Or, on a more intimate level, some form of Tantric sinking into some beloved persons arms for relaxing purposes ? Well, come to think of it, there is that song from the Chemical Brothers that might induce that very effect, minus the actual poking and rubbing. Me being more of a midnight talker, you will have to look for someone else for that . Incidentally, said song was used for a TV ad involving Air France, the famous French airplane operator :

Might remind some observers of that cultural phenomenon called catharsis, although not quite. Also, a few people are overly sensitive to some specific noises like when someone chews sweets next to you at the pictures. Such thematic area is way beyond the scope of that thread I guess, but it might explain why ASMR is popular on YT (to relieve the symptoms of Misophonia, wild guess here of course).
