The Kindle got a little less supple and lithe this month, with Amazon quietly removing a spate of Yaoi titles from the digital shelves.

Yaoi, for the uninitiated, is basically a genre of anime bodice-rippers featuring boys and boys and more boys.

According to Yaoi News, one press has already stated that they’ll have to change their content in order to conform to Amazon’s new terms and conditions banning digital homoerotica.

But don’t worry, appreciators of the female physique: you can still ogle vaginas on your Kindle with such titles as No Holds Barred, Alien Rule, and The Carnal Desires of Helen: The Adventurous Romance Romp of a Dirty Detective.
