Does this sound like PIED?
« on: June 11, 2014, 07:59:34 AM »
I started masturbating at age 14 or so, then I started watching soft core porn and eventually looking at porn on the internet when we got dial up internet. I couldn't really get off with girls when I would get a hand job or blow job when I was younger. I would have to go home and masturbate. My first experience with sex I lost the erection after penetration, freaked out and got borderline depressed, which also occurred with subsequent attempts. I started avoiding sex and masturbated regularly to porn. As it stands today, I don't get aroused by kissing or even heavy making out. I can get hard to a blow job but if I don't have constant stimulation I lose the erection. I also have severe anxiety/OCD symptoms. I'm at 47 days rebooting no porn, but I've MO'd several times, which always makes me feel depressed. Do I have any chance of recovering? I can't even remember what its like to be truly aroused anymore. It has always felt really natural for me to chase after girls, but when I'm there in the moment I don't really respond. Help please.... I do still wake up with morning erections pretty regularly, but when I'm fully awake I start to get anxiety and worry about my erection and it goes down pretty quickly. Is there any hope for me?

Getting consistent, hard erections to porn but being unable to do so with women = PIED. You didn't describe how you are watching porn, but you have enough info for me to safely assume you get consistent, hard erections to porn. So I'm going with yes.

You can definitely recover, but it may go faster if you stopped masturbating for a time.

Definitely abstain from PMO altogether and don't even M for some time.  If M is making you depressed then it's not helping you.  You won't die from abstaining.  The more you abstain the stronger the urge will get to "mate" with women.  You will become more sensitized to regular sex as well.  right now your penis is used to major visual stimulation plus constant stimulation.  This is what you need to undo.
