ASMR Darling is an American social media star, actress, and TV personality best known for her YouTube channel of the same name, which has amassed a fanbase of more than 2.5 million subscribers. As the name suggests, her channel’s content is based around ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). It is a term used to describe an experience that included a tingling or static-like sensation on the skin, starting from the top of the head, and slowly moving downward. ASMR Darling, also known as Taylor Darling, started the channel on December 10, 2014, out of her own desire to find new “triggers” for herself and thus easily fall asleep or simply relax. She published her 1st video in March 2016. When she finally did, it was in the spirit of aiding the ASMR community led by fellow YouTubers, Gibi ASMR and SAS-ASMR, and not to make it her job.
Her channel hit the milestone of 2 million subscribers in September 2018 and continued to grow at an even faster pace over the next few months. Taylor also commonly played 3 characters with different voices and personalities on her channel – B*tchy Brittney, Ella, and Summer. She also created a secondary YouTube channel on May 26, 2016, simply titled Darling, which was dedicated to all of her activities outside of ASMR, such as vlogs, gaming, and behind-the-scenes footage. She has also done shopping hauls, makeup reviews, and played video games such as Fortnite, Battlefield 1, Resident Evil 7, Detroit: Become Human, and Fortnite. Taylor has also amassed a large social media fanbase online with more than 300k followers on her primary Instagram account and more than 100k followers on her secondary Instagram account and Twitter.
