How long have you tried going without porn? At your age it shouldn't take long to reset your brain. Did you watch this?

"Subcortical BOLD responses during visual sexual stimulation vary as a function of implicit porn associations in women"

Lifetime experiences shape people’s attitudes toward sexual stimuli. Visual sexual stimulation (VSS), for instance, may be perceived as pleasurable by some, but as disgusting or ambiguous by others. VSS depicting explicit penile–vaginal penetration (PEN) is relevant in this respect, because the act of penetration is a core sexual activity. In this study, 20 women without sexual complaints participated. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging and a single-target implicit association task to investigate how brain responses to PEN were modulated by the initial associations in memory (PEN-‘hot’ vs PEN-disgust) with such hardcore pornographic stimuli. Many brain areas responded to PEN in the same way they responded to disgust stimuli, and PEN-induced brain activity was prone to modulation by subjective disgust ratings toward PEN stimuli. The relative implicit PEN-disgust (relative to PEN-‘hot’) associations exclusively modulated PEN-induced brain responses: comparatively negative (PEN-disgust) implicit associations with pornography predicted the strongest PEN-related responses in the basal forebrain (including nucleus accumbens and bed nucleus of stria terminalis), midbrain and amygdala. Since these areas are often implicated in visual sexual processing, the present findings should be taken as a warning: apparently their involvement may also indicate a negative or ambivalent attitude toward sexual stimuli.

It's a bad idea to put any sexual performance pressure on yourself while you're recovering. On the other hand, skin-to-skin affection with a sweetheart is always beneficial. Maybe tell your partner in advance what you're dealing with so she doesn't mistakenly try to rush you into anything. She could read this:

Also, learn about the flatline so you don't get surprised. It's a natural part of the healing:

Good luck! You'll be fine.

Relax. You'll no doubt be fine. It can take months of no masturbation to porn to turn things around. Did you watch Gabe's vids on the home page?

This page is useful too - because things typically get worse for a while after you quit:

Great post. Sounds like you're doing well. You might find this article interesting in light of your experience:

Also, are you thinking of cutting out masturbation for a while again? It would be an interesting experiment. Inspiration:

Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

This is on a PUA site. Regardless, it's a very thorough, step-by-step look at the rebooting challenge. I don't buy the "testosterone" theory. I think it's pretty obvious from the science that the improvements come from fundamental changes in the reward circuit - which may, in turn, influence hormones as well as neurotransmitters. But it's well worth reading anyway, and the author includes lots of links to actual rebooting stories and useful tips.

Good luck. All that experience will pay off now. What helps you the most to distract yourself from cravings?

First, your English is great. Second, are you in relationship? That seems to help a lot on lots of levels.

More tips here:

Good luck!

Sounds like you might not completely be out of your flatline yet. Be patient. Maybe your girl should read this:

You know about the flatline, right? Be patient. You'll be fine in time.
