Rude ASMR Roleplays
Mean or bitchy or rude ASMR roleplays emerged overnight and I’ve been pretty torn on the trend.
When I’ve watched them (and trust me, I’ve watched a few) I never really find them too relaxing. Either I’m too amused to the point of laughter or I’m taken aback and don’t really know what to think. I keep trying to think of a good comparison but I haven’t had such luck. It’s strange – because I associate ASMR with feelings of being nurtured, comfort, softness. So when an ASMRtist starts acting rude in a roleplay I always think, “This is ASMR?!”
I made an unintentional “Bitchy” roleplay video that you can watch here. I only put the word “bitchy” in the title because I guess I came off as a rude best friend in the beginning of the video. Since its upload and since changing the title, people have now been telling me that I’m not being rude enough! #fail
Because, as most people who watch ASMR videos have come to realize, ASMR is not all just whispering or speaking softly. One’s demeanor, one’s atmosphere, one’s tone of voice and one’s presentation are all vital components of ASMR.
When I personally go to watch an ASMR video I want to feel pampered, I want to feel loved (as cheesy as that sounds) and comfortable. For ASMR purposes, in my opinion, someone being rude and throwing the F-bomb around is not going to make me feel pampered, loved or comfortable.
Disagree with me all you want – PLEASE tell me how you feel in the comments but this is how I feel. I usually watch those types of videos solely for entertainment purposes but if I wanna fall asleep in 5 minutes “bitchy” or “mean” ASMR videos are ones I tend to steer clear from.
The first one I watched was Katherine Clark’s “Jealous friend makeover” video. To date, it’s one of my favorite videos because that girl is just so good at ASMR, but upon watching it for the first time, I was taken aback and then amused. I’ve watched it so many times that I know exactly when she’s going to make those snide remarks that I either mute it during those parts or skip over it. One that I thought was incredibly entertaining however, is KaySMR’s Bitchy Friend Does Your Makeup video. She slayed it!
But overall… I dunno, they’re just funny to me. Plain and simple. Will I watch them for entertainment? Heck yeah, I love watching people get creative. Will I watch them for tingles or to relax/fall asleep? Nope.
But hey, that’s just me. Now I wanna hear what you think!
