From this study (3 weeks ago):
Just a strange blood flowing/cool (temp) feeling in my penis. Started as a tingling cool feeling while on buspirone (a week into it) then a few days later lost ability to get erection, lost interest in sex, plus symptoms above. Now it's a week since I've been off buspirone after a two week use. Just now getting erection abilities back but interest in sex still low. Semen amount very low and/or of dry consistency. Also get that strange blood flowing feeling penis. No pain though.
From this study (8 months ago):
