Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

R

To justify the R rating, let us quickly reference the following: "… real good horrorshow groodies they were that then exhibited their pink glazzies, O my brothers, while I untrussed and got ready for the plunge" (1.2.23). Alex is getting ready to rape the woman who has that pair of lovely breasts with their pink nipples. This narrative occurs just before Alex takes the "plunge" while Dim holds the woman down. And while the woman's husband watches. What? Horrible, did you say? You ain't seen nothin' yet. Does it get more sexual and violent than this, you ask? Read your book and find out.
