Maybe I'm just being a prude - I don't know.
No, not prude, but cautious! I'm 26 and think it's a bit sexual. However, the main character of the book is 17 at the beginning and turns 18 in the next book, so I would guess that the books were written for THAT age group.
I would never let an 11 year old read those books, and hope that my niece hasn't. Then again, my parents let me read Stephen King novels when I was 13, including Thinner.
