    So I dunno if this is 100% the right sub forum but Harem is a genre.. yea? XD

    Random question, but is it a Harem, or a Reverse Harem, if a man has many male lovers/pursuers? I would think Reverse Harem because the people inside the "Harem" are men, but the "owner" is also a man.

    Or would it just be an orgy? Hmm. Serious questions here folks. Totally.

    You fujoshi girl!!

    Now, the problem is.. is what type of role that 'guy' plays: the wife or the husband? I tend to think that it'll be a Harem as there won't be a difference of sexes/genders and that's why I was trying to find out more.

    Hard stuff, this sexual identity that defines us, it isn't limited to what nature gave us.

    Isn't reverse harem for the harem to be guys instead of gals?
    Doesn't matter who the centre is?
    So yeah...... since the harem is comprised of guys it's a reverse harem........


    What an odd question tho....

    Reverse harem, since harem per the definition implies women.

    It is reverse harem, since harem literally means multiple women (in arabic)

    Tricky question, I guess harem if the "owner" is the seme and reverse-harem if he is the uke.
    Now bring on a mixed-gender harem filled with genderbending and animals, now that will be interesting to classify...

    Meh Harem , everything that involves long term polygamy is some kind of Harem to me. Maybe the gender with whcih the men within identified is also important o_O

    Logically, harem just refers to a huge amount of marriage partners to a single person. I wouldn't consider it a reverse harem.

    Harem=Man with multiple lovers
    Reverse Harem=Female With Multiple Lovers
    Harem just means multiple lovers for one person but generally in stories it is as above.

    Either way I still dislike the harem genre
