Fightin' and lovin' boys

This week I cover terminology familiar to fans of boys love and yaoi. However many of these terms are also familiar to practitioners of Japanese martial arts.

It seems that terms from martial arts have been adapted to fan terminology in most interesting ways.

The new entries are:

kyō-seme 強攻め

sasoi (inviting posture or stratagem) 誘

seme せめ, 攻め

uke (receiver, blocking, bottom) 受け

By the way there will not be a new entry in the next two weekends, I'll be in Tokyo so my next post will be around the 22nd or 23rd.
