Just a little cheering on to all of you out there. Yeah, things are crazy but you know what? We’ll keep moving on. We’ll get through this. Just like the heart continues to beat in spite of everything, we will march through one day at a time and be able to celebrate on the other side of this lockdown <3
It’s… different. A stethoscope was created to amplify the specific sounds your body makes, and most of them do that very well. The ear, however, was made to hear all things. Which doesn’t make it better or worse, just different. A stethoscope, in my opinion, can make heart sounds louder and clearer… but I prefer the other way.
When you have your ear to someone’s chest, whether clothing is present or not, you’ve been invited into their space in a way I don’t feel you can achieve with a stethoscope. You’re so close, you can feel them breathe, can feel their heat… there’s a beauty in that level of trust that I love. It’s even better if they’re not wearing a shirt, because there is something inexplicably comforting about skin to skin touch. I really have no idea how to describe that… but I can tell you that before I met my cuddle buddy, I literally had no idea how comfortable and close it feels to be embraced by someone you love and trust, and feel their skin against yours, and hear their heartbeat against your ear. But I’ll try to explain it anyway.
It’s like… it’s like being wrapped in the most comfy quilt you could ever imagine, but also knowing that quilt is sentient and CARES. It wants you to be there, it likes wrapping you up, it somehow needs to keep you warm and safe and happy. It, itself, is pleased when you are happy, and it will do whatever it takes to make sure that when you’re hurt or scared or lonely, you only need look for that quilt. Just hear its heart and feel its quilty arms around you, to know that when you’re all wrapped up everything will be okay. :) And yes, you can hear it from the right positions, quite clearly.
I sincerely hope you get an opportunity to experience this yourself. It is wonderful, but don’t let someone you’re not comfortable with pressure you into it. The results are not the same at all and the first person that ever tried to hold me went too far too fast, causing me to be afraid of things like cuddling and kissing for a very long time. Fortunately the man I met who is my cuddle buddy now is very patient and caring and I couldn’t be luckier or more grateful!
Saw the Sonic movie recently and it actually confirmed a kind of obvious question/thought that’d been with me for years: yes, Sonic’s resting heart rate is HIGH. How high? Don’t know, but as Sonic is a character near and dear to me, that was nice to get official word on finally. Obvious yes, but it was official :D
So, these are a few of the new emojis to be released this year. This year has quite a few inclusive ones, such as wheelchairs, probing canes, guide dogs, gender neutral people, and mixed race couples. But I scroll through the list and find this. A stethoscope emoji! ❤️
So that WAS a new release for this year! I was really happy when I first saw it :D Like, FINALLY it exists X3
Coffee is delicious but today it’s annoying lol.
Case in point: coffee affects me differently on different days. Today my body has decided to react to it by making my heart kinda thumpy, so I can hear it in my headphones more pronounced than usual (I wear over-ear headphones). Kind of distracting while I’m trying to watch YouTube because my brain keeps going “…is that the YouTuber’s heartbeat?? No, it’s mine. …Am I sure??” lol
Anyone else find themselves holding their breath when they’re listening to heartbeats online? Like, you wanna hear them as clearly as possible, so you just kind of automatically hold your breath and you’re as still as possible so you don’t make noise with your headphones?
Maybe I’m just weird lol
Can you imagine lying in someone’s arms at dusk and listening to the sound of their heartbeat? Being so completely and utterly in love with them that the steady thud in their chest is somehow a miracle, drawing you in and reminding you that life is precious. Suddenly, everything is fragile and beautiful. The way the blood pumps through their veins, the way their chest rises and falls; these simple indications of life are so overwhelming. They’re alive and right beside you. They’re in love with you. They’re alive. You’re alive. It’s okay.
I wrote a poem a while back about this same subject (”Signs of Life”) :3 Oh so true
Scenarios that Cardiophiles love:
1. I just fell against your chest and accidentally heard your heartbeat and I must inform you of this by saying “I can hear your heartbeat.”
2. Someone checking your pulse after you got injured.
3. Someone checking your pulse after you got injured/you were scared or panicking and commenting, “your pulse is quick.”
4. Someone accidentally feeling your heartbeat somehow and mentioning it.
5. When you’re laying down with someone’s head on your chest and they feel the need to tell you they can hear your heartbeat. Bonus points of they describe it as “fast, loud, or beautiful.”
6. Someone knowing you’re a cardiophile and they go out of their way to give attention to your pulse points or your heart just to rile you up.
7. Kissing and they put their hand over your heart.
8. Someone, unprompted, saying “my heart is racing” or telling you to “feel my heart.”
Any of these will make a cardiophile squirm in all the best ways.
All of these are a yes for me
Oh heck…. 😍😍😍 (I was going to pick out a favourite, but just about all of them would give me tingles….)
Gosh! That’s so true xD I have a non-cardiophile queerplatonic partner who uses 6 (and more) so much already ^^ He really is adorable <3
I think some of these would make me uncomfortable unless it was with my crush lol. THEN I’d totally eat it up X3 (well maybe except the injured one, but the pulse thing would probably be more of a distracting balm if I was injured, lol)
Found a picture of my crush actually using a stethoscope like you’re supposed to and I just askdjfakjdfh
When I found the source, apparently the context was still just being goofy but who cares; I was giddy all afternoon lol
Do you enjoy listening to your own heartbeat?
Oh yeah, I love it. But prefer a female to listen - any offers!
There are times when I steth myself silly, losing myself in my own beats (and invariably ending in a huge orgasm 😳). But then I can go days where I can’t even look at my steth because it just makes me so frustrated that I don’t have a cardiophile partner to share my beats with … :(
Love love love it!! Although I’m dying to have someone else at the other end of the stethoscope - either listening or being listened to!
I also wish I had someone to share my heart with IRL (sigh)
I do enjoy it. It’s a nice, grounding experience and sometimes makes me sleepy, lol.
But I also share the desire as mentioned above to listen to another’s heartbeat… specifically my crush’s. The day that happens will be one that I treasure for-freakin-EVER.
“Everyone’s cardiac signature is unique, and unlike faces and fingerprints, it can’t be altered in any way.”
So apparently the Pentagon has developed a laser to identify people via heartbeats and while the security/privacy implications of that can be horrifying, it’s also pretty amazing and relevant to our interests 😉
This is freaking awesome and also totally validates the tattoo I’d want to get someday (can’t get more sweet, personalized, or intimate than getting my future spouse’s heartbeat in ekg form tattooed on me :3)
I wish we could see more of each other. It’s been over a year and I’ve missed you every day since then, and thought about you every single day since you fell through the roof of my brain and hit the floor of my heart… almost two years ago.
I want to hold you in my arms again, embracing your tall, skinny frame once more, your warm arms holding me as tightly as I’m holding you. I want to make you smile and laugh again as we share weird stories from our lives. And just maybe I can work up enough courage to actually look you in the eyes this time and remember just what that felt like. I’m sure I did at least once, and I wish I could remember what looking you in the eyes was like… but at the very least I remember how your sturdy frame felt as we hugged. I wish it could’ve lasted longer.
I don’t fall in love easily. In fact, I thought for the longest time I was asexual. So color me surprised when I realized I was, in fact, demisexual… and I have you to thank for showing me that. I’ve never felt this way about another human being before in my entire life. All I know is that I’m glad you were the one to teach me about this part of myself, even if you have no idea.
My heart has been with you for a long while now, but sadly affixed to the bottom of your shoe as you wander about, completely unaware. My hope is that one day, you’ll finally notice and come to find its owner. And when that day arrives, I hope it is as happy for you as it will be for me.
I felt something that day. I wish I could know if you did too.
With all my love,
I’ve noticed that whenever my interest in my crush starts to wane a little bit, he goes and says something about his heart.
He has no idea the strength this gives me to keep persevering X3 That and it’s cute
It’s a dream of mine to cuddle with my crush while he’s watching a horror movie. I’m not one for horror movies as it is, but I love the thought of facing away from the TV, my head on his chest, listening to his heart thumping while he’s enjoying the spoops from the movie X3
Hope that gets to happen someday
Today when I went to the hospital to see a friend that’s a nurse I when I went to see her she was alone so I asked her can I listen to my heartbeat she said yes I said my heart is beating so fast then she took the stethoscope and listened to my heart and then said do you want to see your heartbeat I said sure and she took me to this room and placed the ultrasound on me and she said wow your heart is beating so fast and hard
The fact that you had a cardiac ultrasound just for fun (and not a medical exam) is suuuper lucky :O
I’m sitting next you on the sofa, and the thing is in my hands and you are the one who suggested this but I’m still a little scared.
I think of all the times I’ve watched you playing videogames— the changes I’ve heard in the cadence and speed of your breathing, the changes I’ve seen in the color of your face.
Now is the time.
Your hand leaves the controller to comfort me; you stroke the back of my head.
Your hand leaves the back of my head to encourage me; I feel your fingertips gliding between my shoulders.
“Go ahead.” And the utterance is a pickaxe into me. You’ve whispered it into my jaw but I feel it in cosmic places.
I swallow. We both hear it. I am so nervous. But I manage to get the ear pieces in, and then my hand has the diaphragm.
You aren’t even looking at me— Too busy with whatever is happening on the television, you stop rubbing my back to guide my hand up and under your shirt to the sound of your heart.
I want this so much, this day-to-day intimacy and trust…
This is so cute and sweet X3 If my crush did this with me… I’d probably melt so much into a puddle that he’d have to use a Shop-Vac to get me up off the couch, lol
Seriously though, I want this so bad; I want to hear his heartbeat while he’s gaming
I said I wanted to try this beer. So I did :D
It actually tastes more like wine or champagne because of the yeast they used… And has a higher alcohol content than usual. Interesting, but good! Wouldn’t have tried it otherwise had there not been a heart on the label to grab my attention :3 This is a great design, and I could see myself maybe getting more someday. Seems a bit like a celebratory beer.
(Yes, I’m a legal adult, don’t worry, lol)
Apologies for the slight moody crush spam, lol; I get this way every now and then…
honestly i love seeing non-cardiophiles’ reactions to our existence. one half is people calling us cute (which we are) and the other is people confused about it lol
I have been informed by my friends that this interest (and to a slight extent, kink and fetish) is honestly one of the cuter ones they’ve heard about :3
Found myself wishing that this side blog had been my main one; I would have loved to see what the Memories tumblr pulled up for this blog, lol
