Sonnet 116 Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


For a love poem, Sonnet 116 is awfully chaste. It deals more with the emotional side of the L-word, rather than its physical…er, consequences. The poet defines an idealized "marriage of two minds" (2), a relationship that may or may not be physical.
