    Hey all, I’ve been dealing with porn addiction for over 30 years. I was exposed at the age of about 10. Found some old playboy magazines in a house my parents were looking to buy.
    From there I went to looking at the woman’s underwear section in the JC Penny’s catalog.
    Then posters of woman in bikinis and Lingerie in the poser section at a novelty store at a mall.
    Then came my best friend who showed me more porn magazines and really got me into it. Of course I was very interested.

    This led to a life of womanizing and 2 failed marriages.

    I never had a problem during sex before, I just thought I was cool because I could last long. Then I reached my late 30’s and things changed.
    I could no longer reach an orgasm every time I had sex. Still did not realize I had a problem with porn.
    Then I began to notice that after every time I watched porn I felt disconnected from the woman in my life and could not have an orgasm.
    I went to the Dr thinking it was an medical issues. They put my on Meds for low Testosterone they worked a little, but eventually that did not work either.
    The light finally came on and I saw that when I stayed away from porn my libido rises back up.
    I’ve been sober for a whole 4 days now and am hopeful for this to fix my life!

    Also looking for an accountability partner.

    Not being able to orgasm is what lead me here... It's the most (well, a top one anyway) fucked up experience I've ever had... Look deep inside yourself to find your 'accountability partner'... Unfortunately for us, it can get kinda slow in the 'old-folks' home. Be assured though, someone's probably reading what you put down...

    Porn robbed me of my boner for real sex. When I found this place I couldn't even keep a good boner while watching P and when I did ejaculate it dribbled out - sometimes I scarcely felt any O. Amazingly, once I stopped watching it for a few months I had no issues. :)

    most of the time, unless an uncontrolled diabetic, brain trauma, or nerve damage. this is all in our heads. mine anyway. my head on dopamine overdose. i have found that it takes time to heal. for me maybe because i am older, longer. i keep trudging.
