    Ive been a heavy porn user for about 5 years (started at 12, im 17 now)

    i edge for about an hour for each session and i pmo 2 times a day. One night i noticed my erection was weak mid-masturbation and i kept going with a flaccid and a lot of anxiety. When i finished i had a dopamine high and a low sensitivity penis, doesnt even feel like its mine.


    My erections have not been 100% since this day (mainly girth). I get morning wood but its weak and my penis still feels less sensitive, softer, almost like it is detached from me, testicles also lost a bit of sensitivity. I get erections from stimuli (xxx) but not as strong as they were before this happened.


    I spoke to 4 doctors

    1 said stress
    1 said neurological
    1 said tissue related cause
    1 is asking for a blood test which im doing tomorrow.

    what do you guys think?

    Hello.
    I can relate myself to your case. (Btw, im sorry for my horrible english, I hope you understand xD)
    I started jerking off at the age of 11-12, infortunaly, I was probably one of the 10% of the guys that didn't "learn" how to masturbate the proper way - I did it PRONE. I did extreme pressure on my penis when I jerked off. From what I see fro your cause, your low sensitivity has 2 causes in my opinion: death grip or excessive masturbation

    I fapped probably 2-3 times a day like you, watching porn, altough I don't feel addicted to porn at all that feeling of an Orgasm is something beautiful, I miss more masturbation than pornography.

    So, about you case. Did you masturbate with more strengh than usual ? Perhaps you jerk off very fast up/down, perhaps you do use a lot of strength in your penis ? Perhaps you masturbated prone ? Your lose of sensitivity probably came from this issues. If you had a sexual intercourse right know, the moment you stick you penis inside a vagina you will feel nothing, 0, why ? Because you "trained" yourself to only become aroused and have an orgasm from a certain way, I hope you understand what Im saying.

    Look, I have the same problem as you, I did lost some sentivity in my penis due to prone masturbation, like I said, I don't miss porn at all, I never evolved to hardcore porn and I could easily masturbate without thinking about porn. So, after reading about "Death Grip Syndrome", you should do some research about this too, I noticed that I lost sensitivity because I did too much pressure when I masturbated, so I conditioned myself to only orgasm from a certain way, whats the conclusion ? A vagina will NEVER do so much strengh or whatever in your penis, and you will feel nothing because of it.

    The solution ? Look, you are very young, as I'm I (im 19), as far as I can see you didnt have a severe addiction to PMO, all you need to do is engage in Hard Mode.
    Stop masturbation, stop porn, stop orgasm, dont physically stimulate your penis, try your best to not fantasize, try your best to not go after Psubs (Psubs = searching intentionally for nudes, erotic images) etc, when you have urges and some hot chick crosses your mind count to ten, it will help.

    Your problem is both physical and phsicological. But it has solution. Im on my day 22 and counting, I feel so much better now, I can get easily aroused without physical stimulation, altough I didn't test my sensitivity if I get hard it feels like im about to cum, so, I try as much to avoid that thoughts. I will do my 90 days reboot and I will keep on forever, but only after 90 days I will try to actively pursue sex and see If i notice some improvement.

    Dont give up! You are young, you are much in time to undo that damage. Keep strong, feel free to message me about your addiction.

    I hope this text helps you, beside the grammar errors ahahah (Im sorry, I dont practice English a lot).

    Thank you for the response.


    I usually masturbated standing up, or sitting down. I would rub the end of my head down to the shaft of my penis, which is pretty aggressive. I went fast up and down. Its also harder to get full erections


    And your english is close to fluent, i understand you so you’re good :)

    Masturbating standing up or down, prone or not, the problem is, you masturbated for too many years, you are used to the grip that your hand provides to your penis, but a vagina will never give the same sensation, and thats where the lack of sensitivity comes from.

    Do the 90 day reboot hard mode WITHOUT EDGING, WITHOUT P-SUBS. Dont try to fantasize, if sexual toughts come through your mind, embrace them, accept them but dont stimulate them. You will regain your sensitivity but only if you do the real HARD MODE.

    So, since 16 May, I'm still on my streak, day 35 here.
    I get so much easily aroused, I overcome a flatline, i'm feeling good, my pennis and balls look bigger, I will not try to "test" until I reach 90 days. And I will not test masturbating, after 90 days I will try to date a women and get sex, If I can't, I will continue nofap hardmode and embrace as a lifetime journey.

    One thing that I forgot to mention, don't know if its important.
    When I am very aroused and I have rock hard erections I often feel I will orgasm with my thoughts, without even touching my dick

    Look, im 38 days and If I touch my penis I get a mix of pain with pleasure. I think If i stimulated my glans with the slightest touch I could cum, of course I will not try it but my sensitivity is of course returning.
     
  11. When did you last orgasm?

    I have the same Symptoms as you. My erections have become so weak, sometimes is even hard to get an erection even when I masturbate, i have to apply much pressure or imagine porn.

    So how is the situation now, how is your recovery going? do you feel any improvement on your way ?
