Age 19 - Porn-induced ED cured: Now I just need to find one girl I want to settle down with

I blew it in a couple of seconds. Funny. I started this challenge out to cure my PIED because not only was I semi erect, I could last for 20-30 minutes and struggle to come. Now it took three seconds. Embarrassing, sure, but man am I happy that I can both keep it up and orgasm from sex.

There’s growing evidence that today’s streaming pornography videos are sui generis, with unique properties such as inexhaustible sexual novelty at a swipe, effortless escalation to more extreme material, and accessibility by youthful viewers, and that these unique properties are giving rise to severe symptoms in some consumers.

Erections are back, more confidence, insight into problem internet use

Today is the day. It's funny, but for a while I never thought that I'd make it to 90 days. It feels surreal right now that I'm at the top of a mountain that seemed impossible to climb. At the time, it seemed like those who achieved 90 days were somehow higher quality people, the elite bunch who excelled at everything in life. I was, ostensibly, falling victim to a different kind of fantasy.

YBOP response to Jim Pfaus's "Trust a Scientist: Sex Addiction Is a Myth" (January, 2016)

How about trusting addiction neuroscientists and peer-reviewed papers?

Before I address many of the claims within the Pfaus article (link to the Pfaus article), it must be noted that Jim Pfaus omitted the 30 neuroscience-based studies on porn users published in the last few years. So far, the results of every "brain study" (MRI, fMRI, EEG, neuropsychological, neuro-hormonal) offer support for the concept of porn addiction. In addition to reporting the same fundamental brain changes as seen in substance addicts, a few studies also reported greater porn use is associated with erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation, decreased libido, and reduced neural response to images of vanilla porn. The up-to-date list of current "brain studies" is here.

Age 19 - Sexual confidence back, NoFap definitely works.

I went 64 days without porn/sex and I remember how much more enthusiasm, motivation and courage I had. It was a really eye-opening time. I'm on the 11th day of NoFap now, tbh girls have always liked me but now i'm on NoFap it's crazy.

Age 15 - Lot more energy, Social anxiety is disappearing, More confidence, More aggressive, Clearer mind, Sexual energy is through the roof

So I've been doing NoFap for a while like 2 years and I am not gonna share my story because its losing your time. So my benefits so far:

  • A lot more energy in the gym
  • Social anxiety is disappearing
  • More confidence
  • Music sounds better
  • I feel comfortable in my own skin a little bit more
  • More aggressive

Age 48 - NoFap saved my marriage and my life

I’ll have to start near the end of this story as I don't want to bore everyone with the boring back-story so here are the salient points.

  • Feeling lonely
  • No one to turn to
  • Parents passed away
  • Sexless marriage
  • Retreated into porn
  • Been using porn since a teen, now 48

NoFap Benefits After 2 Years: What Has Changed?! By RSDMax

NoFap Benefits After 2 Years: What Has Changed?! (THE TRUTH)

By - RSDMax

Age 21 - From a mumbling, stuttering outcast to someone people are glad to have around

WOOO THE HYPE IS REAL LETS GOOOO. I went from being the third wheel/ the outcast, hating myself to Day 90 full of energy. People are glad to have me around. My eyes went from dull to beautiful, full of life. My hair went from sick-looking brown to high detail looking blackish. I am blonde btw just very dirty blond.

Age 23 - PIED about cured: Morning wood is consistent, I am more relaxed, my anxiety is very low, and I overall feel more confident

My experience with porn began when I was young like many of you, and I masturbated aggressively for many years starting around age 10. At that age I suspect I was too young for it to affect me badly, and I had no knowledge of PIED or anything of that nature. ED was not something I was at all concerned about. Around age 18-19 I was having very successful sex with more than one partner, even though I did use porn fairly regularly.

Age 15 - Increased confidence, easier to be myself

I'm 15 and when I got really into PMO I started to jack off to trans porn and eventually got into gay porn. That was the breaking point which made me realize that I have to be serious about Nofap. I also noticed that I acted really strange around girls and I just had a creepy vibe.

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 29 - Married, PIED all but gone, best sex ever

I'm 29, and I've known about NoFap for a few years. But I didn't have any real negative effects from PMO for years, but around a year or so ago performance anxiety  about sex crept in, and for a long while I had ED. It was hell for my wife and I. After speaking to a therapist i realised the issue and worked to resolve it. So far so good!
