The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber
by Ernest Hemingway
Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this story?
PG-13 for adult themes
So there is no "on-screen" sexuality in the story, but it's pretty clear that Margot sneaks off to Wilson's tent and sleeps with him. Really the sex isn't about sex at all. It's about power and punishment. Having sex with other men is Margot's way of humiliating Macomber. Not very steamy, is it?
