Yaoi is basically gay porn. Shounen ai thought is just like your average romance story. Yuri is lesbian porn. Shoujo ai is just a girlxgirl love story with most likely no sex. Yaoi is sometimes generalized by people to mean both "yaoi" and shounen ai thought, same with yuri.

Now that the question has been answered...

Thank you, that was most useful. I don't think I have watched any anime that precisely fit those categories, so I was not educated on the details.
