I am 29 years old and i have been masturbating from the age of 16 almost twice a Day.
I have been regularly having sex with my girl friend from the age of 21.
I used to have sex 3 times a day and had a erection without any problem.
From past 1 year i am unable to have sex(Strong Erection) more than once a Day.
Is it a Problem ?
Is age a Reason?
Is excessive masturbation a reason?
Or any other reason?
Do u think i have to go for some Check ups?
You may have identified your problem, watching and masturbating to porn. If you continue to masturabte to porn you may have ED during real sex.
Over the last 5 years we have seen hundreds of men on our porn recovery forums with ED. Many in their teens and twenties. They stop porn - and limit masturbation - and they slowly recover their libido and erectile health. Most health professionals are unaware of thisd rapidly developing problem.
The problem is in your brain, not your penis. ED caused by porn is not psychological, it is structural and biochemical.
Internet porn can become an addiction, and with all addictions the brain changes, or adapts. It does not matter if the addiction is to a substance or whether it is a behavioral addiction, the same brain changes result.
Today's internet porn is nothing at all like our ancestors ever encountered, with the constant novelty and genres of extreme porn. Unlike yesterday's Playboy, Internet porn overstimulates the brain structures responsible for libido, erections, and addiction.
Brain changes include a drop in dopamine receptors in the reward circuitry. Reducing the amount of dopamine receptors decreases your pleasure response to "normal" stimuli. In other words, real-life sexual partners and previous porn won't excite your brain enough to get your penis going. Turning on dopamine receptors is how you get turned on.
Here are two excellent presentations, by a science teacher, on the effects of pornography on the brain. They are non-religious, non-judgmental, and science based.
