Of course not: This happens to every young person. In our era of "pop" psychology, there are plenty of people who want to make everything normal into a problem. Ignore these folks. A person can get into a bad habit of having casual sex with many partners & this has been called "sex addition", but this is a far cry from being a normal young adult which you describe.
