Age 25 - Porn-induced ED cured, dating a lot more

Printer-friendly version

I'm 25. I realized it was a problem when I wasn't able to have a strong enough erection with 4 different women but I did when I masturbated to porn. Did some reading and realized I had porn induced erectile dysfunction.

I honestly thought my 90 day benchmark was going to be next weekend. I just checked today to see how many days were left and looks like I've done it! The question is - what next? Do I keep going? Can I go back to porn with a healthier mind and PMO on occasion as opposed to once a day before I took the nofap challenge?

Have I noticed changes in myself on NoFap? Yes, some good and some bad.

The good:

  1. I had porn induced ED before nofap. That's gone and that's a huge win!
  2. Maybe it's coincidence, maybe I've changed, but girls notice me a lot more now than they did pre nofap. I haven't been on these many dates in the last 90 days than I did the whole year before that. I think it may be due to that fact that I used to have control over when I would orgasm. Porn would put me in a fantasy land and I could satisfy myself every day without the need for human connection so I didn't make an effort to make those connections. Now, if I want that feeling that porn gave me I need to actually make an effort to interact with girls.

The bad:

  1. I've been on dates but only one of those connections ended up in the bedroom. So I've had one awesome orgasm in the 90 days. My craving for orgasms is cyclical. When I'm dating a girl (as I am now), the craving is low and so I can go on without fapping with ease. But when I'm not dating anyone, the craving is so high that I've gotten into online dating in an attempt to find a quick bang. So far, the online dating thing hasn't gotten anywhere and that's mostly because I haven't put in a huge effort as the next cycle of dating usually begins, but during those cravings I wonder if a shot of PMO wouldn't be the worst thing in the world?

All this to say, I never want to go back to the daily PMO I was on before because there are huge life changing benefits to the NoFap challenge. This community has been paramount in my now 91 day stretch of success! But is it safe and maybe even healthy, and I think I can control it, to fap say once a week?
