Hills Like White Elephants

Hills Like White Elephants

by Ernest Hemingway

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG 13

The characters had to have had sex at least once or they wouldn’t be talking about pregnancy, abortion, and marriage. Past or current sexual experience, however, doesn't make its way into the story.
