    Hey all,

    I just joined this forum after months of contemplation... wanted to share my story in case anyone can relate/offer advice. I'll shorten it up to not waste anyone's time.

    Growing up, I was pretty shy, experienced bullying, and lived in a really strict and somewhat abusive household (no sexual abuse). Between religious beliefs against masturbation, general anxiety, and a really late-blooming sexual progression, I never masturbated until I was 22. I never had an orgasm until I was 19, even though I've had sex before (with a condom). I noticed my libido was through the roof and I realized my girlfriend at the time didn't like feeling like I was "in the mood" all the time so I basically practiced masturbating until I was successful at the age of 22.

    Fast forward to now, I'm 25. From age 22, I pretty much masturbate every day, occasionally twice a day. For the last six months to a year, I've noticed my libido and overall "edge" has been on a decline, I habitually waste time masturbating, and worst of all, I no longer get morning wood. This has been going for a while, to the point where I now know I need to do something about this. I was wondering if anyone here has experienced anything similar with morning wood, and if NoFap has helped get it back?

    Additionally, I wanted to know anyone's thoughts on the potential adverse health effects of NoFap. Specifically, I know many people have probably read the whole study which concluded a relationship between ejaculations per month and lower rates of prostate cancer... but I'm no doctor.

    Anyway, thanks for reading, and looking forward to any feedback. Thank you!

    what you are experiencing is called Porn Induced Erectile Dysfunction—basically desensitization caused by. too frequent masturbation and porn consumption. By quitting porn and masturbation, you can fix it though it may take time. Read up in the forum on a Reboot.

    as far as prostate cancer I don’t think you’re in the at-risk group at 22. Once you get your mojo back, just have sex instead of jerking off—same benefit.
