Age-37: Improvement in libido

Improvement in libido

YBOP Comment: This guy had plenty of real sexual experience which may explain why after two weeks no porn he was already seeing improvement in libido and porn-induced ED.

I was browsing the pegym site and stumbled to this term PIED. I googled it and realized i have some sort of pied going on. Libido is low and i get softer erections with my lady but when watching porn i get rock hard. Been watching porn like over 20 years.. so it has to be the reason for my problems.

I think my problems are not from the worst end the of porn addiction but they are big enough to get rid off. I don’t really know what are my symptoms and what is just “normal me”. But those that i see and feel are:
– a minor pied
– low libido
– i enjoy masturbating to porn more than i enjoy sex with my lady
– only random morning woods
– i’m pretty frustrated and i have mood swings
– sometimes it’s hard to find joy in normal things
– i feel depressed some times and i have difficulties to start doing some basic chores like paying bills or start cleaning the house.

Nobody likes cleaning the house or paying bills but i find it little weird that so basic tasks feel so annoying and hard to start doing :D

I don’t believe anymore, i know that i have porn addiction and it has to go! Already, I made a decision to stop this porn BS and gain my rock hard member back! I want to feel crazy horny with my lady. We’ve been together 15 years now and we have 3 kids but those are not my excuses for anything. I know it’s just me and my pathetic habbit to consume porn.

I’m glad i stumbled into term PIED that led me into this forum.

It’s now 5 days without porn and masturbation to be precise. I feel changes already.

I’m more horny but i don’t want to watch porn again, boner is easier (can be achieved without physical stimulation) and it lasts longer.


Dunno if i’m in some sort of minor flatline. Even though i’m horny i don’t want sex that bad. Luckily i have my lady i can have sex with when the need is unbearable. I’m sure she will help me rewire my rotten brains :) good thing is that all these years i have consumed porn, i still have decent vibes going on with my lady.

I really can imagine the situation for single guys fapping to porn without ANY CONTACT with a real world women and when sex starts to happen it goes dead :/ my member does not go dead but it’s harder to get erect and stay that way. Sometimes it’s solid rock if i have not fapped and watched porn let’s say for a week, but sometimes it’s a chore to get going even though i have not watched porn. It kinda goes up and down, which i think is not very uncommon when one is rebooting? Right?

I have been off porn in the past many times, from one week to a few months but i didn’t understand it has any effect in anything. But now when i’m intentionally rebooting and rewiring i can see the problems and how they are affected in my life and relationships. I also see the cure and better life beyond all this. That keeps me highly motivated.

Thanks for Gabe and all you other fine gentlemen and ladies for making my eyes pop open :)

Edit: perhaps this might also be my journal through this. I hope my story and crappy english is worth reading for some one.

About me.
-37 years old
-Been together with my common-law wife about 15 years.
-i have 3 kids
-been watching and fapping to porn over two decades (even to bestiality and all that crazy fetish shit)
– started to notice pied coz of penis enlargement exercises. I originally thought i injured myself doing exercises but having raging boner with porn and physical stimulation but having low libido and softer erections with my lady was kinda eye opener. Can i be injured if i can have rock hard boner with porn but not with my lady? I think not. When i stumbled to term PIED a week ago, that was the final thing that broke the camels back. That really made me realize i’m in the deep end of the septic tank of porn and i have to exit this train right now.

I hope i can rewire my brain so that i enjoy sex with my lady 100% and get back my motivation and energy to do things. I don’t like all these mood swings.

There’s no force that can stop this nofap -train. 12 days behind and life feels great. I will not list my benefits here about brain fogs and shit. My main focus is on libido, erection and sexlife with my lady.

Libido shows faint signs of recovery every now and then. Flatline seems to be on rollercoaster -mode, some day i don’t care about sex at all and next day i’m so fucking horny that i can jizz my pants using only my imagination. Things are turning better though. Erection with my lady is currently strong despite the low libido situation. I want more sex with my lady. When i was consuming porn we had sex like once a week or once in a couple of weeks. Well this week we have been sexing twice, tuesday and today. Perhaps we shall bone again at the weekend.

Sorry, this ain’t my sex journal. Point is that since i quit porn and fapping i have been wanting more sex with my lady. Rewiring is a cool thing. And since my erection seems to be back i will already call this success. Libido is still weaker than usually but i have strong confidence it will come back in full.

Woke up 4.00 and for ages had a strong long lasting morning wood. Not 100% like it used to be but still damn strong. Also, saw some naughty dreams. Nothing too exiting, just some random woman touching my johnsson through clothes, that’s all 

Both of those are ofcourse new signs of recovery and i find them satisfying as fuck!

Came back to home from work and got instant pulsating boner when i saw my lady. I could not control my boner, i tried to calm it down but it was useless. She kept looking down there all the time and was plushing. She went super crazy and was all over me and we just had to have sex. Blew my load all over her belly and thighs 

Why am i telling you this? Well this thread serves as a journal to me and perhaps someone might get some motivation to try nofap.

I have watched porn (all kinds of nasty fetish shit) over two decades like maniac. Lost my morning wood, wet dreams, libido and got PIED. I’m under 40 years old and have kids. Been together with my lady over ten years. Started nofap 12.12.21 and already i’m showing vast range of improvements. Biggest win is my erection which is about normal these days (already). Libido comes back in waves. It comes and it goes. I’m happier and more focused. I enjoy things. This is super nice.
