Respected Sir,
I am answering the questions that you have asked to me:
1. How long are you facing the problem? Have you experienced similar issues in the past?
Sir, I am facing this problem from the last 4 years. I am now 24 years old. I never discussed this with anyone. Even though my penis was not standing straight I continued masturbating. Almost all the seven days I masturbated. I still remember an incident in my degree time 2012, I can't feel the pain in my penis, if some ball got hit by by-chance

2. How the problem started? It was built up slowly or abruptly?
From the year 2008, I am masturbating, and still, it continues. I lost my erection i.e., my penis is not standing straight in 2011 itself. It was partially standing, I did masturbation again by watching nude pictures, and videos. I think it was built up slowly because of my over work with the penis.

3. What could be the factor according to you for onset of problem? Just have a thought according to you. Try to think beyond masturbation.
I used to watch porn as a teenager and from that time till now I used to masturbate. I can't stop myself from masturbation. Yesterday also I masturbated. One marriage proposal came to me, so from that time I decided to consult a doctor, that’s how I found this online.

4. What number of sexual intercourse/masturbation failed in last one year and in last one month?
I did sexual intercourse for 2 times in my entire lifetime. The first time intercourse was like due to my weight I did it slowly and she was on my top, but still, I was not feeling that my penis was inserted into a vagina. I did not tell her. I was not cumming too. She then jerk off my penis. I cannot feel that I am inserting into a vagina, maybe because I am using a condom.

5. What are the factors that increase the problem?
I think my massive masturbation, which is beyond limits. Also in 2017, my penis is not standing still. But I am able to masturbate and can also cum. The main thing is like I can’t make my penis stand erect even for 40 sec.

6. Factors that relieve the problem- you can describe them in detail if any?
I have noticed, one thing that If I am not masturbating for some days, or if I cum in my sleep, I feel like the working of the penis will be all-right. Also if I eat chicken, eggs, beef, cashew nuts and all, I am not getting my penis stand straight but while masturbating I can understand that the white sperm is more, that I cum.

7. Do you get early morning erection?
Yeah, I have found that sometimes, when I wakeup at early morning, my penis will be in erection stage. I am feeling like my penis have become older like an old man’s penis even at my age of 24.

8. If yes how frequent and how intense? Please answer this necessarily.
Not all the time, but it gets certain power but not erecting completely like when I was in 9th standard.

9. Details of past medical illnesses, like duration, any complications, treatment received till date.
Nill

10. Investigations done till date and reports.
Nill

11. Do you have any psychiatric illness?
Nill

12.Any other problem you like to report
