Things are about to get steamy on the big screen this Valentine’s weekend, with Fifty Shades of Grey finally hitting theaters.

However, when it comes to steamy romances, queer female movies has been doing this very well for years.

A Perfect Ending – Rebecca and Paris
From renowned woman’s director, Nicole Conn, this is a powerful film of female sexuality and empowerment.
