What is Whispering ASMR?
About Whispering ASMR
Whispering ASMR videos are aimed towards creating a relaxed frame of mind for those watching and listening and often as a way to help resolve sleep issues.

Whisper ASMR Triggers
Typical triggers from ASMR Whispering videos include:
Oils on skin
ASMR Whisper Styles
Role Play Whispers
Role play is used a lot on ASMR and whispering as part of that role play is often featured.
Medical role play with whispering is super popular. Often a consultation or assessment is the main focus of the role play. This will usually be followed by face exams, ear, nose, throat and eye assessments and final body checks.
Other role play types are Spa days, airport checks, student nurse, clothes fitting, hair dressers, measuring and travel agents.
A lot of the whisper videos are aimed at getting you to sleep. And the techniques used to delivery does vary quite a lot.
For example there are a number of ‘sleep’ videos which incorporate make overs, hair care, skin care, personal attention and grooming. While others are more aurally inclined with focus on soft whispering, breathing and mouth sounds.
And some mix up the library style with soft whispering to help you sleep.
Ear to Ear Whispers
The Ear to Ear style of video is very focussed on mouth sounds, inaudible sounds and whispering. Kisses are also very popular and can be used alongside role play characterisation.
Often moving between two microphones to generate the binaural 3D-surround sounds to give you the feeling of being really close to the ASMR artist.
You get a much better effect if you use good quality headphones to enhance the sound and block out external noises.
Getting people to relax and sleep easily is one of the main aims of ear to ear ASMR.
Spa treatments are of course very relaxing. So add in some whispering, a point of view angle. Or a very personal ‘one on one’ focus and you will get some great ASMR triggers.
These videos can be simple massages, or skin care routines right through to full on pampering including skin examinations, pampering, hand movements, water spray sounds and cleansing.
And then there are the applying serums and creams, face masks and dry brushing. So many triggers!
This is a bit of a no brainer. Remembering how I used to fall asleep when being read to as a kid. And how I now fall asleep when reading, pretty much anywhere! So relaxing!
The styles vary from straight reading of book text albeit whispering. And there are quite a lot of unintelligible and barely audible readings given.
There is also, at a slight tangent, palm reading and Tarot card readings as well.
Combine this with some of the Library styles, page turning, flipping and smoothing and you have some great ASMR triggers.
Mouth Sounds Whispers
A bit like inaudible and unintelligible sounds, and often with hand movements and ear to ear audio mouth sounds are super popular. Unless you have Misophonia, in which case avoid mouth sounds ASMR!
It’s a it hard to describe but think of softly spoken ‘tk’, ‘sk’, ‘shk’ if that makes any sense! And often used are spoolie mouth sounds.
Made to help you relax and sleep. Occasionally the mouth sounds are enhanced with echo and delay.
The very nature of a library is of course very quiet. So inevitably this setting is perfect for whispering videos! Library ASMR is often accompanied by great triggers such as page flipping, stamping, typing, hand movements, stickers and crinkling.
The boyfriend whispering is, like many of these whispering videos, as an aid to getting you to sleep. Used alongside with role play cuddles, deep breathing and often just whispering sweet nothings in your ‘ear’. Small talk, low voice and whispered conversation is quite common.
It can be just audio as well as visual to help relax and calm you down.
Make up Whispers
The make up videos tend to be broken down into ‘tutorials‘ and ‘role play‘.
And these sessions can be hands and with close personal attention. So lots of brushing and mouth sounds as the make up is applied. So using foundation, blender, concealer, blush, powder, mascara and lip gloss.
And lots of face touching, depending on how the make up session is run.
There is also tapping as make up bags, tubes and boxes are used. All good ASMR!
Ramble is exactly what it sounds like where the ASMR artist just rambles on about any topics that they want to discuss.
These tend to be done in a very soft voice or whisper, slowly talking and generally just a bit of a chit chat.

The Inaudible or Unintelligible is kind of hard to describe! Basically this is often ear to ear type sounds. But instead of spoken words there are a lot of mouth sounds and clicks. So you can’t make out what is being said. All done with a quiet voice or whispering.
There are often, as video is a visual medium, some really good hand movements as well as tapping.
The very personal nature of a doctor and patient clinical assessment delivers some great ASMR. Usually conducted in a quiet room, the whispering and inaudible whispering are often part of the Medical whispering ASMR role play.
Foreign Language Whispers
Unless you speak multiple languages this is a bit like unintelligible ASMR. It is sometimes just talking or often reading from a book. Often ear to ear for those really defined sounds.
Many languages are covered including English, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Italian, Slovak, Dutch, Swedish and many more.
