Yaoi is a Japanese term for anime and manga that depict sexual relations between two males. The term is an acronym for "yama nashi, ochi nashi, imi nashi" which translates to, “no climax, no point, no meaning.”

Technically, yaoi is supposed to be like hentai, which is sexual relations between a man and a woman. However, shounen-ai is more of just a relationship between two males, so if you have yaoi and shounen ai together as two genres, you have: sex and a relationship between two males. Get it? Got it? Good:P

What it meansEdit

Yaoi stands for Young Academics On Ice


or that's what teenagers tell their parents! ;D
