    You cant get an erection with a girl. I realize this sucks but is there a positive to this situation? I bet there is! Here me out!

    For me, I have ascertained that the words of Epicurus are true!

    If thou wilt make a man happy, add not unto his riches but take away from his desires.

    You desire an erection with a real girl! That desire is good! It is healthy but porn has taught you that the desired outcome of life is to bang many women and to feel like a stud in such fashion. I say unto thee, that it is far better to find one lady and cultivate a relationship with her. A deep abiding relationship. Use your sexuality to tease her. Take things slowly to whet her appetite. A lot of guys on this forum go from girl to girl! Thats a big mistake in my opinion and does not lead to lasting happiness. Porn has done far worse things to us than make our dicks numb. It has stolen our ability love and appreciate one woman we love! That is what we need to get back more so than even the erection!

    because of this "curse" we are able to see this blessing. We can see that chasing tail is not what leads to happiness. After all, our porn habit gave us this great sense of shaem and this lasting physical problem. How much more of a problem would we have if we had sex with all the women we wnated to have sex with? not only that, but how much havoc would we wreck in their lives? Perhaps this "curse" is God or natures way of protecting ourselves from ourselves!

    Epicure was the man. Too bad people who call themselves "Epicurians" nowadays are just doing the opposite of what Epicure preached.

    Ted, are you really 450 days into reboot? That's impressive, congratulations.

    Porn addiction itself is a lesson - a message from deep within.

    It's a blessing, in a strange way, because I've been able to deal with a whole bunch of painful things (mostly around self-esteem and coping) while thinking I was facing down porn addiction. It helped me realize I was wasting my life, and gave me a framework to change things.

    It's all a blessing. Even ED/PE, which is helping me realize that sex is intimacy not performance.
