Live on, but ...: How you displayed could be just normal and personally unique for you at this time as long as having never exhibited amorously leading to offend others with indecency. However, a detailed review of your sexuality since childhood to the present and your medical history & drug use over lifetime could be very useful to deduce possible underlying causes. So, seek evaluation as needed if still bothered.
