“Boys’ love” is used to refer to male/male homoerotic texts, particularly manga, created by women for women. Originally developed in Japan, boys’ love is now a global phenomenon, but little is known about its Western readership. A 2005 English-language survey of 478 boys’ love readers and a 2006–7 Italian-language survey of 313 boy’s love readers provides detail about readers, what they think of boys’ love, and their activities as consumers and producers. Although the focus and cultural context of this paper is on boys’ love as it is received in the United States, the broader survey results provide a snapshot of boys’ love readers throughout the non-Asian world.
