Reading the first few chapters of The Tyrant Falls in Love volume 1, There's basically this rape scene, but when its two guys, why is it so hot?
The story, a spinoff series of Challengers by Hinako Takanaga, is about a man named Tatsumi who hates gay people because his younger brother was seduced and had fallen in love with one, but his best friend Morinaga is gay. Tatsumi is violent and pig headed when it comes to gays, but still spends his time with Morinaga, who has actually loved Tatsumi for five years now. The first volume of their series, The Tyrant Falls in Love, begins with Tatsumi getting distraught that gay marriage has been legalized in LA, where his precious younger brother and lover are living. Morinaga offers to spend the night drinking with Tatsumi to help him forget his worries. But back at Morinaga's place, Tatsumi gets his hands on an alcoholic aphrodisiac that Morinaga had hidden. It seems to have no effect on Tatsumi, but in the middle of the night Tatsumi wakes up aroused. Causing an awkward ruckus trying to get to the restroom, Morinaga finds out Tatsumi's situation and forces himself on him, offering to just relieve him. Since he's finally living out a fantasy he's had for five years, he can't stop himself with just jerking him off, but full on rapes Tatsumi. Morinaga was always kind and extremely tolerant of Tatsumi's hatred towards gays, so seeing him being forceful with the helpless jerk Tatsumi was great. At one point Tatsumi says, "If you go any further, I won't fogive you!" To which Morinaga replies, "Even if I stop here you won't forgive me anyways." Go Morinaga!
I read plenty of erotic yaoi, and a lot of it out there is disappointing. I'm tired of all the cliched yaoi characters, even though these may be cliched characters as well, they're ones I haven't seen as often. I'm so happy Hinako Takanaga has written a story that exites me again. But the series being five volumes long, will it be able to hold my interest?
But anyways, the point is, as I'm reading this, why am I able to enjoy someone being raped when its two men? Is that the appeal of yaoi for girls? If it were a story of Tatsumi being a girl, and Morinaga going after her as she says "no" and "stop" repeatedly, stuggles like mad, and has this horrified look on her face, that would be unbearable. I would think, "that poor girl. how horrifying" and I would hate Morinaga. So why am I rooting for Morinaga? Maybe its also Tatsumi's personality that makes it okay... he's such a closed minded jerk to Morinaga, that I feel Morinaga deserves to take this opportunity, if anything, just to show Tatsumi "this serves you right you asshole!" hm... something to think about. Maybe thats why girls like yaoi? Its not as offensive or scary to see a man raped? We see men fall into the position of women and we enjoy it. haha, god, how morbid. Maybe thats not why girls enjoy yaoi, just me. But I'm not a man hater! hahaha.
