Yaoi is a popular term in anime and manga-fan circles. It means "boys' love" in Japanese. It is female-orientated anime or manga usually by female authors that is focused on homoerotic relationships and features idealised homosexual relationships. Since You guys can't tell the difference between shonen-ai and yaoi here is the main difference: shoen-ai is really graphic gay porn, considered hentai. Yaoi is as explained above. Yaoi themes pop up in anime/manga like Ouran High School Host Club and Hetalia Axis Powers but some "fangirls" find it in other shows/manga like Naruto or One Piece. The characters involved are usually beautiful teenage boys in their early to mid teens but in Hetalia Axis Powers, it is adults.
Yaoi is pretty much summed up by Hikaru and Kaoru's "forbidden brotherly love" act.

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).

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.

A type of anime that involves gay male pairings. AKA BUTTSECKS!! Boy love.
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!
