Hotwife vs. Cuckold vs. Netorare
I am a big fan of netorare comics. For those of you that may not know, Netorare is a japanese term and is often translated as cuckolding. However, I think the word cuckold, as we understand it in American culture, is a bit misleading.
Netorare, translated as best as I can tell, means “taken away by sleeping with”. Now, this differs from what I consider hotwife novels and movies. Those stories revolve around a husband and wife agreeing to invite another person into their sex life, oftentimes to spice up things in an otherwise dull arrangement. There may be some angst on the husband’s part, but ultimately everyone is happy with the situation and the couple find their sex lives transformed by the experience.
Cuckold stories sometimes include hotwife storylines. However, cuckolding often leads to hardcore humiliation of the husband. Sometimes, these stories end with our beloved wife giving up everything to be with her lover (netorare). However, most cuckold stories, and I think the most popular ones, are the stories that end with the husband coming to terms with the new relationship and accepting his life as a submissive cucky boy. And they live happily ever after (HEA ending.)
And then there’s netorare, sometimes abbreviated as NTR. The stories, comics and movies I like the most are when the often reluctant wife or girlfriend is given impossibly mind-blowing sex. Sex so good that she can’t live without it. The best stories, in my mind, are the ones that have multiple sessions with the lover, with or without the husband or boyfriend’s knowledge, until the woman can no longer stand it and gives in to her lust for this person. Sometimes, at the end, hubby finds out and is reduced to jerking off as his wife gets taken by a better man.
This type of storyline isn’t for everyone and that’s all right. The great thing about the Internet is that there is a little something for everyone. However, as a writer I see my stories traveling a distinct path from cuckold to netorare, although many end with hubby broken by his wife’s desires and forced to become a cuckold slave(Happy For Now, or HFN). Still, I hope to have an idea for a kickass netorare story very soon where the husband (or boyfriend) loses everything at the hands of an alpha male.
What do you think? Overthinking the subject? What kind of Cuckold story do you like?
