Define it: You and essentially all your male peers enjoy yourselves when you're alone and are thinking things and looking at pictures even if your parents say it is wrong and not to do it. That's being human. If you are unable to take your thoughts off sexuality to do the other things you must do (learning, work, play) or are missing class because you're obsessing over erotica, then see you doctor.

If you do need to get seen, your physician will determine whether you need talk-treatment -- this will teach you about yourself, you'll discover some good things about you and gain power to control stuff -- and/or some medication. By the way... if Dad's a reasonable guy, have you talked with him? Cheers.
