In brief: Possibly
If you have other symptoms of ocd, otherwise you may just be going through a phase.
Or you find it so pleasant and so irresistible that you arethhinking about it all the time. Seek counselling if it is interfering with your life.

In brief: Very likely, yes.
By definition OCD contains the word "obsessed".
Generally when we say we are obsessed about something it's because we don't like a specific thought, feeling or behavior we have that contriols us and we don't control it. To rise to the level of a disorder it has to impact our life negatively, cause problems and appear to be out of our willful control. That's when professional help is needed.

In brief: Even if not.....
Whether you are portnoy reborn or not doesn't matter. Ssris (such aa fluoxetine -prozac) are used with great effect to treat ocd.
They also dampen libido and orgasms more difficult. That's the ticket! i doubt without frequency, we can tell if your ocd.
