    Just wondering once you've rebooted are you supposed to get rock hard on thought or attraction alone?. Im on day 58 and Im starting to get moderate erections but I need to touch my penis to get them,(not masturbate) just contact like holding or shaking.

    I think a little physical stimulation is required withouth which its very difficult to get hard. i think it only happens in the teens and otherwise if u r extremely healthy

    Honestly? I've been through the reboot process several times now and have found on numerous occasions that after a certain amount of time, things start to work and Ive been getting erections spontaneously just by thinking about a certain girl or whatever.

    I'm 29

    I've been rebooting for about a year. Did the first 5-6 months with absolutely no PMO. Then started some M after that. I have never been able to consistently get an erection just by thought. Sometimes, I could get a 60-90% erection but that would go away in about 5 seconds. That was very infrequent. Back before I used porn (22 and below), I would get spontaneous erections almost every day, and they would be so hard that it was almost painful. They also lasted 60+ seconds and I'd have to think about something else to calm it down. I wish that would return but I don't think it will for me.

    On a positive note, I'm pretty confident that I can always get a rock hard erection just using my hand. I have been doing this to have sex the past few months, although now I am battling premature ejaculation.... which is better than ED!

    I'm 31 if that helps. If anyone has any tricks to get those rock hard, long lasting erections to just thought back, would love to hear it.

    I think everyone is different on this one mate.
    I'm 41, and 41 days into my reboot now. (I had been trying to reboot for about 9 months before this, with a lot of relapsing...)
    In the last week or so, my ED is completely gone and I actually can get a full erection from thoughts only - which I'm pretty damn happy about.
    There's no way I could have done this when I started this reboot. Things are definitely healing.

    My advice is give it time. We may all be on a different timeframe with our healing process, based on a lot of variables, but time will fix you. Just stay with it.

    Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to do nothing at all. ;)

    Do you get erections just from cuddling or making out? I can understand that not everyone gets hard through thoughts alone but seems like cuddling/making out should produce a hard on. I've been rebooting for a long time and have tried almost everything, from sleeping around with random girls, to finding a girl to just cuddle with. I don't get long lasting erections from making out or cuddling. If I do get hard, it is usually a semi and only lasts a short while (< 1 minute).

    I'm wondering why after such a long reboot that my body can't respond. I actually don't even mind having to use my hand to get it up, but even those don't last a long time.

    I can get erections from cuddling, making out or thought alone but they are not full, maybe somewhere from 50 to 60%. To get full ones I still need physical stimulation (though not much, but I still DO need it). However, I still don't wake up with full morning wood, no spontaneous erections, and my libido is still very low. So give it time, even if it takes a WHOLE LOT of time! Once you start getting strong morning wood and random erections, you will be able go get fully hard without touch.

    How long do your erections from making out last? I already get erections every night and about 3 mornings a week, depending on what sleep cycle i wake up in.

    Are they full hard erections or semis? If they are semis you still need more time. If they are 100% full, then I really think you should be able to get hard without touch.

    As for me, my erections last as long as I am making out or cuddling. For example, a girl slept on my knees a few weeks ago and I had an erection the entire time (though, I say again, it wasn't a full one, but it was an erection). And when I stop kissing or cuddling, my arousal levels quickly drop (because my libido is still VERY low) and my erections fade away with it.

    They are normally pretty hard (90-100%). The nocturnal erections last a long time. I still don't normally get hard without touch though.

    At 97 days PMO free, and 169 days overall, I do have morning wood, but they aren't 100% strong morning wood. I still don't get spontaneous erections, I have had NO wet dream, I definitely can't get hard without touching. I think not MOing will help me heal quicker. It could take me another 2-3 months before all that happens. But I am no longer worried about it. I got more important things to do.

    I really don't understand then. I mean, you didn't use your hands for nocturnal erections yet they are fully hard. Maybe it's just in your head, need to relax more.

    I really think you are suppose to get hard without touching. The only question is how long must you go. Look at other animals like a dog. It gets hard without touching. It isnt exactly like a dog can take its paw and jerk off.
