Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG-13

In spite of its aspirations to ribaldry, sex is notable because nobody seems to be having any. Jean's description of himself as an "evil-minded monk" (68) is most probably a reference to masturbation, which is we give this story a PG-13 and not a PG rating.
