Steam Factor

We include a Steam Factor rating with each of our reviews. The amount of steam coming from your earbuds or car speaker system may not only influence your choice of an audiobook but where you plan on listening! 

We are now rating the level of Steam on a scale of 0 – 10.

0 = nothing in the book is sexual

1 = kisses only

2 – 9 = increasing levels of steam, increasingly graphic descriptions of sex as the number goes higher

10 = erotica

 

Our ratings before November 2017:

You can play it out loud – Maybe a light kiss – maybe all behind doors – or maybe only the knowledge of a romance. (This could include 0 – 3 in new ratings)

 

Glad I had my earbuds in – Warming up – you know they are having sex because the author tells you without a lot of detail.  (This could include 1 – 5 in new ratings)

 

For your burning ears only – Heat factor is high with specific body parts included in the descriptions of the sexual act. (This could include 6 – 10 in new ratings)
