Age 26 – 12 Years of PMO, ED: But now I feel like a new man

I lost my virginity at 23 years old to a good friend, needless to say there were ED problems.

I’m now 26, I’ve had a girlfriend for 5 months and I’d just like to say that she was amazingly patient with me and I’m forever grateful.

It took me a good week and a half of sleeping together for me to be able to have a sustained erection. I had no idea what was wrong or why this was happening. My GF is hot, I mean easily a 9.5/10 so there should be no problem with my penis, right? But there was, so I decided for myself that I would stop PMO for a while. Not only did the sex get better, but I was able to perform normally with minor hiccups here and there.

Three months go by and I’m still on the right track, then I get laid off due to lack of work. I find myself sitting at home all day with nothing to do. I relapsed. There was a noticeable drop in performance, I used to be able to keep an erection with a condom on but not anymore. My GF is getting frustrated and I can tell. She thinks it’s something she’s doing wrong. So I man up, told her about my PMO relapse. She understood and told me that she didn’t care about the fact that I watch porn, “it’s just porn”, but it’s more than that. It’s an addiction, it’s a high and it’s doing something to me.

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a post by a redditor linking the Ted talk about your brain on porn, and it clicked. This new information just made soo much sense. I’ve sat down and watched it with my GF and she supports me in this endeavour 100%. It’s been 20 days since my last fap. I can perform while wearing a condom again and I plan to keep away from porn for a very long time.

I used to have it pretty bad, to the point where any stimulation would do nothing. The only time that would be the best to go about for sex was when I woke up during the night with an erection. Semi asleep sex was all we had for weeks but now when she’s turned on, I’m ready from the slight caresses that she gives me. It’s quite spectacular.
