Is it normal to be aroused by things that aren't supposed to be sexual, for example the models (who's poses are very de-sexualized) in a painting course or an anatomy diagram? Does this mean that I have too strong of a libido or that I masturbate too much?

What a curious thing.

There's pretty much no limit to what people find arousing, so being aroused by art models or anatomy diagrams? Not that unusual, and it certainly doesn't mean that your libido is too strong or that you masturbate too much.
