Yaoi is a fictional media genre with homoerotic relationships between male characters that has its roots in Japan (/jai/; Japanese: [ja.o.i]). Its abbreviation is BL, and another name for it is “the wasei-eigo construction boys’ love” (, beru). [a] Although it appeals to a male audience and could be created by male artists, it is distinct from homoerotic media sold to gay males, known as bara (, lit. Though mostly created by women for other women, it may also be made by males. It includes a wide range of entertainment mediums, such as fan works, comics, anime, drama CDs, novels, video games, television shows, and movies. The name “yaoi” is still more often used in English, despite the fact that some fans and commentators in the West prefer the terms “Boys’ love” and “BL.” In Japan and much of Asia, this kind of media goes by the general labels “boys’ love” and “BL.”
The 1970s saw the debut of the genre in the shjo manga subgenre, sometimes referred to as comics for women. The term “boy love” (shnen-ai), “aestheticism,” and “June” (lit. “dou ne”) were among the many labels given to the new literary genre. Yaoi is a portmanteau of “yama nashi, ochi nashi, imi nashi,” which means “no climax, no goal, no meaning,” and initially originated in the late 1970s and early 1980s in the context of djinshi (, self-published works) culture. When referring to amateur fan works that prioritized sex above storyline and character development, the phrase was used in a mocking way. In the late 1990s, Japanese publications started using the term “boys’ love” as a catch-all for male-to-male romantic media that catered to female customers.
