Waiting for Godot
by Samuel Beckett
Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this story?
Waiting for Godot has no plot, action, or substance – and no sex. The closest we get is Vladimir’s genital pains from his long-aching prostate, which doesn’t surprise us – suffering is par for the course by now. There’s also the "hanging will give us an erection!" excitement – once again, suffering and pain. And in addition to there being no sex, there are also no women, which means no chance for new life.
