    Sex: the expense is damnable, the position is ridiculous, and the pleasure fleeting.
    -- Samuel Johnson

    :mad: :mad:

    All of a sudden my non-existent libido has returned, and seems to be trying to make up for lost time. Could I speak to it, I would say: Go away, and stay away. I was happier with you gone.

    But as it is I feel about ready to start humping people's legs, like some sort of demented, attention-starved beagle. That is, if beagles were ever a grotesquely overweight 230 lbs.

    What in the hell is going on here? Is this some sort of weird case of meds reaching a therapeutic level? And the strangest thing is, this has all come about in the past hour or so. I had no sense this was going to happen.

    Another thought I've had: I've wondered off and on for a while if I wasn't really marginally bipolar, not just a unipolar depressive. Not that this sort of thing happens all that often, certainly nowhere as often as I feel depressed, but I seem to have weird "spikes" like this once in a rare while. In fact I can't remember the last time anything like this has come on. At least four or five years.

    Anyway, hopefully it will pass by tomorrow. It's rather irritating. I do NOT like it.

    Generally speaking, anti-d's are known to kill sex drive in men, and I imagine its the same for woman. My experience was weird, at first it actually increased my "hornyness" as it were, was like being a teenager all over again, but after a couple months the reverse was go a good 3 days or so without feeling any real urges to do anything, which for me is no real problem since im single, and will always be single, but for a married guy, someone in a long term relationship...or someone that really wants sex, thats a pain in the ass.

    Anywayz im off the meds now, have been for well over a month. My sex drive? back to normal I guess, that is I feel horny most days.

    Hey dont knock it, if you can find someone to have that physical relationship with, go for it.

    And depression can do it too - however it comes back as you get better.

    Don't know what to tell you, I've no experience like yours, only find it odd that tho I'm lonely a lot, and miss the sensation of someone loving me, I don't want anyone that close to me - physically or emotionally. Strange creature, homo sapiens: too analytical, not enough "here".

    damned if I know....:blink:

    I think sex is great!
    Thats why I want to become a sex therapist! =D
  7. I, too, often find the urges unbearable. Everywhere I go, desirable women throw themselves at me. I control myself from temptation by imagining they're fans of Thomas Huxley. Disgust purges my libido with the force of El Nino.

    Uuuugh. The largest effect I've found with anti-depressants and depression is the sex drive! Up and down and all over the place and too horny to stand it and triggered by thoughts of sex... It's enough to drive someone mad!

    Work on your shoulder muscle endurance. It'll help.
