17 Year Old - ED

(1/1)

Hi all,
So I am 17 (almost 18) and have been into porn since I was around 13. Recently I have started dated someone ive known for over a year, and I am absolutely into her with all my being. Shes gorgeous, perfect, and I really love her. Lately though we have been messing around or doing foreplay, and my dick will only like half way work, never hard enough to actually do something. I went to the doctor and got my testosterone and blood flow checked and everything was in order. I eventually found out about this "Porn Induced ED" and have realized I'm a victim. I really wanna be able to satisfy her, really make love to her, so I need to get beyond this. I have given up porn and masturbation, and plan to let her know whats wrong with me, and that I will get better. I worry about how long this will take, and any advice/pointers would be much appreciated. I cant and wont let this dominate my life.

What up alexbkennedy,

Glad to have you here man. Know exactly how you feel as I had gorgeous, perfect in my eyes, girl who I could not get aroused at all by... very frustrating. BUT the reboot process worked and now I am able to get aroused easily. There is hope and you are on the right path now that you are here!

Great start! It is definitely a good thing to be open and honest with your girl. It is only fair to her that you do that as you would want to know if you were in her shoes. If she excepts your past mistakes and stays along side you during this process your relationship will be better and stronger in the end. I hope the best for you.

There is no answer to how long it will take as literally everyone is different and there are so many variables that go into this.

Have you seen my Porn Induced ED advice video? -->https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0dDLWGMhUo

First read all the sticky posts in the P addiction section and porn induced ED section as that will give you a good jumpstart to the rebooting process.

Then I suggest learning as much as you can about the brain and porn addiction on YourBrainOnPorn.com and staying as active as possible doing healthy things. Pursue your girls heart and enjoy all the little things together. There is so much more to do in life other than sex... and experiencing new stuff and enjoying each other I promise will lead to a deeper more sustaining satisfaction in the relationship.

Stay strong man

much love

@ Gabe Deem
Thank you so much for your support, it means a lot!
I told her recently, and she has been really great and understanding about it. Only thing is at times she feels almost like its her fault, like shes not as good as the porn and therefor inadequate from a physical stand point. I always let her know its not her fault, and explained the whole thing to her, but I just hate the thought of her not feeling good enough. /: Any advice on this current situation?

Also I have been successful in not jacking off or watching any porn or porn related stuff, and its great to be letting this go! I've only been doing this for a little over a week, but I feel like im regaining some sensitivity down there, and its great. Once again, thank you Gabe! The videos have really helped.
