Damn, i'm drawing a blank.
Leave it to me!
Let's start with Senpai/Kohai since they're used in group names.

Senpai: A higher up in a workplace, school or social groups like fanclubs, who has been there longer and has more experience. In other words, mentor or an upperclassman .

Kouhai: (Also written as kōhai occasionally) An opposite of a Senpai, a newcomer or protégé in a workplace, school, or fanclub.

Kabedon: A situation in which a guy slams his hand against the wall, pinning a girl against it. (source)

and to better explain it there is this...

Tsundere: [つんでれ] Normally being cold but at some prompt suddenly becoming lovestruck; hot-cold personality type. (source)

As usual, feel free to correct me.

(literally "wall" and the onomatopoeia of hitting something like a wall.)
Kabedon is when a cool guy hits the wall and leans over his bf/gf.

Lately, kabedon is preformed in a joking manner, much like a bad pick-up line.

Question.
Is it still unnecessary pictures when there a pictures added to it! Heheh. Like the ones below? * giggles* Heheh.

But if you could pick one picture which one would it be?

What great pictures! I guess Kabedon isn't as obscure a word or concept as I thought. If everyone thinks it should be added, who am I to disagree?

Personally my fave pic of the three is with Sebastian *___* but also I think it best shows what the word means (at least as far as I understand.)

Fun Fact: The term yaoi is an acronym. There are two commonly accepted ones. My personal favourite is: Yamete! Atashi no Oshiri Itai! Which translates to 'Stop! My butt hurts!'. Which I think is hilarious.
There's also: YAma nashi, Ochi nashi, Imi nashi. Which translates to 'no climax, no point, no meaning' which I believe is in reference to homosexual love being an 'empty' love, as in no child could be produced from it.

"Stop, my but hurts!" was created as a joke by fans/fujoshi, if I remember correctly.

If I remember correctly, the original, "Yama nashi, ochi nashi, imi nashi" (山なし、落ちなし、意味なし) "No peak (climax), no fall (punch line/denouement), no meaning", actually refers to the absence of a deep narrative/storyline in yaoi. In other words, yaoi is just about the butts and sex.
This opposed to shonen-ai (Boy's Love), which focused more on relationship development and romance, so thus generally has more pronounced plot-lines and story arcs.

Keep in mind though, the terms kind of evolved in transition to English. Some people use Yaoi for non-pornographic work, too. Although at least BL seems to be adopted which helps the distinction.

Do any of you play or know of Bara games? I have maybe two... I'm excited about one coming up called Eldet I think. I guess bara is made by gay men ? The guys are burlier. And fuzzier. And sometimes, orcs.

There's that upcoming orc dating sim, Tusks... unless that was the one you were referring to?

http://orcdatingsim.tumblr.com/

And Super Health Club, which I haven't played but which looks good:

So far as I know, bara is made specifically for a gay male audience (to contrast yaoi, which is made primarily for a female audience).
