Hi! I can give you a little info about what it is like for both men and women. I have been on effexor for 5 years, and my husband has been on effexor XR for a little over 10 months.

For me it goes something like this - sex? what for? for about 3 - 6 months then all of a sudden BAM! I gotta have sex or I'm gonna explode!

For my husband it is a little different. He is still very interested in sex. Foreplay, self masterbation and me masterbating him the whole nine yards... But when it comes to orgasm, it has been very difficult for him. He has even gotten to the point where he has exhasuted himself and given up - frustrated. Which of course doesn't help his mental attitude very much.

From my point of view, having seen the side effects that effexor can do, not to mention the withdrawal hell, I would see if you can get another medication that would suit your bio-chemical needs. Assuming of course that you are taking or will be taking effexor??
