I'm 17, and have been masturbating for the past 4

Patient

Q: I'm 17, and have been masturbating for the past 4 or so years. I've been masturbating to one fetish in particular. At my peak, I masturbated about 2-3 times a day to that fetish, but the past couple months, I have cut that down significantly to once a day. I have not had a girlfriend yet (because my parents won't let me), although I have a significant number of close female friends. One of my major concerns is that I won't be able to get aroused by ever having sex with a girl because my main/only source of arousal to date has been this fetish. Are my concerns warranted and is there anything I should be doing to help with this problem? Thanks in advance

Symptoms:  Only aroused by fetish
