English term or phrase: pimp
a man who gets women
Japanese translation:himo onnatarashi asobinin
Explanation:
I have given three words.

himo - a man who lives from the money he receives from women who are usually prostitutes, and who collects customers for them. This corresponds to the literal definition of a pimp: From Myriam webster --

"Date: 1600
: a man who solicits clients for a prostitute "

Other words for this literal sort of pimp are ponbiki (someone who pulls customers for the prostitute) and baishunfu no teishu (the husband or master of a prostitute).

onnatarashi - literally "trailing women." This means "a man who gets a lot of women". Negative connotation.

asobinin - literally a "play-person." This means someone (male or female) who plays around. Not so negative as onnatarashi. Other words are "uwaki mono" (a floating person) meaning someone who is loose.

The Japanese characters are
himo ヒモ
onnnatarashi 女たらし
asobinin 遊び人
baishunfu no teishu 売春婦の亭主
ponbiki ポン引き
uwakimono 浮気者

There are other words too but I would recommend onnatarashi.

  -> Thanks. But aren't you going to come up with something else? There are probably plenty more like this. E.g. "irootoko" And what does your name mean?

agree  xxxmatyu9: "ponbiki" may be the best.
