The ideal word, which can be either an adjective or a noun, should describe (or at least allude to) the idea that doing something anywhere and anytime with anyone, or that something is done anywhere, anytime, by anyone.

If no such word exists to satisfy all three above, then a word to satisfy the former two (anywhere and anytime) is OK too.

Update: I agree that some context should be given to better narrow down the choices. I mainly want to describe something (e.g. a service or goods) that would enable people to complete a task or to accomplish some goal anytime and anywhere.

  • ML, the best I can think of is "universe", but also "all" could be a good word.

    indiscriminate Not making or based on careful distinctions; unselective; Unrestrained or wanton; profligate. As in "He's an indiscriminate drinker - he'll drink anything with anyone, any time, any place". Commented Apr 20, 2013 at 19:59
  • @FumbleFingers That's a good one. Promiscuous might work too. The question could use some clarification of context, perhaps using xxx in a sentence. Commented Apr 20, 2013 at 22:03
  • @Bradd Szonye: Lots of words "might work" - but as you say, the question lacks sufficient context to make a meaningful choice. To be honest, I'm kinda going off these "single word requests", even though one of them gave me my most upvoted answer ever (and even then it wasn't the most upvoted answer for the question! :). I just don't see how most such questions improve the site for future visitors. Commented Apr 20, 2013 at 22:21

Profligate works as well, but there's no good single word. It's context-sensitive. The appropriate word might be anything from "slut" to "game" to "eager." I just don't find a single English word encompassing your meaning with precision.


How about:

ready :
1. prepared mentally or physically for some experience or action
2. willingly disposed
3. likely to do something indicated
4. immediately available

As in he's always ready to go

There's also the more informal

up for anything

I'll do it, you know I'm always up for anything.


How about a hyphenated word? Wide-open.
