Tune in for a very special solo episode of Dear Prudence. First, she helps a woman who wonders if her bedroom role play is bad for her. Then, Prudie’s advice on dealing with strangers commenting on your daughter’s red hair; talking about your unwanted pregnancy while your sister can’t conceive; telling your co-workers you don’t want to talk politics; and recognizing if an ex’s behavior qualified as emotional abuse. Plus, what to do when a friend insists she had more than an emotional affair with your wife.
