Hello sh3101-ga,

I have found an article about getting rid of unwanted thoughts.
Here is part of the article:

"Thought-stopping to relieve stress - Thought-stopping is a process of
concentrating on an unwanted thought and then suddenly stopping and
clearing your mind. When practiced repeatedly on an unwanted thought,
over time the unwanted thought occurs less often. Eventually the
thought may not occur at all or will be easy to dismiss immediately."

It gives you a 5 step process to get rid of the unwanted thoughts.

If that does not help, and it's affecting your daily life and
upsetting you, I suggest seeing a therapist who can help you figure
out why you're having the thoughts and how to control them.

If this answer requires further explanation, please request
clarification before rating it, and I'll be happy to look into this

Have sex.  Once you get it over with, you won't think about it so much.

That all depends ...

Hypnotism maybe?

Depends on your age, personal status and the nature of the thoughts.
If your married or have a significant other, have more sex. Try more
variety. Obssessive thoughts can take any form. If you are so
distracted that you can't concentrate, that suggests other problems.
Are your thoughts about illegal activity? Obssessive sexual thoughts
and poor impulse control will get you into a lot of trouble.

Are you a male or female, how old are you?  

Some people are more sexual than others.  If you feel it is a bit
obsessive, then perhaps you have a sexual addiction (to masterbation).
 I'm stating this because I know two people who have this problem.

Again, if you feel you are obsessed with sex, you should speak to a
therapist.  SEeking therapy is actually a piece of cake, expecially if
you have insurance.   The first visit you talk about some basic
background, then you can gradually lead into the concern over your
sexual overthinking.  You end up looking forward to these sessions
because its an unbiased person, who is a professional and anything you
say is VERY CONFIDENTIAL - strictly confidential.

Since you posted this, then you obviously have a concern.  I think you
will feel much better talking to someone.  That's my input.  Your
possible obsession may be hindering on other issues which need to be
