Pornography.: Not necessarily. However when watching pornography there is no performance anxiety or pressure to meet the needs of a partner. Pornography is designed to be highly erotic which means maximum stimulation as compared to average sexual encounters. When you masturbate, you have probably learned effective ways to stimulate yourself, where as a partner may not have.

No: Porn and/or masturbation per se do not cause ED. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
