No preference, though from what I have seen, straight romance tends to be better-written, if only because it's a lot more common than the alternatives. I think, generally, yaoi and yuri tend to exploit certain tropes in order to appeal to their respective target demographics, which kind of dilutes the romantic core, in my eyes. The same can be said of harems. I like love stories, and I'm not picky about the sexuality of those involved, but I don't really have any interest in the subcultural constructs that come from making yaoi and yuri genres in their own right.

Basically, I like yaoi or yuri romances if they're more 'romance' than 'yaoi/yuri'.

Also, as a straight male, explicit yaoi is obviously not my cup of tea.

I really don't like yuri, perhaps because I'm a girl. I guess that isn't a fair comment because I haven't watched an anime completely about yuri but I just don't like the thought.

I like abit of yaoi, I'm not a crazed yaoi fangirl but I don't mind it, it's quite cute to be honest.

Then I have my straight romance anime which always manage to make me smile!

I read yuri manga almost exclusively

Straight is okay, but the male protagonist, at least in the things I've watched / read is usually boring as hell

Yaoi is just...

My two hands down favorite romance types are
- Yuri / Shoujo-Ai
+ Cross Heart, Octave, Strawberry Panic!, and Ameiro Kouchakan Kandan are a few favorite Yuri
- Step / Adopted Sibling (no biological relation)
+ Not many of these but Kiken Junai DNA and Gift - Eternal Rainbow are favorites. Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka was OK.

I like straight and yaoi. Not really interested in yuri. I guess I lean more towards guys.
