The 'Heart Skips a Beat' singer was asked by Fabulous magazine whether he is addicted to anything.
"Shopping is my only addiction - some people get addicted to drugs or drink or sex," he began, before backtracking: "Well, having said that, I'm kind of addicted to sex."
The 2009 X Factor runner-up's last serious relationship - with Laura Henderson - ended two years ago.
Murs, 27, went on to say: "I'm not going to lie - I've enjoyed being single. But I've been careful. I don't hop in and out of beds, I'm not a male slag or anything.
"But I'm single, I'm a pop singer - if I said I hadn't slept with any girls you'd be worried about me! And my dad would be worried about me. And my management. And my friends."
