What is a natural erection and how to tell?

Discussion in 'New to NoFap' started by Deleted Account, Oct 13, 2018.

  1. Hello everyone! I only just joined Nofap today and I have a question that's been bothering me for a while.

    I have a question that's been bothering me for quite some time now.

    When I fantasise about heterosexualsex, I get hard within seconds. And when I'm within 3 days of Nofapalready, my erections are sensitive to heterosexual fantasies.

    I have experimented with gay fantasies and I don't get hard from them but when I use to watch gay porn to test myself if I was gay or not (long story), I never got hard until after a few months when I got hard to two videos. I still don't ger hard from gay fantasies tho

    But my question is, what can be labelled as a natural erection and how can you tell? What is porn induced and what is not? This has bothering me for quite some time now. And maybe this can start up quite the conversation! Help is appreciated!

    p.s. some people have said that they get erections from tranny porn but when they try stuff with a tranny, they don't get hard. I get hard from heterosexual fantasies and porn. But last year, when I would hug my gf (who is now my ex) from the front or the back, I'd get hard. Even just sitting next to her with my arm around her made me hard. Would that be considered a natural erection? I'm 15 by the way if that helps :)

    What you call a "natural erection" I would call a normal erection. You seem like a very normal, heterosexual male. Men peak hormonally (highest testotsterone levels) at age 16. I can remember walking around high school, often with an erection -- a common occurrence for males in their teens.

    Try to avoid staring too long; and also mental fantasies -- they usually lead to pmo.

    You can be very successful against pmo by using distraction techniques (exercise, go outside, dance to your
    favorite tunes, stay busy, etc.) -- and advice from others. Also, try to daily give others encouragement; and advice that has worked for you.

    You can do this!

  3. Thank you for your help! May I ask how long the hormonal peak lasts for teens? If you know that answer of course :)

    Hi, welcome to the forum! Start a reboot log or check out the forum sections if you'd like.

    Testosterone tapers off very gradually between age 30 and old age. As a teenager you still have growth hormone though. Honestly, I'm not the most knowledgeable on this.

    "Testing" like this is something a lot of people do. Obviously we wouldn't suggest it if you intend on rebooting. Part of the problem is that I don't think erections can be explained as natural and unnatural. Watching porn can cause a person to escalate to something newer and more unusual. Your inhibitions can be lowered and you see situations you'd never face in real life.
  5. You're helping me a lot through this. This is only my first day and I've been trying to do nofap for few months now. Do you have any advice for me to stay focused for the first 2 or 3 weeks?

    Also, when I text my girlfriend about making out, I always seem to get hard from that. I do want to "reboot" because I have watchee futa and tranny porn in the past. Also, my view on girls have changed for the worst so hopefully nofap will be my stepping stone for looking at girls the way I used to see them
