Well I know this question might sound weird, but I know some of you have not suffered from PIED all their lives. So I am asking: what are a normal libido and normal erection functions? I sometimes hear that you can get erections without stimulation on the penis, but to me it only makes sense if I am cuddling, dancing or kissing with a woman. Apart from that, and of course morning wood, I never get erections without stimulation. I am 32, so I am not a teen anymore. I don’t mind not having spontaneous erections. But I am wondering if normal men get them by just talking or interacting with a woman. @Guts , you always say you need no stimulation to get an erection. How does that happen? You don’t have sex or masturbate, and you avoid sexual fantasies. Any enlightenment on this would be very interesting for me. Also, if anybody has had a regular libido at some point in their lives, I would like to hear what they say about it. Either from guys who developed PIED later in their lives, after having a regular sex life, or from guys who recovered. I know @Doper and @Pete McVries could provide interesting things here. I have suffered from PIED from the start of my sex life, so I really have no clue on this. What does it all look like for a normal person in terms of arousal, libido, and on erections? Any inputs on this would be very appreciated.
