I tried Prozac for awhile as an experiment based on the "Listening to Prozac" book and found that Prozac reduced the frequency of my spontaneous thoughts about sex and reduced the desire for sex. However, I found normal response and ability once the decision was made to have sex....perhaps this is just a reduction in obsessive/compulsive psychology surrounding sex, not really a reduction in sex drive...??? >>

I've been on Prozac for over a year now and it hasn't reduced my sex drive even an inkling! I wish it did live up to it's reputation but I find my libido more out of control than ever.
