Samson Agonistes

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


While we know not a whole lot happens in Samson itself, the backstory definitely has some steamy moments. Samson seems rather too preoccupied with women, and it's in the bedroom where he reveals the secret of his strength. (LOL!) While the language isn't exactly sexualized, there are definitely some graphic moments.
