Seriously... when my friend asked me why I watched or read yaoi and shonen-ai I didn't really know for a second there... I think I mainly read it because the characters in there are sooo much better then normal guyxgirl stories... Have u read them? All of them are where girls have huge eyes that cover their face, stupid till the ends of hell, skirts so short that it barely covers and those ANNOYING high pitched voices! Is that all that makes a girl attractive? being stupid, big boobed and in a short skirt? ...'headache.. throb'... sorry... ranting again...

But really, why do we watch them? Or... what got us started?

And if your one of those guys who came in her to slam yaoi and tell us how sick you find it then F*** The Bloody Hell Off please... I said please...

the TITLE says its to do with yaoi... don't be childish and click on it just because u wanna have a go at someone ok? ^^

Maybe because some girls like guys kissing or having gay sex with each other? Thinking it's 'Hot'. =/
I'm not really a 'fan' of yaoi , So I don't really know. =_=

It offers sex and often better romance with interesting characters. What's not to like?
I can't see how gender could have such a significant meaning...

Oh and if anyones interested I know an awesome Yaoi group without too much fan girl squeling.
It's called [ Yaoi Obsession! ] You'll have to enable viewing mature groups in order to see it.

Storylines can be quite good and often not that dull of a love story.

Because the storyline is not shallow and there's this "forbidden love" aura in the story which makes it great... AND BASICALLY IT'S YAOI THAT'S WHY I READ IT.

For guys who like it, they are fags. For girls that like it, they are just jealous and can't stand another chick getting laid.

Um, I started some with KH, because Riku and Sora are totally jealous over each other and Kairi has no point. I don't actually read much yaoi, kinda embarrassing to go shopping for lest I run into someone my family knows... I have a large family and they know everybody, thus, they would all know before I even had time to get home.

But i agree, the forbidden element is part of what makes it so much fun, like Romeo and Juliet, they fall in love with the one person they really shouldn't. Like... like if a girl or guy fell in love with a vampire of the opposite sex. They then have to deal with the fact that okay, this creature is not human, considered a monster, and survives through the most morbid of methods, they are a tainted creature that i should loathe, yet despite your best efforts you fall in love anyway, against all odds. Then you realize this monster is actually just a pitiful creature living a miserable and unhappy existence for all eternity... I'm rambling. Shuttping up.

The point is... complicated relationship+pretty artwork+ a few heated scenes of hushed affection in secret= what's not to love?

Girls are romantics (Guys, sorry, I can't speak for you) We love love, and the bumps in the road along the way are just what make it fun. So you can root and cheer for the characters as they struggle, stumble, fail, and rise again. Isn' t that what makes a good story??

Looks like someone is not comfortable enough with his sexuality to enjoy literature about men hooking up.

One could argue that YAOI stories/animes have more interesting and unique plots--after all, no one likes overrated, over-done, highly repetetive cliches.

There's absolutely no shame in wanting to see something different every once in a while.

How the hell is two gay guys that look like fucking women having sex considered hot
Seriously what the hell is wrong with you chicks
Same with Yuri it's just messed up
I prefer guyxgirl stories, they're actually normal and less disturbing
Damn
