Women’s sexual feelings, menstruation, body hair, and more are often taboo topics. Sounds related to these topics are muffled away as much as possible. Can we accentuate these topics as the subject of ASMR? Are there limits to what can be ASMR? Where is the line between discomfort and pleasure?

sssht is a short film that aims to break the taboos surrounding the female body. The film is a collaboration with Semma Raadschelders, Marthe Visser, Iris de Vries and Lieke van Zijl and is created for the course Meta Media at Leiden University.
