Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


Sex is definitely in the mix here, but not overtly. Our primary concerns here are really attraction and flirtation. Yes, there's heavy flirting going on left and right here, but there's nothing out in the open. The idea of bobbed hair is the closest thing we get to sexuality – it seems dangerous to some of the characters because it suggests a new, liberated, and possibly sexually emancipated woman.
