I am a 44 year-old male who discovered masturbation at the age of 12 or 13 and did it almost daily ever since. It has affected my life in many ways over the years and it was only recently that I realized what a profound case of NO sex drive I had developed. A beautiful girl could strip in front of me and I would not become aroused. I am currently on TRT and my hormone levels are very good but my libido just never returned.
My wife and I have had no intimacy for years, and we both accepted it. It was only in the past few weeks that I determined my daily habit might be problematic :) and quit cold turkey on February 7, 2014. Now on Day 44, I am flatlined but have noticed some nice erotic dreams the past few nights. Until now, it has been 15+ years since I actually had a sexual dream in which I awoke erect. It feels pretty good.
Yesterday, for the first time in years, I felt a brief moment of spontaneous horniness at the sight of a beautiful woman. Imagine that - feelings of desire at the mere sight of a woman! It sounds crazy but to me it is progress!
Anyway, I have been flatlined since about day 5 or 6, and only awake with a erection once or twice per week. My lady and I have intimate time where we kiss and touch each other, but nothing beyond that! I am determined to stick to my plan.
thank you guys for this amazingly supportive forum!
