This is actually a good topic.

I like all three (yaoi, yuri, and het)- it's just that I have to have a realistic "feel" for my couples. Yeah, I'm not much of a romantic.

Yaoi outside of gay comics/geikomi doesn't seem to have the vibe I'm looking for most of the time. Women seem to be easier to write and envision in more emotionally realistic situations for some reason...and that is why, despite my sexual orientation, I prefer most yuri to most yaoi. (And if I do enjoy yaoi, it's probably going to be (good!) fanwork based off of a shounen series rather than an actual BL title.)

(I honestly believe that a lot of yaoi authors would be better yuri authors, because their female characters in their yaoi are much better-written than the male ones.)

Yuri ish not as interesting...especially coming from my perspective (fag perspective) :DD


Speak for yourself, my friend. Not all gay men have the same opinions.

But then again, I got into yuri because most of my female friends are lesbians and yuri fangirls...LOL

Also, as to which is more accepted:

I think yuri, at least in the West. Guys are supposed to have a healthy sexual appetite and that means going berserk over lesbians.

Women aren't expected to have a sex drive at all- forget about a sex drive that cranks into gear when two guys are doing it.

In Japan? I think yaoi is more accepted- provided it was written and drawn by girls. Yuri is starting to catch up though- and its main Japanese audience is also girls. Guys in Japan tend to go for het.

Both yuri and yaoi are great in my opinion, however I find I'm more partial to yuri. <3
It seems that yaoi has a lot of hate for some obscure reason, and yuri is more accepted. To me, they're pretty much the same thing if you think about it in a rational way, but meh, to each his own.

yaoi i love yaoi but i dont reccommend it to any one who dont wanna see sex scenes....idk if they would show full out sex scenes on the animes but i know they do on the manga ( i think they only show a gesture of sex on the anime)

shounen ai would b best if you dont wanna see sex secenes.... i kinda think shounen ai leaves to much unsaid.....
