ASMR For Men
Morning Brew produces a podcast, and it’s the only podcast I listen to consistently. For some I recommend the Freakanomics Podcast. Also, are you really an American if you’ve not heard at least one episode of JRE? However Business Casual provides me with all the financial information I need to proceed with my life.
Today, we are going to talk about selling things to people that are emotionally susceptible to making bad decisions. I think it goes without saying that that attitude has degraded the American Economy quite severely, specifically since Reaganomics.
Yesterday I wrote an article having to do with the sexualization of ASMR, and I used Karuna Satori as my front-and-forward example of how ASMR and Sex can be congruent in a safe and exploratory manner [KS is doing it better than anyone, but I still think it could be done better]. There are a great many asmrtists using sex to sell their products. Although they are allowed to do that [and in fact, I encourage people to get their money anyway they can], I also believe that with great power comes great responsibility. My power comes from that I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict that has been revived by narcan…and that was only the first time I kicked the devil’s ass! I’ve got other superpowers too.
This morning I woke up feeling quite sad. Why? There are many contributing factors, including that it’s cold and gloomy outside. However, I am confident that happiness is en route for me, and so I just keep on chuggin like ole Thomas.
Did I watch any ASMR this morning to help me feel better? No. The modern world of ASMR can make me quite sad. I’m a single guy, and I’m a single guy gets especially lonely. Can you guess what’s coming next? Most people are not as emotionally confident as me, but I promise, if you stick with reading this blog everyday, you will gain emotional confidence. I wouldn’t let you miss out on the emotional revolution! and I will not let you fail.
Can I say the same about the many beautiful women that also happen to be asmrtists? Hell-to-the-no. They might let you fail; I don’t know them personally. I don’t think KS or Frivvay would let you fail, but to some asmrtists, you are simply a number.
Many people are going to read this and think I am telling women what they can do with their bodies, but that would simply be an emotional reaction to a logical argument. On the contrary, I am recommending to men that they don’t take part in stimuli which feel good in the short term, but harm them in the long run. It’s easy to watch a 45 minute asmr video where a cute girl gives you personal attention, but how is that affecting your psyche the rest of the day? You might begin to feel that all women should give you that much attention. I’m here to tell you: no one is giving you for free. You either gotta trade a piece of your wallet, or a piece of your soul.
My friend John wrote the blog at eatlettershitwords. Do you know what is significant about his story? He’s dead. He killed himself, which is a topic I think most people would rather avoid. Most people would rather…handout with a beautiful women? I know I would. I would definitely rather be hanging out with a beautiful woman than writing this blog post right now. Those feelings ebb and flow.
I think John could have combated his PTSD with ASMR quite strongly, however, I don’t think he would have found solace in the personal attention ASMR however, because it’s usually fake, and John was emotionally woke.
People like John are the ones who will be helped most by this blog. John was also a raging alcoholic at the end of his life. He was not ashamed.
So! I had to avoid social media this morning because I just can’t look at all those beautiful women, and the more naked they are, the alone they make me feel.
Gentleman, if you’re reading this, remember to maintain vigilance in regards to your emotional stability. Girls just want to have fun! And although it is your duty as a man to control your emotions and sentiment towards women, I am also going to tell you that it’s not all butterflies and rainbows.
One time, my friend, that’s a girl, got beat up by a guy she used to date. She told me that she might have gotten raped; she was knocked out for quite some time. I felt terribly conflicted about my logical conclusion on the matter. Obviously I was more upset with the male, but I couldn’t help but believe her situation to be avoidable and predictable.
I’m writing this for men.
Women, you’ve just gotta trust my method of educating.
So my friend hungout with a guy that we both knew was head-over-heels in love with her, and in fact, they had previously dated. On the night she attended a concert with him, she did not want to be anything more than friends, and that’s totally her right, to not allow sexual conduct…but when I listened to her story, I got upset and confused.
For some men, 5 seconds of imposing their will on a women, especially if they feel belittled, is a worthy trade for a lifetime in prison. [feelings are in the eye of the beholder]
If you do not innately understand the context above, I do not know how to explain it to you, except by saying that that feeling is exactly how I felt about alcohol for a long time. Five minutes of being drunk was better than a lifetime of sobriety, and not a soul could convince me otherwise. I had to convince myself.
Men and women are different. I don’t know what it’s like to be a women, obviously, and I only know what it’s like to be a man. All humans get emotionally weak sometimes, and it only takes 5 seconds to do something you will regret forever [I usually reserve that phrase to represent suicide, but in this case, it is the act of raping someone].
Rape rape rape. It’s real! It’s something that once we rid from this earth, the world will be a significantly better place.
Yesterday I watching a TV show on Investigation Discovery about a guy who shot a girl at the mall. They worked together, and he ended up killing her because she didn’t take kindly to his sexual advances. No one could have assumed he was going to turn from the creepy type to the killer type, and from what I understood of the TV show, all she really could have done to prevent her inevitable death was quit her job, and leave her city; the guy was seriously stalking her.
Can you tell yet, that this article is not written for women, and instead written for men?
When I began this article, I thought I might site certain asmrtists. Call them out for using their beautiful bodies to emotionally take advantage of people. Obviously however, that is not how to combat the free market.
If you are a man, and you find yourself watching “sexy” asmrtists a lot, I would encourage you to look deep down inside yourself, and determine if your choice in ASMR is actually making you happy. Hawking forbid you ended up losing control of your emotions because you did what felt good, and then when you realize you’re unhappy you over compensate your actions to try and make up for lost time.
It’s like when someone quits drinking and then they suddenly find god and become a raw vegan. That’s called: jumping from one unmanageable situation to another.
So I will never tell these asmrtists to stop showing off their bodies, and I especially wouldn’t tell them to stop getting their money. But I would ask you, the viewer, to exercise caution and make sure you are not satisfying your immediate needs while sacrificing your long term goals.
I am fully prepared to defend this piece of writing.

Everyday Sobriety Advice
I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict, but I am not a qualified addiction counselor. To help other alcoholics/addicts achieve sobriety, I have created the mantra’s below. Although I call them “steps,” I believe that all four mantra’s should be recited in concurrence.
When the urge to drink alcohol or use drugs comes upon you, I suggest reciting these four steps, and then implementing an activity to “kill time” until your urge to use drugs/alcohol is less intense. I suggest you use ASMR videos to “kill time”
Good luck, My Friend
Below are the steps of admittance required for using The ASMR.Community Sobriety Program [ACSP] successfully.
Step 1: “Sobriety is a choice, and it is up to me to make the right choice.”
Step 2: “Not everybody will be able to achieve sobriety, but that knowledge does not prevent my success regarding sobriety.”
Step 3: “The urge to imbibe (substances that I know will prevent my success) is finite. Sometimes the urge will exist, sometimes the urge will not exist.”
Step 4: “Sobriety is not the same for everyone. Success is.”
I believe the steps I listed above are a complete, non-exclusionary list of all mental admissions needed to achieve your goals regarding sobriety.
Everybody’s definition of sobriety is different, but everybody’s definition of success is the same.

Don’t underestimate the power of Yoga! Specifically Yoga With Adriene. My shoulder is broken, and so you can do some Yoga for me too. I really wish I could…
If you are looking or more information about ASMR, I’ve found the best place to learn about the subject is ASMR University. Their information is accurate [to the best of my knowledge], and plentiful. I mostly work with the application of ASMR, but there is a whole lot more to ASMR than using it to gain sobriety or fall asleep, including the history and the science of it.
