(NSFW) What is the yuri equivalent of the seme & uke?

Asked by Draconess25 (4432 points ) May 26th, 2010

In yaoi, the dominant male is the seme, & the submissive male is the uke.

What are the terms in yuri?

Are they the same as yaoi?

Or are there any terms?

Femme and Butch. The butch being the more masculine, or rough and ready counterpart, and the femme being the more girly one. The pairing doesn’t always happen like that, though. It’s not entirely set in stone like it is with Yaoi.

Seme (Yaoi) = Tachi (Yuri) Top, or Dominant female
Uke (Yaoi) = Neko (Yuri) Bottom, or Submissive female

YW.
The literal translations are:
Neko = Cat
itachi = Weasle, shortened to Tachi by western fans.
