Porn/Masturbation-induced ED question

So my main concern when getting intimate with a woman is getting and maintaining a hard erection for the entirety of the sex. To increase my sex drive, I will masturbate and watch porn, but I worry the porn has become under-stimulating and I will not be able to keep my erection when the time comes. Should I be trying to increase my sex drive another way, maybe by reducing the amount of porn I watch or reducing the times I watch it while masturbating? This has been a recent issue that has come up in the recent past and I’d really like to conquer it!

I’m going through the exact same thing man. My boners have been so flaky I can’t get hard when I want to anymore so to “fix”the issue I end up watching porn and masturbating but I fear it’s a hinderance to the problem i honestly don’t know what to do either

Well . Don’t watch Porn for a year - lost all desire / instinct. Watch Porn : need more and more exotic porn.

Maybe it’s about moderation .

I’ve found that not watching porn has had positive effects on my life. When I’m at my most depressed, lonely, and insecure, it’s usually in the middle of a porn bender. When I’m not watching porn regularly, I feel far more confident with women, in my job, and I take risks that have a positive benefit on my life.

I’m not here to tell anymore not to watch porn or masterbate. However, I do think there is something to not doing that stuff, whatever it may be. It’s like it taps into this primal side of you as a man, because it is clear to your body and the universe that the only way you are going to be able to get off, is if it is with a partner.

Guys I’m not even kidding. I literally go up to women that I catch looking at me in public and talk to them without even thinking about it. I’m not gassing myself up, it just happens. Before when I looked at porn, I’d be in those same situations and shrink from the opportunity and challenge.

Yes I think porn/masturbation is effectively satisfying you so your body doesn’t need it when partner comes along.

I admit my porn use has basically gone to zero with mojo and my masturbation has without porn has gone up - it is so much more satisfying with slow focus in sensation and so on that mojo has encouraged. But I’ve been doing it daily and when partner is keen I’m actually done ! - so I am going to try laying off masturbation a bit - well at least not daily - and see how that goes.
