Is watching porn an odd experience?
As a result of this, do you refrain from watching horror movies ( Saw, etc)?
Have you tried VR yet? I would think that mirror touch synesthesia would make VR like 5 levels of awesome.
How do the people you associate with feel a out your superhuman level of empathy? Does it change how they interact with you?
How do you experience fatherhood?

Does the physical touch sensation occur even in response to things happening within your field of view but outside your immediate focus of attention? (So that you feel something on your body and then have to look around to see what the cause was.)
Greetings, Dr. Salinas. Thank you for offering this AMA! Have you (or other mirror touch synesthetes) been analyzed via PET or fMRI scans? What is known about the neurophysiology of this kind of synesthesia?
Does it work with pictures and movies or just in the real world?
What if somebody touches something you have no idea what it feels like?
If you’re ill and you see somebody who is in perfect health and doing healthy stuff do you feel better as a result?
Dr. Salinas, thank you for doing this ama. My question is, Has having someone describe a sensation that you've never personally experienced change how your mirror touch approximates it?
If you are watching a fight and one person ends of being cut with a knife, do you feel the anger of the person cutting, the sensation of being cut, the emotional aspect of being cut or all three at once?
My mentor in grad school studied Synesthesia. I found it very fascinating. Thank you for sharing your experience.
Do you know if there are any cases of mirror touch existing in a para/quadriplegic individual?
What are the best and worst experiences you’ve had due to mirror touch?
