Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this story?
This is a story about a 19-year-old guy watching three girls in bathing suits walk around a grocery store. There is no overt mention of sex, but the story is told in a sexually provocative way, so we have a pretty good idea what's on Sammy's mind.
