Interesting. I have given this some thought since I read the above (as well as the rest of the information in this thread). I reviewed my own actions that were "before" and "after" Lexapro. Before, and I was depressed, I was totally passive and sought sexual attention in a passive posture from sexually dominant partners. When I was manic, I was aggressively dominant and I was hypersexual.

Since the Lexapro, I've found a much more stable middle ground. I am “passive” some days, but I don't "bottom". Other days I am more assertive, but I don't "Top" (unless it's part of the play).

But I have also noticed that in both cases, there is a distinct "before" and "after" playtime that is sharing, considerate, and genuine. This is new for me. It's not something I "have" to do, it's something I want to and something I enjoy doing... but never gave much thought where this came from. I thought it was due to the emotional hell I have been through over the last year or so because I've never been a very "warm and fuzzy" person when it comes to intimate contact, and that I wanted to change that and be more attentive and personal. But perhaps not? That’s going to be something I think about for a while. However, either way, I accept it for what it is, the cause is not as important as the effect. I just want to know which one it is, in case I ever change meds.

I've left out the "preference" issue because that hasn't changed at all. I'm omnivorous. :)
