It's completely normal to have a drive for sex but not like commitment. But maybe you need to find the perfect guy/girl! Whatever you decide there are people here to support you on your journey!

yes of course, some people dont like all the emotions and possible drama that comes with a relationship, sometimes just the sexual intimacy is enough for them.

You are certainly allowed to like whatever it is that you like. Your body is your own; whatever you choose to do with it is fine. Just be safe!

Yes, absolutely! Some people just enjoy sex but do not feel romantic attraction, or simply are not interested in a stable relationship. It's totally ok, we do not all want the same things! As long as you're clear to your sexual partners about what you want and do not want, it's alright. You're free to do whatever you wish with your sexual life!

Definitely, you are human after all. This is actually part of the aromantic spectrum. You can do your own research, but essentially people that are aromantic aren't too much into the romantic side of relationships, and sometimes prefer only the sexual side instead. Again, totally human. From what I understand, I'm guessing you don't want to be emotionally attached to people romantically. You could check out the aromantic community on here, which is in the lgbtq+ community. Lots of amazing people there, who also have more experience with aromantic relationships. Something that is important that with any sexual partner, its important to communicate that you don't want a romantic relationship.
