Watching This Guy Touch His Nutsack For An Hour Is Weirdly Soothing


Have you heard of ASMR? Standing for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, it’s an unusual and still-unexplained brain condition that basically gives feelings of relaxation and pleasure when people with it are exposed to certain stimuli – often people talking softly or certain kinds of sounds. There’s a whole cottage industry on YouTube of people making videos that stimulate that response, but this might be the strangest one we’ve seen. Iggy Manley spends a solid hour with a burlap nutsack (full of peanuts) carefully touching, scratching and manipulating it and the nuts inside while keeping up a calm, soothing ASMR narration. So what do you think? Did it give you a weird, pleasurable tingling feeling or just make you thirsty?
