Sexy A to Z – A

I saw a similar A-Z topic on someone else’s blog a while ago and unfortunately cannot remember who it was, but I thought, “what a great idea!”  They shared something regarding sex, bdsm and/or kink each day starting with A for the first day and ending in Z the very last day of this sharing.

Now I will be sharing something each day covering the alphabet until I reach Z! If you have anything to add or have something else in that alphabet letter to share, please do so in the comments below.

Here we go!

A:

Auralism: a sexual fetish defined as sexual arousal or excitement caused by sound, to be compared with voyeurism. This sound might be music, a voice, the actual sounds of sex itself, or other sounds, and may include enjoyment from listening to others having sex. (From the Urban Dictionary)

This is a very interesting topic and one I had discussed a few months ago with a few peeps.  There is a recent finding, or understanding in the last few years, where whispering and brain tingles trigger that aural fetish.

It is called ASMR and the following are some definitions to help us understand:

  • Google:

 “a feeling of well-being combined with a tingling sensation in the scalp and down the back of the neck, as experienced by some people in response to a specific gentle stimulus, often a particular sound.”

“ASMR-autonomous sensory meridian response – (also called brain-gasms) is triggered by things like whispering voices, paper tearing, and scalp massage”

  • Merriam-Webster:

Definition — autonomous sensory meridian response

What is ASMR? It is an acronym for “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response” (which is not officially classified as a condition by the sciences) that is first bandied about on the internet around the close of the first decade of the 2000s. For the most part, the words making up the name are self-explanatory, but you might be wondering about meridian. Meridian generally refers to a high point in excitement, but technically it refers to any of the pathways along which the body’s vital energy flows according to the theory behind acupuncture. Autonomous also has specialized meaning: it can refer to involuntary physiological responses or to the autonomic nervous system, which autonomously regulates bodily functions, including sexual arousal. ASMR, however, is a nonsexual response. According to the modest ones who answered questionnaires on the topic, it is simply a tingling feeling that starts at the top of the head and trickles downward—and is characteristically triggered by a person softly whispering into a camera and making random hand movements along objects.

Other names for ASMR include “head/brain tingles,” “brain orgasm” (or “braingasms”), and “whisper porn” (despite it being nonsexual), and the aftereffect of the tingling sensation is relaxation and contentment, which makes it therapeutic for depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

Podcast Link about ASMR:

The Ersties Podcast talks about it here.

One portion discussed on the podcast is about when Karuna Satori was watching a porn video, and there is a couple participating in a massage with those sounds before it goes into the sex part.  She said she found later that the sounds on the video were described as they were the same as ASMR, found that this helped her in that time of her life with mental health, and later went into recording these ASMR sounds herself.

They also talk to Dr. Craig Richard throughout the podcast. He talks about what the response says about your personality and whether it is or isn’t sexual.  Also about how it is understandable how the ASMR has been brought into the sexual atmosphere, bringing a tool of greater intimacy and well-being to partners when being used in a sexual moment.  Communicating to the other person that they are safe and you care for them.

Very interesting!!

Of course there are other sounds that arouse a person sexually, such as moaning, dirty talk, a particular song that has a trigger, and quite possibly other sounds you never thought would be a trigger. Who knows, but the one being aroused.  😉

So, that is my Letter A in my Sexy A to Z  for Day 1!

See you tomorrow for Day 2 and the Letter B. 🙂
