Sex on the Brain: What Brain Plasticity Teaches About Internet Porn (2014), Norman Doidge, MD

Hungarian ReviewExcerpts: "We are in the midst of a revolution in sexual and romantic tastes unlike any other in history, a social experiment being performed on children and teenagers... What clinicians don’t know much about, yet, is how we shall help teenagers, whose sexual tastes are being influenced by porn, because this level of porn exposure is quite new. Will these influences and tastes turn out to be superficial? Or will the new porn scenarios deeply embed themselves because the teen years are still a formative period?"

Age 28 - Mild PIED cured in 35 days. Erections are very strong.

Happy coupleThe reason I came to NoFap is that, about 35 days ago I was with a girl that I really liked and I had ED issues. While feeling down afterwards I discovered NoFap, YBOP and PIED. This weekend I was with that same girl again after about 35 days of NoFap.

Porn-induced ED - The power of honesty and salsa

Salsa partners dancing I'd like to tell my story to those who are reading. I'm only writing this hoping to inspire you, main thing is DON'T QUIT, what they teach in AA is the only way to succeed and get clean is being absolutely DESPERATE to do so... When a friend of mine first told me of nofap (close to 2 years ago) i thought it was a fuckin joke.

Age 20 - ED: Was cured once, got engaged, porn addiction caused ED, I broke up with her

unhappy couple in bedFor a decade I've been PMO-ing 1-2x every day and eventually it caught up with me. I've always had to deal with PE but with my last girlfriend (actually fiance) I had my first bitter encounters with ED. Of course it took its toll on our relationship and we eventually we broke up.

Age 26 - ED cured: Life is just amazing now, so many benefits.

lovers' hands in bedI'm roughly about 150 days in and I cannot believe how much my life has changed over the last year. This has been the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has been so worth it. My life has changed for the better in so many ways, that sometimes I can't quite believe I've done it.

Interview with BlackWhiteGuy

Age 23 - 300 days: My tastes now are much more vanilla & straight forward

300 days in to porn free and I'm in a completely different brain state. For a while I have been unsure whether my sexuality influenced the type of porn I looked for, or whether the porn use was influencing my sexual feelings away from porn.

Age 26 - 30 days of NoFap cured my Delayed Ejaculation

I had been fapping regularly for the last 13 or so years (I'm 26 now). When having sex, I would have always have moderate to severe DE -- it would either take way too long to finish, or I wouldn't be able to finish at all.

I think NoFap should make it clear that it's porn addiction that we are fighting, more so than masturbation.

When I first came here a year ago the longest streak I had was 32 days or so. I quit because I just didn't see the point. I had quit masturbation and orgasm but not porn itself. It wasn't until recently when I discovered that I understood the true effects that porn was having on me.

Age 17 - Feel much better, more energy, think clearly, learned to face my problems

young guyWow it's crazy how time flies. When I started this 90 day challenge on hard mode, I never would have thought I would be able to reach 90 days. Its hard to believe I reached 90 days. I am a 17 year old male and started masturbating and watching porn at the age of 13. I have been fighting this addiction ever since.

Age 25 - Atypical porn user fixes PIED with intermittent masturbation

happy guyCOMMENTS: Keep in mind that guys who didn't start early on internet porn typically recover from PIED far more easily, so this man's advice may only work for those in a similar situation. 

I've come here to share my success story in the hopes that it may help other guys out there with this problem.

Age 20 - Recently experienced sex for what felt like the first time. Happier, more social

happy coupleI was dealing with depression and severe anxiety... I'd just moved to a different state and had no friends. I was masturbating an average of three times a day (my porn habit started around age 12-13. I'm 20, almost 21 now). I played runescape twelve hours a day. For the past few years I had thoughts of suicide a few times a week.
