    Hey y’all. I’m a 31 year old male with a porn addiction and mild case of PIED(porn induced erectile dysfunction) I can still have sex with women and climax but it seems to be more difficult and sometimes I can’t get an erection. I am also on an antidepressant which can cause sexual side effects so I am not sure what exactly is causing the ED but from reading all of your stories I can definitely see how devastating porn can be for your erections.

    On top of all of this, I am trying to overcome fetishes for transgender women and cuckold situations. It’s not that I have a problem with trans people or people who are into cuckolding, I just don’t feel that these fetishes are a part of who I am or who I want to be. These types of porn are pretty much what I exclusively use for masturbation and sometime fantasize about while having sex.

    I’m very reclusive and I think it makes it a little more challenging with no one to keep me in check so I decided to join this community for a little bit of accountability and I’m hoping that sharing my story might help someone in a similar situation.

    I don’t know if my addiction is severe enough to be sharing with this community so I hope that I do not offend anyone who has it way worse but I feel that it’s a problem in my life and I want to see if I can beat it(no pun intended.)

    I’ve dabbled in abstaining from PMO(porn, masturbation, and orgasm) before but I’ve never taken it too seriously. I think the longest I’ve gone was 15 days.

    So anyways, today, 4/16/2018, marks the first day of my journey. I will try to provide weekly updates on the “effects” of abstaining from PMO and how I am doing on overcoming these fetishes(hopefully it’s possible) just in case my situation is similar and perhaps useful to someone who reads it and to remind myself to stay committed to this.

    My goal is 90 days (7/15/2018)

    Wish me luck.

    Hi PIoneer, welcome to the forums! No amount of PIED is natural, so people of all stripes who struggle with PIED, even if it is mild as in your case, are welcome here. Rebooting should entirely clear it up. Just be consistent with your streak, have a plan ready for when the urges come, and never give up no matter how many times you reset.

    In the meantime, improving your life in other ways is always a good way to keep your mind focused and away from porn.

    Wish you the best with your reboot, and please keep us updated!
