How did you get into Yaoi?

Recommended Posts

AlphaZero

I first started to get into Yaoi when I started getting bored of Boy X Girl. Although I still read and watch Boy X Girl now, I wanted to try something new. When I tried it the first time when I was younger it was an anime called Loveless, then I got into Gravitation and then it became hardcore yaoi right after that. I do like soft core and all that, I basically like all types of Yaoi. :hamtaro-005 (23): I did try it before that time though to see what it was about. (ah, so young, 10 of 11 years old ) And my reaction was to quickly press the red X because I didn't know why the hell there were two guys doing each other. My bad.

At the time I just started reading manga's and watching anime's and I came across the terms "uke and seme", I searched for the meaning and a manga (unfortunately I can't remember the name) popped up. I read it and was like "WTF!!!!!??? Ewwwwww" but I kept on reading till i changed my tune then I was like "Damn that's HOT!!!" LOL and from then on I fell in love with it.

I was reading fanfiction and I clicked on the author's favourite list. I was browsing through it and suddenly I saw a oneshot with the pairing Draco/Harry. I was curious, and I didn't understand how anyone could pair up those two and I read it.

I hadn't realized it was rated M for a good reason until I had read the whole story. After that I couldn't get enough of that pairing, looked up more stories of it and slowly I created yaoi pairings in other fandoms (like Death note, Naruto, Shaman King, Pokemon, House m.d.)

After that I discovered yaoi manga and from then on I was hooked :3

 

I don't regret it at all XD

Same here. I started with fanfictions XD. Well actually... video games. [Final Fantasy VIII- SxS]

I was always into same sex couples... so if I see two hot guys in video games, I'm like I want them to be together, kekeke... then I searched online if anyone thought the same XD.

Very much by chance, I was on a gay site, looking a gay porn when one of the links led to House of More Cock. I know its not yaoi but an American gay animated porn, but I found it 1. Very, very funny and 2. oddly a turn on, so I started looking for more of it, and came across yaoi.

Actually, I'm not really sure myself. Probably from searching for a smut manga.

it started from watching KHR, i remember liking the female characters when suddenly as the story go on i start feeling attracted to the male ones, and then i started pairing them and in a few days, a whole new fandom was opened to me and here i am, a proud yaoifanboy.

I started out on wattpad, reading normal girl x boy stories, but then at some point I began to find them boring and predictable, and then I began to read boy x boy and slash and all that stuff :) I became fascinated with what some might call emos and punkers and all that :) Then in one of the stories, a guy is introduced by his sister to Junjou Romantica, and then I decided to check that out and see what it was o^.^o/ at first my reaction was VERY shy (lol) and I almost only read shounen ai and light yaoi, (I did come upon some hard yaoi, and was totally disgusted at first.. the fun thing is that, now when I reread those hardcore yaoi, I enjoy them! Fufufu how the mind changes after getting used to it ^.^) so yeah.. that's how I ended up here :)

It was a gradual thing I guess. The first "contact" I had with a boyxboy thing was while watching Sakura Card Captor, I couldn't quite understand the thing that Sakura's friend (I forgot the name, I wasn't a huge fan of the anime) had for Yukito (was it?), I thought it was admiration or something, and it got me curious. Some time after, I was getting kinda bored with shoujo so I found myself more attracted to this suspicious thingies hinted here and there in some of them. I think there was something else in between but I can't remember what was it right now, and then I found myself checking out something else from Clamp, to see what was it about and if it was what I thought it was. So I watched Tokyo Babylon. From then, I started reading some yaoi stuff and I almost scarred myself for life because I was actually looking for shonen ai, but didn't know the difference back then. When I found out, I was pretty much over the initial shock, but kept reading soft stuff and shonen ai mainly. Then I started to venture a little more and I kept watchig and reading, from things that had barely any hint to anything homosexual to hard yaoi or incestuous affairs or psycopaths and mafia bosses or crazy sick characters, or bloody games and... Yeah, I don't read absolutely anything, but what I read changes with my mood.

My Sisters knew i was gay and always have so they brought me out of the closet about 1-2 months ago and then i started watching Shonen Ai and i absolutely loved all those series and then some Yaoi and i have been hooked ever since. it's movies like Junjou Pure Heart that makes me proud of being gay.

I was bored with shoujo mangas so I tried different genre. I tried yuri but I hated it for no reason and then I watched gravitation. Since then I became interested in yaoi and shounen ai.

when watching anime, sometimes i get attached to male characters and i fantasize an alternate story/scenario where they can be together. but my discovery of yaoi came just almost a year ago. There was a rumored gay couple at our class. My groupmates are gossiping about them.(who cares if they're together, the relationship actually caused an improvement/positive maturity on them ). Some of their friends are manga readers and sometimes when they talk about the two, one of them would comment "yaoi! yaoi!"..one time i ask what that means..they said it was romance between men...after that, i found a new genre to read... and im super happy about it. :5yoyo34:

When I came out of the closet, my sister was supportive and was there for me. Then she was all weird and said, "You know, you need to experiment more and watch more porn to find out what you like." Yeah, my sister is weird. I've never watched porn up to this point, so I didn't really know what to look for per se. I got home from work one night and got bored playing the nes, so I'm like "Why not?" I type in gay pornography and one of the first results I saw was Sensitive Pornography. I think to myself "I'm a sensitive guy, I'll give it a go." I'm like, "I like it, let's find more." Next, I found Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi by chance and that's how I started watching and reading yaoi.

Traveling around the weird part of YouTube after a breakup (with a girl)I see junjou romantica, Thinking its a straight anime i click. 5 minutes later "...Did he just kiss that dude's brother ... Then look at the dude like bby you wanna join in?" I thought it was funny, I never minded different types of relations in anime. But junjou.. Didn't take too long till things got a little beyonnd my expectations. Reaction in the first 5mins "╰( ̄▽ ̄)╭ haha thats kinda crazy~" next episode(s) "Σ( ° △ °|||)︴ did that bish stick his finger.." 1 second later.. "( ||\\\\ ) why am I feeling this way about this poor boy's sexual harassment... " After episode "....Feelin kinda gay... o///o ....next episode.. *click*"

OHOHOHO, Wattpad huh? At first I was only into BL when it was anime and manga. At that time I wasn't comfortable with real life BL such as Wattpad even though it was just stories people make. I had tried it and I was scared and uncomfortable for some weird reason. Then a month or a few weeks later, I tried it again. I loved it. I was like, "Damn, I was stupid. This is hot!". I love imagining the scenes. EHEHEHE.

I'm so much like you in my first experiences with yaoi. :D

For some weird reason though, for manga, it went from hardcore yaoi, to shonen ai, to light yaoi, then to slashable (haha, where I just randomly ship guys from random animes and manga, it depends on the type of anime and manga though.) Isn't this supposed to be the other way around? LOL.
