Definition - What does Ethical Slut mean?

An ethical slut refers to a person who is openly non-monogamous and views sex as a good thing for all parties involved. They are sex-positive. They see sex as a pleasurable and beneficial experience. They are open about these beliefs and are honest with their partners. They do not lead them into believing that their physical intimacy can lead to anything else.

Kinkly explains Ethical Slut

The term “ethical slut” comes from the book The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy. The book is a guide on how to lead a non-monogamous lifestyle that is honest and considerate of other people's feelings. It discusses how such a lifestyle can lead to personal growth. A person who is interested in multiple sexual partners will benefit from reading the book.
