Age 23 - Watching porn with girlfriend led to PIED, quitting healed me, flatline improving

Porn basically destroyed my previous relationship. Me and my ex gf had been together for five long years, and porn was constantly present in them. Not only because I did like it, but also because my ex sort of made me indulge in it. We were both into the same kind of things, and she actually enjoyed watching porn while having sex from time to time. But that was a big mistake for me.

The Dual Control Model - The Role Of Sexual Inhibition & Excitation In Sexual Arousal And Behavior (2007)

COMMENTS: A new discovery. The first paper to report porn-induced ED and porn-induced low libido. In an experiment employing video porn, 50% of the young men couldn't become aroused or achieve erections with porn (average age was 29). The shocked researchers discovered that the men's erectile dysfunction was "related to high levels of exposure to and experience with sexually explicit materials." The limp men had spent a whole of lot of time in bars and bathhouses where porn was "omnipresent," and continuously playing. The men explained that "high exposure to erotica seemed to have resulted in a lower responsivity to "vanilla sex" erotica and an increased need for novelty and variation.

Age 14 - Reduced social anxiety, More focus, Increased confidence & energy, I also get more attention from girls

I just completed 90 days of NoFap. My current age, as the title suggests, is 14. I started NoFap because I want to become the strongest version of myself. So, let's get to the benefits. Well, the thing is that I can't tell you that I had sex with girls because of obvious reasons, but there are some clear benefits I've experienced since I started. The most important ones are:

My confidence is completely at a whole new level

I am quite sure that today is 6 months since I started, if I am correct. I started on November the 20. I never really thought that I would make it this far, haha. Oh well, it doesn't stop here, but I am still proud of myself. Keep going to everyone who is having a tough time.

Age 23 - Porn-induced ED cured. It's so nice to speak, man to woman, and to build relationships

A quarter of a year, wow! It can be done. Never give up people! That said, I'm still feeling massive urges. I have to battle myself daily not to give in. My latest mind trick is "you've hit 90 days, you can do it! Just have one binge and then you'll be fine." This is lies and deceit. Do not listen. When you feel yourself wandering from the track, remind yourself why you were on it.

Age 22 - Never felt so confident, Happier, Bounce back quickly from rejection, I'm standing up for myself

I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever go four full months without PMO. In high school and the first three years of college I did it once or twice a day. I never knew what I was truly missing! Here are some of the benefits:

Age 24 - I now handle anxiety attacks in a second without any problem, No more mood changes, More motivated & present, Less introverted

I am a 24 year old male. I've been mastrubating since I was 12 or 13. First I used my imagination, then came high speed internet and of course porn.

Now I don't know if I was ever a porn addict, I can't recall watching any really messed up shit, at least not for pleasure and excitement, but today I don't consider myself a porn addict.

Actually, during this last streak, today counting 39 days, I watched porn several times and it was once or twice I got aroused, and that was to that sensual porn, where they act like it's intimate and stuff, which is not that bad.

Porn-induced ED: Shocking, because I can't remember the last time I went 2 rounds in one day!

I found out about PIED late last summer in July due to not being able to perform and make love to my girlfriend. It sucked! I felt so horrible and humiliating making her think that she wasn't good enough. Until I did almost the same thing all us men did and went online searching what the problem was and then I read about PIED and came across Gabe's videos.

Age 18 - Female: I came for the first time without using porn or any visual/audible stimulus

I came for the first time without using porn or any visual/audible stimulus, just from my imagination and focusing really hard on my pleasure. For background information, I'm an 18 year old female. I've been watching porn since late middle school/early high school or so. While I wouldn't say I had/have a porn addiction, I desensitized myself to the point that I couldn't cum without the visual stimulus.

Age 21 - Meditation + Nofap = great results with social anxiety

I´ve always been the extreme shy, sad guy with social anxiety. Never talked to anyone, and was afraid of every possible social interaction, even calling the pizza guy. I failed several classes in college because I was too afraid to talk to people and couldn´t get into a class group.

Age 23 - Higher energy, Girls still drawn to me, Face to face social anxiety is mildly better but phone call anxiety is gone, Better at dealing with negative moods

Before I started this challenge I wondered if the benefits of NoFap would kind of peak around the like 20-30 days mark and if doing it any longer was really worth it or just a waste - but I can safely say that the benefits have kept increasing all the way up to the 60 day mark, and I expect them to continue to do so up until 90.
