35 - Heavily Addicted for 15 years - No ED?

(1/6) > >>

Hey guys so as the title states i don't have PIED, luckily.

My addiction is severe,

Hours of edging daily (5 - 7 hours usually) , hardcore withdrawals when i do abstain, escalation over the years to extreme material, nearly all of the other negative impacts this addiction can have....just not ED.

The only reason for this that i can think of is my sexual experiences. Lost my virginity at 13 with my first girlfriend, had sex with her for 2 full years - then other women as i got older, all the while PMO'ing....i didn't get noticeably impacted by porn though until around age 22 or so. By then i was incapable of dating due to anxiety and self esteem issues ( which made me use more porn) and use prostitutes throughout much of my twenties.

Does anyone else have a chronic long term addiction and not have ED what so ever? my erections aren't "100%" but I've never not been able to have sex, in a 5 year relationship now.

Interested to hear if anyone is the same as me.

I have got PIED, but it seems to be the case, that their is no completely linear correlation between being addicted and having PIED. You can be addicted badly and have no PIED. You can have PIED, but being not as addicted as others. But i assume that, the higher your usage, the higher the chance of getting totally conditioned to Porn. Somewhere in the last 10 minutes Gary Wilson is actually talking a bit about this phenomenon. https://youtu.be/ZLtSoWrEplM

Hey man,

Yeah good point...what I struggle with understanding is that my usage pretty much would have been impossible to increase. Edging for as long as possible 5,7...12 hour sessions on many occasions, daily for basically 10 years. Extreme escalation of material - everything besides BDSM, Hentai, piss/shit, bestiality, vomit or illegal content - that stuff never even crossed my mind to watch. However I escalated to some pretty disgusting depraved stuff. Videos, both profession and amateur , picture galleries, social media women I grew up with or know in real life, Creating these weird scenarios in my mind while PMO'ing...not just looking at the content and thinking "she's hot" and masturbating - I would literally create "scenes" or story lines in my mind.

I'm 22 days deep now on hard mode - penis completely shrunken and cold, flatlining, anxiety increased, insomnia, brain fog, spaced out scattered feeling...the list goes on. I guess it could be like how some people react to drugs with bouts of paranoia or even psychosis...some people get ED - Some don't is the only answer I'll get logically.

It's interesting because some guys have similar stories to me such as Gabe, I'm not sure but i doubt he was watching the weird ass shit I was and edging for the amount of time I was - strange how it gives some ED and not others - again I'm lucky and feel a lot of empathy for guys that do.

Thanks for sharing that video. I have watched it a few months ago, very interesting stuff.

The part where Gary talks about why some guys are more likely than others to develop sexual dysfunctions is at one hour and 5 minutes.

The link to the video Pornography Addiction / Perceived Addiction sucked me in, and helped me get wrapped around my own situation maybe a little better.  Thanks Jeks!
