I was wondering if Viagra helped -- guess it doesn't get you to the finish line, though. I wonder if there is something about seratonin that makes it important to the male orgasm?

> I'm female. When I was on Zoloft I could not reach orgasim. I wanted to (although my sex drive was diminished). The problem seemed to be that my mind could not stay focused on the task. I almost always got too tired and gave up. When I started on Lexapro, one of the first things I did was pull out my old vibrator, and think about shopping for a new one. Fortunately, Lexapro hasn't affected me as badly as Zoloft did!

I've had the problem in the past where neither my partner nor the vibrator can keep my interest, but I didn't consider that any of it could be connected with the medications. Actually, when discussing the problem with a roommate about a dozen years ago (I was not on medication at the time), she suggested fantasizing. I guess men do that all the time, which is kind of what the guys here are talking about, that even that isn't helping. I haven't had any special problems in reaching orgasm on any of the ADs, just the problem with the sex drive. Which I guess I should say that even though I had an almost non-existent sex drive, I did "force" myself to masturbate, since I think sex is a necessary function of life. Which is also what I think the guys here are saying.
