Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this story?
Are you kidding? It's about a guy who is stuck in solitary confinement for fifteen years. The only even mildly sexual reference is the lawyer's hint that some of the books he's been reading might have been of an, ahem, adult nature: "in your books I have loved women" (1.14). But yeah, nothing sexy here at all, people.
