The Canterbury Tales: The Second Nun's Tale Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

G

There's no sex in "The Second Nun's Tale." Nada. Zilch. In fact, one big point of the tale is how many of the characters refuse to have sex. It's part of their piety to keep their bodies "unstained," or chaste.
