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.

Hello there On a Monday in January 2010, DJ was in the chair for his appointment with Dr. Rosen, his dentist since childhood. "Before she could even start doing my checkup, she ran out of the room, and said she'd be right back," DJ remembered. Dr. Rosen returned with her business card, the name "Colie" and a phone number written on the back. "Do me a favor, and call this girl," Dr. Rosen suggested, promising that Colie was a wonderful, outgoing person, and predicted they'd click.

TODAY IS Valentine's Day. It is also Steve and Mia's 10th anniversary of writing about romance for the Daily News . To celebrate, we asked them to discuss what they've learned from readers over the years and to offer some advice for fun V-Day weekend activities. Here's what they had to say: Steve: Ah, Valentine's Day! Ah, romance! Ah, fooey! Mia: What's the matter Steve, not in a romantic mood? Steve: Romance is wonderful, but it is never without its constant companion, anguish.

Q: I READ your column regularly but I've never seen a problem like mine addressed. Maybe it's because I have the opposite problem of a lot of women in my situation. I'm a successful black professional female with no kids. I don't have any problem getting asked out, but I'm in my 40s and if I'm going to have a baby, it's now or never. Each of the guys I'm talking to would make a really great dad. But they also each have pluses and minuses. One has school-age kids, and I can't deal with his baby-mama drama.

Q: I SEE ads on TV for people who've lost their desire, but what about those who want it more than ever? I feel like I'm on fire and constantly wanting sex. What's strange is that I'm at a time in life when the exact opposite is supposed to be happening. My husband thinks I'm a nympho and says I need my head examined. Me, I think it has something to do with getting close to menopausal age. Help! Mia: I hate to tell you this, but you're going to have to see your gynecologist to check things out. Meanwhile, what's your husband complaining about?

Q: I'M IN a new relationship. Whenever we are about to have sex, I see my partner reaching for the wine bottle. What's up with that? I tried talking to her about it but she just keeps on doing it. Is this something I should worry about? Mia: Maybe. Alcoholism is a complex addiction. But something tells me your girlfriend is using booze to lower her sexual inhibitions. Keep talking to her. And also keep an eye peeled to see if alcohol is an issue anywhere else in her life. If so, you may have to stage an intervention.
