Electra

Electra

by Sophocles

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG

There's no time for sex, what with all the vengeance and killing. Though part of Electra's disgust with her mother does have to do with the fact the Queen is sleeping with Agamemnon's co-murderer. (Although this does seem to be less important than the fact that Clytemnestra is herself the other co-murderer.)
