Just a moment, I'll dig around for that post I did for another thread. Here.
The central fantasy in Netorare is losing one's partner to someone (who, seeing how Netorare fans seem to get kicks out of such, can be losers and even simply vile). Through sex.
Also, it's most prevalent to start from a happy setting, i.e. none of those "we had been fighting" situations. It's just, here you are, happy with the perfect girl you don't deserve but she loves you, BAM here comes some random asshole who rapes/seduces her, she realises what a total loser you are, she dumps/forgets you. Added bonus if she's turned into a depraved nympho who will take anyone BUT you.
As for the beginning, it is always happy, perfectly or nearly so.
As for the middle, the woman's change of heart is always induced by (somehow superior) sex.
As for the ending, the protagonist never gets his woman back.
Out are any instances of Your Cheating Heart
where the woman has any pre-existing thought to leave her guy, or the starting situation is anything less than loveydovey (it tends to start with "real love"). Out are those where the guy isn't deeply in love with her. Out are those where the woman's character itself is untrustworthy or flippant (her change is more dramatic if she's constant and faithful). Out are those where she leaves him for money, status, better looks, better character... it's always the sex. Out are those where he gets back to that guy / those guys that took her from him. Out are those where they get back together and/or reconcile (she just disappears from his life, except perhaps for cases where he can follow her situation "from the outside" for further hurts). Mostly, out are those where she doesn't change from a loveable little wifey to an inexcusable slut.
Out are those where he isn't forced to somehow witness the details of her infidelity and change.
Out are those where he's shown to get over it.
Need I go on?
