Today’s topic: Sexual Love

Good morning my good friends of The Steve Harvey Show, 

I have something for you all. Maybe you can help me find out a solution for this situation. Look, I am a hard-working young man who is so easy to get along with, and always willing to please my woman when I can. We have been together for 14 months and we both have our calm movie days, tired days, or just days when we just wil hold one another and go to sleep. It has been a while for us and at about 2 a.m. in the morning I was in the mood, so I threw out some hints to my baby to let her know, “I’m ready.” I got no reaction so I figured she was tired. I understand my sweet baby wants to sleep, but I could not go to sleep so I handled my business because I just wanted to sleep before I had to go to work. The next day she questioned me about that night. She said she was not sleep and she was watching me the whole time. So she knew what I wanted and played like she was sleep. She got mad at me because I did what I did. Do I have the right to be mad at her for faking and putting me to the test just to see what I would do? I just need some input, I love her to death and I did not take it as a big deal. Shirley what would you do if you caught your man handling his business?
