Age 16 - ED: Could no longer get erect with porn. My 90 day report.

It all started when I was 11 (2011). I was in 6th grade at gym class and we were all changing back into our school clothes. In the locker room, topics such as boobs, sex, and dick size came up frequently. On that particular day, the guys started talking about masturbating, and I didn't know what that was so I listened intently.

Married, had to quit P and M to rediscover my wife

Since I knew youbrainonporn I never imagine writing a comment, but the things that happened with me recently made me change my mind and, above all this, made me grateful for all this knowledge that this website brought to me. So, this is my sincerely thankful.

The Dual Control Model - The Role Of Sexual Inhibition & Excitation In Sexual Arousal And Behavior (2007)

COMMENTS: A recent re-discovery. The first paper to report porn-induced ED and porn-induced low libido. In an experiment employing video porn, 50% of the young men couldn't become aroused or achieve erections with porn (average age was 29). The shocked researchers discovered that the men's erectile dysfunction was "related to high levels of exposure to and experience with sexually explicit materials." The limp men had spent a whole of lot of time in bars and bathhouses where porn was "omnipresent," and continuously playing. The men explained that "high exposure to erotica seemed to have resulted in a lower responsivity to "vanilla sex" erotica and an increased need for novelty and variation.

Age 20 - I suffered from clinical depression, major anxiety, paranoia, OCD and mild ADHD: I've also been waiting 3 years to write this post

Where to begin..? That is the big question. It's hard to know what to write because these past 3 years (and 90 days) have turned into a really elaborate story, and all I want is to be able to effect a lasting and permanent change in someone so that they may experience something similar to what I have experienced. (I've also been waiting 3 years to write this post so bear with me as I engage in verbal diarrhea).

ED - Porn ruined my sex life and my marriage: Now able to achieve a full hard erection without porn or fantasy.

Yesterday was a great day for me, I finally felt that I am healed or partially healed and felt sexually normal for the first time in a long long time. I started masturbating when I was 12 to fantasies and a few years started reading sexual stories, looking at magazines and starting watching porn and masturbating in my early twenties. Unlike many people here, I wouldn't go on binge watching or edging and would only watch a couple times a week and not for more than 20 minutes each time.

Age 21 - Courage, focus and motivation up

I still can't believe it. I started fighting this disease in 2015 with no success. But last year I was completely fu..ed up Mad and disappointed. One day I told myself “hey man how long. how long you're going to waste your life trying? Fight once and give all you have to beat it.” It was hard at first but literally it got easier that now pmo is no longer an option for me

Age 26 - No more PIED or delayed ejaculation. Get morning wood every day. My life has changed amazingly.

This is my post after a year of being clean of PMO. Let me tell u again my story. Until 1 year ago I was technically virgin. (Very low past sexual exp). I started PMO tactically from age 18-19 to 25. (First 2-3 years lower frequency). So. 1 year ago I tried to lose my virginity after I met a beautiful girl. So as you can imagine I couldn’t get up due to my PIED. I went to doctor everything was physically fine.

A Urologist Speaks Out About PIED

I never thought I would see the day when several of my younger patients (under 40) would present to my clinic with varying complaints of sexual dysfunction. As a practicing urologist in the United States, I am very familiar with erectile dysfunction (ED) in older men. This typical ED is associated with organic etiologies such as hypertension, vascular or neurologic disease, or some other external pathology. However, I am treating a shockingly high number of men under the age of 40 for erectile dysfunction with absence of any pathology.
