What level of intimate activity should warrant the ratings from G to NC-17?

I think G should be more or less non-slash (or at the very least completely subtextual). PG has slash but no actual sexual activity. PG-13 is... between PG and R, I guess. R might have sexual activity but isn't extremely graphic. NC-17 is extremely graphic. It seems like common sense to me.. but I suppose the real debate is what is graphic...
Which in my opinion depends on the activity and, to some extent, the fandom. A fandom with a lot of children (like Harry Potter) should be rated harder than a fandom that's more adult (like, we'll say...Askewniverse stuff).
But that's just my opinion, I'm not a big ratings person. If I'm interested in a story I usually don't even glance at the ratings.
