    Re: Wats Yaoi?

    This is the Wikipedia definition of the word:

    Yaoi is a publishing genre which originated in Japan and often encompasses manga, dōjinshi, anime, and fan art. It focuses on homosexual relationships between male characters and is generally sexually explicit.

    Some Westerners consider yaoi to be synonymous with shōnen-ai or BL, which contains similar themes; however, shōnen-ai material is not sexually explicit. The yaoi phenomenon has spread beyond Japan: examples of what is called "American yaoi" now exist.
    for more info here is the link to the page:

    Yaoi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I hope this helps.

    Yaoi is nothing more than gay anime, manga, and other art forms. There is also Yuri which applies to females because yaoi is for the male version. But yeah Wikipedia has a good defintion so try that out, too.

    A really simple description? Disgusting filth like Hentai... Although, some yaoi is set in funny scenes... Like the Reno and Cloud one in 7th Heaven...
