Controlling the male sex drive

I'm tired of being dominated by my hormones. I waste vast amounts of time and energy thinking about and having sex, and I'm constantly being distracted by sexual thoughts. Sometimes I think it would be better--now that I've sired all the children I plan to--to just get out of the sex game altogether. (I'm 39, married, three children.) Castration would be a little extreme (permanent) and I don't know exactly what the effects would be. I'm sure there are drugs that can help, but I don't know how effective they are, how safe they are for long-term use, or even what they're called or how to get them.

Is there any practical relief for this problem available today?
