when a human being or other life form proactively seeks out another for sexual gratification.
I am on the prowl 24/7. Even at the DMV or a rest stop.

2.
A person, usually a woman, who is out looking for a male companion. She usually seeks a man with money, a nice car, and someone who pays for her drinks. Women can be on the prowl in packs, particularly in places like the club, at the mall, or on the streets. They often aggressively pursue their prey and will put it on them as soon as they are given the chance.
It seems like there are a lot of women on the prowl tonight. It looks like I'm getting lucky.
