COMMENTS: A recent re-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."
Finally I can come out of the shadows and give something back to anybody that is struggling with recovering from PIED. I’ll start with a bit of history about myself. I’m 29 years old and have struggled with PIED since my first sexual experience aged 19. I used to watch porn on an almost daily basis from the age of 13/14 to the day that I heard about the NoFap community (15+ years!).
in my country we haven't got too many information about that addiction. Most people think it is normal. So let's begin. Right now, I'm 25. I don't remember, when I'm started watch porn. Anyway, I think that it was like most people, about age 13 I guess? Obviously, I didn't think about this subject in problem category. I thought - 'everyone doing that, so come on'.
It's been 60 days since I last fapped. This is still my first „attempt“ (I don't call it attempt but lifestyle change) and I must say it's not been that difficult for me. As I said in my previous posts, I think I made the connection in my head. After feeling miserable for at least 7-8 years I think it was time for me to change and now it's time to become the person I really want to be.
Pornography might be a difficult subject to discuss for many, but experts say it is causing huge damage to individuals and the community. There are calls for a parliamentary inquiry into the public health effects and societal harms of pornography. There are now calls for a parliamentary inquiry into the public health effects and societal harms of what's being described as a "public health crisis".
So it's been 90 days. I feel great. There's really too many benefits to list but the main ones that stick out is being able to operate good early in the morning even with minimal sleep, lowered social anxiety, and confidence.
Ireland is in the grip of a porn addiction epidemic with children as young as SEVEN being exposed to x-rated material online. We now rank fourth in the world for per capita porn use behind the UK, Canada and the US – and our obsession with it is driving couples apart and wrecking lives.
Thought I should share some positive news - I graduated college and will start my job soon. I’ve been PMO:ing daily since I was about 13. Mostly once or twice a day, but sometimes 3-6 times a day. I stumbled on yourbrainonporn.com and NoFap for the first time in 2010 - after reading up on porn addiction I could immediately relate the information I had gained to things happening in my own life, with my first girlfriend. I even told her about it, and that I wanted to quit.
One truth I have learned in past 9 months: If you are young & fat then stop fapping & get fit as soon as possible not for girls but for the confidence which will help you in life. 9 months ago I decided to quit porn cause I was turning mad because of no sex and porn addiction. I was always angry & irritated, like a rabid dog.
