The dietary stuff is interesting guys. Last year I screwed around with diets and supplements but nothing helped. I tried going keto, vegan and OMAD. Though it didn't work before I'm still open to trying out new diets to see if anything works.

Maybe you should clarify some simple things cause this is pretty confusing honestly.
Are you having issues getting and staying hard during real life sex exclusively? Or when you jack off and / or watch porn as well?
Like can you at least get hard and have a orgasm when you are all by yourself, with porn?
Or is even that a challenge?
I try and cram all the relevant info into my posts since I don't want to miss anything but now I see that ends up being a bit incoherent.
Bar a few exceptions I don't get hard from anything but strong and constant stimulation. The second the stimulation stops it starts deflating like a cartoon balloon. I can manage to have sex like this, but its not fun and its not guaranteed. I've let a few girls down. I can take 100mgs of V and that'll stop it deflating, but it can be hit and miss. There's no difference between porn and real life sex, it won't get me hard unless I really go to town on my dick.
The exceptions are that lately I've been getting maybe 70% morning wood most days. I've also had a couple experiences the last two years where out of the blue I got hard without pills, but those are super rare.

Hope any of this helps. I know how frustrating this shit can be to deal with so I'd wanted to give a proper reply.
Cheers for the response. I've had the issue for 6 years now so I've been through most of what you've suggested. The majority of the sex I've had has been with pills. These days I just do foreplay on the first date and count my dick out. I tried a lot of supplements and dietary changes but they didn't really help, although I haven't yet tried Arginine. Maybe I should though as even if it doesn't help my ED it might be good for bodybuilding.
The thing about the porn stuff is that was actually the first thing I tried. The way this started was I tried to have sex for the first time and suddenly my dick was completely dead, no matter what, with and without porn (though strangely I still got morning wood). Previously my dick had a hair trigger for getting hard, so I was totally caught off guard and quite a bit worried. I frantically searched the web for answers and immediately came across no fap and YBOP. The shock of suddenly having a dead dick overnight, the feeling of constantly letting this girl down, and also the fact my sex drive was pretty crushed from it anyway meant that it was easy to keep off porn for about 6 months.
But after 6 months with no results eventually I figured the porn explanation doesn't apply to me. I don't fit the profile anyway. My ED was suddenly triggered by trying to have sex with a woman, not a gradual buildup of the effects of porn. It's not like real sex isn't "measuring up" to porn or something as porn doesn't get me hard since that day either. How can porn use explain my dick dying overnight? Despite having ED I still get horny and so for a while this year I was settled into beating off to porn (still with ED) maybe about once a week. I find nudes from my partners can be tempting and recently I've used those more often than actual internet porn. Over the years I did revisit the porn explanation, and I tried brief stints of cutting it out again. I browsed the YBOP testimonials to try and see if anyone there fits my profile to give me a bit of hope that maybe I just needed to do 9 months or something and suddenly everything would come good. But ultimately skepticism would get the better of me and I'd go back to my once a week habit.
I don't write this to try and justify watching porn though, just to provide context to my situation. I'd rather keep off porn even if it doesn't fix my ED for other reasons. I'm trying to clear up a chronic rash under my foreskin which involves taping it back daily and this gets in the way of beating it (to porn and in general) so maybe this little barrier will give me the push to finally get rid of it. Although I really do enjoy getting nudes from my partners so maybe I can make an exception for that so long as it's rare enough and I don't masturbate.
