Yaoi is a popular term for female-oriented fictional media that focus on homoerotic or homoromantic male relationships, usually created by female authors. Originally referring to a specific type of dōjinshi parody of mainstream anime and manga works, yaoi came to be used as a generic term for female-oriented manga, anime, dating sims, novels and dōjinshi featuring homosexual male relationships.

Yaoi began in the dōjinshi markets of Japan in the late 1970s/early 1980s as an outgrowth of shonen-ai. BL (Boys Love, another term for yaoi) creators and fans are careful to distinguish the genre from “gay manga,” which are created by and for gay men.

The main characters in BL usually conform to the formula of the seme who pursues the uke.
Yaoi is what keeps fans going.

Yaoi is a Japanese word, which is actually something of an acronym. It comes from "YAma nashi, Ochi nashi, Imi nashi", which means "no climax, no point, no meaning".

In speech and writing, it's a slang term used to refer to stories that focus on homosexual relationships, usually between men. Yaoi tends to involve graphic sex, often with little or no plot. The female equivalent is yuri.

A related genre is shonen-ai, or "boys' love", which tends to involve less sex and more cuddling (and plot).
I love reading yaoi fanfiction!

Anime, manga, or fanfic that depicts explicit relationships between two males. Usually focuses on the passionate/ lustful/ physical side of the relationship, unlike shounen-ai which focuses on the romantic/ loving/ emotional side. Usually R rated or higher.
Even if you have no problem with homosexuality, I would not recomment showing yaoi to your kids.

There's different levels of yaoi. Some are light (shonen-ai) and some are pretty bad. It can be anywhere in between, too.
Let's watch some yaoi!
