A General Survey on Yaoi Fans
Posted 3/4/08
Hi everyone. My friend raistlin_moeh is doing a term paper on yaoi fans and we would really appreciate it if y'all could help us out. If you're not a fan or hate yaoi, then this thread is not for you. At any rate, we would like to know:

your age
sex
location
are you working? student? both?
married/single/in a relationship?
how many years you've been a fan,
do you write or draw yaoi-themed stuff,
why did you become a fan or what made you like it,
do you like shounen-ai only or just yaoi or both,
are you ashamed of it/proud of it/don't care if other people know it,
and did it make you more open to real homosexual relationships/against it/didn't affect your opinion to begin with. (you don't have to give your real name).

Mine is like this:
*19
*Female
*Canada
*I’m a student
*I’m dating
*2 and half years
*I draw , but I’m not good at it (for some reason I can only draw girls and animals)
*I became a fan when I watched my first shounen-ai, Gravitation. Then I watched another one then another and so I become addicted to it.
*I like both, but I rather watch hardcore yaoi
*I’m not ashamed of it, I recommend it to all of my friends
*It made me more open to same-sex relationships. Before I would say, “do whatever you want, but don’t do it in front of me,” now however, I’m more like “wait, wait, let me get something and please don’t mind me, I’ll just watch.” *winks*

Thank you so much for helping us out, it means a lot of us!!!
xoxo

*18
*Female
*Canada, too XDDD
*Also a student
*Single
*2 years
*I can do both, but usually, I do fanarts only, I have tried doing doujins and fanfics too, but never get them finished lol
*Surprisingly, Death Note was the manga that first led me to yaoi lol, I was searching for DN fanart, and ended up being exposed to a bunch of yaoi ones =0= and instantaneously "transformed" into a yaoi fan lol
*prefer BL, soft yaoi is fine, hardcore yaoi really isn't my thing....but stick figures yaoi is always awesome!!! XDD
*don't really care if other people know
*draw so many guys these days I don't know if I can draw girls anymore...(now when I draw a girl, ppl think it was a guy.....and sometimes vice versa =A=;;;; really don't know what is going on)

nope mom won't allow me to have a partner yet.
since 12
I do draw yaoi *undercover* people simply think the couple are friends but my friends (my readers) know.
Well let's say 12 is a maturing age.
both.
well in my case, with my friends (really close ones except one) I talked to them about it. But my parents know not! I am trying to hint my dad ...
Last question : depend on the gender, if they are females, give me 10 min to move away. If they are men, I will be don't mind me, continue *secret camera!!!*

Hi, this is a moderator =). Since this is for school, I'll leave this thread open for a day or two so you can collect some information for your paper ^_^. Some other things you might want to check out are:

and another user here Dusterbayala did a paper on Yaoi once, so she might be able to give you some good info! Good luck on your term paper =D! I'm glad we could help out.

I can draw but I don'tndraw yaoi
haha I started with gravitation too! Then I started more and so on
both, it use to mostly be shonen-ai, but now more yaoi
currently ashamed that I watch that. Also my parents found out like 3 days ago...I felt ashamed after that.
I think it made me more open to it, I am totally fine with it now. Yuri relationships still make me a bit uncomfortable though.

Student but work in the summer
Single
Of yaoi? Probably since I hit puberty lol (about 2 years)
Nope, I can't draw boys that well haha.
I'm not really sure. Probably Gravitation. I saw that when I was around 13 and I loved it.
I mostly prefer shonen-ai but yaoi is cool too.
I don't care if other people know.
Yeah, I think it made me more open. I was raised in a really close-minded environment so seeing yaoi kind of changed my point of view on same sex relationships.

♥i'm not sure... ?? i like yaoi, most def^^
♥don't mind if anybody knos! i don't think it's anything to be embarrassed of!^^ besides, it's not me the story is about; i just read it and happen to like it^^
♥u kno...hm... lemme think about this... i hav friends that are homosexual, so it didn't really change my opinion drastically, but yes, it probably did make me more open to it (well, like more accepting) it def. made me like the idea a lot more haha^^ i'm all for a good yaoi or yuri book tho!^^ they really are great stories, huh?^^ and it made me more open to celeb cross-dressers haha^^ -but only if they're cute!! like Bou-kun^^ from AnCafe
