With Riker even in S1 they didn't want to write him like his premise.
At the beginning they tell us he's the guy who likes to have fun and amuse himself, the big playboy risk taker.
Good idea, although they never once wrote an episode where he came off like that.
Him parading around in that male gigolo suit just to get laid, fits the bill to me.
They had individual scenes where he seemed like a walking hormone, but he rarely seemed to be having fun on the job, he rarely seemed like a cowboy risk taker. And even his libidinal nature only came through in those specific scenes that focused on them.
