How do you handle your crushes as a married person (or someone in an LTR?) Do I have a problem?

Please give me some healthy ways for dealing with the occasional crush. I tend to get infatuated with occasional men I meet. I love my husband (of 15 years), and would never do anything to hurt him, but damn, for the past 5 years it feels like life is toying with me and putting me through some test of will. Sex is good with him, and I am happy with the relationship. Still...
When it comes to the crushes, I feel a mixture of guilt, overwhelming desire, and entertain a various number of fantasies in my head. What really worries me is that I lately seem to move from crush to crush, and they never fully "die" down unless a new guy replaces it.
Does anybody else feel this way? Does this crushing ever stop? Has anybody ever done something about it other than just try and let these crushes pass?
