You might want to try Remeron (recently approved here in Jul98 I believe). I've heard no sexual sides effects...the only negative thing I have heard is weight gain. However, this seems to come from an increased appetite, not from screwed up metabolism; therefore, if you don't eat any more calories than normal, you shouldn't have a problem. I was on Prozac for 8 years and it wrecked havoc with my orgasms (could have them alone but not with BF :-) ). Like you, I am looking for the epitome of the perfect depression with zero side effects!! Good luck!
