    Hello,

    When you were younger (18, 19, etc), were you able to get erection through thoughts alone? If so, how was the nature of erection, did it come on gradually until full or did it stand up immediately?

    Also, if you are older (35+), and have recovered from PIED, are you able to get erection through thoughts alone?

    I would get hard instantly just thinking of girls or sex.

    Are you recovered from PIED? Was getting hard instantly also part of your younger years?

    I would get hard instantly from thoughts alone up until the age of 28 but then my body and libido crashed and I've been trying to get it back ever since. The only time it came back was after two months of hard mode but it went away again after relapsing. I'm at about 35 days now and can get hard reasonably quickly from thoughts(though I'm trying to refrain from doing so) but I still don't 'feel' horny, there's not much sensation there - which I guess is the result of years of porn and tight grip.

    Exact the same thing here. I'm 35 yo now. Until 3 years ago I was very easily aroused and always horny. A magnet for girls, many people who have heard my stories called me a Casanova. But then due to naive excess of PMO, I've lost it. I'm fighting for my libido back, 143 days no PMO and 42 days hardmode today.

    By the way, if you happen to have links of threads of successful stories of men who recovered their libido I would be thankful to have some recommendations. Especially about how they rewired successfully. I'm making progress and having MW every day now.
     
  7. How serendipitous that you created this thread today.

    Today marked the most progress I've seen on my retention journey as I managed to get several full erections (100%) through thought alone. Not only were they full erections but sensitive as well. As soon as I let my mind wander they appeared fairly quickly and stayed rock hard for a good while.

    I'm 42 years old and closing in on 18 months of retention. Most likely I could easily get an erection via masturbation or sex but I haven't tried. My goal is to continue until I can get easy and consistent erections via thought alone.

    When I was a teenager, I would get erections just from thinking about girls/sex, talking to a girl, or even thinking about talking to a girl. I would go from flaccid to fully erect in probably about a second. In my twenties, I would drip pre-cum as I talked to one woman in particular.

    Now, I don't get erect even with a woman. So basically, my sex drive is gone. I get an uncomfortable tension when I look at women sexually that feels a little like horniness but not nearly as intense. Occasionally, I'll feel a twinge in my penis when I see something particularly sexual. That's about it. It sucks. And no, it's not PIED.

    I take it you had real sex experience in your younger years?
     
  10. It's the porn and mo which are the cause. Each pmo session prolong your recovery further and further especially with PAWS.

    Also beware of erection with porn that your body is so used to it...
    And without it your thing get smaller than a pinky finger.

    How'd this happen? Flatline? Was it from fapping too much to porn?
