this is quite a pointless thread:
Yaoi- straight girls, gay guys
Yuri- straight guys, lesbian girls

There ya go, basically summarizes the entire thread


So according to your 'theory' I'm lesbian. I learn something new about myself everyday...
I read both. In both genres you can find good plots and bad plots. I'm okay with either yuri or yaoi..


If not lesbian at least have some nonstraight tendencies.
There's nothing wrong with that of course.

Wow! I was sure Yaoi would be the more popular one! I guess there are more Yuri fans on this site than I thought.

Exactly what i was stating bigrazz But I apologize for the harsh phrasing.
In all honesty, if you're a guy and you read yaoi even for "plot" you definitely have some leanings toward homosexuality, same with girls and yuri, no matter how you try to justify it it, you have leanings toward that direction. Besides there is really nothing wrong with being homosexual at all.

From what I remember from various documentaries I watched during a social issues class (keep in mind that this was a few years ago, could be outdated, and that I go to an extremely liberal school), men are more inherently opposed to homosexuality (I believe the reasoning actually had something to do with brain chemistry?).

Anyway, besides the fact that there are simply more guys on this forum than girls (at least I think there are...), there is probably a stronger flat out opposition to yaoi than there is to yuri. Regardless of that, I don't hate yaoi stuff, it's not really my thing, but I don't hate it. Yaoi fangirls can be terrifying though... there's seriously some stuff I don't care to remember *shudders*.

i dont love either in a sense of actually looking it up, but between the two i prefer yuri much more. actually i think i tend to avoid yaoi or even shounen ai

i voted for 'love both' but i really like yaoi more. yuri is good too but only if its really graphic...im a visual person. and even then the sex isnt all that exciting for me. fingers and tongues can only go so far.

yaoi on the other hand. OMG. just the thought of 2 hot men having the hots for one another and then having a hot passionate f*** is such a freaking turn on.

sorry if its explicit but thats the only and best way i can describe it.

I applaud you for being a girl (or woman) who's not afraid to share her pervyness.

I vote for Yuri.
Yuri FTW.
And I saw Yaoi once...
Oh...God. It left a Scar on my Eyes. (No offence to Yaoi lovers. ^_^)
But for Yaoi it has good story line and all but it isn't for me. dead;
So... Yuri ftw.

Mmm... picked both. Unfortunately, yuri can be quite limited... (yes dear, the sex), so I'm more inclined towards futa in that sense...

And I find that most yaoi has exactly the same plot. Well, I'm sure a lot of yaoi/yuri readers aren't interested in a plot.

Saying I'm bi would probally just make me sound like an attention whore. xD

lol you said it anyways though. xD Was that a pun or a contradiction...? >.<

I'm always amazed by the amount of Yaoi that there is. xD At least compared to other genres.

It was me, being an attention whore.


Saying just Yaoi and Yuri is a little restricting and generalising all the manga in it's catagories. There are alwasys ones that stand out.

If the question was shounen ai and shojou ai, I'd answer both again. Same-sex interest/love is really cute. >_<
