Steaminess Rating


Even though we have the firm impression that Lippo likes his ladies (the Prior, too, for that matter), Browning pretty much leaves it at that. We get a few tantalizing details with the "sportive ladies" with their "doors ajar" (6), one reference to a woman's breasts (195), and an implied romp between Lippo and a woman upon "kirtles" (380), but other than that, things are kept on the down low.
