@cicerone imposter,
Not the one I'm looking for, but Bill Clinton would be an example of one. The reference isn't modern, like womanizer or gigolo. Thanks for the help man!

Incorrigible roues and dissolute wastrels always use one of these.

@Zah03,
Related to this description, there is the satyr. These were methodological creature known for orgies and bacchanals...associated with
seduction and romping about the woods with nymphs. We all know about them nymphs.

"As Dionysiac creatures they are lovers of wine and women, and they are ready for every physical pleasure. They roam to the music of pipes (auloi), cymbals, castanets, and bagpipes, and they love to chase maenads or bacchants (with whom they are obsessed, and whom they often pursue), or in later art, dance with the nymphs , and have a special form of dance called sikinnis. Because of their love of wine, they are often represented holding wine cups, and they appear often in the decorations on wine cups."

@Olivier5,
Not the one I'm looking for. It's one of those frustrating, tip-of-the-tongue times when you know the answer is out there. Thanks for the help!

Roberta is closer on this one. I'm not looking for any term related to sexual assault.

@Ragman,
Cool, I am interested in looking at those references. Amazing since everyone has heard of a nymph and their activities!

The names you wrote are very good ones. Is there a reason you are looking for something different? Are you looking for something like incubus (demon seducer)? Satyr (nymph counterpart)?
