I am a male with OCD I am constantly getting

Patient

Q: I am a male with OCD. I am constantly getting better then worse and back and forth. I used to be afraid of a tiny drop of urine that would drip into my boxer briefs after urinating but have since gotten over that. I now have a sudden fear of getting an erection have having pre ejaculate in my boxers and it drying up. I'm worried about others not knowing and I feel obligated to tell them. But it's any erection. And even if I just see or think of something I find sexually attractive, even without getting an erection, I'm afraid of ejaculation. I check my boxers all the time for stains then when I don't find them I feel obligated to wash my hands. I've stopped masturbating because of the few drops of semen that will leak out after I zip up. What should I do? My therapist says try and use distractions to get it out of my mind but it's hard when I know it's there and I feel bad if someone hugs me or if I touch the front of my pants.
