Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

This awesome movie where Al Pacino plays the Devil and owns everybody in New York City, but more importantly is taking his gangster roles in Scarface and The Godfather to a greater level of sophistication.
Holy shit! Al Pacino is so cool and bad ass, he was cast as fucking Satan.
