You should read the post I refer to as well as the Wikipedia article. There are several strains of direct evidence, but perhaps more important there is indirect evidence that the phenomenon discussed has been methodologically excluded or marginalized in the relevant research studies.

It's the same idea as the weight neutrality myth concerning the SSRIs: there has hardly been any real long-term (6 months or more) research after the weight effects of SSRIs. Since for many people weight gain takes at least half a year to become fully manifest, clinicians can still hold up the myth that weight gain is not causally related to these drugs. I don't want to change the subject, but the point is that faulty methodology leads to false assumptions. As with the weight gain issue, the burden of proof for the assumption that SSRIs don't have persistent negative effects on sexual functioning should ly with the origibal researchers, who simply haven't investigated the matter appropiately.
If you ask for proof, another good question would be in these cases: why is there no proof?
