Ive been with this amazing guy for 2 years now. We have been sexually active for about 1 and a half years and because of that I stopped feeling the need to masturbate. Recently we have been having more frequent sex, but for some reason I have started to masturbate regulary.
Am I sex crazy or is this perfectly normal?

When it comes to sexual activity (or pretty much anything in life), there's really no "normal". We're just too variant as human beings. Masturbation is a completely different kind of sexual activity from partnered sex. It's sex with yourself. It's no better or worse than partnered sex, and partnered sex isn't a replacement for masturbation.
All that to say that how much or little you masturbate is perfectly okay, whether or not you have a partner. Additionally, people's libidos, or sex drives, can tend to fluctuate throughout their lifetimes so the fact that you're masturbating more now than you were previously can likely be explained by a perfectly healthy spike in your sex drive.
Nothing you're describing here is alarming in any way. It's just you experiencing your sexuality right now.
