Hello, I am a psychiatrist.
To answer your question, Viibryd is a new antidepressant that isn't problematic the way that Effexor and most other antidepressants are in terms of causing sexual dysfunction.
Wellbutrin also does not cause sexual dysfunction, and neither does Remeron (although it can cause weight gain).
Does this make sense?
