Daddy Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG-13

While this poem is at no point explicitly sexual, its speaker marries a man she thinks is just like her father – and both men happen to be compared to vampires. While not explicit, this does seem a little perverse. If this poem doesn't deserve a PG-13 rating for sex, it deserves it for violent imagery.
