Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG-13

With three prostitutes strutting around, you’d think things would get a little more steamy in this joint, but they never really go there. While Pearl, Margie, and Cora might share a story about some of their illicit activities, sex and romance don’t play a major role in this play. It’s more about booze, loneliness, and the deepening void of existence. You know, fun stuff like that.
