Don Juan Steaminess Rating

By George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron

Steaminess Rating

R

Above all other things, Don Juan is about sex. Byron can try to defend himself all he wants, but it's pretty clear that he wrote this thing to shock any audience that was even a little prudish. You could even say that the whole plot of this poem is based on Juan's journeys from one woman to another. So, yeah—this poem earns its R rating in a big way.
