Yuri + Yaoi

why is it that ' Yaoi ' is so popularized and not ' Yuri'? ! I've noticed that when searching for yuri manga/animes it's super difficult but its soo easy to find Yaoi anime/manga but why? why is it more popular and more easy to find yaoi than yuri? surely they both should be as popular as each other right ? 

Also ! why is it that more WOMEN wanna watch/read yaoi despite yaoi being aimed towards gay men ? ive genuinely never seen an actual gay man that likes yaoi as the only yaoi enjoyers ive come across are women and i find really odd that this is the case. 

- please respond if you think you might know why because its so frustrating looking for yuri and having barely any results shows up ! thank youu

Sorry to break it to you but it actually turns out that straight women create YAOI for other straight women????? idk why bruh

It also has something to do with Forbidden Love (AKA if they cant procreate its forbidden) that's why a lot of people watch incest porn its forbidden therefore exciting although same gender sex isn't forbidden they cant procreate that's probably why women like it so much

honestly, i think its homophobia, or lesbophobia. more girls should watch yuri. also apparently a lot of trans guys are into yaoi, so go figure. i think ppl should just enjoy more queer foreign media. :>

fujoshis r like 70% of fem anime watchers XP and men prefer irl yuri (or lesbian pron LMAO)
although many regular girl slice of life animes have yuri hidden in them , like for example ichigo mashimaro or lucky star

Straight women love yaoi as much as straight men love lesbian porn.

I guess straight people find it hot to watch 2 people of the opposite gender get on each others or smth

I also wonder on this topic, I have no idea why they really like yaoi and stuff, my cis bi friend likes gay couples cause she thinks they're cute but I have no idea if she sexualizes them or something, very confusing ┐( ̄ヘ ̄;)┌

because most women fetishize gay men and gay relationships in anime

do you have ideas on why this is ?

i think it's a morbid idealisation of gay relationships and the way the sexualise them too
