Little Bee (The Other Hand) Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this story?
Little Bee keeps things pretty clean. OK, sure, there is frank discussion of sex, and of Sarah and Lawrence's extra-marital affair. The rape of Little Bee's sister is also discussed briefly – no way this can be rated G. Nonetheless, there is nothing graphically revealed, and the sex scenes are more awkward and depressing than they are steamy.
