    I haven't looked at porn for 8 days now since I used a prostitute for the first time and had a lot of ED. I hadn't had sex before. I don't think I have PIED that bad, because I looked at the test for PIED on Your Brain On Porn and it says you have it if you can't masturbate from stimulation alone without porn. The last 3 days I have masturbated to orgasm without any thoughts or fantasy at all, focusing solely on the stimulation. I can do that easily. So I don't know if I truly have PIED. I still want to give up porn forever though because I think it does have negative effects.

    The main improvement I want to see now is being able to get an erection from thought alone, which I currently can't do. Also I want my erections to last longer. I haven't really timed it, but probably after 10 seconds with no stimulation my erection would not be hard enough for penetration or getting close to not hard enough.

    At first I went 4 days without masturbation along with no porn, but I just don't think I can stop masturbating. I am masturbating now once a day, which is an improvement from the 3-5 times a day I was doing it when I was looking at porn.

    I have also been taking l arginine and pycnogenol together for over 2 weeks which may help.

    I'd disagree with this. The PIED test on YBOP isn't supposed to be taken as the be-all and end-all for the reason that the science on PIED still isn't conclusive. I was also in the same shoes as you. I could masturbate to orgasm using just my thoughts but getting an erection using just thoughts was impossible. I could also only masturbate to orgasm with death grip. How about you?

    I'm interested to know what your thoughts were? Scenes from porn films or thoughts about a girl or guy you like acting like a porn star? The fact that you had a lot of ED when in contact with a real human (prostitute or not) is a strong hint that you have PIED.

    I'd seriously consider giving up porn, masturbation and orgasm for at least 90 days. You'd be surprise what you can do when you put your mind to it and it's what communities like this exist to help you with. I think you'd be amazed at the difference after rebooting your brain.

    I masturbated focusing only on the stimulation. I didn't use any thoughts or fantasy. If I were to have thoughts I would think of a real life situation or women I have seen. I don't use a death grip.

    sounds like 80% PA, 20% PIED
