Does NoFap Make You Harder?
So what's the deal with NoFap and all the bedroom benefits?
Does NoFap help with erection quality?
Does NoFap make you harder?
Well chances are that it will, but it depends a bit where you are coming from.
If you have a severe illness or some organic problem causing you ED, then no amount of NoFap will be able to make you harder. NoFap might still be able to boost your erection quality just a bit, but NoFap alone is not powerful enough to override any serious organic issues.
If you do NOT have any organic problems – Then NoFap can do wonders for your erection quality!
Now if you do not have any illness or serious organic problems, then NoFap can really do wonders for the strength of your erections and I'll tell you why in just a minute, but let's get one thing out of the way right from the start.
If you have sluggish erections these are the steps you need to take…
- Go see a good urologist to rule out any medical abnormalities or organic problems.
- See a good doctor to rule out depression, any other mental problem or potential side effects from medications.
- Start your NoFap journey!
Organic problems means things like physical conditions, like for example neurological, anatomical, hormonal etc.
What about general health?
Here some of you may be asking, but what about living a healthy lifestyle with no smoking and consuming moderate amounts of alcohol etc. ?

Well, of course things like excessive smoking, lack of sleep with too much partying have serious negative effects on your erection quality as well, but here's something that may come as a shock to you…
…the habit of fapping to online pornography is killing far more erections in young men today than what smoking and alcohol does!
Now, before I continue I need to point out that I'm NOT saying that you should keep drinking, smoking and happily ignore your health, not at all…
….quit that crap as soon as possible, but what I am saying is that today's online porn is so stimulating for the brains reward system that it kills mens erections faster than anything else out there.
This is especially true in young men.
So, how do we know that internet porn is killing mens erections faster than an unhealthy lifestyle?
Well, here it is…
The number of men having erection problems has skyrocketed since the introduction of high speed internet…
What changes have the world seen during the last 20 years?
Well, before we get to that, take a look at these numbers…
- In 2002 the number of men under 40 with erection problems were about 2%
- In 2016 the number of 16-21 year olds with erection problems were 45.3%
What could be the cause of such an incredible big spike in ED?
Well, I'll tell you one thing, the cigarette smoking and the alcohol drinking has NOT increased this much!
In 2002 Dutch researchers did a big meta study and found out that the number of men under 40 years of age with erection problems were about 2%. Note, this is BEFORE high speed internet became available and BEFORE porn tube sites with streaming functions became a thing.
Porn tube sites entered the scene in 2006.
Then, in 2016, a Canadian study that did several checkpoints found that males between 16 and 21 year old that reported erection problems were as high as 45,3%
That is more than a 20x increase!
A 2165% increase in youthful ED since the introduction of porn tube sites!
This was just two studies and there are a lot more of them out there, all pointing to the exact same thing…
…porn is literally killing today's mens libido and erections!
This is especially true if you have developed a porn addiction, with real addiction related brain changes – see these 55 brain studies, all supporting the porn addiction model.
It's not the lifestyle – It's fapping to the porn!
Now while it's true that the sedentary lifestyle, and perhaps also unhealthy living has increased during the last 20 years, anyone with any ounce of sense can stay away from assuming that would be the only explanation for the skyrocketing rate of ED problems.
Well, just think about it, even IF smoking or drinking had increased twentyfold -which it hasn't – it wouldn't show up as ED in 16-21 year olds to the extent that the study found, as it takes years for various lifestyle factors, such as smoking or drinking, to manifest as vasculogenic or neurogenic ED.
What about tesosterone levels?
Yes, today's men have lower testosterone levels than what the older generation had, but again, the difference is nowhere near enough to explain such a huge ED epidemic around the world.
Besides, the levels didn't suddenly drop around 2006, but what actually happened 2006 was the introduction of porn tube streaming sites.
In addition, from what I have read on all the NoFap forums now for the almost 10 years I've been involved in the community, most of the men who experience porn induced ED, and who go check their testosterone, have levels well above what's needed to achieve and maintain a healthy erection.
But How Can Porn Cause Weak Erections?
If you are interested in the science behind how porn can cause weak erections, or even total ED (porn induced ED), then take a look at the video below.
I made this video a while back and while it also focus on other dopamine driven things, like motivation, concentration and so on, you will discover the exact reason behind why your today's super stimulating porn sites are just too much to handle for your brains reward system.
In short there are two reasons for why porn can cause erection problems…
- It desensitizes your reward system (like explained in the video above)
- The dopamine spike that occurs during the porn sessions help condition your sexual responses to become more aroused by pixels on a screen than by real life people. It's like online porn “hijacks” your libido.
What should you do to reverse the problem?
If you think that all the years of fapping to adult sites have caused your erections to not live up to their “full potential”, so to speak, then the solution is simple…
…stop fapping to adult sites!
Well, the truth is that it's simple, but it's not easy.
It's not easy because most men have developed at least some degree of addiction related brain changes and this also means that most men relapse several times before finally being able to leave porn behind for good.
The process of quitting porn is often called “rebooting” in the porn addiction community.
If you need more detailed info on how to fix ED that is caused by adult sites then take a look at my article, How to reverse PIED. It's a very helpful article that will answer any potential questions you might have, as well as give you helpful tips.
Does NoFap Give You Harder Erections Even if You're Not A Porn Addict?
Now there might be two questions spinning around in your head…
- First, how does one know if one has developed addiction related brain changes?
- Second, what about if you only used adult sites in moderation, can NoFap still give you harder erections in that case?
Well, in order know if you have developed a real porn addiction we can NOT just go by the amount of porn your consume in and of itself. This is because it's indeed possible for some guys to develop real addiction related brain changes even with moderate use.
Likewise it's also possible to be a big consumer and not develop an addiction.
The best way to know for sure is to watch this video – with 7 signs that you are a porn addict.

The answer to the second question, whether or not NoFap can make you harder if you're not an addict is a resounding, wait for it…
NoFap Can Make You Harder Even if Not Addicted To Porn
There are two things you need to know here…
- You don't need to be an addict to develop some form of porn induced sexual problems.
- Even if you almost never use porn, NoFap can still make you harder in the bedroom.
This is interesting, let me tell you…
The less porn you watch, and the less you masturbate, the more sensitive your brains sexual response is going be. This means the sexual center in the brain will be sending much stronger signals to your penis, whenever your brain thinks there is an opportunity for sex, and thus your penis will respond with fuller and stronger erections.
Guys who never had a porn problem…
Here's something to consider…
I have even heard guys, who never had a porn problem, and who are in their 40s and even 50s say that NoFap made them feel like 19 year olds again, producing impressive steel pipes in the bedroom, and how they've been able to increase the number of “rounds” they can go in one night.
So NoFap can help you get harder, no doubt.
Guys who are addicted…
Now, if you have an addiction to online adult sites, well then…
…all the more reason to do NoFap!
Then NoFap is almost a must for you since it will help you overcome your porn addiction and fix any potential erection problems you might have. Or almost certainly have, since more than 50% of porn addicts report sexual problems.
I did a poll on my YouTube channel, asking my subscribers about if NoFap had helped their erection quality, and this is how they responded…
As you can see, only about 9% out of the guys who are sexually active did not find that NoFap helped their erections.
2159 guys voted.
Now, I need to point out that from previous polls I have done I suspect that most of my subscribers have developed addiction related brain changes. In other words, most of them are porn addicts.
This is not a big surprise since most of my YouTube videos are about how to quit porn. But one thing to note here is that if I were to do the same poll for the general population, the answers might look different.
So to sum it up, if you are not addicted, you can do NoFap as a nice “bonus” to get even healthier erections. And if you are addicted then NoFap is no longer a bonus, it is a must, in order to heal your sexuality.
What You Can Do To Get Harder Erections Right Now
Obviously, if you think fapping to adult sites is the cause of your sluggish erections, you need to do a proper reboot and let that process take the time it needs.
To help you with this, read the following articles…

- 7 PIED recovery tips for you to try
In addition you could try a libido and testosterone boosting supplement I have been using myself for quite a long time now, called AlphaViril.

During my own reboot, a few years back, I tried every supplement I could get my hands on and I found two of them helpful. AlphaVirl was one of them.
Even though my brain was pretty desensitized by all the porn is still helped me increase my libido and get stronger erections.
Does it help if adult sites messed you up?
Now, I need to remind you here that it is not a cure for PIED.
Rebooting is the one and only cure, but it did help increase my libido as well as make me harder so I could be sexually active during my rewiring phase. So if you use it as a helpful tool only and NOT as a substitute for rebooting there is nothing wrong with that.
That said, just because it worked great for me, it's no guarantee it will do the same for you. Some guys are just too messed up by all the porn that no supplements, ED drugs or anything else help even the slightest. Rebooting, armed with time and patience is the only real cure.
What if you use it without being a porn addict?
I have been fully cured from PIED for a pretty long time now, and if I use AlphaViril today, which I sometimes do, oh man, now we are talking steel pipes.
It really works wonders on libido and makes sex incredible pleasurable. I have had many of my subscribers telling me the same. Guys that have been just very mildly affected by porn, or not affected at all, but just want more libido and stronger erections in general.
Personally I notice how it makes the tip of the penis feel very sensitive. Almost like I can feel my pulse beating in it, all while I feel this surge of dopamine and testosterone running through my body. In other words, a surge of real primitive horniness, I guess.
It is in fact not only a libido booster, but it actually increases testosterone and dopamine as well.

I have also made another blog post where I make a full, detailed, AlphaViril review, if that would be of interested to you.
