JVM wrote:'Yaoi' isn't necessarily smutty or overtly sexual. The term originated in Japan in reference to works depicting male/male relationships (initially between otherwise heterosexual men) that were explicitly aimed at heterosexual women - even if these depictions were mostly cutesy or platonic. 'Yaoi' means 'Boys' Love', and BL is a shorthand for it in some parts.
A fanfic with a lot of sexuality is called 'smut' or a 'lemon', but there's no special term for m/m fanfic with heavy sex -- they'd just call it a 'yaoi lemon' or 'yaoi smut', or whatever.
Actually, yaoi is smutty/sexual.
What the episode highlights, and what you're thinking of, is actually called "shounen-ai", which literally translates to "boy's love".
Shounen-ai depicts the fluffy, lovey-dovey type stuff the Asian characters allude to in their work. Across the web, it usually gets lumped into the yaoi category. However, among fans yaoi is typed in specifically if you're looking for animated mxm porn.
