I was and always would be, nothing more than a pathetic masturbator

A few years ago I finally had the opportunity to have sex. But because I had spent so much time as a frequent masturbator, when the time came I could not get an erection. Despite being desperately horny, I remained shamefully flaccid no matter what I tried. When I went home that night I laid in bed and my penis finally decided to spring to action. I masturbated twice, thinking of the encounter I had just had. I didn’t know it then but the humiliation of what had happened would fuel my lonely jack off fantasies for years to cum.

However I was in denial. I made up excuses in my head. “It was cold so that’s why I couldn’t get it up.” (The weather had never stopped me masturbating before) “It was the alcohol I had an hour ago.” (I barely had one and a half drinks) “It was because I already masturbated earlier.” (Long over twelve hours ago)

Surely my constant horniness and ability to ejaculate three or five times in a night meant I had the potential to become a sex god. I told myself next time the circumstances would be different. Next time I would get to fuck like a real man.

Intoxicating Behaviors | Reuniting

Intense arousal produces a more exciting buzz of neurochemicals than cheesecake—one which is therefore more reinforcing. That is, the brain more thoroughly wires together all associated cues, making repetition of the experience in the future more automatic. Moreover, heavy porn use sometimes discourages the user’s pursuit of friendly interaction with others, which would help regulate the brain naturally. Also absent are factors that once protected our ancestors against over-stimulation. There are no jealous mates, wise elders, or social taboos, and often no sexual partners with their own ideas. Porn use seems risk-free because it’s private and virtual.

Alas, not only are most of us unaware that today’s hyper-stimulating sexual goodies can put our brains at risk for the changes associated with addiction, we’re also up against a powerful meme in today’s culture. It proclaims that, “Any kind of orgasm-promoting behavior is inherently so healthy that we must vigorously deny the growing evidence of the risks inherent in unlimited access to today’s sexual superstimuli.”

Is this sound thinking? If our brains have evolved to drive us toward food and sex, shouldn’t we be a bit more cautious about inundating ourselves with hyper-stimulating versions of them?

Postorgasmic illness syndrome

Symptoms usually appear within half an hour of orgasm and resolve after a few days.[2][3]

One can experience mental symptoms, physical symptoms, or both. Common mental symptoms include cognitive dysfunction, intense discomfort, irritability, anxiety, craving for relief, susceptibility to nervous system stresses (e.g. cold), depressed mood, and difficulty communicating, remembering words, reading and retaining information, concentrating, and socialising.[2][3][4] Physical symptoms include severe fatigue, mild to severe headache, and flu-like and allergy-like symptoms, such as sneezing, itchy eyes, nasal irritation, and muscle pain.[2][3] Affected individuals may also experience intense warmth.[1]

Pussy Penetration Anxiety Disorder

Pussy Penetration Anxiety Disorder – PPAD

(From the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Masturbatory Disorders)

Symptoms

  • Loss of erection, failure to erect, or premature ejaculation when presented with a penetrable pussy. The more available the pussy, the less the penis is able to penetrate it.
  • PPAD is distinguished from normal Erectile Dysfunction: The patient will be able to achieve and maintain erections while masturbating, even masturbating to images of penetrable pussy, but experience extreme anxiety and erectile failure in actual pussy-penetration situations.
  • PPAD may also manifest as Premature Ejaculation, as the PPAD sufferer ejaculates as quickly as possible to relive his pussy anxiety stress

Causes

  • Fear that the male won’t perform well in bed and satisfy his partner sexually
  • Poor body image, including concern that he is not a real man
  • Male virginity or limited sexual experience
  • The male’s penis is too small to satisfy a woman
  • Chronic compulsive masturbation has left him impotent except when his penis is in his own hand
  • Fear of ejaculating prematurely and spurting all over the pussy
  • Fearing his partner will ask why he can’t fuck her properly, and having to confess his Pathetic Masturbator Syndrome

The PPAD/ED male begins to see the pussy as a threat after repeated sexual failure and humiliation. These anxieties cause his body to launch a “fight or flight” response. Stress hormones like epinephrine and norepinephrine are released in a series of reactions to prepare his body to confront or escape a threat. One of the effects of the stress hormones is to constrict blood vessels, and less blood flowing into the penis makes it more difficult to achieve an erection. 

The PPAD/PE male feels an unbearable tension when presented with a penetrable pussy. He develops a strategy of premature ejaculation in order to relieve his stress as quickly as possible. Sometimes this develops into full-scale Pussy Proximity Disorder and he ejaculates on approach, even before contact with the pussy.  

Of course, a pussy isn’t a threat to a normal, real man, which is why this response is characteristic of chronic masturbators. PPAD is often associated with chronic compulsive masturbation. The clinician should always pursue a thorough examination of the patient’s masturbatory history when PPAD symptoms are presented. 

Cures

The prognosis is not hopeful. Most PPAD sufferers retreat further into a pattern of arousal / masturbatory release / shame / arousal.  Initially a defense mechanism, PPAD Erectile Dysfunction or Premature Ejaculation become fetishsized and the male derives arousal and satisfaction from his humiliating failures. The feeling of being a sexual loser with PPAD is strangely arousing to chronic masturbators, and effectively short-circuits any attempt to overcome the problem.

It is possible that a very understanding female partner willing to provide low-stress “pittyfuck” therapy may be beneficial. But only if the masturbator sincerely wishes to be cured.

Measuring Porn’s Effects- What About the Users?

Compulsive masturbation sounds like fun, but trust me it’s not. As with any addiction, too much intense stimulation dysregulates dopamine. Results include becoming desensitized to life’s subtler pleasures, such as the charms of normal partners, and, at the same time, becoming extremely hypersensitive to any cues the brain has rewired itself to associate with “relief.” The user’s brain constantly scans the environment for any sign of sexual stimuli that would facilitate, in this case, masturbation to orgasm. Tolerance builds, making the pursuit of more stimulating materials mandatory to relieve the misery of withdrawal.

This combination of effects can make the world look gray. It is quite normal for men caught in this cycle to feel social anxiety around others, depression, despair, apathy, and so forth. Until they “reboot” their brains, life seems meaningless, but for the single-minded pursuit of hotter stimuli. Ironically, porn does not even ease sexual frustration, except in the very short-term…sometimes. It’s not uncommon for users to binge with orgasm after orgasm because they simply cannot scratch their itch successfully. (Intense highs cause intense lows, and a desire for more.)

Often users don’t realize they are hooked or what they’re passing up until they unhook from frequent porn use and give their brains a chance to return to equilibrium. The lengthy withdrawal required to achieve this can be so agonizing (shakes, insomnia, despair, cravings) that many feel trapped.
