"We are in the midst of a revolution in sexual and romantic tastes unlike any other in history, a social experiment being performed on children and teenagers." Psychiatrist and author Norman Doidge

"What clinicians don’t know much about, yet, is how we shall help teenagers, whose sexual tastes are being influenced by porn, because this level of porn exposure is quite new. Will these influences and tastes turn out to be superficial? Or will the new porn scenarios deeply embed themselves because the teen years are still a formative period?"

"We can hope, as teens discuss this more openly, as that boy did, that they will take action. Today, there are a number of websites springing up for teenagers and young men, who report that going cold turkey seems to be working for them. Not all addictions are of the same magnitude; and some seem reversible. It’s a use-it-or-lose-it brain, even where sexual desire and love are concerned. This means that decisions these boys make shape not only the actions they take, at a given time, but the shape and structure of their brains, over the long haul. That realisation, alone, may be enough to cause them to spend more time thinking about what is the wisest course to take."

everyone take notice as being extremely surprising.

This study ("Prevalence and characteristics of sexual functioning among sexually experienced middle to late adolescents") found rates of sexual dysfunction in 16-21 year olds that surpassed the rates found in adults. Especially surprising were the high rates of sexual problems in males (54%):

Erectile Dysfunction - 27%
Problems with orgasm - 24%
Low sexual desire - 10%

Note. the above percentages are about twice those found in this study of men ages 40-80.

"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.

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.
