Steve and Mia: Wife's wind drives him wild

Posted: November 12, 2010

Q: About a month ago, my wife let out a very audible fart while we were having sex. I'm embarrassed to admit this, but it kind of turned me on. She was mortified and refused to continue, then was a bit distant for a few days after. So I told her how I felt, figuring it would give her a good laugh. Instead, she was disgusted. Now she thinks I'm some sort of deviant. Is there anything I can do to help her move along with me?

Mia: Yeah, shut up about it already. Not to be rude, but wifey doesn't get as turned on by flatulence as you do. For your sake, I hope she'll lighten up.

Steve: Thanks for sharing, dude.

Q: I recently began seeing a guy who doesn't drive. He's 28, has his own place and a steady job, so it's not like he's some freeloader. Whenever the two of us go anyplace that requires driving, he always offers to pay for gas and parking. I don't mind driving, but there's a part of me that can't shake that stigma attached to a grown man who doesn't drive. Some of my friends have warned me about dating a nondriver, saying it will eventually become a burden. Are they right?

Steve: I don't know. Let's say you marry a guy who can drive and he gets into an accident and becomes a quadriplegic. Would you consider that a burden? If you're worried about burdens, marriage isn't for you.

Mia: Dang right, it's a problem. Getting a driver's license is a rite of passage, like graduating from high school and moving out of your parents' home. It's selfish for him to be a permanent passenger, since it means he never has to be the designated driver.

But you can't dump a perfectly nice guy just because he can't work a stick shift. Tell him that you really like him, but you don't like having to chauffeur him around.

Steve is a 50-something married man who's been around the block. Mia is a younger, recently married woman with an all-together different attitude. They may not agree, but they have plenty of answers.
