Perhaps you focus on attention received from other men, expericing it as affirming and boosting your self-esteem ? Some have described a potential result of earlier sexual abuse, of at some level seeing oneself as only justified and valid through being sexually attractive and by atracting such attentions.
The lack of privacy can ve very inhibiting for anyone. I agre that cognitive therapy would be the best way to find your solutions. The focus may be not so much on WHY you have these inonvenient ideas ( "why" can sometimes be unanswerable, and seeking an answer keeps you focussed on the behaviours and reactions you want to stop )
