Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


There's no sex in Agamemnon to speak of, aside from a little talk about how much Menelaus missed Helen after she ran off with the Trojan Prince Alexandros (a.k.a. Paris), or when Cassandra tells the Chorus how the god Apollo had the hots for her. Of course, the play is brimming with discussions of utterly disgusting violence, which would definitely give the play an R rating at the very least.
