Research confirms sharp rise in youthful ED

worried guy in bedroom with girl Young men today appear to be experiencing a sharp increase in ED (and other sexual dysfunctions) since the advent of streaming internet. All studies assessing young male sexuality since 2010 report historic levels of erectile dysfunction, and startling rates of a new scourge: low libido.

Study: Unusual masturbatory practice as an etiological factor in the diagnosis and treatment of sexual dysfunction in young men (2014)

J.Sexual.MedCOMMENTS: One of the 4 case studies in this article (reproduced below) reports on a man with porn-induced sexual problems (low libido, fetishes, anorgasmia). The sexual intervention called for a 6-week abstinence from porn and masturbation. After 8 months the man reported increased sexual desire, successful sex and orgasm, and enjoying "good sexual practices."

Condom-ED study + Kinsey Institute Spin

detective at workUS News reported that "Condoms Don't Prevent Erection, Study Says: New Research puts to rest an old, out-dated theory." The spin and misinformation are strong in this one! We can hear the condom manufacturers now, talking with the Kinsey folk (who did the study) saying, "Men think condoms cause ED. How can we get something into the press to convince them otherwise?"

Age 34 - PIED cured: The flatline cost me my job, and almost my life.

smiling coupleI have been a silent observer in panic mode since May of this year. I am 34 years old. I started looking at dirty pictures at a young age, but I never really delved into internet Porn until I was married and miserable. That was ten years ago.

Age 26 - Earning more, finances much improved, at ease with women

Age 18 - Straighter posture, less anxiety, procrastination, depression and stuttering

young guyI want to share my experience of a 50-day Streak. Relapse was due to extreme pain during the night after retention. Starting afresh and not giving up!

Age 29 - For those who needed proof...

lessons learnedI got totally addicted to porn at some point between my teenage years and now (I'm 29), and recently this came to a head as I became hooked on webcam sex, a pursuit that is just as pitiful, yet far more time consuming than looking at regular porn (hours spent with cock in hand waiting for someone willing to get naked for you, looking at your own disgusting image in the same light that most of your fellow users do).

Age 19 - Better Focus and Greater Mental Strength, more muscles and energy, stealthy looks from girls

I started PMO quite late compared to others, when I was 16-17 years old. Curiosity turned into an addiction and in the last 2 years I was using it as a crutch to cope with stress and negativity.

Now, I feel relaxed and natural talking with women without a hint of anxiety

young guyFirst off, I'd like to state that nofap by itself probably isn't a wonder-drug that will magically start fixing all your flaws, but it is a VERY important component to self-improvement.

University professor - "It's so worth it"

professorThis is my longest streak in about 9 years. I don't know if I'm even capable of expressing everything that freedom from PMO has meant but if I were to sum up, I feel like my mind and soul have healed.
