Futanari defined

Futanari, a compound word meaning “two form” in Japanese, can mean both the subjects of a special type of porno anime or manga (commonly known as hentai), or the genre itself. Futanari depicts hermaphrodites, intersex or other people with female bodies and cocks, whether or not those cock like organs are enlarged clitorises, or they possess both cocks and pussies. The term also encompasses male characters with both sets of sexual organs, but these are usually excluded.

Other common terms used to describe futanari characters are “dickgirls” or “shemales”, although these are often considered vulgar.  “Futanari”, along with “newhalf”, are more polite terms, with “futanari” tending to refer specifically to actual hermaphrodites and “newhalf” tending to refer specifically to characters with female bodies but only male genitals.

The term futanari is usually reserved for characters drawn in an anime art style. Female characters that share similar characteristics with futanaris but are drawn in a Western style are usually simply referred to as dickgirls. Male characters with both sets of sexual organs are usually referred to in the West as “vaginaboys”.

“Futas”, as the female characters are often called, fall into several categories:

  • The traditional form of futanari in which the female character is depicted as having both male and female sexual organs (the penis and balls sprouting out above the clitoris and pussy).
  • A variation on this form in which the cock takes the place of the clitoris.
  • A variation on the two above forms in which the balls are omitted (i.e. the character will have a cock but no balls).
  • Enlarged or hypertrophic clitoris in which the character has no set of male sexual organs per se. This is still arguably included under the blanket term futanari.
  • Shemale or newhalf style in which the character has a cock and balls, but lacks a pussy. This is sometimes depicted as the result of a gender swap operation.
