Analysis

Porphyria's Lover Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

R

Even though there's no graphic sex in this poem, we have to give it an "R" rating for the fetishism, the extra-marital affair, the murder, and the necrophilia. It's fair to say that those all add up to one thing: not appropriate for children.
