> This is kind of embarrassing....... But has anyone had any POSITIVE sexual side effects with Effexor XR????

Yes actually. It delays ejaculation, but not drastically. For me, this is a benefit.

Also, orgasms seem to last longer/be more intense.
This is also something I experienced on low dose Zoloft. My assumption is that it has to do with the delay - the orgasm "builds". Just a guess.

Sex drive seems to be about the same.

I must note that I'm also taking 0.25 mg Risperdal at night, and since 5-HT2a antagonists can block the sexual side effects of serotonergic anti-depressants, that may be why I'm not experiencing any strong side effects sexually.
