Should We All Take Dylan O'Brien's Cue and Enter Our Slut Era?

Should We All Take Dylan O'Brien's Cue and Enter Our Slut Era? ...

Dylan OBrien tweeted on April 27. There were no updates, no follow-ups, and no clarifications. Its less about hooking up and less about attitude. During a July 29 episode of Chicks In The Office, OBrien joked that slut era was open to interpretation.

The term isn't very easily defined. When I searched slut era on Urban Dictionary (where else?) it had zero entries. Though Urban Dictionary turning up empty might be a historical feat in itself,it certainly doesn't help clarify things. OBrien's also been (albeit) vague about what slut era means.

The actor explained that his portrayal of Colin, a thirsty-for-attention micro-influencer, was inspired by his own slut era. "I guess there has never been a better time to unleash your inner slut." The actor added that it is also like a projection of where the world was heading.

The real question, then, is: How can we join in on OBriens slut era when we don't even know what it is?

Definition of the Slut Era

TBH, the slut era sounds to me like a more personal experience than anything else, so it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with your current level of sexual activity. In my slut era (i can't remember the last time i was touched by another human being), I was primarily a fan of slut era.

The key to a slut era is to enjoy everything you do. (Urban Dictionary does have a definition for sluttify, BTW: the act of slutty things) It's entirely up to you whether it's posting the thirst trap on IG, making eyes on someone across the bar, or simply licking your margarita glass tajin rim.

If you want to be a part of OBrien's slut era philosophy, you may always try twerking at work. Another key rule of his slut era ideology? Keeping some things to yourself. OBrien told E!, "Oh, that stays with me."

Is It Time To Recognize Our Own Slut Era?

I just have one question: Why not? Since this era is so personal (there are no minimum hookup requirements involved), embracing this concept or energy may be as simple as chatting up your favorite Bachelor Nation DMs or ordering oysters on a date. It may also involve having a lot of sex to each their own!

The slut era is less about your actions, but more about the attitude behind them. As long as you are doing it for you, congratulations, it's slut era worthy.

The idea is the same whether you refer to it as a slut era, a hot girl summer, or any other variation. It's the season of doing what you want, giving it whatever label feels appropriate.

Don't miss a thing.
