The Pit and the Pendulum Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

G, Zero, Nothing, Zip.

Wait, sex? What's sex? As you read "The Pit and the Pendulum," sex and anything remotely sexual will be as far from your mind as could possibly be. You'll be too busy thinking about death, torture, rats, and the sweat beads forming on your forehead.
