18 and problems with erection and sex desire

I am 18 and i have a steady girlfriend with whom i have sex with regularly. I have never been unable to "get it up", however, I am not satisfied with the strength and fullness of my erections when I with my girlfriend. I know for a fact that i get much harder and fuller when i masturbate to porn. Also, i do not wake up with morning wood very often anymore.

Why is it that i am unable to achieve my best erection without porn???

also, my sleep is a complete disaster, i generally only get like 4-5 hours a night



please let me know what the hell is wrong with me, i don't feel like the same person

Maybe you have trained yourself that way using porn and fantasy. You could try to lay off the porn and get back into reality. You could also start by seeing if your g/f would like to watch porn with you and then see what happens.

Re: 18 and problems with erection and sex desire

Exactly. What Cinemagic said... Porn is fantasy, and real women are, well, REAL. They have flaws, they aren't all airbrushed and Photoshopped and silliconed up.

Like he says, try laying off the porn for a while - at the very least a couple weeks I'd say since you'll have memories of what you've seen that need to fade some.

By the way, I'm a recovering sex addict - porn and masturbation were my drug. I can't stress enough that you CAN become addicted, and that it definitely can have side effects like you describe. I've had some of them. There's some people here who will say that masturbation is good and natural, and you can't do it too much; and that porn is fine. Maybe for some people that's true, but I disagree with those folks because I've experienced what it can do to your life if it becomes an addiction. My $0.02? Quit the porn altogether, and consider cutting way back on the masturbation.

Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox...
