    Could be both. Low testosteron? If you are below your 30s, you can easily test this by using the natural T booster called zinc. Take 1 pill of 25mg zinc per day for a week and see if it works for you. If your dick still feels lifeless but your sack feels ready to be emptied due to the zinc boost, the problem is most likely PIED

    There seems to be a very extensively spread misconception that it's common to suffer from low testosterone levels. This is possibly due to very clever marketing among companies that sell various vitamins, minerals or herbal pills. If you are below 50 and experience loss of libido or erections, and are or have been a regular porn consumer, then PIED/PAWS is FAR more likely to be the culprit.

    Low testosterone levels would manifest themselves physically, with feminization of breasts, sparse or nonexistent beard growth and accumulated fat dispositions in the hip region (gynoid shape). Again, this is not common.

    My point is it's better to look at the statistics, i.e.
    PIED/loss of libido due to p consumption = extremely, extremely common
    Loss of libido due to "Low T"= quite uncommon in younger males.

    There is a plethora of companies that make a lot of money on men afraid of "loosing their masculinity". Look at the statistics and don't fall into the "Low T"-trap too fast!

    I can say I have PIED and I only get aroused by thinking of porn. It will take some time for someone a bit older but I am 40 as well and I have many years of it to overcome. I just started getting regular morning wood back a couple of weeks ago and its been six months. I was getting nocturnal wood a lot before that as well. You might not take that long as me though.

    Depending the amount of porn consumption inn the past really. What was that like ...??

    A lot, but 6 years ago I just didn't feel horny anymore... Then I read an article that said use it or lose it so I continued to masturbate to porn and managed to have a sex life not good, not bad until this year when I had PIED with my girl and now I want to fight this problem. I want my horniness back. Sometimes I feel it when I'm relaxing, but when I'm walking or busy. I don't feel horny at all. Is it a blood problem? I don't have morning wood or nocturnal erections. I can masturbate and get it up.. It stays up with stimulation, but if I do get a boner with no stimulation it dies quick and boom I lose my horniness.. Its like I'm horny while I have the boner then it goes down and I'm horny no more. ..

    Very likely PIED. Your brain is now used to a certain type of simulation, anything below that level of stimulation does nothing to you.

    Streaks of 2-3 weeks then nut. First streak was 45 days. Women in tight pants at the gym are now hard to ignore.

    I got the gynoid shape body now! :( And it keeps growing a little by little everyday! :( Soon I will have a really huge arse and skinny/muscular body, that's not a good look at all!

    Although my beard is still there and pecs are still defined.

    What do you mean now? As I understand, there are 3 body types when it comes to how your body stores excess fat; on upper body, on the hips and all around. Most men tend to fall on the 1st and 3rd category but there are quite many of the 2nd type. Maybe that is also how the case has always been with you and you started gaining weight now? A cousin of mine is also of that body type since he was a kid. Taller than me, normal beard, pumped arms etc but whenever he gains weight it all goes on his hips and thighs.

    Only way to know for sure if you have low Test is to get blood work done. How old are you? I'm 24 myself, and went to the doctor to get my levels checked when I started getting worried about my sex drive a few months ago. Test levels were in the high range of normal, he explained, which is not commonly talked about, that young adult men once they finish maturing sometime in their 20s, undergo a hormonal change. It's really just a hormonal stabilization with the final completion of puberty(yep, guys can have growth spurts into their 20s). From what he said, some guy's don't even notice it much, while other's can get depressed, libido decreases, erection issues, issues dealing with stress. The hormones balance out at some point, and the body finds a new normal, and libido rises again, though it's less crazy than in our "youth".......Fast forward myself a few months, and I'm honestly feeling better, my sex drive is higher, erections are better, though in part this may be to me going vegan. Maybe going on a whole foods plant based diet cleared out blockage in my veins in my dick?

    Severe obese people usually have lower T values, which further increases fat storage. A negative metabolism loop that can only be broken by the proper diet and mineral intake.

    Have you tried the snake diet?

    Even now, when I eat more calories than needed, the fat storage starts occurring mostly on my stomach. However, there is now an additional fat storage process happening with me. It's happening mostly around my arse. Everyday, at roughly around 15:00-16:00 pm, my arse gains a little bit of fat! It's been happening every day since around February time. Now my arse is beginning to look huge and I have a slim/muscular upperbody, which is a quite a bad look, to be honest.

    So I'm not sure why the second process of fat storage is happening at all. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, but I'm not confident they will want to help me as it's not a 'problem' that's causing me pain or its not detrimental!
