Gen-Z Dictionary: Puriteen

Recently, the term “puriteen” has been used regularly online, especially on TikTok and Instagram. The term was created to describe a person who is perceived to be “sex-negative” because they aren’t receptive to the online discourse around sexual freedom. Sex negativity refers to a mind-set that sex is inherently dirty, dangerous, risky, pathological or deviant.
