personally i love both genres . but yaoi is the best because it's more straightfoward ( and graphic lol).............

as for shounen ai, its really soft but sometimes can also be misleading. for example, you know something is there or is going on but they never really do anything to stop the skeptism !!!!!!

Definitely shounen-ai. I don't like the hardcore stuff....plus -ai tends to be more about the interaction and romance instead of 'BUTTSECKS!!!11"
Rushed relationships suck. If they start sexing before the second chapter, I'll drop the manga in disgust.

Yeah, I'm kind of spilt, personally. I ADORE shounen-ai because it creates a lot more tension and focuses a lot on the feelings and that always gets me going, but they never do any of the juicy stufff. Yaoi, on the other hand, doesn't have that sweet tension most of the time, doesn't take the time to really work up to the smut, and then just kinda throws the smut at you, which is less fun than if they skip around it some before just cramming it in. Mangakas have to know how to balance the feelings and the smut, but hey, there ARE some series that are pretty satisfying, Like Junjou Romantica. Best damn yaoi EVER.

lol! shounen ai is sweet and usually has good plot. Yaoi on the other hand usually just have hardcore in oneshots and 1volume. But if you read yaoi that have more than 1 volume it usually get pass all the sex and concentrate more on the story line.

I completely agree. I was spoiled in having Junjou Romantica be my first yaoi, and now everything else is a bit of a disappointment

Shounen-ai VS yaoi? That's like... Mountain Dew VS Sprite! D: It's hard to choose. o///o; I must say that I usually prefer -ai because it's more romantic. :3 Like this Naruto and Sai pic, for example:
