Recent Book Suggestions: By Cunning & Craft by Peter Selgin, Letters to a Young Novelist by Mario Vargas Llosa
My Creed: In my writing I feel compelled to get it just right, down to (for instance) the choice between a long dash and a comma to divide two parts of a sentence, or between powdery and pale as modifiers for a blue sky. All such small details matter because they form the substance called a continuous fictional dream. In writing fiction you weave dreams for your reader, and where either language or content falters, the fabric is rent and readers slip through. Result: disappointment, dismay, or, worse, readers cursing you for destroying the world they had so happily inhabited. - taken from the book By Cunning & Craft by Peter Selgin.
All good writing is swimming underwater and holding your breath. - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Did you know?... Male bats have the highest rate of homosexuality of any mammal. (I'm assuming that's even higher than humans, considering that we are mammals. Dang, that's a LOT of gay bats! I'm loving it! I'd like to know next time I see two gay bats in action... but that's just me.)
Random fact (strange but true): Female gorillas have been known to commit bi-sexual acts in an attempt to stimulate alpha males into breeding.
Another random sex fact: Urolagnia is the name for golden showers, which is just a fancy name for people pissing on each other. Tell me, do you enjoy being peed on?
I once read on one of those embarrassing moments page at the back of magazines in which a girl was telling about how her boyfriend at the time was in the shower with her and he asked what she thought to be "do you like me?" but had apparently misheard him, for, when she exclaimed "of course!" thinking, I wouldn't be in the shower with you otherwise, he proceeded to pee on her! How gross is that!!
Yet another completely random freaky sex fact: Semen contains water, protein & fructose. It also gives a shot of calcium & potassium. So giving head IS good for you! Way to go guys! ;]
xD (Express yourself.)
For the convenience and furthered understanding and any visitors I may have to my profile I have provided a list of terms defined. I realize that many of you who are reading my material are probably well aware of what you are getting yourselves into ;] but there is always room for more fans in this pretty little subculture!
BL - an acronym for Boys' Love, this term is a simple as it appears, it is defined as a genre which depicts love between boys. This was the original term but due to burgeoning popularity of the subculture this term has lost its prevalence to the globally recognized Japanese term yaoi, though BL is still the most commonly known term.
Yaoi - has become an umbrella term in the West for female-oriented media depicting male-male relationships. Yaoi is actually an acronym for the Japanese phrase Yama nashi ochi nashi imi nashi which translates to mean "no climax, no point, no meaning" and was originally used as a "euphemism for the content" and refers to how yaoi as opposed to the "difficult to understand" shounen-ai, focuses on "the yummy parts". In fact, the terms shounen-ai and yaoi are often used by western fans to differentiate between the content of the genre. In this case, yaoi is used to describe titles that contain largely sex scenes and other sexually explicit themes whereas shounen-ai is used to describe titles that focus more on the romance and do not include explicit sexual content, although they may include implicit sexual content themes.
Yuri - is a wider blanket term than yaoi, because it refers to media with lesbian relationships, regardless of the target audience.
Dojinshi - typically this term can be used to describe stories which feature male-male pairings transformed into a sexual nature from non-romantic manga, anime and other forms of media, thusly it would be more commonly found on the sister site, Fan Fiction.
MaleXMale - the standard formula where same-sex relationships (especially of a sexual nature) are concerned. Ordinarily where same-sex relationships are depicted the name of the seme will come first then the multiplying sign and then the uke. May also be written as male-male or male/male. Where fan fiction is concerned, I have noticed that authors tend to use an initial formula. AABB where the seme would be listed first and then the uke. For example, HPDM would be Harry Potter & Draco Malfoy with Harry as the pitcher and Draco as the catcher.
Slash - a genre in fan fiction focusing on the depiction of romantic or sexual relationships between fictional characters of the same sex. The characters are usually not engaged in such relationships in their respective fictional worlds.
Lemon - shortened from Cream Lemon, this term refers to all sexually-oriented fanwork, or work that depicts sexual acts, in particular fan-fiction, though it can be used for original works that can be uploaded to Fictionpress as well.
Femslash - organized into the same genre as slash, stories of this nature focus on the depiction of romantic or sexual relationships between female fictional characters of the same sex. Again, the characters are usually not engaged in such relationships in their respective fictional worlds.
Shounen-ai -(also written as shonen-ai with the nice little pronunciation indicator above the 'o' signifying a long vowel) is a form of media depicting homosexual attractions and relationships which was originally connoted ephebophilia or pederasty and is often described as idealistic, pedantic and difficult to understand. To get a good idea of this genre, consider historical greats such as Oscar Wilde and Greek philosophers such as Plato and Socrates.
Shotacon - (may also be referred to as shota) describes an attraction to young boys or an individual with such an attraction, and features media in which pre-pubescent or pubescent male characters are depicted in a suggestive or erotic manner. It can also apply to post-pubescent (adolescent or adult males) characters with youthful neotenic features that would make them appear younger than they are. For a good example of neotenic features, consider Honey in Ouran High School Host Club.
Lolicon - the female version of shotacon.
Muscley-chubby BL - translated from the term 'gachi muchi' in Japanese, this subculture offers more masculine body types for the character(s) in boys' love stories. These stories are more frequently written by gay or bisexual males although still primarily marketed to female audiences it is thought to have a large crossover of gay male audiences.
ML - in addition to BL there is also ML which is an acronym for Mens' Love (love between men) also known as Gei comi in Japanese and Bara in English, this niche genre is catered to a gay male audience rather than a female audience and is primarily made by homosexual and bisexual authors and artists.
Ephebophilia - The sexual preference of adults for mid to late adolescents, generally, for females aged 14-16 and males aged 14-19. Make note that this is the preference for mid to late adolescent sexual partners not just the mere presence of some level of sexual attraction.
Pederasty - an intimate (and sometimes erotic) relationship between a man and an adolescent boy outside his immediate family. This term is derived from a Greek word meaning "love of children" or "love of boys" which is derived from a compound meaning "child, boy" and "lover".
Seme - the "pitcher", attacker, instigator, dominant, top, or otherwise known as the penetrating or ‘insertive’ partner during anal sex. Frequently this position is stereo-typified to depict a character who is more masculine, protective, restrained, more physically powerful, taller, older, etc. This is not a must; it is open to author interpretation!
Uke - the "catcher", receiver, submissive, bottom, or otherwise known as the receptive partner during anal sex. Contrastingly, this position is stereo-typified to depict a character who has a blending of both masculine and feminine qualities but frequently described as "girly" or effeminate, having a softer, androgynous feminine features with big eyes and a smaller build or body, and often physically weaker. Again, this is not a necessity; I encourage you to step out of the box!
Riba - a contraction of the English word "reversible", this term refers to a same-sex couple that the fans think it is still plausible for the seme and the uke being capable or comfortable with switching roles/positions. Meaning they are not locked into always being the top or always being the bottom.
Lime - A fan-fiction or chapter of a fan-fiction in which characters graphically fool around but do not actually have sex. This term can also be used with original works such that can be uploaded to Fictionpress.
