The Murders in the Rue Morgue

The Murders in the Rue Morgue

by Edgar Allan Poe

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

G

This has a G rating for sex – but definitely an R for violence. There isn't much open sexuality, but there's a lot of brutal violence: the whole description of the bloody chamber is definitely not one that you want to show to your kid brother or sister.
