I was 12 and I watched a VERY censored yaoi. Then I was curious, so I tried a manga. And by age 13, I was already a committed yaoi fangirl XD
No judging >;D

I think I was 14 or 15. I was introduced by a friend (girl). My first was Junjou Romantica. *-* The perfect yaoi for everyone to start because it's funny, spicy as wished, but not too much to make people have a heart attack on their first time! xD And it's a really great story. =) Watched it trice, read it twice. ^^

My first yaoi was Shounen Zanzou when I was 12~13 too, but the story was messed up and dark, I got scared and didn't look for more yaoi mangas. Then, 3 years ago, I started with shounen-ai, Seven Days and stuff. The first yaoi I can remember after that was Little Butterfly, it really hooked me up into this genre.

[m]Eroica Yori wa Ai Komete[/m] was my first yaoi. I was nearly 12, I think? The art and plot wasn't my thing. I found out about Hoshi no Yakata after that and got hooked on yaoi ever since. ^^

Paste siggie here. ^^

I'm not sure if I was 12, 13 or 14, and they probably can't be considered real shounen ai, but it was Conde Cain and Princess princess, oh, how I suffered hoping for some kisses... After I realized I was into this kind of thing, I went searching... and here I am, after years, still searching for shounen ai and yaoi. hahaha Oh, the first "successfully" shounen ai/yaoi was Kissing

15 - 16 was when I read my first shounen-ai, I actually behaved myself and only started reading yaoi at 19, well that and because I didn't know what I was missing XD

Wow, everyone so far started out so young. I only wish I knew of the awesomeness called yaoi when I was younger. *Sniff Sniff* ~ My first was 3 years ago and I was 23.

I was about 13! biggrin I decided to watch an innocent enough looking anime and at first didn't know why the heck they were kissing XD I soon found out >:3 I then became a follower in the yaoi fangirl army XD

I am locked inside a land when I sleep. A world that is dark and when it storms it never rains. Heedless of the fears and things I still don't understand, they are and will never be evil, for dreams, even nightmares, are our safe havens.

I'm a late bloomer. I got into anime and manga just about 5 years ago, as an adult way off your chart. laugh Yaoi came a bit later. Most of the anime I knew was through Adult Swim - FMA, Inuyasha, Death Note. I heard that there were pictures of Light x L in, um, interesting situations, went looking for them, and found way more than I bargained for. What really got me started was an AMV of Yami no Matsuei, "Boys and Men". Men (almost) kissing!!! eek After that, I watched the anime, then Gravitation and Loveless. The first yaoi author I read was NITTA Youka, still a favorite. And now it's all yaoi all the time. eyes

Lol, I was only 11 and stumbled upon a yaoi by accident. I was at google images looking for cat eared characters in love, I typed love neko. Which is also the name of a yaoi manga by Mishima Kazuhiko. The image looked interesting so I researched it and found the manga Love Neco
I as only 11 year old girl fell in love with yaoi immediately XD
Then I went to research yaoi more and started watching the anime Junjou Romantica, I read the manga too. Since the first moment I was totally hocked.... biggrin
Now I'm 16 years old and a total fujoshi, yeah I'm really rotten bigrazz

Don't Worry, Be Different biggrin

I read my first yaoi when I was 16. I wasn't even looking for yaoi, it just came in my way. I was looking for more manga by watase yuu cause I absolutely love all her works, and I was really into shoujo by that time. Anyways I saw Sakura-Gari and gave it a try. It didn't really get me into yaoi at the time cause it's a tragedy and it has a really disturbing story line. After a while I watched Gravitation and loved it. That made me get hooked to yaoi anime, i watched all the yaoi anime I could find and when I ran out, I started reading the manga since I wanted more BL stuff.

14- 16
I had first stumbled into the Shounen Ai with my first one being Sukisho, I then later watched
Junjo Romantica and Gravation. So I guess I stumbled into Yaoi around 15 lol. Looking around on the internet is a sure fire way to find yourself either in trouble or luck. I was looking for something that I have no idea now what i was looking for and clicked on something else instead, that being my first Yaoi and Shounen Ai smile

13. Gravitation, the anime. It was love at first sight. Read the manga a couple of years afterwards: hated it. Yuki and Shuichi will always have a very special place in my heart though no matter how many years have gone between us, ahah. I soon discovered yaoi as well -- although I don't remember my first o.o -- and automatically assumed I was all too grown up for shonen-ai lool. On and off, I still enjoy reading some lighter stuff now, it makes me feel a little less of a pervert :3

It's the Art of Time, it's the Art of Life--
Of the player and the craftsman,
Of the writer of songs, of the creator of love,
Of those who will follow, of those who led,
There's no other way in the world ahead ♥

i was about 18/19. browsing through my friend's computer and stumble upon butt sex. i was terribly scared but aroused, and feel like puking. i make fun of her for that for i just feel it very bizarre. then i go abroad and have my own computer, my own room and freaking fast internet connection, i try to find the yaoi i had read before. at first yaoi make me feel queasy, but constant exposure make me feel almost bored by it now.
