 Anime News Network - Yaoi
Yaoi is is the term used to describe manga or anime with strong, graphically portrayed homo-erotic themes involving men.
The word yaoi is actually an acronym of "Yama nashi, Ochi nashi, Imi nashi" (No climax, no point, no meaning), this is because yaoi, much like other forms of pornography, and unlike shounen-ai, often focuses exclusively on the sex, with only the minimal necessary story.
Of late, it has become increasingly popular in North America for shounen-ai titles to be labelled "yaoi," both by fans and distributors.

 Aestheticism Articles | Yaoi etc definitions
The change in terminology was probably due to the negative connotations of the term yaoi and the association with a specific publication of the term June.
Many Westerners use yaoi as an umbrella term to mean any story that includes any male/male relationship and is linked to Japan - commercial manga, anime, games, game-based slash fiction, English fan fiction, fan art, etc. just as BL is used as an umbrella term in Japan.
In Japan the term yaoi is limited to doujinshi and sex scenes, because of its negative connotations.

 Yaoi-Con 2006 | A Celebration of Male Beauty & Passion in Anime & Manga - What is Yaoi?
Yaoi is a concept that pretty much defies understanding by non-fans, particularly in the West.
The word yaoi is derived from the first syllables of each word in the expression, "yama nashi, ochi nashi, imi nashi," which means "no peak, no point, no meaning,” and originally referred to badly drawn self-published fan comics (doujinshi).
Yaoi manga, novels and anime actually cover a wide variety of genres, from comedy to science fiction, from giant robots to high school romance and have been known to have long, complex, volume-spanning plots.

 'Brokeback Mountain' might be ultimate 'chick flick' in Japan, says literature expert
Yaoi males are often depicted as highly idealized "beautiful boys" with vaguely androgynous traits — slender builds, small chins, stylish clothes, big hair.
Like "Brokeback Mountain," which is based on a short story by Annie Proulx, most stories in the yaoi genre are written by women for the enjoyment of other women.
And, if American men find themselves cringing at the thought of watching a gay cowboy movie, they may be totally unprepared for what might well be Japan's next big cultural export, an onslaught of brutally violent and sexually explicit mystery fiction written by Japanese women intent on raising questions about men's often-privileged place in society.
