It's hard to call anorgasmia a side effect when it's a fully expected effect.

In fact, if you were suffering from premature ejaculation and you went to a doctor about that problem, guess what the doctor would give you? You'd get a script for Paxil!

It's beyond my comprehension why anyone would take an SSRI. They fail for the vast bulk of patients and they almost invariably have sexual side effects. Read what an expert has to say about these nifty "wonder drugs":
