Ok Guys, just had a look at the yourbrainonporn website and it has finally hit home. I have a porn dependancy and it may be causing me ED. Why I say may be causing is because I have what I think is pelvic tension disorder as well. This is where I have a tighness and ache in my perineum and anus area. I think I hold stress and anxiety in my pelvic region but I'm also pretty sure that edging was the the straw that broke the camel's back. I over did the kegels(also reverse kegels) and now I'm paying for it. Anyway I've always kind of depended on visual stimulation to masturbate but got more into porn this year as an edging tool. I've used soft core porn, mfc girls, I tried to stay away from too much hard core stuff. Basically I've used too much and now I can't get hard without something to look at. I'm not an addictive person as I've never smoked, don't like to get drunk often, never taken drugs or gambled and I eat for nourishment more than pleasure.
I have no worries about giving up porn for pleasure but I am worried about giving up my PE(maybe I'm addicted ). I was using a pump today and turned on some audio erotic stories to get me harder(I hadn't watched porn or masturbated for two weeks). I now realize that this was silly as I was releasing dopamine albeit smaller doses while hearing the girls sexy voice . Anyway, I'm ready to go again. No porn, no masturbation or sex(haven't a sex partner at the moment anyway so that will be easy) for I don't how long it will take.
I guess my questions are:
I just bought a pump and an extender, can I use them or should I not touch my penis at all?
I was thinking to myself that I could strap on my extender and not think about it.
I haven't masturbated for about 3 weeks now and my flaccid has shrunk to pre-PE size which is a loss of 1" in length and .5" in girth(although this could be due to pelvic tension) so I'm worried about withering away.
Seems to be only one question but any advice would be helpful as well.
Thanks in advance.
