    Hi guys,

    so kinda a long story

    I was healthy sexually up until I was 21 years old. I noticed that I couldn't get as hard as i used to but still could get an erection while watching porn. I never went to the doctor becauee I was too embarassed to talk about this with someone else. Fast forward...now I'm 26 and today has been the worst day of my fucking life. Even while masturbating and watching porn I can't get an erection. Please tell me this id due to PIED. I am not unhealthy. I don't smoke, I've never taken drugs, I excersize on a regular. I do watch porn a whole lot. I just want to know if having no erection at all is a sign of PIED or if I should go see a doctor. Shouldn't people with PIED still get erections while watching porn?

    The question is, when you go to masturbate to porn, are you feeling horny in any other way? Or are you just masturbating to porn out of habit?

    I've had occasional moments like that over the years, where I am masturbating just out of habit, even though I'm not particularly in the mood for it. At the moment I have gone 24 days without PMO, and this morning I woke up with morning wood and woke up several times in the night with wood. Aged 40.

    today was the only day I jacked off just to see if it still worked becasue the entire day at work my penis felt lifeless. I barely got hard at all and felt my cum coming in like 1 minute of jacking off. Totaly off for me. Big red flag

    Yeah, you definitely need to quit PMO for a while, allow time for your body to recover.

    Yes, it happened to me too. This is anxiety's fault too. I was thinking the same, something like :"let's see if it become hard" and nothing happened. Then after days, without think about that, he became hard again.Quit pmo and you'll see.

    Did you wake up with no morning wood for a while?
    Waking up with no morning wood was the first sign that I had ED. I had normal erections and morning wood for all these years and then 1 day I woke up with no wood and later in the day no erection to porn and I started to freak.

    I don't think its anything to be scared about, dopamine can have some weird effects on your body. Not waking up with the rooster cracking is quite normal for your age, I'm 24 and don't wake up with a raging hard on most of the time.

    I'm no expert, but I think ED is when you start having consistent issues of not being able to become arroused while in real sexual situations. Not when you're trying to force yourself to PMO.

    I think you put too much pressure on yourself, and especially because you didn't get a wood erection this morning.

    The trap is to act like this :
    - My penis is tired or quite dead
    - So let's try if it really works, in a fapping session on porn
    - I have an inner feeling of anxiety and guiltiness, so it does'nt partially or totally work
    - I'm probably sick or have an ED
    - My anxiety level raise
    - My erection is more and more weak

    it's probably just high stress or you body is slowing down and needs some rest. You know, the enemy number one of Erection is Anxiety, the less you have, the more erections come bigger and harder; and vice versa.

    If you had morning erections before, you're not unhealthy at all my friend, so just manage stress, anxiety if you got some, and stop focusing on your erections, focus just on your health and your happiness, believe me your erections will become awesome.

    Peace :)

    Hi Nick,

    I'll tell you this, it is reversible.
    I couldn't even get hard too porn this time last year.
    I met my ex about 20 days into a reboot and because she was a virgin we took things slowly and had sex 120 days into my reboot.
    I was able to get hard during foreplay on day 50 and 60 and whilst kissing on other days.
    About 8 months on I was able to have erections by just foreplay alone.
    I have just relapsed to porn twice after our break up and they were ridiculously hard.
    So I know I've made alot of progress from last year.
    You can too.
    Just quit porn.
    I'm now back on day 2 myself and vow to keep this up.

    By "they were ridiculously hard" do you mean your erections?
    also, is it a common symptom to feel your penis pump twice in a row multiple times throughout the day? I don't know how to explain it but I could be just sitting at my office desk or walking around and my flaccid penis will just pump twice.

    Not entirely true. It could be very different depending on the person and length of addiction.

    I am.
    Today I was watching some girl (none porn related, just an attractive girl talking) on TV and I got an erection but now my erections don't last long. Before it would take time for them to go away but now it seems like they go away instantly. Plus, some days I wake up with wood, other mornings with no wood at all, some nights I'll wake up in the middle of the night and I have wood but later on when I wake up in the morning I have no wood. It is all so very inconsistent and bizzare. My penis feels different when flaccid as well. That's how I first came to know of the problem was when I was driving to work perfectly fine but felt that my penis feels dead.
