I think itsnormal to question your sexuality at your age, no matter what your orientation. I personally don't see it as OCD but no-one can diagnose you on a forum. I think you are happy with your orientation aren't you? The pressure on gay people to change to straight is strong in our society so maybe that is getting to you. Be happy with who you are and don't care what pressures are on you.

It simply sounds like an irrational fear you have - for whatever reason.
