Hi all, here is my story. I have been using porn in one form or another since I was about 13 years old. I am now 32 years old and was still a user up until 3 days ago. The porn progressed from magazines, then to online softcore pictures and then finally online hardcore videos. I never got into the real extreme stuff but always felt the need for new content (I had this huge collection of videos on my PC but I rarely went back to them, I was always looking for new stuff online). Throughout this 20 years of use, I probably have not gone more than 7 days at any point without looking at some sort of porn. I have thought about trying to stop in the past but rationalized that I didn't need to by telling myself "all guys look at porn and most of them are fine so what is the point of stopping, I'm not doing myself any harm." Boy was I wrong. I did not fully realize this until 4 days ago when I stumbled upon a website discussing the topic of porn induced ED. As I was reading about this, I thought to myself "oh my god, this is me!". Typically what would happen is I would meet a girl I liked, sex would be OK for the first couple months and as time went on I would find it difficult to maintain an erection during sex until eventually I would not even be able to get and erection at all. I would chalk this up to the fact that my partners weren't attractive enough and therefore it was time to move on and try another at which point I would break up with the girl. I destroyed numerous relationships with this thought process without ever realizing the true cause of my ED. The fact is all of my ex girlfriends were very attractive and it wasn't them at all, it was my problem the entire time. I finally came to this revelation after reading about porn induced ED, I had all the signs and symptoms. I feel very grateful for coming across this information when I did as I started dating a girl I REALLY like about 2 months ago. We have only attempted to have sex once (with a condom) and I was unable to maintain an erection. Another issue I have is that I have never been able to maintain an erection while wearing a condom and I feel absolutely nothing while wearing one. Always just thought condoms weren't for me but after reading about porn addiction I found out that it can cause the sensation in your penis to become decreased while having normal sex. So I decided 4 days ago to stop porn and masturbation altogether for the rest of the year. However, because I am in a new relationship I cannot go without orgasm, the girl will think I'm asexual, plus its too early in the relationship to tell her about my problem, she would probably run in the other direction. So I am here to write about my progress and keep myself on track. Its been 4 days so far and no issues as of yet, I have absolutely no urge to look at porn now that I know how damaging it has been during the course of my life. Hopefully I can stay strong as I know things are probably going to get tougher as time goes on. I will post every few days and any support would be appreciated. I can't tell you how excited I am to break this habit and finally have a REAL sexual experience with someone I care about. I can honestly say I have never had good sex during my entire life and porn is the reason.
