Do I have PIED?
« on: April 14, 2019, 10:30:14 AM »
I had difficulty achieving an erection with my ex, although I could usually make it erect enough to have pleasurable intercourse, although it wasn't fully erect so it didn't feel as good as it could've nor was it as long as it could be. I realized that I achieved erection due to watching porn much easier, so I assumed that I had PIED. I obtained some Sildenafil pills after visiting my doctor, although I never had the opportunity to test whether or not they would be conducive as my ex and I broke up before meeting each-other again (we were in a long distance relationship). I wanted to determine whether or not I could achieve an erection without porn, and, apparently, the erection that I achieved was to the maximum extent and I attained it much easier than when I was attempting to have sex. However, I did achieve it while stroking my penis. Additionally, I did have some anxiety, although not enough to prevent me from having an erection, I would presume. My question is: do I have porn induced erectile dysfunction, and, if so, would the pills eliminate it? Something else that I almost forgot to mention was that, when I was with my gf, I had absolutely no desire to watch porn. The only reason as to why I've been doing it after parting is simply due to the lack of sex, and the fact that I'm not willing to have sex just for the pleasure. So, essentially, after starting another relationship, I'd start my reboot regardless. I would like to know if the pills would be adequate for the time before my recovery, while in the relationship, so that I could have sex. And, as I said, I can still sustain a decent erection with limited pleasure without difficulty, without any pills. It is possible for me to sustain a full erection while having sex, although it just takes a long time and is relatively difficult.

Yes, then that sounds like PIED.

The pills will not eliminate it. Yes, they may help you maintain an erection sufficient for intercourse but they will not address the underlying problem. In fact, they could make it worse as you begin to depend on them. Unless you have a medical condition that requires ED drugs, I'd strongly recommend not using them.

The best solution: absolutely no porn, limited or no masturbation, get healthy ... and patience. Give it time (however long it takes).

Alright, thank you. Also, another question, why could I attain a full erection whilst not watching porn and just imagining, but I had a great amount of difficulty while having sex? I was extremely attracted to her and she was gorgeous, so I don't quite understand that. I'm quite certain that I'm not more attracted to my imagination as opposed to her, and we did have sex, although it was very difficult to start and maintain although we managed. Is it due to anxiety? I wasn't that anxious.

Fantasy is in the same category as porn. It is artificial. Your brain has been trained to respond to that artificial stimulation.

Avoid all artificial sex, which is self-serving and destructive.

Your brain will rewire.
