    Yaoi -why?-

    Okay.

    This isn't the regular day by day thread about how good yaoi is and blah blah blah..


    I want to know why many people are so into this form of anime/manga. Why is it that a lot of people like Yaoi or Yuri or whatever...but do not support it in Real Life.

    So confusing to me.

    Me...I'm not into Yaoi..and I don't think I'll ever get into it..but, I'm just curious as to why people like it so much. I want to know why..

    I also want to know what's the difference between guyxguy in anime and guyxguy in real life.

    For example, one of my friends LOVES yaoi..and I can not stand when she talks to me about it, because i'm just not into that stuff... Anyways, I asked her why she liked it so much...

    she never gave me a straight answer, other than your basic, 'because it's just soo kawaii!'

    -.-' okayyy....

    She also said how she just thinks guyxguy in rl is just wrong...

    wtf...can someone explain this? I don't think she's the only person who feels this way either..

    I have nothing against gays or bisexuals..I support actually...

    I'm just saying, I am very confused as to why soooo many people like yaoi. Why is it so special? And why do people love it, but in rl cannot stand it...

    Re: Yaoi -why?-

    (o_o) I like Yaoi, and I think she meet watching "Real man" Get it on. XD Gosh I hope that didn't sound as wrong as I wrote it.

    I support Gay/Bi people. (-_-) Ain't me, I have no problem with it, but I still get very Jealous when I see a hot guy locking lips with a man.

    A thought runs though my Head.

    I have you know I get over it, but I find many things "Hot"


    If your friend finds it "Cute" Must be the behavior in the Yaoi, and no I do not watch Yuri.

    Re: Yaoi -why?-

    My guess and reason as to why people like yaoi is because it looks way different than in real life. I mean just look at Sasuke and Naruto

    And now look at this guys

    I feel much better seeing yaoi than real life homosexuality.

    Re: Yaoi -why?-

    Most people are into Slash or BL than they are into Yaoi.

    Yaoi = harcore guy-on-guy buttsex made for women by women that involve original characters. Yaoi has little to no plot. The term "Yaoi" comes from the sayings:

    yama nashi, ochi nashi, imi nashi
    <TRANSLATION>
    "no climax, no punch line, no meaning,"
    or
    "No peak, no point, no problem."

    Yamete! Oshiri ga itai!
    <TRANSLATION>
    "Stop! My butt hurts!"

    BL means "Boy's Love". The original term used in the 80's was Shounen-Ai, but it was disused and Shounen-Ai was then referred to mean "real-life pedophilia". BL focuses on the relationships of a boyxboy/guyxguy pairing rather than the sex.

    Despite popular belief, Graviation and Loveless are NOT BL or Yaoi. They are strictly Shoujo with BL undertones, because the story as a whole do not focus on the relationship or the sex.

    Slash = noncanon fanpairings between popular characters such as Naruto and Sasuke.

    Most of the series that are labeled "Yaoi" that have been released in America are actually BL series. The only way to know which is which is with the content. If there isn't any sexual intercourse whatsoever than it's not Yaoi.

    Yaoi and BL as well as Yuri are all made by women for women. Yes, Yuri is for women. Real lesbian anime porn is just part of Hentai. Yuri is basically the same as Yaoi. Just replace the penises with vaginas and that's basically it. Both have a same-sex character playing the man and the woman. Both are drawn in the typical pretty/beautiful Shoujo way.

    True anime/manga porn made specifically for gay men is called Gei-comi. The major difference between Gei-comi and Yaoi is that Gei-comi is more hardcore and actually has bodily fluids. Think about that for a second.

    Oh yeah. There's a third category attached to Yaoi. June. <pronounced "Joo-nay"> June is a combination between the two. Sexual intercourse and revolving around the relationship as well.

    Also, Yuri has no subcategories like Yaoi. Yuri refers to both hardcore and softcore fluff. The term "Girl's Love" isn't used at all in Japan and "Shoujo-Ai" also refers to "real life pedophila".
