In my experience, it is capable of inducing anorgasmia -- this happened for me at a dose of several milligrams. But to reduce sexual desire? Possibly, but not as far as I know. Reduce motivation? As a dopamine antagonist, you might expect the possibility at high doses. Induce sweating? Probably not.

That happens to me all the time here. Perhaps I think faster than I can type. I also don't do a very good job of proofreading.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
