Yaoi is just a counter part of Yuri (girl x girl). If guys can fantasize about uch gestures, then why not girls?
Yaoi stories are composed most of the time of homos, however, I believe that being a "homo" and "gay" are completely different things. ;)
Most of the time, Yaoi stories differ greatly from Hentai, since Hentai only fouses on the "act" (sexual affair ONLY) while most Yaoi stories focuses on the "love" (at a wrong turn, which results in same sex love affair)
It's typical in an Otaku to accept these kinds of genre, hence, I know you'll agree that majority of OTAKUs engages into pornographic materials or so on.
Well, we can call this as our "Freedom of Expression"
What a difference between homo and gay?
Well, this is just for my own opinion since I'm too timid to search for the real answer, and I doubt there is really one haha.
For me, A Homo
is a guy
who prefers a "guy" or a man as his lover or something. That's just it, he prefers a man more than women.
But for a Gay
, he is also a guy, who, most of the time, doesn't accept the fact that he is a guy and that he has a genital organ than that of a guy and substitute himself into thinking that he is a "she" who's looking for a "he", since that is what a "she" is supposed to look for.
So if I summarize it, a HOMO is a male who acts, talks, and accepts himself as a male/guy/man, only that he also prefer same sex over the opposite/women.
Likewise, a GAY is also a male but somehow despises its fact and subdues into thinking that "a girl is supposed to love a guy".
I hope you get what I mean. XD
In my opinion, HOMOs are waaaaay cuter than gays. Actually, most Yaoi titles has homos as the character of the manga. I hate gayish characters, since I find it insulting for a guy to dress as a girl. It really sucks. (Except in Isabella's case, the gay character in Paradise Kiss. He's kinda cute actually)
