The question it the topic title.

If I had to pick from my experience, I say Yaoi. The male characters are given chances to be confident or couragous, whereas the female characters sounds so two dimensional characters who are weak-willed.
In my experience I watched Saint Beast and some or few of an anime about a girl who attacted a wide range which includes a crossdressing male model.

Also, I am a guy and I am not gay.

I would say Yaoi too I suppose. Considering how a bunch of girls watch it.....and not a ton of guys watch Yuri....girls would watch more Yaoi and Yuri then guys I bet

I suspect Yuri. I think you will find more girls willing to watch yuri than guys willing to watch yaoi.

It could be Yuri because Yaoi's fan base is a lot o girl, but there are guys! And the Yuri might still be niche because there doesn't seem to be a lot in Borders but there is much more Yaoi there so maybe if Yuri was broader then there would be more in books stores. But maybe its just that there are less Yuri fans willing to buy Yuri manga.

That's just my opinion, I am not trying to offend any one

Depends.

Hardcore Yaoi probably won't find a very wide audience (barring a group of perverted fangirls), but a hint of Yaoi does wonders to just about any anime. And I say this from a straight guy's perpective.

Yuri on the other hand, will probably find more interest in the form of hentai...amongst the more liberal (so I don't offend anyone) of my own gender. Don't think many people will be interested in "softcore" Yuri...

Yuri. You know very well that yuri is more appealing to both gender than yaoi.
