You'll get it at the end
I found it funny.
Thanx, Jon- glad you know me so well
Maybe it should have read, "you'll get it IN the end"!
Geez, is this what it feels like to be "outed"?
Well, you were already out about your love of yaoi, so you couldn't be "outed" per se.
TripodMillenium: Mme. Zora likes yaoi, huh?
Hehehe.... such could use more fans like her, methinks....
See Jon, there were a few ppl that didn't know! Okay, what's yaoi?
TripodMillenium: Yaoi -- Literally "slash" (/) in Japanese; used as slang to refer to m/m sex in depiction, description, or illustration.
Thank you. I didn't have the balls to ask... I think I have the new wording for my personalized license plates
TripodMillenium: Well, I'm full of random information I've gathered....
When I get bored I usually wander about the internet seeing new things....
Two men getting it on. It's an acronym (or at least it is in kana) for yanma nashi ochi nashi imi nashi, "no climax, no purpose, no meaning". There's a joke that it means Yamete! Oshiri ga i tai! (Stop! My ass hurts! Sometimes also called june (pronounced joo-neh), but the latter implies more plot.
Lesbian porn's called yuri. The term comes from the classic fan pairing of Kei and Yuri from Dirty Pair.
If it's just romance with no sex (or fade-to-black scenes), it's called shonen ai (boy-love) or shodo ai (girl-love).
Oh, and Tripod: In dojinshi teasers, the x or + (depending on degree: x is sex, + is romance) is used instead of a slash
TripodMillenium: Yeah... I know the use of the x and the + ....
You guys are the greatest! I googled it after I posted here last night, so now I understand a bit more. This is actually produced for the pleasure of WOMEN! Apparently, I'm not alone, at least in Japan. How cool of you to introduce me to this, Jon.....I think I'm in luv.....
TripodMillenium: When it was originally made and became popular, it was created by and for girls who couldn't handle watching hentai ("regular" anime porn), which can be violent or demeaning at times.... and is really made mostly just with guys in mind. So, since straight girls couldn't even stand watching straight hentai, they made yaoi -- which has guys and a great deal of the romance hentai so obviously lacks, which fit their needs very well.
I can see why straight girls couldn't watch straight hentai; the tentacle rape snuff might have something to do with that.
Besides which, straight guys like watching lesbians, so it really makes sense . . .
I wanna be in a tentacle flick!
Well, my "ratings" would go through the roof for a start!
I personally wouldn't be in anime or manga. The characters are too two-dimensional.
TripodMillenium: That was a groaner -- even by my standards!
