Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


Although Antigone and her siblings are the product of an incestuous relationship (her father, Oedipus, accidentally married his mother), there is absolutely no sex in Antigone.

But if this were a "Messed-Up Alive Entombment" Rating, we'd give this little tragedy an XXX.
