Am I considered one of the 'rare' cases of someone with PIED?

    I started PMOing the age of 11 years old all the way up until 2016 when I got into my first relationship at 18 years old and realized I couldn't get it up (i.e. severe PIED). I rewired with this woman until I could eventually get it up for sex during those 5 weeks however my erections were shit. After we broke up, I relapsed after starting to experience morning wood for a couple of mornings and carried on with PMO for another couple of years with numerous attempts to quit but constantly failing. In 2020, I have reduced my porn use exponentially however MOing has carried on as normal. I have now come to a decision to quit both porn and masturbation as the two seem inherently linked with one another. It's no surprise every single success story includes no porn use and no fapping as well.

    My main concern in this thread revolves around my erectile health, I couldn't care less about the 'superpowers' that nofap supposedly gives you. My whole objective is to simply be able to get it up again as normal and have sex. However I'm in a very strange situation. My libido is always there but my dick is completely dead. At the same time, I don't have a desire in the world to ever watch porn again. It's like a thing of the past for me now. I think my only issue is literally MOing as a result of the urges. So I'm in a situation where I have urges but no erections? Does that even make any sense? I don't know what to do at this point. I've decided to embark upon a journey of no porn and NoFap now, but is this considered normal what is happening to me? My dick is completely dead even when trying to masturbate, yet I still have urges floating around and a sex drive. It's so paradoxical I don't even understand this myself.

    Could you tell me if you or anyone you know has been through this before? I'm just confused right now, I need guidance and really and truly you people on here are all I have to turn to, and we're all in this together to be honest.

    Thanks for sharing your story. May I ask how often you are MOing? It’s very possible that you need to give yourself an extended break from M, or some much longer intervals between sessions.

    So I'd say I stopped watching porn fully around May this year. However I have been MOing as usual (whenever I felt like it) up until the 28th of July 2020, where I had a 5 day streak, then an 8 day streak, then a 13 day streak where I relpased with multiple MOs each time. I just went another 3 days without MO and relapsed this morning. But to be totally honest I haven't taken this nofap thing seriously until today as I have gotten a taste of what it's all about. But the important thing I want to highlight here is I can't even get erect when masturbating, it's like releasing urges with a dead penis. What worries me is that I've never heard of a case like mine, although I have heard of 2 year flatlines. But would you even consider what I have a flatline? I am perfectly healthy so I don't think my erectile dysfunction could be related to anything other than PIED. What are your thoughts on this?

    Sounds like a pretty standard case to me, just be grateful that you haven't fapped your libido away too.

    Before the 28th of July, I was MOing more or less every single day, even up to multiple times a day

    Baring in mind, I probably wouldn't even get hard to porn at this point

    Try going 30 days without M. You may discover a lot about your sexual responses if you have never had many breaks of over a week before. If you don’t experience erections in that period, you may want to have more consultations on this. But I bet you will have them.

    If M remains part of your life, I highly recommend doing it only when “inspired”, not from boredom or stress or sadness or just a small amount of horniness, and only if you have a strong erection to start. Furthermore, don’t do it whenever you feel like it. Give yourself a week or two in between sessions, get to experience your arousal patterns, learn to recharge and live with this desire as a positive energy source in your life. Good luck, man.

    Why don't you experiment with yourself a little more. Try to abstain from P as well as MO for 21 days.

    Reducing the frequency of M can be helpful.

    You don't have to be so anxious. Know that it takes time, a few months perhaps, for the mojo to come back in its totality.

    Good Luck!

    Yes, you are far gone but not rare.

    Don't overthink things, you've fapped a lot and your brain/penis need a rest, that's all.

    Thank you so much for your advice my dear friend, God bless you. I wanted to ask how your journey has been and did MO ever hinder your progress? When did you start receiving erections?
