The term “yaoi” (/jai/; Japanese: [ja.o.i]) refers to works of literature that include homoerotic encounters between male protagonists and has its roots in Japan. You may also know it by its other name, “the love of the wasei-eigo construction people” (, bizu rabu); its initials in Japanese are BL (, beru). [a] Though it may appeal to and be created by males, this genre is distinct from the bara (, lit. ‘rose’) that targets gay men. It’s mostly created by women for other women, although guys may make it too. It includes a wide range of media such as manga, anime, drama CDs, novels, video games, television shows, movies, and fan works. “Boys’ love” and “BL” are used by certain Western fans and commentators, although the word “yaoi” is still more common. This kind of media is known as “Boys’ love” or “BL” across much of Asia.
It originally debuted in the 1970s in the shjo manga subgenre, which is also known as comics for women. A variety of other terms were used to describe the new kind of writing, including shnen-ai (literally “boy love”), tanbi (literally “aestheticism”), and June (literally “dou ne”). A combination of “yama nashi,” ” ochi nashi,” and ” imi nashi,” “yaoi” initially originated in the late 1970s and early 1980s in the context of djinshi (, self-published works) culture. It was a derogatory name for fan fiction written by amateurs that ignored storyline and character development in favor of explicit sexual content. Eventually, in the 1990s, “boys’ love” became a catchall term for male-male romantic media in Japanese periodicals aimed to female consumers.
One of the ideas and conceptions linked to yaoi is the bishnen, or androgynous man. Depictions of rape, female characters that are degraded, stories that highlight homosociality while downplaying sociocultural homophobia, and so on are all ideas and themes connected to yaoi as well. One of the hallmarks of yaoi is the practice of pairing characters in relationships according to the roles of seme, which may be translated as “sexual top” or “active pursuer,” and uke, which can be translated as “sexual bottom” or “passive pursued.” Yaoi has established a global footprint since the 1990s.
