Sure: This is fairly common especially for a teenaged male. If you're obsessed with erotica and are missing appointments and other things you need to be doing (learning, relationships), get help from your physician. Otherwise, you're fine. Vary your technique to prepare you for different possible partners, and maybe think about that one special person who'll be for you. Best wishes.
