I certainly did when I was on it. Almost impossible to orgasm, maintain an erection or have a normal libido. After I stopped Effexor, these effects resided to some degree but I never fully recovered back to the way I was even 3 years later. Still takes me longer than normal to orgasm now.

I guess there have been a few reports to the FDA of Effexor causing permanent damage with a few people concerning this subject. Although mine was not permanent, it definitely took a toll and is not like it used to be (but the libido is still there, just takes forever now).

It is funny that the Effexor company only reports something like 4% of males taking Effexor experiencing these problems. I have never heard of a person who has NOT had these problems while on Effexor.
