Yaoi Infused M/M Romance

Dec 052009
 
So I’m watching the Max and Iago Love Story shows on YouTube (thanks so much to Evama1977 for making them) and I’m thinking to myself, I’ll be damned if this isn’t just like a typical Yaoi story! Iago is the perfect seme – gorgeous, confident and of course, the bad boy. Max is the perfect Uke – smart, sweet and looking for a loving relationship. Also, they both have these terrible pasts, but Iago’s seems like it was worse (hence turning into the bad boy he is). And of course, they’re both pretty boys with lean bodies and long hair!

Like in your typical Yoai, at first they’re at odds with each other and tell anyone who’ll listen how much they hate the other one. Then of course there is the hot kiss followed by lots of angst and you know the rest;) I’m really not trying to spoil it for anyone.

So my question is, what is it about the bad boy seme and the cute little uke that we (I’m talking about women here, but gay men can speak up, too) love so much about this pair? How is it that it seems so universal? This show was made in Spain, I think – please someone help me here, and Yoai started in Japan, so the concept does seem to cross cultural borders. Are we, as women, putting ourselves in the place of the sweet little uke? Which means, all us Yaoi and M/M Romance loving females can’t get enough of the bad boys? I know I prefer them, LOL. Yep, the longer the hair, the more piercings and tattoos, the better. But I digress…

Just someone answer the question – why do you love this pairing?

You can watch it on YouTube here: Max and Iago – Love Story

Well, here it is and damn, am I tired. I worked on this dang thing all day yesterday and today, but it finally resembles something decent (for lack of a better word). So what is this blog all about, you ask? It’s about men loving men, in all of its forms – movies, books, pictures, whatever, with a focus on those things I listed specifically above (um…the Yaoi, M/M Romance, JRock and Anime).

I plan on posting a few times a week with these sorts of topics:

  • Yaoi and M/M Romance author interviews
  • character interviews (“Yaoi Talk”)
  • book, movie, anime, music reviews
  • my take on bizarre things I find on the web (of which I seem to find quite often ;) )
  • Updates on my writing and art
  • contests – yes, you too can win an ebook!

That’s all I have to say for now, so on with a hot Hyde picture!

Maybe tomorrrow I’ll have to post about why it is exactly there are so many pictures of Hyde’s tongue, LOL!
