Hello everyone, I haven't posted in awhile, but here we go. The reason I have a question mark in my title is because of an incident that occurred the other day with my girl. I have been talking to her for about 2 months now and it is going well. However, I have had PIED issues her and almost a complete loss of libido. But it is not consistent. Let me explain. While I do believe that PIED is an actual thing, could it be linked to anxiety and the fear that you will not perform because of a past event linked to this issue? I would imagine the answer is yes, and from my experience I think it to be true. If you look at my day counter you will see that I have not completely eradicated this habit of porn and masturbation. However I have cut back on it by 90% considering I can now go days without even thinking about porn. I think this is because I recently made it to 23 days without PM which makes it easier for me to say no to the urge. I still have my flaws, but I am only human. Now, the other day me and my girl did this thing where we made out for like 20 minutes while listening to music. To no surprise at all, there was no movement from my guy downstairs, but I was into it. We went to my house and while I was scared that I would not perform, the anxiety was not as intense as before. We had sex, successfully, twice. Both times I had almost no erection problems and she enjoyed it. I felt good about it too because I was able to satisfy her without sildenifel (which I have been prescribed). It was all my mind, I felt like I was not thinking about anything else in that moment. The reason I question whether or not I am cured, which I am probably not, is because I still don't get hard sometimes when I cuddle with her, dance with her, sometimes even kiss her. So maybe it is a time thing? more time will heal this issue? I am confident that is what is happening. I realize this isn't a success story like others in this thread, but it is a success to me. Keep in mind that I am still anxious that I will not perform, in fact the next couple of days after this she was giving me head, I got a flimsy erection, but when it came time to have sex I went soft. So I guess I answered my own question. But I think it is mindset and simply being into it. BTW I am 22.
