The Whispering Community

Is the internet too noisy for you? Then perhaps you might want to join the web's whispering community. They post videos (or audiotracks) of themselves whispering. Here's an example:

I first encountered the whisper community a while back when I did a search on youtube for "Elephants on Acid" (title of one of my books) and came across videos of people whispering stories from the book. Here 'WhisperHub' whispers 'The Tickle Experiment'.

I really don't get it. What is the point?

Annoying. Plus bad for your vocal folds.

I got this button on my desktop (and one on my keyboard) that adjusts the volume. Ya think these weirdos people didn't get one with their Apple Macs?

One mans poison... I actually detest, loathe immensely, the recorded sound of whispering. I will change the channel or switch off if I hear it.

These videos are created for people that have a condition called asmr. These videos helps people with this condition that might have insomnia or just have trouble sleeping one night. Based on Jill's comment it appears she has asmr. goodle it and you'll understand.
