Long time lurker, first post. First found out about this intriguing website in my search for an explanation to a problem. My problem is that I require a great deal of stimulation to get hard. I have dealt, or have not dealt with it, for over seven years. It seemed to start after a breakup with a longtime girlfriend and through the course of time manifested into something bad. I guess, after countless web searches, that I suffer from ED. I have made doctor visits, tried drugs like Viagra, talked to therapists, and tried so many different herbs. Drugs are a bit overkill, while herbs don’t seem to do much for me. The doctor does not seem to care as he always suggests the drugs. The therapist only helped me realize what an anxious person I am, and I am now breathing deeply more often. I do not know what the problem is. I can watch porno and WHAM! It’s ready to go. I get to some heavy petting with my SO and I’m hard. When it comes time to dance, I lose it. I thought maybe it’s psychological, but I am no doctor. All my physicals showed that I was mostly healthy with a higher than normal cholesterol level. I am naturally high strung and my job is somewhat stressful. I do not believe that to be a factor, because this problem became evident when I was 26 and life was not too demanding for me. I can have sex, although sometimes it takes a lot to get it started. I exercise regularly, take men’s vitamins, and chow down on L-Arginine (4000mg a day). I quit smoking three years ago, and can now hold my breath for over a minute. All I want is my boner back.
After countless hours of researching, I found myself here at Thunder’s. I have to say, I’m impressed. I had taken up PE out of curiosity only after lurking for about a month. I have noticed some changes in flaccid and erect girth, but not so much for length. I am more in it for penis health rather than the 9x6 billyclub. I also have to say that my girlfriend began wondering if IT was getting bigger. I never told her what I was up to. She has been very understanding about my issue, but is fearful that there may be more to worry about than a limp dick. So, I guess it is that time in my story to ask some of the members here “What Happened”??
1) Has anyone experienced these or similar symptoms? If yes, what did you do?
2) Will PE help me get my boner back? If yes, what exercises benefited you the most?
3) Has long term use of L-Arginine been studied?
4) What herbs have helped some members with getting and maintaining erections?
I would appreciate input as I am becoming more depressed daily. My condition does not keep me from having sex, more like playing pool with a rope until it decides to stiffen up. After all the prep work, sex is enjoyable.especially with a fatter penis.
