The first time I started getting into videos properly, I was in a pretty bad place. My amygdala was locked into a constant fight-or-flight and I was terrified the ASMRtist would do something horrible and mess me up just when I was relaxed and most vulnerable.

The fact that every ASMRtist I follow and watch places such a strong emphasis on consent in the script of their videos, never fails to impress.
