That's a question that has been baffling for me since I first got to know about the destructive nature of high-speed internet porn.

Personally, I developed PIED before tubes sites even were a thing (or before I started using them). So there were no multiple tabs for me, I mainly watched DVD-Rips on a crappy tube tv. Some people watch HD porn on tube sites for years and don't seem to be fazed at all when it comes to their sexual functioning.

Moreover, why do some people develop PIED, others PE and even others DE? And the poorest souls hit the jackpot and get PE and PIED.

How would you explain it? What's your best guess? And why are there still no studies out there which probe the causes of it? Are we just more sensitive to audio-visual stimuli than others? Is there an evil dungeon master in the back who rolls the dice every time a young boy gets exposed to porn?

Feel free to chime in!

Great question. I've often wondered this myself.

My best guess: some brains are simply more vulnerable to developing PIED

In a way, getting PIED (and the bonus of PE) could be considered a blessing. It is a wake-up call. Porn is bad whether or not one develops the symptoms of PIED.
