#SleepWhispers … New Sandmen For Some?


One of the latest crazes on the Internet is Sleep Whispering. Using calming voices and soothing sounds on their YouTube videos, Sleep Whisperers claim to create a serene sensation, similar to that of having someone gently running fingers on the face, arms, legs, back, etc., that reduces anxiety and cures insomnia. Some find these videos as or more effective than meds.

Panacea or ploy, Sleep Whispering brings up thought-provoking questions: Why are humans seeking meaningful human interactions on the Internet and not in person? What effect is this behavior having on our ability to interact successfully with others?
