    Just saw a video about how dopamine is behind TV binge watching. That was something i did prior to my sexual dysfunction and now...I barely have a desire to really get into a TV show. So you really think it's low dopamine receptor signaling from porn stimulation? I was in doubt (and worry) it'd be a venous leak but now this seems like it almost kind of confirms it from this symptom alone.

    Test: Can you get an erection to porn?

    Can you get an erection with just another human and no porn?

    If you can get one with porn, but not with a person, you have PIED.

    Can't get an erection to porn or anything. Rarely do I get erections. I can masturbate but it's a weak orgasm and not very pleasurable.

    But I'm saying this can be an alternate method of seeing if your brain has undergone porn-induced brain changes. Not just the erection test.

    Did you fap a lot to video porn before this happened? Some of us have done that and gotten to where even the porn won't do it any more.

    If you did that, a reboot can be a good test.

    If you didn't do that, it might be time to check with a doctor. At your age, I could get hard just thinking about the chance of sex.

    Who did that exactly? Anyone here along with you? I checked with 2 doctors and nothing was found wrong.

    For me i get erection to both porn and woman, thinking about ladies or just a phone conversation is enough to get me hard. my problem is most time when i try using a condom my dick goes off before i can put it in. so what i do is rush, enter without a condom, as long as i can penetrate then i can have a enjoyable sex. but that's not what i wanted. it wasn't use to be so, i remember i could stay hard for as long as i want till i'm ready to penetrate some years back. but it's all change about 3 years ago. i will get soft just before i'm able to penetrate. And i after alot of research and reading people's stories on here i released my long years of using porn and masturbating has led to this and that's why i'm rebooting and this is my first streak ever and my 20th day

    That's actually where I am right now. I just do stuff to my wife and leave my penis alone. Just giving it a break for 3-4 months. (Or longer)

    I know many will say, "everyone's different," but I strongly believe porn causes ED, hence PIED. I know some of my issues are normal due to aging. I'm a 46 year old, otherwise health male. I understand and expected small changes as I aged. Back story: I currently serve in the Army. Like a number of my brethrens, I've had multiple deployments away from my wife and family starting in 2002. During those deployments, I used porn as a way of reducing stress. When I returned home, I didn't initially experience ED. I'm not sure if it was the excitement of being home, but again, initially there was no problem. Unfortunately, once reality settles and I began to reconnect with my family, I experienced challenges. Hell, we all did. Before I could reset myself, I found myself back in theater, back to porn. Each deployment got worst, and each return got worser. I eventually needed medication for an erection. I returned from my last deployment in 2015. I've had multiple relapses since, but improvements along the way. About 6 months ago, I went about 45 days of no PMO. It was the first time in years I'd had sex without the assistance of a pill. In fact, sex was so natural it scared me. It was like I was in my 30s again. Unfortunately, bad habits are not easy to escape. I slipped. It's taken me a while, but a few days ago, I again had sex without assistance. Erections with my wife come naturally most of the time. So I'm absolutely certain 90 days will not be enough for me. I'll need more like 120 days to reset/reboot. But PIED is real. Anyone thinking otherwise is kidding themselves.

  10. I agree it has to be porn. I was experiencing ED at 24 and up until NoFap I always used the pill to get hard. Now I'm able to have sex without the pill but I still have trouble maintaining a steady erection. Im currently at day 81 i know it's most likely going to take me longer than 100 for a full reboot.

    Stop watching porn at all costs and do not try to test your body needs to heal all the lust and pmo has fucked up or bodies I knew it was porn because I was losing erections to regular porn after awhile and started looking at shameful things to even get an erection still not even fully hard one and I would finish so quick but now after stopping masturbation and not seeking any type of porn all be it Instagram and Snapchat my erections have been coming back slowly especially at night and in the morning after 8 months stop pmoing do not test it out I checked with a urologist who said I had low T in 2015 i refused to go on trt and stil continued to fap here and there but finally looking at this forum in 2017 to stop for 3 months started in March and in May went to go see my family doctor who I trusted who suggested not to go on trt told me that my testosterone was normal he said give your body time to heal and rest he said it was more likely stress and that was very telling because all this anxiety and fear shame was from pmo so I owe it to myself stop you do to porn just inhibits lust and that brings suffering on your body mind and soul

    What do you mean finishing quick? Do you mean the orgasm is quick? I suffer from where I would masturbate with a semi erection and the orgasm would just be quick and not slow, pleasurable and enjoyable. Does this make sense for PIED?

    I'm still struggling. This requires a lifestyle change for me.

    Yes orgasm quick and of course it does you gotta be apart of your own rescue to continue to do the same thing and to expect different results is instanity and self inflicting suffering it is worth it I continue you to fight but I know each day is a day that I didn't give up on myself by watching porn or masturbation and more grateful and appreciate life more

    Yeah I can orgasm, but the orgasm is just not pleasurable. It's like an urge in me that keeps going and going...it sucks so much because I feel stuck in a cycle of pain. I wish that I had someone to talk to who can help me. I feel helpless. :-(

    No you're right. it's just hard because I've become dependent on what has become something that has been reduced to a little quick orgasm that's so boring and makes me feel like shit in the end. Everything else in life unfortunately seems so boring (in reality it's not) and that's what dopamine receptor downregulation has done to my brain.

    I'm in the same boat my friend. I can get an erection during foreplay and other sexual acts but when it comes to the condom I lose my erection gradually. It's also the reason why i'm pursuing NoFap.

    Yeah I use to feel like that but giving up pmo gave me time to do new things like cook and go mountain biking and read I get fufilment in all these things you can find others things to do that are both productive and fulfilling once you stop you start becoming more open minded and change perspective on life I'm still working on all this nor do I have all the answers figure out what works for you

    Why don’t you just stop all pmo for 90 days and see what happens? Until you do that you won’t know the answer.
