Other common terms used to describe futanari characters are "dickgirls" or "shemales", although these are often considered vulgar (The term "shemale" is typically used wrongly, since the futanari character typically possess a vagina. Shemale is considered a separate genre by many futanari fans). Futanari, along with "newhalf", are more polite terms having come into recent use, with futanari tending to refer specifically to actual hermaphrodites and "newhalf" tending to refer specifically to characters with female bodies but only male genitals.
Another way to describe futanari is "Any female-looking hentai character that contains the traits of a female, but also possesses the penis of a male, (not necessarily in addition to a vagina). The hentai character must also not actually be a boy crossdressing as a female." The arguement over which characters are crossdressers and which are really just "chicks with [penises]", is hard to find a solution to, which is why, generally, the idea that futanaris have to have vaginas is commonly accepted. Point is that technically, futanaris do not have to have vaginas, as long as they are not really boys.
