Sonny's Blues

by James Baldwin

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

G

There is really no sex or anything sexual in this story. The closest we get is a prostitute who makes a very brief appearance as she watches a street-side revival, but she's just a casual observer in this scene.
