Dunno why the SSRIs block orgasm, but they do. Something to do with the serotonin receptors, I think. Dunno. Maybe someone else does.
Cyproheptidine is an old anti-histimine. Can't say anything about how good it is as an anti-histimine, except that I slept peacefully with my face in a cat -- I'm allergic -- after great sex a time or three, but since I slept with my face in that same cat anyway, I'm not sure I"d have noticed any real difference. (For those of you who wonder about that, often you'll become immune to your own cats, once you adjust to them. There's usually a period every year, when pollen starts all the other allergies up, that I'll react to my cats, but the rest of the time it's only other people's cats that make me cry. Someday I'll learn, and stop petting other people's cats. For now, I just cuddle up indiscriminately and cry a lot...)
Hope that helps.
