The Little Prince


by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


There’s nothing really naughty or salacious (a fancy-pants way of saying “steamy”) in this book. Not at all. While there is love—between the narrator and the prince, the prince and his flower, and the prince and the fox, for example—there’s zero eroticism. Actually, any sexy thoughts would be totally inappropriate, since there’s only one main adult character (the narrator). The other main characters are a child (the prince), animals, and plants. And none of those should be involved in anything steamy.
