15 Words For A Man Who Sleeps Around
Here we will be listing out and discussing 15 different ways a person can refer to men who cannot “keep it in their pants”.
Sometimes these are quite on the offensive side so using these with some discretion is advised so as not to pick a fight you are not ready for.
So, here they are:
- Don Juan
- Skirt chaser
- A ‘womanizer’ is a person who has many amorous affairs with women and sees them as flings.
- A ‘philanderer has many romantic affairs with women although they are all of no importance to him.
- A ‘gigolo’ is a male version of a prostitute or whore.
A Rakehell or rake was a term used in the early 16th and 17th century for an upper-class European man who loved pleasure. This hedonistic male enjoyed drinking and gambling and had many luxurious lovemaking relations with different women.
This term is still very much used today and even though he might not be into gambling or drinking, he has many amorous relationships.
This is a very popular one that we have Heard of at least a dozen times. Fun fact, Cassanova is not just a term for a male who has numerous romantic affairs. It is the middle name of a very popular man, Giacomo Girolamo Casanova.
He was an Italian writer and traveler who was known for his wit and ability to seduce women. He even wrote a memoir about his numerous love affairs.
The word casanova is mostly used for those who are rich, handsome, and influential or handsome enough to pull any woman to their side.
When you call a guy a womanizer, you are trying to say that he has numerous romantic relationships with women whom he has no plans to commit on a long-term basis. They are into flings, one-night stands, and any other brief romantic escapades that they can possibly get into.
This term is disapproving as it criticizes their behavior. It is beloved that they take advantage of women’s feelings and use them for lovemaking and otherwise to get what they want. Unlike other names, this term does not have any restrictions and can be used on anyone.
Having an origin in Spanish literature, a Lothario is a male who, just like a womanizer, is engaged to many women intimately with no intentions of any of them being long-term. A Lothario is smooth with his tongue, tells so many lies, and can manipulate many women.
A Lothario also prides himself in being able to get through to any woman. That is, they would woo a woman till she agrees to be with him after which they lure them to bed.
They are never in any relationship for too long and they do not care if they break any hearts. This title is not as popular as Womanizer but it is a negative title all the same.
5. Don Juan
A man who is called Don Juan should know that in the eyes of others, he is seen as a charismatic and intelligent fellow. He is also very confident and gets what he wants when he sets his mind to it. Unfortunately, his mind is only set on women.
A Don Juan is from Spanish literature and is known for embarking on many romantic conquests and taking pride in it.
They are keen on winning the affection of women even though it doesn’t mean much to them. They are also eager to get these women into the inner room more than they are in courting any of them.
When you call a man a stud, you are trying to say that he is successful, wealthy, and confident. It is a compliment to a man to celebrate him for who he is and what he has achieved.
The thing about studs is that they have many romantic pursuits. They have the means or seek happiness in that way as a way to satisfy themselves.
This term is not meant to chastise or disapprove of their behavior. They are ‘permitted’ to since they are wealthy and confident and seem to have it all. The term is more of a way to spot them and attach themselves to them.
This name here, “heartbreaker” is commonly used today as a nickname for the popular boys in school that all the girls seem to fawn over, or even for very cute, very handsome little boy children. It is, in society today, a name used to describe when the boys have looks that set the girls reeling or falling for them.
But in reality, this name is reserved for those boys who have serious commitment issues. For them, any girl they meet, they see them as simply a means to an end.
A simple way to ease their curiosity is to scratch their itch for a while and then change them. They don’t want to stay with one, they use and dump any girl they meet like the pickup artists they tend to mostly.
A lecher is, more or less, a man who only has thought and who will also always think about dirty things and have it in mind to act on them depending on the situation and what the girls are on hand at the time. A lecher does lecherous things. They want to touch anyone they might get in their net.
The name is a great fit for people of that type. Lechers generally just thinks all day and every day about dirty and intercourse thoughts every time he sees a young lady. He would undress her in his mind, and do all sorts of things with her in his head as a way to simply ease their nervousness.
While this name sounds fun to say and all, it’s not exactly the best sort of name for any male to be called. It is basically the male equivalent of a prostitute or whore.
A gigolo, simply put, is a man who sells his body or grants many intimate services, for a few favors or monetary gratification and affection.
This sort of behavior is usually frowned upon in society as it is seen as a derisive and derogatory means of acquiring favors and the like.
Usually, a gigolo is in a place of need and presents themselves in a seductive manner to make themselves seem attractive and to make someone want to use up their resources on them.
10. Skirt chaser
This is a colloquial term that refers to men who are habitually after women. It says that they are after anything in skirts and they just want to get what is under those skirts. It’s a very simple term that can be used to connote negative or neutral meaning depending on how the man goes about it.
For instance, a man who is married or engaged would be told this as a way to point out his wrongdoings whereas a bachelor would be forgiven and pardoned. A skirt chaser no matter how it is said, sounds and feels more condescending than the others.
A philanderer is also a man who specializes in many romantic affairs. Whether he is married or not, a philanderer will have many relationships, none of which hold any real importance to him. Unlike other men who sleep around, a philanderer does not have any particular skill in wooing women.
A philanderer may go after many women for lovemaking relations but that may not be his only reason. Other issues can push him to go into other amorous affairs. Another thing about the title Philanderer is that it is gender-neutral. You can use it for a male or a female.
A “Romeo” is simply a male lover. And as it says, a person like this is a lover to almost any woman he comes across.
Sometimes, she is very aware of being courted and wants to go with this *Romeo” and do anything to have some fun with him. With that, he scores. But he could also serenade her into such intimate acts.
A name like this being used means the person is probably eloquent in speech and can easily talk or persuade any woman to spend the night with him, it can also tell simply of the fact that they are male partners for all the intimate activities that they would be willing for. So this name works just fine to refer to them as.
A libertine is a person who engages in a lot of amorous affairs for his own pleasure. He is quite hedonistic and goes after women to satisfy himself.
A libertine is not one to care about societal norms and values. They would do things regardless of the opinions or views of others.
It is because of this that they have no moral restraints that will withhold them from engaging in so many romantic and lovemaking affairs. Libertine is a word that can be used for both genders.
This should be the most popular word on this list. Everyone is familiar with the term “playboy”. And this name does well as the mode of reference to a guy that sleeps around.
Similar to some of the names here on this list, this one might seem fun and funny to use on people, but on the contrary, it is not the best name to be called by a girl.
These kinds of people are usually very forthcoming with a girl until they no longer want her and they push her aside and move to the next one.
Hence being called a “playboy”. Albeit, while they ought to be playing video games and other games in general, they decide to play the girl’s heart and emotions which in turn earn them such a reputation.
The term “whorehound” can be considered the most disrespectful word for a man who sleeps around on this list. A whorehound is a man who has lovemaking relations with whores (prostitutes).
He may or may not have a partner, but he engages in many amorous affairs with prostitutes. While the other terms above can mean that the men have other options for the women they go around with, a whorehound sticks to hookers without a choice.
Like I said before, this term is very offensive and derogatory, and would not sit well with whoever it is thrown at. To avoid upsetting anyone, you can use the other terms on the list to be a tad more civil.
In retrospect, we see that there are different levels of different kinds of scum for most people in this society. And these men are just scratching the surface.
Going for multiple partners and sleeping around has never been good and due to that, it is normal that society shuns such behavior and would want to show its distaste for it.
And with the list provided above, we hope you now have a way to show that distaste without having too much in problems.
And maybe this would help to spur more people out of wanting to have multiple intimate meetings going on at the same time.
