Sula Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


There is a lot of talk about sex in the novel, and we read about one or two explicit sexual acts. Hannah and Sula have sex with a lot of married men. When Nel finds her husband and Sula in the act, they are on all fours, and we also get a pretty detailed description of Sula having sex with Ajax.
