Depends: What is your definition of "extremely high?" to whom are you comparing yourself? Is your sex life satisfying or is it frustrating? Do have thoughts and feelings about sex that intrude and interrupt your day? Are you able to satisfy yourself when needed? If you are not frustrated and your drive does not cause interference, then, "no worries." if obsessed and frustrated, discuss w/ therapist.
