I'm a 28 year old guy from Australia. I have been doing a lot of personal development work over the last 4-5 months and have made some good progress in various areas.
I thought I'd start posting here to get some support and track my progress as I give rebooting a go. I abstained from porn/masturbation late last year for about 5 weeks and didn't seem to have any problem (that I was aware of) until I went to stay at a girl's house I was dating and lost my erection once she started undressing me.
I have experienced ED with other girls and I seem to have a low libido generally. I wouldn't say I'm addicted to porn but I am willing to abstain from porn and masturbation to see if there are increases in my libido. I'm not sure if the issues I have are physical or psychological (I'm guessing its a mix) so I'm giving this a go.
After watching the videos on www.yourbrainonporn.com and doing some reading I decided to abstain again for 2 months. I'm now on day 19. When I started I seemed to notice an increase in libido which is now gone.
I seem almost totally unable to get an erection by manual stimulation but I wake up with morning wood and sexual urges. The rest of the day is pretty much void of sexual impulses. I do react to attractive girls- the feeling is wanting to connect with them emotionally (i think) rather than sexually. That's fine but I wonder if/when my sexual urge will return.
I have to say, at this point it is tempting to 'test' myself to make sure everything is still working but I know better than that! It's not easy, but it's a fun to know I'm getting into the challenging stage.
