Here’s the WIKI definition: “Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is an experience characterised by sensations of head tingling affiliated with sound triggers. ASMR signifies the subjective experience of “low-grade euphoria” characterised by “a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin.” It is most commonly triggered by specific acoustic, visual and digital media stimuli”.
Piper tries to make you feel these so called tingles, can you sense something?
As far as I can tell, this is a real thing, and Wired seems to agree… It’s called Porn for the Blind and it’s a site where people can share recorded descriptions of porn for blind (and non-blind) consumers alike. It’s entirely amateur and it’s free as a public service of sorts. The vast majority of the sites on there aren’t my cup of tea, but it certainly is an interesting concept.
One thing that’s missing is eroticism in the voice, at least from the samples I’ve heard. This is part of why I’m reticent to do voiceovers in my videos… I don’t want to fake a sensual tone and come off as forced. Part of what’s nice about this is that it’s really just people who are interested and enthusiastic about porn, so they’re sharing their favourite content and explaining it in their own words.
This made me wonder: if you were attempting to describe The Art of Blowjob to someone, what would you say? How would you contextualize it to someone who has maybe never been able to see? What kinds of descriptors would you use? I’m honestly not totally sure myself, but I think it’ll be fun to brainstorm together. Who knows? Maybe one of you will be moved to describe a video and put it up there for others to enjoy. If you do, let me know!
I’m happy to present to you this week’s update, which is called Red Chair Blowjob. The title is pretty self-explanatory, and you might think that this is a fairly standard blowjob video, right? I’m naked (which is a little out of the ordinary for the site, but not unheard of) and we’re relaxing in our apartment and enjoying a nice sensual blowjob… That’s all there is… Or so it seems.
Well, as I’ve obviously hinted at, there is more to this video than meets the eye. Take a listen, and you’ll hear what might be a familiar voice. You remember the photo I posted of myself playing the guitar and singing into my lovely bluebird microphone? This video is one of the results of the fruit of my labour. It’s called Black Sun Falls. I really hope you enjoy my voice, my playing and my song.
As you know, you can view the trailer on the site, but make sure to check out the full video and that way you can hear the full song and see all the action. I’d love to hear your feedback, both about the video and about the music! Since we take so much of our sensuality from the music, it only makes sense that I try to have some of my personal sound in the videos from time to time…
