Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG-13

There's a tongue-in-cheek mention of homosexuality near the beginning of the poem, and then we get the "love cars" in the next stanza. Nothing actually happens, but there are moments of potential steam. Tuck the babies in before you open this poem up.
