ASMR is the astonishing tingling sensation felt all over the body in response to certain high definition sounds, crackling, whispering, brushing of fingers across fabrics and the tapping of fingernails. It’s shiveringly wonderful, and it has been grasped with both hands by wellness and calming apps like headspace, helping sleepers drift dreamily off to sleep each night. ASMR is turning up all over the shop, particularly in music, with artists such as Lana del Ray and Billie Eilish embracing it in their recent award-winning albums such as ‘When we all fall asleep, where do we go’ and ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’.

And that’s because when you orgasm, you release a load of lovely, dreamy and hard to pronounce hormones like Oxytocin, that wash over your body, soothing you into a deep slumber.

From Judy Blume to Jilly Cooper, that bedtime read has been sending us off to sweet dreams in more ways than one for generations.
