Hi, hope I posted in the right section. If not, please correct me. I'm not sure where to begin but I'm gonna do my best to cover most of my story/problem. I'm a confident guy in my early 20s and I think I'm on this mysterious flatline and don't really know what to do. Let's start the story how I ended up writing this post. I actually never knew about such thing as flatline. Just researched it yesterday. I was a heavy porn user, masturbating almost every day sometimes couple times a day. I actually started early - probably primary school. I tried to quit a couple of times. It always went kind of like this - I quit for bout 2 weeks to a month (sometimes even less), lost my sex drive, then it always came back and hit so hard that I was back watching porn and jerking off. I had intimate contacts with girls throught my school years but no actual sex/penetration. Never had any problems getting hard. I did actually notice some problems described with porn addiction - hard time trying to focus, hard time learning, feeling down/depressed, thinking about sex all the time. It got better and worse but always was there. I haven't watched porn/masturbated for about a week now. I don't feel like masturbating/watching porn at all and unfortunately after my last sex session - I don't feel like having sex either even though I want to do it. It's very weird. I'm attracted to my girl, I want to spend as much time as I can with her and pleasure her so I think not having a desire for her isn't the issue. I just feel like having sex but my body doesn't... I met a girl less than a year ago, we started going out maybe a month ago and ended up in bed this week. Before we decided to sleep together I was having very strong erections when I was with her. I was only experienced with, let's say handwork and she told me she had only 1 (quite bad) experience so we both were pretty stressed out. I was doing my best to be calm, guide her but still saw that she was very anxious (even though I made sure that she 100% wanted everything with no pressure). She came once during foreplay but didn't really want to do much for me, which was first time that night I felt not 100% hard (even though I had an erection). Of course I didn't want to force her to do anything so I went with it. Her vagina was very contracted, it was very hard to penetrate her as we tried multiple positions. Afterall the harder we tried, the worse it got. I lost it for a while, condom slipped off and there was that. I didn't want to give up that easy. It took me couple minutes to get hard again (very anxious at this point and trying not to show it). I ended up stimulating her clit with my boy and we both came, but it took me quite longer than usual. Afterall we were both satisfied. And now all my questions: Am I even flatlining or is it some other issue? Have any of you been in a similar situation? What was quitiing P/M like for you? How long it took to recover? When should I expect to regain my sex drive/morning woods/random boners etc.? Should I have sex or take things slow and clear my mind for a while? I'm pretty into this girl, wouldn't want her to feel unwanted. I realise that it's gonna get better sometime in the future but I'm still anxious cause I don't want it to destroy our relationship and I don't want to underperform. So far things are good but what about next time and the time after that etc. I bought a pack of them skinny lubbed condoms - maybe they will make a difference. I'm not sure if I should try them immidiately or just take things slow for a while. If you read so far - thank you and please share your valuable advice. Cheers and good luck.
