.
I've read this state of relaxation one succumbs to on these occasions is very beneficial to one's well being.
Ok, I've 'fessed up ', here's hoping many more of you encounter ASMR in your lives, otherwise one very embarrassed snagglepuss is exiting stage right.
