Church Going Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


Larkin is definitely not above talking about sex inside a church, but he doesn't happen to do it in "Church Going." There's not even so much as a sexy euphemism in this poem. Larkin's concerns here are almost entirely faith-based, except for the odd occasion when he's concerned with the condition of a church's roof. Nothing all that steamy.
