Q: After many, many years of being together, my husband and I not only love each other, we are still in love with each other. We are openly affectionate with each other and enjoy being together. This often draws questions from my women friends on how we manage it. It's not hard, really. We are open and honest in every aspect of our lives. Especially our sex lives. We communicate everything and have reached a level of intimacy that allows us to continuously grow together, trying new things.

Q: Why is it that women can get away with texting naked selfies of themselves, but when a man does the exact same thing, he's some sort of freak or something? Please help me understand why this is. Mia: Women and men are just different. We want to gaze into your eyes - not see your naked junk pop up in a random text message. No matter how big it is or how eager you are to show it off, keep it in your pants until you're with someone who wants a picture of it. Steve: Which is more likely to be another guy than a woman.

Q:I HAVE A TALL, handsome, extroverted husband who's the life of every party. He works in a place where he's surrounded by beautiful, successful women. He has lunch with them, goes out for drinks after work with them and even talks to them on the phone at night. We've talked about it more times than I care to say. He says they're just friends, and that he loves me and our two kids. I know I'm being paranoid, but I can't help myself. We went to a reception the other night, and I just know I had a scared look on my face whenever any of his female work buddies came around.

Q: WE WERE in a car fooling around on Valentine's Day and after I shared an X-rated fantasy with my husband, he confided in me that he had a cuckolding fetish. I asked him to explain and he did. After being shocked, the more I thought about it, the more I started to think it's kind of a hot idea. I mean, what woman wouldn't want a love slave? I haven't moved forward with it because I'm afraid of how our relationship might change if we brought another person into our bedroom. He could get really jealous, but, then again, we could use some spicing up. Anyway, he says the decision is mine.

Q: I'm in my early 20s and working at my first job. When I started, I was told numerous times by friends and others to avoid interoffice dating. But of course, on my first day there, I noticed a beautiful brunette girl. We ended up dating, and she admitted that she had recently dated another guy in the office, that things had ended badly and that he had certain . . . ahem . . . sensitive pictures of her. He wouldn't leave her alone, so she was forced to go to HR, and he was moved to a separate part of the company.

What's trendy to nibble when you're tired of tapas? At Mia's, the new restaurant at the Warwick Hotel, they're touting novel noshes they call mezzano. The Italian word, which translates as "middle," originated with early spice traders as a term to describe the cuisines of their Middle Eastern and Mediterranean neighbors. That tells you the background of the foods displayed on Mia's 25-foot-long bar. If the bar isn't crowded - and it wasn't at the time of my late lunch - you can walk up and down casing the goodies that are lined up there in big, colorful bowls.

T HE HOLIDAYS pose a dilemma for lovers, regardless of whether your romance is new or long-standing. What is an appropriate gift? Will my partner misunderstand my intentions? Is it too early in our relationship to buy a sexy gift? We asked romance columnists Steve and Mia to help guide you through.   Steve: So, Mia, what's the sexiest holiday gift you ever received? Mia: Lingerie. But it was from a boyfriend that I wasn't into. It weirded me out. How about you?

Q: My significant other and I have been seeing each other for 12 years. After six years of great sex, she started pulling back. She referred to my petting as grabbing. She never really liked to kiss. Then she stopped having intercourse. I consider myself a touchy-feely man, and I miss the closeness. I've stayed with her hoping that she would change, but she hasn't. I am 73 years old. She is 64, attractive and physically active and takes care of her health. She refuses to seek counseling.

Q: I'm a 40-year-old married man and, not to boast, I'm a fairly good husband. I do all the cooking and food-shopping, have a full-time career, help with the laundry, all the outside jobs, take the kids to school, etc. I shower my wife with affection, waking her up in the morning with backrubs, telling her regularly how hot she looks, spontaneously giving her hugs and kisses in the kitchen . . . and yet, none of that is ever initiated by her.

Q: I've been dating a woman for about a year now and we're headed toward marriage. Everything is nearly perfect except in one area: Cooking. My love enjoys cooking but is terrible at it. I have suffered in silence - it's usually only once a week - but if we marry, I can't imagine spending my life eating her cooking. I'm not very good at it myself, but I can make meals that are edible, at least. She really enjoys being in the kitchen, and I know she'd be crushed if I told her how bad her cooking is. I don't want to mess this up. Any solutions?

Q: I GOT married six months ago and, now that I wear a wedding ring, I notice I'm getting more play from women than ever. What's that about?   Mia: They think you're Brad Pitt and they're Angelina Jolie, and that your wife will be the next Jennifer Aniston. Don't fall for it.   Steve: This is why I don't wear a wedding ring.   Q: We always host Easter, and this year I'm dreading it. When my wife's mom is around, it's like my wife's been abducted by aliens from outer space.

Q: I MET this guy on a dating site six months ago, and we've been seeing each other ever since. Last week, I was helping him tidy up his place when I found a used condom in the cushion of his couch. Since I'm on birth control, we haven't been using protection, so it's definitely not ours. I can't tell how old it is. When I asked him about it, he just brushed it off. He says it's from before he met me. I'm not so sure. This is keeping me up at night. Mia: Silly girl, why aren't you protecting yourself?

Q: I'm a college student trying to figure a few things out. One of them is, why do some guys force your head down while you're having oral sex? I find this disrespectful. Am I reading too much into this? Also, a hot guy in my dorm texted me a picture of his penis. It totally grossed me out. Aside from avoiding him, how should I handle this?   Mia: Ah, the dreaded head push. That's easy enough to fix. You do it by putting on your big girl panties and telling these dudes to stop.

NOW THAT the NFL has reached a settlement due to head injuries, perhaps the league should have its own head examined. According to the Hollywood Reporter , the NFL has been pursuing Sri Lankan rapper M.I.A. in arbitration following her flipping the bird during her performance with Madonna during the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show. M.I.A. wasn't paid for her halftime show, the NFL custom, but the league still has spent two years seeking $1.5 million from her for allegedly breaching her performance contract and tarnishing the NFL's reputation.

If we're judging strictly by box office numbers, Mamma Mia! marks a watershed for women in theater. Produced, written, and directed by women, since its 1999 London premiere the show has been everywhere, done everything, and raked in billions of dollars to the tunes of an Abba soundtrack. This still-surprisingly feminist plot set on a romantic Greek isle is the Aphrodite of all jukebox musicals: a work so pleasing to the eye and ear that none can resist its charms. Except we're not judging by numbers, we're judging this particular tour (the show's third U.S. tour, and seventh pass through Philadelphia)

Q: I DRIVE a friend of mine home from work every night. One night, at a bar, I met a lady and we went home together. Later, I found out that she is my friend's older sister. They both live in the same house. Now I drop my friend off from work and sneak in the basement later to have sex with his sister. My question is: Should I tell my friend about his sister and myself? I like his sister a lot, but my friend has anger problems, and I don't want him to get mad at me. What to do?

Since seeing Mia Rosenthal's first show of drawings at Gallery Joe two years ago, I've occasionally wondered what she would do for her next solo exhibition there. Would she again develop an idea into one disciplined, project-like body of work, as she had done so nicely in her conceptual revisions of views depicted in well-known Hudson River School paintings? Or would she explore several directions at once, something she seemed eminently capable of doing? It's turned out to be the latter, exhilaratingly so. Rosenthal's familiar crisp, tiny renderings of flora and fauna in black ink on white paper - crowded together, yet each taking up the perfect amount of space; doodlelike, yet orderly - have been deployed in only two drawings in this large show (she has the entire gallery)
