What's excessive?: It becomes a problem if, and only if, you're so focused on enjoying your body and on human sexuality that you're missing out on other things in life that you should be doing -- being with people, learning, working. You'll know whether this is true for you. Fantasy is a dead end, while there are people around you -- perhaps without perfect bodies -- but far better for you to befriend ; maybe love.
