They're missing every good name for a gay samurai manga that I could possibly think of.

"Whip it out"
"Penetrated"
"...Or are you just happy to see me?"
"Sword-Polishin'"
"Things That Need To Be Kept Lubricated"
"I Run Bent-Over For A Reason"
"Gay Men Always Wear Sandals"
...and for all you Kenshin fans out there...
"Sharp on the Wrong Side"

Twisted Evil

Okay, what's it with Japanese and red-haired samurai? Was Kenshin this popular, or is there something else behind it?

lol, those are great. I would seriously vote for one of them if they were an option. Although if I did vote, I wouldn't hope to get the prize, me being a guy, it would just be way too embarrassing.

Interesting contest, but two out of the three options sounded as lame and corny as every other altered yaoi manga title ("Passion", "Desire", etc). I just picked the one with the original title still in it -- gives the manga a lot more character than just being named one of the billion variations of "Something Passionate" or other corny, sleazy titles tacked onto most adult anime.
