* Roz from DumbingOfAge is a big believer in safe and consensual sex and the right to be allowed to do whatever she wants with her own body. It's partly out of belief and partly to rebel against her elder sister, a US Congresswoman who ran on a very conservative platform.
** Joe from the same comic is an subversion, he finds it very important that everyone involved is consenting and having a good time but also holds a very dehumanizing view towards any potential partner (i.e. every walking woman above legal age).

** Roz's ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' counterpart sees herself as this, but the fact she once had sex with a guy who explained he was a recovering sex addict, refusing to believe such a thing existed, suggests she's not as ethical as she thinks she is.

* ''Webcomic/GirlsWithSlingshots'' has Hazel's boyfriend Zach, who slept with at least three hundred other women before dating her. He describes it as "helping virgins have a good first time, and helping elderly women feel loved again". Zach's relationship with Hazel is actually an inversion; he wanted to settle down and raise a family with her, and she just wanted to have sex, which was a sticking point between them [[spoiler: and ultimately, a deal-breaker]].
** Darren the drag queen encourages the whole group to get STD testing done when Thea learns Angel was sleeping around, and explains to Hazel that he's getting tested even though he got his results in last week... because he's slept with four strangers since then.

* ''ComicBook/{{Alias}}'': ComicBook/LukeCage, according to [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]] at the start of the second arc. She says he likes sleeping with superwomen (including Jessica, onscreen, and Carol themselves; Carol also lists [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Jessica Drew]], [[ComicBook/WestCoastAvengers Tigra]], and ComicBook/SheHulk), to which Jessica responds that she thought he was a NiceGuy. Carol insists that he ''is'' a good man and his sex life has nothing to do with it.

* In the StarTrekNovelVerse, several cultures among the LoadsAndLoadsOfRaces fit the trope. The Deltan, Efrosian, Argelian, Rianconi and Risian cultures are all examples (though they differ in how they express it). The trope is explored in some depth in the ''Literature/StarTrekTitan'' series. Xin Ra-Havreii is an Efrosian, a culture where respectful sexual contact between work colleagues (or anyone you find attractive) is perfectly acceptable, indeed celebrated. Ra-Havreii also calls the Rianconi an “enlightened culture” upon discovering they’re the same. However, another character, Aili Lavena, complicates the trope. Her race exist in two life phases- an amphibious youthful/breeder stage and an aquatic form later on. The aquatic form is an EthicalSlut culture, but those in the amphibian stage are supposed to dedicate themselves to family life and avoid such sexuality. Lavena gave in to temptation and essentially tried to be an EthicalSlut too early, abandoning responsibility to her children. As such, she is now an EthicalSlut who is a non-EthicalSlut.

She also flirts openly with Luke and shares tender moments with Eleanor. She's not presented as bad and is shown to properly care for Eleanor in a romantic way.
