That’s right, there will be a yaoi category!

I was wondering whether I should, at first. Especially worried that people I know will stumble on this blog and say, “OMG! She reads yaoi!”

The common misconception people have about yaoi is that it’s gay porn. Yeah, admittedly some of the yaoi out there is nothing but gay porn. However, yaoi is orientated towards women and are mostly written by women. This is a concept I found difficult to believe in my pre-yaoi, shonen-ai days. Why would women want to read about gay relationships?

I spoke about this briefly in my post, Boys’ Love, anyone?, but basically it’s the idealised romantic notion of men, and women just like bishies … getting it on. cough. I really don’t understand myself, seriously. 😛

So, this category will just host my reviews on the yaoi out there – only what I consider worth mentioning, that is.

I’m not sure whether I should password protect these posts. Let’s see, let’s see …

    Here’s my odd theory on why women like yaoi.

    Women like man on man action because it satisfies their homoerotic desires. How? Most women like yaoi that features a feminine man and a masculine man. Female viewers tend to relate to (see themselves in) the feminine man, and they’re attracted to the masculine man.

    Basically, yaoi gives woman a chance to be a man, and have an intimate relationship with another man. Weird, huh?
