1. Abdallah, Dalia. So Far Away, Yet So Close : A Study on How Intimacy Is Attempted to Be Produced in Girlfriend Roleplay ASMR Videos on YouTube.

Degree: Media and Communication Studies, 2020, Uppsala University

This study examines how ASMRtists, people that create ASMR videos, attempt to create intimacy in their videos on YouTube. ASMR stands for Audio Sensory Meridian Response and is a tingling sensation within the body that can be triggered by various stimuli, such as visuals and sounds. This study processes girlfriend roleplay ASMR, which is when female ASMRtists roleplay being the viewer's girlfriend. ASMR and girlfriend roleplay ASMR are relatively new phenomena which have emerged through digitalization and its reconstruction of the concept of intimacy. It has yet to be scientifically researched and this study contributes to the research gap. Through conducting semiotic video analyzes, this study explores how the ASMRtists attempt to produce intimacy in their girlfriend roleplay ASMR videos. The result landed in that the ASMRtists attempt to produce intimacy in various creative ways that override the screen. It is likely that the ASMRtists attempt to generate both an emotional and physical connection to the viewer through combining elements from real-life relationships and different ASMR triggers. Through making use of theories of dramaturgy, the male gaze and gender displays, the study has analyzed the material and uncovered norms and structures in society that the ASMRtists arguably rely on. The number of people that consumes these videos shows that there is a demand for new ways of creating intimacy. The development of digitalization will most likely continue to open up new forms of digital intimacy which makes it an exciting topic to conduct further research on.

Denna studie undersöker hur ASMRtists, personer som skapar ASMR videos, försöker producera intimitet i sina videos på YouTube. ASMR står för Audio Sensory Meridian Response och är en känsla av välbehag som kan triggas igång av olika stimuli såsom ljud och bild. Denna undersökning behandlar flickvänsrollspels-ASMR, vilket är när kvinnliga ASMRtists rollspelar tittarens flickvän. ASMR och flickvänsrollspels-ASMR är relativt nya fenomen vars uppkomst har möjliggjorts tack vare digitaliseringen och dess omstrukturering av begreppet intimitet. Det har ännu inte vetenskapligt forskats om flickvänsrollspels-ASMR och denna studie bidrar till att fylla denna forskningslucka. Genom att genomföra semiotisk videoanalys ämnar denna studie till att utforska hur ASMRtisterna försöker producera intimitet i sina videoklipp. Resultatet visade att ASMRtisterna försöker producera intimitet på flertal kreativa sätt som överskrider skärmen. Det är troligt att ASMRtisterna försöker skapa både en emotionell och fysisk koppling till tittaren genom att kombinera inslag från verkliga relationer och olika ASMR stimuli. Genom teorier från dramaturgin, den manliga blicken och gender displays har denna studie analyserat materialet och visat på normer och strukturer i samhället som ASMRtisterna mest sannolikt vilar på. Med anledning av det stora antalet konsumenter av dessa videos kan det antas att det finns en efterfrågan på nya sätt att skapa intimitet. Digitaliseringens…
