Q: I have an issue that cost me my relationship. My girlfriend (now my ex) has a tattoo on her arm that says "Big John" with a heart drawn next to the letters. I was very upset and offended when I was out with her and it was visible. I was seeing her for approximately four years and everyday when I see her, I had to look at that stupid tattoo. We had many arguments and disagreements about this. She felt, if I was tired of looking at it, I should pay to have it removed or covered. I was really tired of looking at it. My suggestion to her was to at least wear a long-sleeved shirt to cover it. I am curious as to what you both think.

Q: My husband and I have a sometimes volatile relationship. Nothing major, but there have been times when we were drinking that things got out of hand. He recently purchased a pistol for self-protection. He keeps it locked away, but it makes me crazy just knowing it's in the house. It's not like I think he would actually use it, but when we argue, the fact that it's here is in the back of my mind. We have been going back and forth on this and getting nowhere. Mia: Your problems are bigger than that gun, girlfriend.

Q: I'm just finishing my junior year in college and had a great relationship with a sophomore the last two semesters. Now, I'm worried. She told me she loves me, but she lives in California. I live in New Jersey and both of us return home and have to work summer jobs. When I asked her if she'd date anyone while we were apart, she said she has some friends there, but nothing serious. Does that mean she'd have sex? What should I do? Mia: Dude, summer hasn't even started and you're already sweating a girl?

Q: I'm in a relationship with a prude. She calls me a pervert for wanting to see her naked, which hardly happens anymore. She calls me a pervert when I touch her on the butt. She found an old sex toy I had and threw it away, then called me strange for even having one. When I try to talk with her, she claims she's a lesbian and wants us to be together just to raise our kids. I'm not sure how much longer I can be in a sexless relationship. Steve: Wait, you two had kids and she didn't say she's lesbian?

Q: How do I get the man in my life to be more open? We've been dating for three months, and everything has been near perfect, except he won't tell me anything about himself. I ask about his job, and he says, "I never talk about my work. " I ask about his family, and he says next to nothing. His dad was in the service, and they lived in eight or nine different places as he grew up. Both his parents are dead, and he says he has no siblings. I researched his name online and could find nothing.

Q: I've been dating a woman for almost two years and I am deeply in love. But the more intense I feel, the more she backs off. She enjoys being with me but refuses to talk marriage. We're in our mid-20s. I just don't know what to do next. What she will do next? Steve: Ah, I see the problem. Have you tried the Hall & Oates strategy? ... wrap yourself around me 'Cos I ain't the way you found me And I'll never be the same Oh, yeah Well, 'cos you (Ooh-ho, hoo-ooh, ooh-oo)

ISSUE | ANTONIN SCALIA Obama failed us I taught my government students that one of the major roles of the president of the United States is chief citizen, representing all citizens of the country. In this role, President Obama should have attended the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia ("Scalia's life of faith is reflected," Sunday). When you attend a funeral, you are paying respects to the grieving family and showing them that you feel for their loss. Scalia spent decades interpreting the wonderful document that created this nation.

Q: I went all out for Christmas, and my woman was very happy. Now she wants me to go all out for Valentine's Day. Should I tone it down next year? Steve: For romance, nothing beats Valentine's Day. Think of it as your Super Bowl. You have to give the best you possibly can, make no turnovers or misreads. Give it 100%, show her your best, and your woman will make you a winner. Now go out there and do it! Mia: Dude, you want it both ways. You want your woman to hop up and down when, say, the big game is on, but when it's something for her like Valentine's Day, then the timing isn't right or it's too expensive.

With our first question this week, we decided to weigh in on an issue that has been very much in the news lately: anal play. First, some background: Hip-hop stars Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa got in a big Twitter feud that started after Khalifa referred to marijuana using the street term "kk. " West mistakenly thought Khalifa was talking about his wife, Kim Kardashian West, and began lobbing insults at Khalifa via social media. Amber Rose, who has been romantically linked to West and was married to Khalifa, jumped in and alluded to a certain type of backdoor action she claimed she used to do to West.

The 2015-2016 Penn Humanities Forum on Sex has sponsored a film series prompting discussions about same-sex marriage, gender-bender fashions and continued gender inequities in corporate boardrooms. Does this mean we're living in a revolutionary era on sex? Daily News romance columnists Steve and Mia decided to seek answers to that question at the recently opened exhibit at the Penn Museum, "Sex: A History in 30 Objects. " We asked them to check out the exhibit, which features artifacts from around the world, and then tell us whether we're currently in a revolution or just the latest version of civilization's eternal obsession with sex. Here's what they had to say: Steve: Professor Heather Love is topic director for the Penn Humanities Forum.
