ED and barely watch porn, Porn induced ED?
« on: June 30, 2014, 11:30:45 PM »
Yeah, I discovered this forum and wanted to share my story....

It's been nearly 2 or 3 years since I had ED, as in no erections throughout the day, barely any morning wood. I went to a few psychologist and a urologist, in the end they said there is no problem and that everyone is different concerning libido/sexual drive, and I should live normally and accept it, even after I mentioned that I don't get erections throughout the day. The conclusion was that, since I am a shy and sensitive person it was psychologically normal and that's how my brain was programmed. But looking to the world outside I felt like an outsider compared to my sexually-starved friends. I still felt like something wasn't right.

A little about me, I used to watch A LOT of porn back in middle school/early high school. I never had sex nor ever thought of getting a girlfriend at that time (even though I was dying to ask this girl out that I had a crush on, my shyness/previous old religious issues prevented me from approaching her). So I pretty much grew up watching porn since I was around 14-15 years old and relied on that for my sexual satisfaction.

This year I didn't masturbate to porn as much because I finally got a girlfriend this year at the age of 21, but I still felt something wasn't right and was dissatisfied sometimes when I first starting having sex ad hooked up with her. It took me 3 months to finally penetrate her (I attributed it to the fact she was a tight virgin) with a 50% firm erection, compared with my porn use achieving a 100% erection. After hooking up my porn usage decreased to once every few days or even once a week. (I used to watch porn around every 2 days the year before hooking up). So I am sure I am not addicted to porn because it doesn't cross my mind until I think about it.

Right now I stopped watching porn for about 2 weeks, I get random fantasies that pop up (including weird gay ones because the habit of gay/transexual porn formed about 5 months ago) But I am certain I am heterosexual because girls attract my mind in the outside world and cross my thoughts every while. I felt horny one time in the shower after stopping porn usage, decided to bust a nut and fapped to a random gay fantasy then switched it to a heterosexual fantasy to climax (that's what I usually do when watching porn) And I find this habit disgusting, it was the last time I masturbated 2 weeks ago, after that I have stopped since.

So pretty much I didn't have any sexual contact until I was 20, before that I watched porn all the time. The past year I could imagine myself living without porn, even went a week or two without crossing my mind (probably because of my girlfriend), but I am still suffering from ED during the day and can't always achieve boners with my girlfriend. Around 70% of the time it works but I also suffer from extreme delayed ejaculation and feel numb when having sex, no satisfaction sometimes.

SO in your personal opinions, is this issue related to porn and should I continue avoiding it? I feel like this mentality and habit has been with me all my life and it seems it would never change, I attributed it to smoking weed daily/ and drinking alcohol weekly throughout the year, thinking it was some form of depression. I would greatly appreciate any helpful response, sometimes I don't feel human :( Thanks for reading my post.

You don't have to feel "addicted" to develop porn induced sexual dysfunctions. I never considered myself addicted (although clearly I was) to porn until I realized I was dependent on porn to get and maintain an erection. Porn induced ED in young men is more about sexually conditioning ourselves to become aroused by a certain stimulus (porn on screens) and not people in person.

Many rebooters with porn induced ED and delayed ejaculation also did not fap to porn a crazy amount of times per week. I was usually a once or twice a day guy, and others have been a few times a week as well.

So to answer your question..

Yes I do, in my opinion. Your story is similar to many other rebooters. The fact that you spent a lot of your adolescence watching porn is reason enough to give the reboot a shot. It can't hurt.

Go a head and commit to this for the long haul and be patient. Watch the vids on the home page of this site and read the sticky threads at the top of the forum sections. And also read a lot of the material on YourBrainOnPorn.com

Welcome to the Nation. I hope the best for you
