So, I tried abstaining from PMO in April 2016 and it's been a success. I got my errections back, eventually started dating and met my girl in August 2016. http://www.yourbrainrebalanced.com/forum/threads/pied-and-escorts.33763/ I've been with my girlfriend for 8 months now and she moved in with me 5 months ago. It's good. She is 22 years old, I'm 40. Her sex drive is higher than mine but I'm always able to get hard with her. Since I've been with her, my needs are met without the need to look at porn or masturbate so often, however, I realise that I still love watching porn and I've gotten complacent. Recently I've PMO'd and edged several times whenever I've found myself alone at home. I've used cam sites and porn tubes. I've not seen an escort since but I've often looked at escort sites. Since resuming regular PMO and edging (three or four times per week), the negative effects I've noticed recently are: 1. Brain fog 2. Thinking of porn while having sex 3. Decreased energy to have real sex 4. Decreased pleasure when having sex 5. Delayed ejaculation I thought the brain fog was to do with coffee consumption but I only drink one or two cups a day. Then I remembered what I learned about PMO. So I've decided that I need to be careful and not PMO. I'm worried that my errections could suffer.
