Cid...cheers mate. Thanks for the bump. I haven't posted here in a long while. Haven't really felt the need to. In terms of recovery from PIED, I have a suspicion I'm basically okay now. Porn temptations come and go. Sometimes PMO happens, but it is pretty rare now. I've had a trying couple days actually involving some peaking, but that is (as always) an emotional development. A work in progress. The reason I can't really say for sure regarding PIED is that I haven't had sex. It has been a damn long while. A lot of dating, but never really letting myself get close enough for sex. Half of it is high standards, and the other half is still being a little scared of it. Most of the women I meet are interested in long term relationships. I've never been too comfortable lying through my teeth to get laid...maybe I should hah. The past year and a half I've lived away from my home base. I'm moving back soon and am a bit disappointed that I haven't accomplished more goals throughout this time. Over the next couple months I'm going to try new things. I'm going to let myself have sex without worrying about anything else. Relationship stuff, erection, penis size, knowing what the hell I'm doing, etc. I have 3 different dates set up for the next 3 days. We'll see how it goes . It is frustrating to me that I usually need a few dates before sex is on the table. I just don't care enough to make that investment with most of these women I date. Anyway, I'll try upping my game and report back in. No more finding excuses to avoid sex . Time to dive in head first and damn the consequences.
