In brief: Possibly
The nerves around and in the capsule of the prostate will get radiated and there is a 20 percent chance this will effect your sexual function.
As far as treatments available the seed treatment has the least probability of effecting sex function.

In brief: Yes
One of the early effects of a seed implant of the prostate is the the ejaculate volume will decrease to almost nothing.
It typically does not interfere with erections at east early on but with time, there is an increased chance of impotence that is thought to be a radiation effect.
