Would You Admit To Reading Yaoi?

HEY GUYS, I READ YAOI.

..Of course I can holler this here, or anywhere on the internet anonymously, but no way in hell am I doing it in real life. So this is what happened. I started talking to my friends about watching anime and the conversation went on to me going to cosplay as Asuna from Sword Art Online one day, and it escalated to my friend commenting that the outfit looked like something right out of hentai shit and her daring me to disagree, because “Who knows more about Hentai than me?”

And then the topic became Yaoi. And  not only one person– somehow, quite a couple of friends actually openly admit to reading and enjoying Yaoi and even people who are not really into anime eagerly pop into the conversation. Like whaaaaaaat.

Let’s not mention the fact that firstly, we’re underage to be reading this stuff. Okay I sound like a stupid goody-two-shoes. But when you say stuff like, “oh I read Yaoi and Hentai” in real life, you’re actually admitting that you read porn brazenly. Fine. Now that I think about it, there’s nothing wrong in this day and age anyway. Since i’m pretty sure that EVERY otaku reads at least smut or ecchi manga and even I wouldn’t believe anyone who says they don’t. So maybe my friends know that I do read Yaoi. I indulge in it so much, lol.

And non-anime watchers too! They know all about sex and terms and… stuff. SO IF NOT FROM ANIME, WHERE?! R-real human porn!?!? Is that better or worse?!?! I can’t even say……. Oh my. See how corrupted we teenagers are in this information age? But I don’t think I can ever bring myself to admit it, because even if everyone knows about porn, that doesn’t make it something that you should say out loud. Hanging dirty linen in public ain’t cool. How do I say it, it’s like if we don’t at least try to maintain a facade of innocence and just start actively discussing about Yaoi, it wouldn’t seem right. And it would be aaaaawkward. It’s not that I don’t trust my friends, but this sort of thing isn’t meant to be said out loud, it’s meant to be kept a dirty open secret.

Likewise, you wouldn’t share details of your sex life with your friends right? Best friends maybe, but you wouldn’t want others to have a leverage over you just because you spilled your most intimate and vulnerable secrets.

And of course, this post has an extremely important purpose. I’m here to bring and introduce you to one of the greatest Yaoi manga of all times. Drumroll please. Toshishita no Ryuugi. This is one of the best BL stories i’ve read in my whole life, and every other work by the author is great too! THE ART IS FUCKING AMAZING (pun. sort of…) and i’m glad to say that this series isn’t too graphic. Like the sex scene isn’t so intense, and I like it that way. READ IT

The hottest facepalm ever witnessed in the face of history.

Oh and I found something damn funny in the first few pages of every new volume or chapter. You know the lines they use to hook people to buy the manga or something? They’re so cheesy that I don’t even know what to say!

and another one, “Their love story seems to have ended in a bitter separation devoid of hope.” Ohohoho! CHEESE CHEESE YELLOW CHEESE SO CHEESY! HAHAHA SO I SWEAR YOU’VE GOTTA READ EVERYTHING BY THE AUTHOR. Because of hot guys and hilarious scenes!

Out of all the genres of manga, the art style of Yaoi manga is definitely the best. The characters are so prettily crafted, even more so than shoujo mostly.

CODE GEASS NO PLS

So yeah.. admitting that you read Yaoi is really hard, and I don’t see a need to make it known anyway. Implications can only be detrimental. But go forth, minions, and read all the Yaoi in the world. There’re so many brilliant ones out there.. No one can dislike hot guys in manga. NO ONE I SAY.

Brb burying myself in my exclusive harem of hot dudes.

    Aye! I also read yaoi, yuri (even if i am straight and girl, but who cares), and hentai! TTATT real life boys, y u no being so sexy and hot like anime boys!
    i never once admitted that i read yaoi until last year…there was one boy who fell in love with me while i hate him so much cuz he is so annoying that caused me to yell at him just to make him stop like me. I also said “I READ YAOI MANGA!” to him in front of many people at cafeteria…o.o whoops…many people did not caught that and some people who caught that asked me what is yaoi. I told them to forget it… -_- thank god, my dark secret hasn’t been reveal

      HAHAHAHA that’s such a cute reaction to the guy but I wonder if he understood what you meant! And yes, anime guys are definitely the best. But these type of things, subsets of porn, are quite the taboo to talk about in public right? Even if many people read or watch such things too! Oh well, let’s keep this secret to ourselves for now
