Quote from w-zzy
Turn ons:

- Dominant uke. However, I don't like it as they switched rolls (i.e. the seme acts like a uke).
- Versatile. Love it, especially when you least except it.
- Obsessive seme. On a line to almost psychopathic feeling.
- Age gap. Too bad mostly is 20/30 (ten years age gap), I would like to see somethings that's 30/40 or even 20/40.
- Smoking, gun, violence, blood. (haha)

Turn offs:
- Unserious plot and characters. Well, it could be a good read sometimes, but it's not a turn on.
- Somebody getting forced/raped and then realize they like it. I just find it unlogical, force/rape could be nice but it often turns out bad.
- Too much feminine.
- Typical situations. Like someone is sick, and then his friend take cares of him, and then they fall in love and bla bla bla. Sure it's cute but it's SO typical just to get them together.

All I could think of. shy

Turn off:
dominant/bitchy ukes

The "I'm straight except for you" stereotype — I can't imagine the leap it would take to overcome your natural sexual preference. For anyone to do that, to me it means true love. sigh

Kisses, sweet kisses — "The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender." -- Emil Ludwig
I'd rather see a romantic kiss than explicit sex.
No one does these better than MIYAMOTO Kano. Here is one from Make me Happy.
OK, that deserved another. Couple more favorites from other mangaka:
Boku no Koe
Uso to Kiss
Akutai wa Ude no Naka de Futatabi.

Bishounen / Biseinen — It's my nickle, and I want to look at hot men, such as those drawn by YAMANE Ayano or NITTA Youka.

Salarymen / Office romance — Some of my favorites are by FUJIYAMA Hyouta, SUZUKI Tsuta, HIDAKA Shoko, and NAONO Bohra.

Drunk Sex — "In vino veritas", I guess. Usually the gay partner has had his eye on the straight partner, and takes the opportunity to make his move. I like this in josei as well. My favorite drunk sex story is josei, "Sheherazade" in Sheet no Sukima by YOSHIHARA Yuki.

Yakuza tattoos — I thought Kyou, Hana no Gotoshi was just average, but then a yakuza love rival is introduced. He later gets his own story, and when injured, his full-arm tattoo is unexpectedly revealed. *nosebleed*

Suits, and to a lesser extent uniforms — There is something about a man in a suit. (Nitta-sensei excels at them.) In Totally Captivated, there is a moment when Ewon imagines Mookyul in a Hugo Boss Nazi uniform. It's so wrong, but my reaction was the same as Ewon's - *nosebleed*.

Smoking - yeah it's wrong too


Feminine ukes — If I want to read about a guy an a girl, I'll read shoujo - which I do.

Unattractive guys — If I want to see average-looking guys, I'll leave the house - which I don't.

Hardcore stuff — Doesn't do anything for me.

Flaming gays — I've only encountered one, and that was enough, in Groupie, what I consider hands-down to be Nitta-sensei's most unappealing work.

-Smut and explicit sex
-Slutty uke/seme
-Slutty clothing
-Gang bangs
-Ukes with glasses
-Shy/Naive/Dork/Nerd type ukes
-Possessive lover
-Doctor/Hospital scenario
-Tragic/Depressing romance
-Incest (blood related is a plus)
-Tan/dark skin
-Emotional/Sensitive semes
-Priests/Church/Religion theme
-One seme, two ukes
-Teacher student romance

-Salarymen (it gets old)
-Extremely feminine ukes (when it looks like a loli with a dick)
-Stockholm syndrome
-Characters with no personality
-Mustaches (no clue why)

Really hate using those 'uke' and 'seme' terms but saying 'top' or 'bottom' doesn't sound right. Makes me think of clothing...

Age disparity between lovers Yes. hot oyaji and young lover.
Glasses Only on the uke.
Tattoos (On the back or upper arms, please.)
Intelligence Leads that can anticipate and discern the emotions of others, and then manipulate them. Deliciously twisted.
Unrequited love Forever, and never, and never.
Mind break Yes.

Girly boys I want man on man...
Glasses When they're on the seme.
Stupidity Shallow characters and narrowminded characters.
Rape is love No it's not.

Turn Ons:
The Nakamura Shungiku Tsundere Type of Denial- y'know, when her ukes put on an angry or annoyed face as well as shower the semes with every insult possible WHILE BLUSHING whenever the semes make a move. I find it cute LOL.

Military-themed- Mainly because of the Good-looking Privates XD. Also, the military uniforms are a fetish of mine. Preferably if it's set in WWI or WW2.

Reversible couples- like Haru wo Daiteita. I like it when both can take on the "man and woman" role but only if they both LOOK like guys so no effeminate guys on this one.

20yrs old plus characters- I don't like underaged teenaged boys getting it on because their bodies still look childlike. Fully developed men all over each other is really hot for me which is why I got over my Haruka Minami phase.

Manly Bear Type Semes x Ice Queen Type Ukes - like Klaus x Taki from Maiden Rose and Kadokura x Shen Yi from Keep Out (KISARAGI Hirotaka)

Drama- the Doushitemo Furetakunai, The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice and prequel type of heavy drama before the smex. I like it feeling my heart twinge before the reading about the act itself.

Taking Off Glasses- LOL it's weird but I find it really sexy even if it doesn't happen during smex XD

Turn Offs:
Incest-any kind of it >.<

Rape if it happens on a regular basis, not counting Nakamura Shungiku's works mainly because I can't seem to consider it as rape LOL.

Hardcore BDSM

Really Girly Ukes like Ayase from Okane Ga Nai

Incest-any kind of it >.<

High School Romance- I like the University Setting though.

It's fun to see how everybody likes their daily yaoi!
As for me...

- DESPISE feminine characters. Whether they are ukes or semes.
- Semes that are "weaker" than their ukes. Like when they're younger and aren't confident enough or when they look more feminine than the uke (Shou-chan from Akuma wa Hohemu, though I like the manga)
- While on that...Curly hair. I don't know why, I just don't think it suits manga. It's not like I have a problem with it in real life.
- Bodies that could be robots, aren't feminine nor masculine enough. (Sukisyo, though, again, I like the manga)
- Gentle / hesitant / patient / shy semes.
- I agree with almost everybody here. Bara is DISGUSTING.
- Virgin semes x.X
- When the uke looks like a child. Leave it to shota already! (which I hate)
- I HATE cross-dressing. Hate it.
- When the mangaka indicates the whole time someone's gonna end up with X and they end up with Z all of a sudden, for no reason.
- Fluff
- X-some (threesome and more)
- You guys all like reversible roles?! I hate it! =O

(OBS: None of those things I'll mention are rape-style - I'm not particularly into it, but don't have anything against it either.)
- Arrogant / agressive semes, or those who push their ukes against the wall.
- Possessive / sex-machine-type seme (although I don't like sex all the time either)
- Tsundere / cold / silent / reluctant ukes (cliché, I know)
- Cheating. Not the seme / uke f****** another guy, of course, but the making up with their partner, which's usually full of angst!
- S/M. Actually, the "pain" part of it. It's just hot.
- When the uke tries to seduce the seme. In bed? Even better!
- Angry sex, after a discussion or something! *-*
- Ukes that get played by their semes until the very end (Overdose
- Desire. Like, one of the guys loves the other for a very long time and when they finally get to it...ahhh!
- Dub-con
- Ukes that you think will be the seme, then comes a seme and is even MORE semish. If they get "broken" by their partners, even better. (Kichiku Megane)
- Lately I'm into twisted relationships. Like when it's too wrong or involves moral controversy even in the yaoi community.
- Unrequited love.
- Perfect characters (appearance-wise) (self-explanatory since Totally Captivated is my favorite manga)
- Smoking (cigarettes, for fuck's sake, I'm totally against other drugs)

Also, I agree with the everlasting Nanpa's quote.

Quote from khmershinobi
An uke riding the seme nice and hard. ^__^

Ukes who want to be on the top, but in the end aren't fit for the role and end up losing themselves in the pleasure once the seme takes over.

Couldn't agree more! *-*

Quote from MaZzAx
Turn ons:
-Guy who has a phobia of men lol (not very easy to come by)

That was totally Sex Pistols, wasn't it?! XD

When life gives you lemons, you...make a loooot of yaoi! >3

- Carnal/Animalistic sex (just because the seme is greatly turned on by the uke and has to totally dominate them)

- I'm into animal characteritics and animal transformation, its makes the story pretty interesting and different compared to everyday yaois (not just animals, things like nymphs, fairies and mermaids too)

- Pure romantic love with good yaoi scenes, something that makes my own heart skip a beat, just the ability to love their partner not just for the sex but for their heart also.

- Long haired guys, I like it for both uke and seme pairings which I have only heard of for one story *sigh*

-A well written story that shows a realistic expectation of homosexual love and the pains of dealing with everyday life, very much like Haru wo Daite Ita and Miyamoto Kano's works.


- Incest

- Rape or Non-consexual

- Uke's that look like girls with such big eyes and introverted personalities, if I wanted a shoujo I would have read it, Minami Haruka would have to be the biggest culprit for me in taste since she does the style I don't like, to the exception of two stories the rest I couldn't read of her's sadly and also seme's that are over-buffed in physique

High above the tree tops.

forced ORAL sex

I so agree with this. Few things are better than when two dudes are just sitting around and suddenly ones sucking the other's dick, lol
