Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa and Jenelle “Indiefoxx” Dagres, both Twitch streamers, have been banned.
In recent weeks, the two were among the most well-known broadcasters to attempt to transmit “overtly sexual” ASMR content. Amouranth and Indiefoxx were both part of the popular “hot-tub” meta on Twitch in recent months.
In recent weeks, however, the “ASMR” category on Twitch has garnered more viewers than the “Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches” category. However, it appears that the “sexually suggestive” feeds are now being banned.
For the time being, Amouranth and Indiefoxx have been banned from the platform. Furthermore, Twitch has not revealed the particular reason for the two bans, nor the length of time they will last.

Indiefoxx and Amouranth have been banned from Twitch, and Twitter has reacted.
Both streamers used to host hot-tub streams, but in recent weeks, many hot-tub broadcasters have migrated to the ASMR category. In exchange for new subscribers/donations, Indiefoxx and Amouranth wore “TikTok leggings” and promised to “lick their microphones suggestively.”
Indiefoxx, in example, had devised a wide range of services for various donation amounts. She also offered to put the contributors’ names on her forehead/body or post them on social media, in addition to licking the microphone.
The feeds were a hit, attracting more viewers than Twitch’s “Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches” category. The controversial duo’s bans, however, elicited a wide range of reactions from Twitterati, as shown below:

Amouranth and Indiefoxx decided that 'ear-licking' ASMR streams were the new way forward. For some reason they have been banned. pic.twitter.com/bPkxh1e4Mr

The Twitch crowd, as expected, reacted similarly to the entire hot-tub scandal. It's worth noting that Twitch streamer "alinaarose" was also banned in February 2021 for "intimately licking a microphone."
It was previously reported by Sportskeeda that the platform might take action against the ASMR streamers.
Both Amouranth and Indiefoxx have been banned from the platform as a result of this. Of course, Twitch hasn't announced the official reason, but their ASMR streams have been thought to be the cause, as evidenced by the tweets.
