that's interesting linkadge because I consider serotonin to be a kind of feminine principle drug in the sense it helps you "receive" feelings of well-being and if you aren't blunted you tend to feel more compassionate and and connected instead of being narrowly focused and trying to conquer someone in search of that feeling of control {masculine/power principle. Naturally, the both always coexist in some proportion or you would be absolutely psychotic or delusionally depressed if either were negatively exaggerated and pathology manifested itself. That's my opinion.

I think you can definitely be aggressive and exhibit the masculine principle {masculine and feminine really don't refer to biological sex and neither sex really owns one princple over another and even those people or images which embody one principle over another really need a healthy dose of the other princple going on in order to be a healthy, long-term surviving individual} as a male in a same-sex situation.

I think in order to be somewhat sane in life you have to be able to submit and also conquer; let go and hold on. Maybe the SSRIs cause feelings that point to a more general need for balance that extends and may be more important and outside your sexuality.

Oddly, enough stimulant type drugs make the opposite of my normal preference more palatable if I am in a calm euphoric {or close to} state. I guess I am the opposite of you in that sense.

Hope all is well!
