The NTR genere is quite a curious genre in hentai. I mean this genre induce rage to most of the readers, yet this genre still persist in hentai and that alone I find very curious. Don’t worry, this post is very work safe.
Quoting Urban Dictionary, NTR is the Japanese acronym for Netorare, used to define a genre of Eroge (Hentai Game), meaning “Cuckold”. In short, the main protagonist’s loved one(s) are taken or seduced away from him and the heroine might be willing or unwilling. This is to cause an emotion of deep jealousy on the reader.
Looking at it from a normal everyday guy’s perspective, this is as repulsive as it can get, so why does this kind of genre in hentai exist?
In my opinion, NTR is a secret expression of masculinity in the eyes the more serious H-otaku, as being able to take away another girl from a guy is an expression of power and masculinity, or it is the result of the frustration of the otaku that can’t acquire a female mate because of the more dominant males and the NTR genre is his desires materialized. There’s this meme going on amongst hardcore otakus which is called 3DPD, meaning 3D Pig Disgusting. If a 2D waifu loving otaku would be asked why doesn’t he like real women so much, he might just answer you by simply saying “3DPD”.
I think the NTR genre owes its life because of the 3DPD. culture of the otaku as most serious otaku has given up on the prospect of being able to get a girl due to various reasons. In 2D, there are no restrictions and attaining the ideal female mate is possible.
Most males who peruse hentai outside Japan will never understand 3DPD unless you’re well educated in internet memes, as this is a phenomenon only common to the hardcore otaku especially in Japan where acquiring a female partner is made difficult due to social and economic pressures and as long as the average male in Japan is unable to find a female partner, I think the NTR genre in hentai will persist.
It makes me a little sick to my stomach to read anything with it. I know that sounds really sensitive a bit “pansy-ish” but, I cannot help it. Very interesting analysis on its popularity though. Anytime I see it posted on Fakku there are more bad comments than anything else. There is a surprising amount still floating around. Different strokes for different folks I suppose.
Pretty much as you said. People who get off by reading doujinshi about women being seduced away from their guys are pretty hard to understand.
Kudos that you used Nagare Ippon’s work. He’s one of the masters of NTR, and will make you rage and hard at the same time.
It’s really simple actually: people who enjoy NTR are psychologically “M”. They enjoy the pain and dispair that is indiced in their minds.
Not so sure about that. In my opinion, I think there are other few reasons why there are guys who enjoy NTR other than being “M”…
Tbh, I’m a pretty sadistic person in real life, there’s been many times when i’ve stabbed my mate the face or the hand with a kitchen knife, and I often wonder how I can act so casually doing my fucked up deeds, I’m most likely an “M” but even to me the thought of Ntr makes my blood boil and makes me wanna go on a rampage, I don’t think ntr can be commonly associated with being an “M” because those are two whole different leagues of sadisticness.
I see. Thanks for your comment!
What the hell do you think you’re going on about?
“I think the NTR genre owes its life because of the 3DPD. culture of the otaku as most serious otaku has given up on the prospect of being able to get a girl due to various reasons.”
No, I hate 3D because I hate 3D. Real people are disgusting. It’s like how you would find a bug disgusting. I look at people in the same way. 2D is perfect.
That is certainly a new perspective to look things at from. Thanks for your comment!
@Anon: Enjoy your delusion.
Hahaha, I can imagine to someone who’s longing is to touch a real women is so desperate they bury it in denial of reality (“3D”) that cuckoldry would be about as shocking and outrageous an act as one could perpetuate. Go read up about cuckoldry in the real world, how and why it is done, and you will have your answer as to why NTR exists. It’s a common (and cross-cultural) fetish among possessive patriarchal societies.
