Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: He’s got to have it Dear Steve, I’m 23 and am in serious relationship with a man of thirty-seven. I know most would be down on our love, but we love each other too much to care what the outside world may think about it. I would try and continue to argue that age is just a number and all that jazz, but this is a “Strawberry Letter” so I will skip the B.S. My situation is a bit racy when it comes right down to it. Is an old man of 30-something supposed to still have a high sex drive or is it unhealthy in some way? I mean this man will not stay away from me! Sexually I mean. He will want it, get it, complain about how he needs to stay away from it cause its hurting him straining and all that, 10 minutes (not even that much sometimes) later he’s poking his way back for it. Steve I’m 23 and a self-proclaimed addict to the arts of lovemaking, but this man is trying to wear me out. My hips hurt, my mouth is sore and I’m in serious need of a time out! He even tries to get some after we have been arguing! I know that something has to be wrong. No man has got to have sex 24/7, or do they? Please help. P.S. could y’all actually play Strawberry Letter 23 for me? I love the song. I wish I could hear it on the show from time to time.
