    A large percentage of guys watch porn.

    The percentage of young guys with ED is increasing but nowhere close to the percentage of guys watching porn.

    Do you think some guys are more susceptible to PIED? What could be the reason behind this? Could this have to be with hormonal differences (like high/low testosterone).

    There is a whole host of factors at play: age when porn consumption first started. frequency of use, how long one has been using, amount one has escelated. And yes physical and hormonal predispositions are probably also a contributing factor. Some people's brains may be more sensitive to dopamine, some people's brains may create learning pathways for porn faster. You won't find any of this in medical journals of course, because few people are interested in this. So this is all speculation. But it is logical that this would be the case.

    As to whether it has to do with T or not, I am not sure as I don't really know much about the relationship between the neurotransmitters that create the problem and T. Dopamine is the main culprit here, but T could be a contributing factor. But I don't know enough to give you an educated guess.
