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 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.

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.

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)

Q: I'M a gay man who recently met a guy on Jack'd (a gay social app). At first, it was nothing serious. It was just for sex. I'm a strict top. He's a bottom. But last month, I saw him out with his daughter (he's bisexual), and I found myself looking at him in a different way. I think he did the same with me once he saw me all dressed up in business clothes. What concerns me is that he says he still has urges for women. We've been seeing each other for the last couple of weeks, and I'm wondering if things could ever work out between us. Mia: It's possible.
