English term or phrase: raunch monster
I think this refers to someone who participates in unseemly, illicit sexual activities with little concern for the identity of the other individual. The term comes from a novel in my contemporary English literature class.

Lustmonster
Explanation:
Apparently, raunch is a back-formation from raunchy and means lewdness. Long story short, I would translate it with Lustmonster, but you could use the colloquial equivalent geil and say Geiles Monster.

Cheerio,
