Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG

Unless you count Clitandre's "vast German breeches" (2.1.40), there isn't much steaminess up in here. No sex. No kissing. No hugging. Not even a date, unless being in your girlfriend's room with four other guys counts as a date. We're only giving it a PG rating because there are a few curse words and we're not sure toddlers should be watching dramas about rampant infidelity.

Then again, those SpongeBob episodes can be pretty risqué.
