easy

From Old French aisie, past participle of aisier.

easy (comparative easier, superlative easiest)

Positive
easy

Comparative
easier

Superlative
easiest

  1. Requiring little skill or effort.
    The teacher gave an easy test to her students.
  2. (informal, derogatory) A person who readily consents to sexual activity, often with anyone.
    That guy sure has a reputation for being easy.

With respect to the definition "consents to sexual activity", the words fast and easy are often used interchangeably, but they are not exactly the same. And the terms are subjective, they are based on the typical customs for the society where they are used. Where someone offers less reluctance than is normally expected, they may be considered easy. Where someone is more readily interested, but not necessarily less reluctant, they may be considered fast. Or both, depending on the circumstances.

For example, if it is typical practice in a society for someone to show that they are of the type with whom it is acceptable to be having sex, by offering gifts, attention or other symbolic representations of value, and the person being wooed doesn't require them, but is essentially willing to do so if asked or wants to do so as soon as meeting the other person, that might be considered easy. However, where someone expects attention such as dating, if typical practice in a society is, if the other person is acceptable, to engage in sexual activity after three or four dates, someone who does so on the second date might be considered fast but might not be considered easy. Someone who does on the first date might be considered either, or perhaps both.
