    The difference between Shounen-ai and Yaoi is rather simple.
    Shounen-ai is mainly just the romance side of it, it doesn't really go past cuddling and kissing. Basically, it's all the cute and fluffy stuff.
    Yaoi is full blown sexual content, usually with tiny elements of Shounen-ai put in place to give it story, and to give a point to the sex.

    However, to throw another spanner in the works... both terms Shounen-ai and Yaoi don't mean the same as what they do in Japan.
    Above I've explained what these terms mean in the west.
    In fact Shounen-ai in Japan was a brief type of manga that is now terribly dated and not made anymore.
    What we called Shounen-ai is now called Boy's Love (in English) in Japan.
    In Japan Yaoi isn't just used to explain the more explict stuff, it's used to pretty much explain everything.
    Okay.... I did not explain that well... so I'll link you all to an article explaining it all, so much better than I did. ^^

    I also highly sugguest reading this article too...

    If you were ever confussed as to what Yaoi really is, and isn't. This is the place to go.

    Shonen-ai is good but only in small doses, at least for me.
