    This is a perfect illustration of the double standard that exists. A man who sleeps with many women is usually called "a player" which doesn't have the negative connotation of "a slut". If you want to insist on the negative nature of this behave, the term "a male whore"or more familiarly "a man slut" is used.

    Colloquially some people say 'man-whore' but I don't think its proper english. I'd go with womanizer.

    I guess it depends on what you consider slang, which is what Alaor is looking for. "Womanizer" definitely isn't American slang these days, especially not in my generation.

    Also you could call the man a slut, even if it is generally applied to women, it might then be more of an insult.
