TennisBalls, Great thread and input.
Can you give us a no nonsense breakdown of the supplements (exact brand, dosage, and manner/times in which you take them) that you believe substantively benefit you in this area? I have heard Boron increases free test, fyi.

TennisBalls I hardly ever post here but your comment made me log in and reply. I am having some ED issues, likely caused by watching porn for years and cutting of the Mind-Penis link in the process, however I also feel I never truly cut if off (the link that is ) because I could and can always get an erection just from touch and the mind. I recently started No Fap (5 days ago) but I think I am just going to not look at porn and build up the Mind-Penis Link. However I am not sure about ejaculating because I really want rock hard 10/10 random erections and morning wood back, yet I had a Wet Dream 2 days ago didn't dream about sex though just woke up with a wet patch so my penile issues really cant be as bad as I believe them to be, I'm 18 by the way.
I agree with what you say, over time if you just work on your EQ improving and masturbate softly using your hand and mind eventually during the day you will see a hot girl and be so aroused because you haven't see such as sexy woman is so long not even pixels = boner.
Great Post.Currently recovering from porn induced ED.

I gotta agree with Raccoon Man, your post about the Mind-Penis link makes a lot of sense to me TennisBalls. It's actually something I've contemplated here and there regarding my issues, which are a little bit different but have overlapping characteristics.
Tonight while driving home I tried visualizing a girl I'd just seen at the bar and like you said (and as I've realized myself) it wasn't necessarily easy or natural but honestly it didn't take long to sort of get going with the visualization and boom I started getting blood flow. This is the missing link in my own healing. I've gotten so much healthier through diet and yoga and I've found much control and awareness over my mental problems through meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy...and now I am finally ready to rebuild the connections that have been getting cut off for so many years by porn OCD and anxiety...ultimately all of which is rooted in fear which goes against my true nature.
All I've got to say is thank you for sharing because I really had a light bulb go off in my head tonight and I feel empowered that my healing is going to take another step forward.

I first of all try to eat a healthy diet, somewhat paleo style with a lot of healthy fats from steak, olive oil, fish oil, coconut oil, butter, etc. and then lots of veggies
For supplements I keep it pretty simple
1. Vitamin D3 + Vitamin k2 (mk-4 version)
Vitamin D3 I take 2,000-5,000 iu a day and vitamin k2 i take usually 1mg a day sometimes 2mg. I have not gotten sick in almost 2 years since incorporating this into my routine and I know it is this because I took all the other supplements except boron prior to this. Vitamin D is super cheap, I just use the walmart brand because it doesn't matter. Vitamin k I switch up sometimes life extensions, sometimes whats called high quality butter oil.
2. Magnesium oil - just spray about 5 sprays on myself after the shower everyday
3. Boron-I take a product called Tri-Boron Plus by twinlabs but might switch when this is gone because it contains calcium and from my research supplemental calcium is not needed. Boron makes me teenager horny. I take 6 caps of this a day for 3 days then take 2 days off
4. L-arginine or Citrulline - this really helps keep my blood pressure normal and if I take a lot prior to sex gives good erections
5. Desiccated Liver tabs - good source of B-vitamins and A
6. I rotate and cycle adaptogens - tribulus, ginseng, ashwaghanda, ginseng, rhodiola
I also take a break from all supplements for a week or two every couple months, and whenever I think of it I take vitamin C and occasionally a multi vitamin.

I forgot one other staple I take everyday is a swig of braggs apple cider vinegar. Nothing has improved my digestion more.
One other supp that helps with keeping blood pressure down and will make you super horny is celery seed extract. I cycle this in sometimes too.
That's really it. I keep it simple after having experimented with countless supplements costing hundreds of dollars and finding which ones I truly felt a benefit from

Hi TB, I'm glad to hear that you are able to gain back the confidence and cure most of your problem. I have a complex ED / PreE complex that I'm trying to improve. I'm at the 30yrs mark, so I need to fix this problem before my testestron level starts to drop. I read that you had experienced the low libido with no fap, so I'm wondering if you can give me any suggestions.
My penis works, it's physically healthy. I have no problem getting a hard on with porn. With that said, I know my ED problems are caused by mental issues. I can't get hard with real women. They would have to work on me orally for a long time to achieve an erection that's hard, but not quite full length. By that time I'd ready to shoot.
So I'm trying to cut back on porn + MB. I'm trying to replace it with edging. However, it seems that my libido is gone. While I was fapping to ejeculation 2, 3 times a day, I was also constantly horny. I know I can't get hard without porn, but I felt that my crotch was constantly "stuffed" and I wanted release. I'd wake up and MB to porn. Come home and MB to porn. Before dinner, before bed, halfway through night. I constantly wanted to MB.
Now, I don't feel anything. I will get a 8/10 erection spontaneously a couple of times per day, which lasts for couple of seconds before going away. Admittedly, this never happened before while I was MB like crazy. But I don't feel horny anymore. As I edge, I'd get bored after 10 min and decide to do something else. I don't currently have any sex partners, so I can't comment on how it's working out with real women.
I know you went through something similar while doing the no fap. What are you thoughts?

Hey tennisballs, I'm going to have a try at your suggestions. It's been many years since I've been able to get hard without manual stimulation. It's definitely a mind thing because it does get 100% hard eventually and quicker with porn than without. I put this down to years of masturbating/porn viewing because of boredom rather than genuine arousal.
Month 1: Imagination + stimulation from start.
Month 2: Imagination + stimulation once 50% erect.
Month 3: Imagination + stimulation once 75% erect.
Month 4: Imagination + stimulation once 100% erect.
I started yesterday, including the kegel variations described. I really hope non of the ladies I work with can read minds because I can hardly believe what my imagination was having them do, shocked myself!
