Ulysses

Ulysses

by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

There is nothing sexual about this poem; Ulysses only mentions his wife once, and he practically complains about her age. Ulysses has other things to worry about besides sex, like sailing and exploring new places.
