In brief: Yes but...

It is not indicated for that purpose, low dose selegiline will inhibit MAO b, and MAO b degrades Dopamine in the brain.
Dopamine levels in the brain will increase and increased Dopamine can help libido. Be very careful with your diet if you take more than 10mg per day. At that dose. Selegiline blocks MAO a and MAO b which can cause some foods/meds to raise your blood pressure to fatal levels.
