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'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.

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: 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.

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?

Q: I have been with my fiancée for almost six years. We were engaged and moved into a house a few months ago. Now she says she needs time and space to figure things out. Do I give her time? If so, how much? Steve: I suspect there's a specific reason for her cold feet. Find out what it is. Mia: If things drag on too long, it's not as if you have to sit around and wait for Miss Thing to make up her mind. You need to be living your life, and if that includes dating other honeys, then so be it. Don't be sneaky about it, though.

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 After 10 years of marriage, my husband and I have divorced. I'm in my 40s and wonder what kind of men are out there and how easy it is to find one for a serious relationship. Your thoughts? Steve: As Meg said in "The Big Chill," "They're either married or gay. And if they're not gay, they've just broken up with the most wonderful woman in the world. Or they've just broken up with a bitch who looks exactly like me. " Mia: If you're a vibrant 40-something woman, you'll do just fine in the dating market.

Q: If my first boyfriend from 40 years ago e-mailed me and sent me his phone number and told me to call, should I have called him? I've talked to him twice in 40 years. I didn't feel comfortable calling him. It has a lot to do with all of the rejection I've had all my life. At some point, you just give up. Mia: Miss talking to him, don't you? Don't play games, call that man, do it today. He'll be glad to hear from you. As for your man baggage, dump it. If you don't, you'll never find happiness in a relationship.

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)

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.
