I had no idea what yaoi was until I thought to watch the anime offered here in alphabetical order: the first one being 07 Ghost.

I'm glad you made this thread. I was wondering the same thing.

Simply because the guys are showing more emotion and generally pay more attention than the stereotypical straight male.

Yaoi/shounen-ai is pretty much all I read now. I've read a couple het series but honestly...they all paled in comparison. Yaoi/shounen-ai pairings tend to be more emotional and have much deeper connections than het pairings - there's usually one guy in the pairing that has trouble looking over the "I like another guy" hurdle, and getting past that makes the relationship all the more sweeter and deeper. Most het couples seem to get together too easily and the relationships seem pretty shallow to me. I just get bored with it.

And, yeah, it tends to be a lot hotter. I once had a male friend explain to me why guys tend to get so crazy over lesbians: "What does man like best in the world? Woman. What's better than one woman? Two women." Apply the same logic for girls liking yaoi and there's the simplest answer you can get.

Same goes to why most boys like yuri, right? To please themselves.

I like it because it is the equivalent of my mom's Harlequin romance books...drama, romance, and sometimes, the get-to-point sex scenes! But mainly drama and sex!

The whole story has the concept of a person not being
able to accept their feeling for another person of the same gender. It is a very detailed story that
goes through a process of suspense which makes it more and more interesting. The
art style is also another major key in why girls like it. I personally love the art its very
soft and detailed.

Aren't EVERY Yaoi like you just described?

I'd get bored of it fast. Not a big fan of Yuri either. I like the dynamics of the man-woman relationship. Guys are the same on many levels, which takes some of the interesting out of it. I don't see how Yaoi or Yuri is cute O__o
I do see the allure of a "forbidden" relationship, but that can be done in straight parings as well. Romeo and Juliet?

I honestly think that Yaoi/Yuri is a fad of some sort. You can't be a true otaku if you don't like pocky. The same thing about girls. You can't be a true fan unless you read/like yaoi.
