Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this story?
Whether it's Helen recognizing Aphrodite by her youthful cleavage, Thetis dispensing some free relationship advice to her son, or the scene of Hera and Zeus making love on top of Mount Ida, the Iliad certainly has plenty of sexual shenanigans.
But somehow (maybe because it's so dang old) the Iliad isn't shocking. It's just kind of hilarious.
