Married for over three years. Currently struggling through a flatline that makes me feel anxious and stressed that my libido will never return. I use Cialis sometimes but it’s not very helpful when sex drive is zero and penis isn’t as sensitive due to PIED. I definitely recommend seeking moments of intimacy: cuddling, massaging, kissing, etc. It has helped me feel like I am not just a burden on my wife but am actively showing her how much I love and care for her. Sometimes I think rebooting as a single person would be easier because you don’t owe anybody an explanation or projected timeline for getting better. For me, the mental/emotional funk of the flatline is the absolute worst side effect.
I can really relate to your symptoms..
My background story.
I was addicted to porn for over 18 years. I was watching very hardcore movies. I was jerking off at least 3 times, sometimes even more every day. Every session could last more than an hour by being edging.
I met an amazing girl almost 2 years ago. Instead making love, I pretty much carried my addiction to our bedroom.
I was using my girlfriend as part of my PMO fantasies.
I’ve decided to stop it completely. I started my rebooting just a little bit over a year. So we started to make love rather than just fucking and at the same time stoped using erection’s pills. The first two months a high spike of sex drive with so much energy and great erections and amazing sex.
after three months my sex drive, my erections, my sexual feelings gone completely. Once a month or even longer have a bit of sexual tensions. As soon as I cum, I get back to a very long flatline with zero sensation down there.
last time I felt the sexual tension was over two months.
All I can say, it is a very scary and long reboot process that you start to doubt your sexuality.
