    Come on that is rubbish you're talking here.

    People here have gone far longer than 94 days and it's not done them any harm, if anything they've improved. Just look at tobias after going a full year.

    And as far as I know, he didn't jet off to Tibet to become a monk because he lost interest in sex.

    Well specifically, what are your thoughts on JP and his results? Feeling asexual is one thing, but the lack of semen is really unnerving for me. Especially considering he never had that problem before or since. And for what it's worth as soon as he started orgasming regularly again libido and ejaculation returned.

    Curious to hear your take on it.

    tsmith, what he has is temporary. Not everyone can recover in 90 days. This is not linear.

    No, it wasn't about recovering at the point. His ED went away after a few months with some relapses peppered in.

    And his brain has healed to the point he still doesn't PMO, or even peek and he left the forum a while ago.

    So forget about linear vs. non-linear recovery because he recovered just fine. He just had some pretty undesirable results when he went from orgasm rebooting to a long abstinence run.

    I'm not a doctor but my guess is his body re-absorbed the semen into other areas such as his brain and bloodstream.

    Aussie mentioned that his load was huge after 94 days but he could easily been edging during the time which re-directs the semen back into the testicle area.

    Common sense should tell you that it would be more normal for the semen to be stored in other areas of the body otherwise too much would place pressure on the prostate. The body is intelligent and knows what to do with itself.

    Conserving the semen isn't an unnatural phenomenon

    I've heard that theory before and it makes sense. Excess semen has to go somewhere. But still, I can't understand why he didn't have a normal and healthy nut at the very least.

    i know it's not physical because I had one quite successful reboot before.

    My theory is that I am still recovering from the wet dream and my refractory period is just still that long.

    I'm doing OK atm. I've been really busy which helps a lot in the reboot. Too busy to post here much, or to join the phone conferences, Sorry about that guys. I do come on every so often when I'm studying and I post a little bit. I haven't had any urge at all to masturbate for 11 days, or to watch any porn but I have peeked a little at pics today. It wasn't nearly long enough to be called a relapse but I've got to be careful. Funny though, I wasn't aroused, I actually found most of them quite boring. Sure I could've kept looking for a pic that did arouse but tbh I just couldn't see the point. Like, if I'm not aroused, why bother looking at stuff to become aroused. And then what, exactly? Just go and do some work, stupid Al.

    Ah good man, yea im starting to pick myself up again now I have no urge to watch, but stumbled across a certain music video that is quite popular in the uk with some nude scenes in it, peaked for a few seconds then shut it off, felt a little bit hazey afterwards but just had a tidy up and shit then felt better. I feel if I get beyond a week or two ill be in a good situation, I have a few goals I want to work on so it should keep me occupied.

    Good luck preachers!

    Feeling better in social situations now again, the two wet dreams really had a bad impact on my capability to be normal in social interactions. It was the worst a week ago, where I couldn't look anybody in the eyes, where I'd whisper instead of speaking and where my voice would crack from time to time.

    Now I'm getting more confident again, and when I think about it, it just can be some physical reaction that affects my mood so much. This cannot be psychological.
    Maybe still too much dopamine release during a wet dream?

    All I know is wet dreams throw me off my course to being sexually healthy. I have to avoid them at all costs. Any tips?

    I've never heard of a wet dream affecting anybody in this manner

    Sounds to me like a self-fulfilling prophecy. You think an orgasm/ wet dream sets you back, so it does. And from there it took you two weeks to shake this idea

    I would bet my bottom dollar if you forgot about the WD and went about your day it would have no impact or a minimal one at best.

    Wet dreams are a natural phenomenon mate, you have nothing to worry about.

    I am having more sensitivity towards girls now. When they smile towards me, I get a really warm feeling. Though, I think my libido is still low. Still having headaches, but they are so much lower in intensity than before. Some days I am so shy and can't look anyone in the eyes. Other days I am really social and don't have any trouble speaking what I want.

    Maybe after the withdrawals are gone and I regain my libido I may notice more confidence coming.

    I don't think so.

    It is an observation, not a prophecy. I did not think they would have such an impact.
    But they do.

    I still have ED so there is most likely still something wrong with my reward circuitry, and the release of hormones.
    It gets better after every WD, but only slightly. I would like to avoid them so I don't get these setbacks so often.

    Did you guys ever experience a dream that was like fantasizing?

    This morning right before waking up I dreamt that I'd go down on a celebrity, and when I woke up I thought I had fantasized this while lying in my bed. And I felt guilty.
    Good news is that I had a nice boner in the morning.

    Frankly I still don't know if this was a dream or if I was already half-awake and fantasizing.

    I just had a terrible nightmare. It wasn't the content of it, but the way I felt. It was just me edging to a some porn. But I felt so bad and devastated like all my progress was gone.
