Possibly related?

I followed this discussion from In the Pipeline. I'm not sure this is related, as the information seems self-reported, and therefore anecdotal. The sample size is quite small, as well. The reference is from a study published in the Canadian Journal of Psychology about the rare side effect of yawning as a cause of orgasm in female study patients taking clomipramine, which can be found at the link below.

Thanks for posting. I'm not a medical doctor, so I have zero clinical insight on this matter.

However, apparently the yawning part of the side effect appears to be conserved in rodents: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.g... ("Desipramine induces yawning behaviour in rats.")
