Notes from the Underground

by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG-13

While there is some sex with a prostitute, Dostoevsky keeps things pretty implicit or unsaid. He pulls a chapter break any time sex comes around. Also, the sex in notes is followed with morality lectures on how depraved the intercourse was.
