I actually don't like reading yaoi/homosexual erotica much unless there are no pictures.
There are way too many yaois with horrible art and it does nothing but annoy me. I also like writing it.
But I'm not secret about it. I picked "Yes" to the poll but I don't necessarily go "I LOVE MAN ON MAN". I just don't hide that I do.

Not many people know, but not many people ask, so it's one of the gray areas of my life that escape sight. My mom knows of the level of shonen ai, but I think she would be a little shocked if she read my junjou romantica series XD

I can't express my fascination with Yaoi in public though, mostly because I have to keep an appearance of professionalism at the campus at all times. There is room for being cheerful and goofing off a bit, but I doubt anyone would like it if I went on a Yaoi love parade right through the middle of campus XD;;

I prefer shounen ai rather than yaoi actually, coz those have better stories in general. But some yaoi have good stories too. (Basically I'm cool with anything as long as it has a good story and not just about sex.)

I don't really hide those things coz 99% of people I know don't even know stuff like this exist. So when they see a gay looking manga they don't immediately think "oh there's sex in there *judge/criticize*". They just think the cover is gay, anime is gay, and that's about it.

I also keep my fandom on a low (not just about BL, but also about anime in general) because people who arent into it don't need to know about it. It's not that I hide it, coz if people ask I wouldnt deny that I'm an anime fan. I talk about it openly to people who are also fans or who know I like anime, but other than that, I don't ever bring it up. I don't want to be like those fanpeople who talk about anime nonstop. Like in a conversation, every sentence there's a reference to some anime or manga. I mean, I have a life other than that too.

I do bring up supporting gay rights though, but that has not much to do with yaoi and more to do with IRL social issues.

I dont hide it, but I also wouldnt say I necessarily flaunt it either. I just treat it the same as any of my other interests such as video games or other shows. I have some things here and there like pictures and books in my room, but no one in my life pays it any mind.

I'm kinda in the closet about it... once in a while I rather love my privacy and I dunno, maybe I'm sensitive to people judging me; especially since BL fangirls are having a negative connection to anime-with-BOYS.. and think they are all just senseless lunatics (which I try to explain that not all are like that) but I end up getting really pissed at people who don't respect them at all.. and hence it end up with me just keeping it to myself.

Like sometimes I can't help feeling half ashamed but half-glad that I am a BL fan and I feel I'm more open-minded in that sense. EX: No matter what, I would always LOVE Hetalia, (but now it's bashed as that 'immature show with retard fangirls') but I have my reasons + admire Himuruya for making this out of fun/never profit..

I also prefer Shonen-ai (light) romantic stories more than Yaoi, because like some; I'm more attached to an emotional natural relationship than just abusive/one-night slugging/gang-bang stories X_x (Hence i love the chemistry between characters like Nezumi x Shion <3)

I don't hide it. All my friends know about my BL love they call me Yaoi-Dono. XD If you come into my office and the first you'll see is my BexBoy,BexBoy Gold magazines, and mangas on the bookshelves. Even my mom knows about my Bl love and she doesn't say anything. She actually watched Gravitation with me.

What I find amazing is the fact that I always have on me some kind of BL trinket on me and people will approach me and we'll talk BL.

I've never hidden the fact that I read and adore BL. All of my friends know of my obsession. Some of the guys get disgusted a bit but they tolerate it.

The only person I need to hide my collection from is my mother, I think. But she sees all the manga, she just doesn't bother opening them and seeing their contents. *phew*

My friends (well the people I actually take the time for to hang out with or talk to) and family know of my yaoi obsession :) Some of my friends are yaoi lovers and with some people I became friends because they saw me reading yaoi LOL
I'm not ashamed either to read yaoi everywhere; I read it on the train, in the car, in the living room, before class starts (sometimes during it too) ...
Only if the cover is really explicit then I tend to put the cover on my lap when I'm on the train because the weird looks from the other passengers annoy me ^^;

Almost everyone who knows me a bit better also knows about my love for Yaoi.
I don't mind people knowing about it. I don't think a real friend would dislike you because of one's obsessions

Online I flaunt it, irl I hide, but out of practicality and not embarrassment. I'm currently living at home and my parents would not approve, at all, so best not to even go there right now.

I don't usually talk about it unless someone brings it up, but I no longer worry about leaving a string of 18+ mangas throughout my room/reading area, either because I haven't/have forgotten to put them away or because I'm currently reading them, and I don't feel the need to hide them on my bookshelf. That's not to say, however, that I put them out where general guests can see them, so if someone makes a stink about it then they shouldn't have been snooping around my stuff. I do wish I could put up this amazing print that I won in a raffle though, but between a) not having a picture frame big enough, b) not having a good place to put it, and c) how in your face gay/18+ it is I've been pretty hesitant. xD

With softer things, I have no problem flaunting it. My favorites tend to be more like... not-quite-canon pairings, like characters who have strong relationships or playful flirtation in canon, but I like the plots to be more action/adventure or sci-fi or fantasy, where I can enjoy my fanon pairings and imagine how they might get together, rather than a plot about romance. Like-- Eroica has a canon one-sided love and a slow-burn when it comes to developing respect, but the plots are all lighthearted adventure, so I'm not at all embarrassed to have that out on my bookshelf because it's not all about sex. And non-explicit BL I don't think needs to be hidden away either. I've gotten art that I would put up on display proudly, as well-- if it's beautiful, then why not? As long as it's not too explicit for the place you display it and the people who would be seeing it, then art is art whatever the subject. I mean, also if an anime is in that light/more chaste category, I'll watch it with anyone who enjoys anime, and if they're bothered by two boys falling in love even when there's no sex involved, that's their problem and not mine.

But, at one point, a friend gifted me a super explicit yaoi thing and I was just mortified. I had to keep it hidden just... even from myself, honestly, it was too much for my tastes. And I've had doujin that I would flaunt to certain friends, but I wouldn't put them out where my family would see them, just because there's that *one* scene. I can understand people not necessarily being comfortable with things being too sexual and wouldn't want to flaunt something that crossed that line.
