im 25 and ive been having weak erections for a while now ive been self pleasuring since i was like 10 but whenever i have orgasams my erection isnt 100% and it always leans down instead of straight or up....i used to masturbate on my stomach alot when i was younger does this mean the base of my penis is weak? because thats what it feels like when i have a erection the base is just very week and my erection is just sits down and doesnt really stand up fully,,,i dont take any medication
Seems to me you have something simular that I went/go through. Your artery / arteries may be too narrow or you have a veinous leak. My left artery that pumps blood in to get hard is narrow I take an injection to get hard. See a urologist someone your age usually psyical cause surgery can help veinous leaks but arterial problems not much they can do
Here's a simple comparison test to check for porn-induced ED:
1. Masturbate to your favorite porn.
2. Try to masturbate using no porn and no fantasy - only sensations. Masturbate with same speed and pressure as you would during intercourse.
Compare one and two. How erect was your penis? How long did it take you to reach orgasm? What was your level of excitement? A healthy young man should have no trouble attaining a full erection and masturbating to orgasm without porn or fantasy.
1. If you have a strong erection on #1, but problems on #2, then you have porn-induced ED.
2. If #2 is strong and solid, but you have trouble with a real partner, then you have anxiety induced ED
3. If you have problems during both 1 & 2, you may have severe porn-induced ED, or an organic problem. When in doubt, see a good urologist.
