Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


Let’s just say that Emily and George weren’t raised watching MTV. The closest mention of sex we get is a tiny hint, a little whiff of the idea. At the wedding, Mrs. Webb realizes that she hasn’t told her daughter about the birds and the bees. She decides Emily’s friends have probably told her what goes down after the wedding.
