NTR, one of the latest fetish genres to emerge from Japan’s at times disturbingly inventive erotic output, has been the subject of much recent discussion, having as it does one of the highest barriers to entry of any non-freakish pornographic genre.
The reasonably comprehensive definition of “NTR” as offered by Internet denizens:
“NTR is a slang abbreviation of ‘netorare’ [ ‘寝取られ’ – from the Japanese verb ‘netoru,’ meaning to steal a man or woman’s lover, literally ‘to sleep with and take,’ rendered as ‘NTR’ in Japanese (used as both a noun and a ‘suru’ verb for those wondering)]
It refers to situations where the protagonist and heroine are in a loving relationship and she is taken (sexually) by another man, or when there is unrequited love between protagonist and heroine and she is taken by another man.
This generally comes in either the consensual type or the rape type. There are also those who prefer the type where the situation ends with the protagonist losing his girl, and those who prefer it when the protagonist stages a come back.
Also NTR often falls into the type where the taker is a hot guy and the type where the taker is a dirty old man. The heroine may be the innocent type or the bitch type as well.
Some fans of the genre may identify most strongly with the protagonist being cuckolded, whilst others may prefer to identify with the man doing the taking. Some also identify with the heroine herself.”
NTR has lately become a staple of eroge, ero-anime and ero-manga (and, of course, doujinshi involving established characters), although of course themes of adultery and rape have long been fetish favourites in much Japanese erotica.
As a relatively new genre which seems to tickle the fancy of both wastrel masochists and rape fantasists whilst simultaneously straining the sensibilities of virgin hunter otaku, NTR seems to be rather more engagingly divisive than most creepy Japanese fetishes:
“NTR is dangerous stuff – it may be creepy and unpleasant, but you should learn just how arousing it can be.”
“NTR is supreme!”
“The protagonist’s fiancee is NTRed by some idiot whilst he has to watch… after that he marries her but never has sex with her whilst she becomes pregnant with the idiot’s kid. The idiot studies and becomes more successful than the protagonist.”
“Harsh! This stuff just pisses you off though, right? NTR lovers really get off on this?”
“What? Why can’t you get off to that?”
“It grosses you out whilst stiffening you up at the same time, doesn’t it?”
“You get 3 sources of emotional connection for the price of one (NTRer, NTRed, NTRee) – what a bargain NTR is!”
“A lot of appeal for creepy old guys, indeed.”
“Ones where the NTRer is the protagonist’s best friend are best!”
“It really is horrible, but you can really get off to it.”
“Ones where the NTRee woman is intelligent and tall are best!”
“It really makes you want to puke whilst making you rock hard at the same time…”
“Well, if it actually happened to you I don’t think it would be very arousing.”
“A sense of humiliation, corruption and perversion, all in one.”
“NTRing someone is OK, but give me a break from being NTRed…”
“Making the NTRed guy excited himself is important too.”
“I like the creepy old guy stuff.”
“The ones with some well hung kid stealing a guy’s wife are great.”
“I like it when she hates the scummy NTRer.”
“My girlfriend was actually NTRed. After that it became a weird fetish for me.”
“I like it when the NTRee says she can no longer go back to the NTRed guy’s little penis.”
“The most important element is the progress of the heroine from good morals to being controlled by her own corruption.”
“With some ugly guy it’s just like humiliation material. The best is with the girl falling for a hot guy.”
“Also when the guy ends up raising the hoy guy’s kid…”
“Am I the only one to prefer looking at this from the woman’s perspective? I think I identify more with her…”
“Nothing gets my heart pounding like NTR.”
“It seems everyone gets excited about NTR for different reasons, doesn’t it?”
“Anyone here actually NTRed anyone?
I was fondling and fingering a girl, and then I got her to call her boyfriend whilst I was doing this and tell him not to call her any more. She actually did it too, I laughed.
The volume on the phone was turned up and he was like ‘Eh… Why this all of a sudden?’ I laughed even more.”
“You are total scum, aren’t you?”
“I want to be NTRed.”
