Typically, a heroine will be introduced as having a significant other, which may be a husband, a boyfriend, or even a partner in a [[BelligerentSexualTension BST]] affair. The story will then show the aforementioned heroine being intimate with another man ([[GirlOnGirlIsHot another girl just doesn't pack the same punch]]), thus provoking jealousy in the audience by proxy. The nature of the affair varies, and the parties involved may be willing or unwilling. [[YourCheatingHeart Sometimes the girl is simply cheating]], sometimes it's in the form of the ScarpiaUltimatum, sometimes or the man may simply be pimping his sweetheart out to earn their bread. As you may expect, this is on the '''bad''' side of GoodAdulteryBadAdultery.

[[redirect:NetorareGenre]]->''"This made me depresssed."''
-->-- A ''Crossing Man and Woman'' reader, summing it up perfectly.

Netorare (寝取られ, lit. "cuckold", also commonly abbreviated as NTR) is a notoriously controversial genre of {{Hentai}} (or, in rarer cases, {{Ecchi}}), with a degree of infamy perhaps rivaled only by full-blown {{Guro}}.

Typically, a heroine will be introduced as having a significant other, which may be a husband, a boyfriend, or even a partner in a [[BelligerentSexualTension BST]] affair. The story will then show the aforementioned heroine being intimate with another man ([[GirlOnGirlIsHot another girl just doesn't pack the same punch]]), thus provoking jealousy in the audience by proxy. The nature of the affair varies, and the parties involved may be willing or unwilling. [[YourCheatingHeart Sometimes the girl is simply cheating]], sometimes it's in the form of the ScarpiaUltimatum, sometimes or the man may simply be pimping his sweetheart out to earn their bread. As you may expect, this is on the '''bad''' side of GoodAdulteryBadAdultery.

A fair portion of these works has the {{cuckold}}ing being done right in front of the established partner, usually with a "why couldn't you do this to/for me"-type verbal/emotional slap in the face.

Netorare (寝取られ, lit. "cuckold", also commonly abbreviated as NTR) is a notoriously controversial genre of {{Hentai}}, with [[PetPeeveTrope a degree of infamy]] perhaps rivaled only by full-blown {{Guro}}. Even [[WretchedHive 4chan]] is resistant of embracing the genre, and if one finds an example uploaded at certain shady websites, one would only need to look at the comments section to see the InternetBackdraft that will inevitably ensue.

As its name suggests, Netorare is essentially a genre whose goal is to project discomfort on the audience's part (much like horror flicks are intended to provoke unintended bowel movements), where the discomfort comes in the form of sexual jealousy. Typically, a heroine will be introduced as having a significant other, which may be a husband, a boyfriend, or even a partner in a {{BST}} affair. The story will then show the aforementioned heroine being intimate with another man ([[GirlOnGirlIsHot another girl just doesn't pack the same punch]]), thus provoking jealousy in the audience by proxy. The nature of the affair varies, and the parties involved may be willing or unwilling: sometimes the girl is simply [[YourCheatingHeart cheating]], sometimes it's in the form of a ScarpiaUltimatum, some other times, it's rape, or the man may simply be pimping his sweetheart out to earn their bread.

Of course, the parties involved may be of either gender. MostWritersAreMale, so commonly it's the woman who engages in the proceedings.

As one might effortlessly predict, many people seriously detest this genre/trope. It might have to do with the oft-idealised nature of relationships in the anime/manga culture, along with the fanbase's obsession with [[PuritySue purity]] -- a phenomenon apparent by the popularity of tropes like SacredFirstKiss, {{Lolicon}}, YamatoNadeshiko, or {{Moe}}. That is to say, Otakudom seems to have a strong connection with a specific, sugary perception of romantic relationships, built around pure, sincere, genuine commitment. Hence Netorare, being at the opposite side of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism, tends to rub people the wrong way. In spite of all the hate, some people are genuinely attracted to this kind of stories, for various reasons. Some holier than the others.
