A Japanese acronym for YAma nashi, Ochi nashi, Imi nashi, which means, roughly, "No peak, no point, no meaning". It is a term used to describe purely sex-focused manga or anime. It is often used incorrectly as a blanket term to cover yaoi, shounen ai, tanbi, shota, and BL, as well as being (again, incorrectly) used as a synonym for gay.
That vendor was selling what was labelled as yaoi, but it was mostly BL.

An anime and manga slang that is used to refer to ''Gay'' or ''boy-to-boy'' relationship. Whilst this is something you wouldn't expect to be so popular... It is. The opposite of Yaoi is Yuri which means ''Lesbian'' or ''girl-to-girl''. Yaoi consists 95% of the time out of graphic fanfics.

Yaoi is love between two guys in anime. Many people think it's just gay porn but its not, though there are some yaois that have more explicit content, but people call them 'Hard Yaoi'. Yaoi has more of a story line than Hard Yaoi and the sex scenes in Yaoi aren't as long and you don't actually see them do it. Yaoi is really about relationships between gay people, not them 'getting it on' -_-

Also most people who watch Yaoi are girls who find gay relationships cute, they are called 'Yaoi Fangirls'. However i have heard of straight guys watching Yaoi too.
A good example of a Yaoi is Junjou Romantica.

A good example of Hard Yaoi is Sensitive Phonograph. (yes, its exactly what it sounds like and it the most explicit yaoi i've ever seen)
