What does Netorare mean?

Netorare, commonly abbreviated as NTR is a popular subgenre of hentai manga and anime, revolving around the subject of cuckoldry.

It usually depicts the act of cuckolding, where an observer is retaining sexual satisfaction by watching their partner being involved with someone else.

Like Omorashi, “Netorare” too turns a feeling that is commonly perceived as undesirable into something gratifying. In the case of NTR, this is the jealousy one feels while watching their spouse cheat.

Although “Netorare” usually depicts women to be the Cuckoldress, sometimes it is the female in a relationship that is getting Cucked.
