Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

There isn't really anything sexual about this poem. There is only one speaker, and he doesn't encounter anybody in the course of the poem. While the sea does "bare her bosom" (5) to the moon, it resembles a gesture of nursing more than flirtation.
