Normal : At 17, it's perfectly normal to think about sex a lot, and it's not unusual to be distracted by sexual thoughts. There's no way to avoid this, but masturbation can help take your mind off sex for a while, until you get horny again. Avoiding ejaculation will only make the problem worse. The good news is that this gets better as you get older...Which is also the bad news.
