    A little background, I’m gay and have mostly taken the submissive position because of my PIED.

    At Day 40, I had a date. The date was mediocre, but we had been talking about having sex for a while. After dinner we went to his place, started with foreplay, and was able to perform!!!

    I notice I kept my erection longer. Though it would go down, I could get it back quickly.

    It was amazing.

    Congratulations!! Must've felt great!

    I'm still suffering from PIED...I really hope I'm not a long rebooter, my relationship won't last that long :(

    Do you have any tips to recover from PIED?

    I wouldn't say my PIED is 100% healed, and I don't have any tips or tricks, but I did notice a few things from this experience:

    First, due to my extended break from PMO, I was very aroused and craved physical connection. In the past, I would sometimes be elsewhere in my head or just not that into because I was already using P.

    Second, I didn't maintain a full erection the entire time. In fact I would lose it and get it back. And I would get it back by doing things that aroused me which aroused my partner which aroused me even more.

    Third, and this was the most important observation I noticed, I didn't think too much. Sometimes I'd get so obsessed with thoughts about staying hard that of course I wasn't in the moment, and I'd go limp. This time I was in the moment, and not in my head. I stayed relaxed and confident, and when it was time to perform, I was able to, and it was amazing.

    I think a big problem is that struggling with PIED creates performance anxiety, and sometimes we don't know where one ends and the other begins. If you feel confident you won't relapse, I suggest you do the Simple PIED Test in the Getting Started manual. I think that's a great way of learning if you're suffering from more than just PIED.

    Good luck in your journey!!!

    I'm sorry to be intrusive, but did you use a condom? If so, any complications?

    Not intrusive, that's actually a good question. I did not use one, so whether I would have, or could even now, maintain with one on is uncertain at the moment.

    I get it. I used to get horrible anxiety when there was possibility of sex. I had had so many bad experiences. To this day I still feel relieved if there is no possibility of sex. What helped me is to make visualization efforts. See link below. Very powerful to forget bad experiences:
