Reports reveal that the woman had written a letter to his radio show saying her boyfriend had sex with her while she was passed out, wanting to know how to deal with the situation which many would have proclaimed as rape.

The letter the unidentified woman sent in had read:

"Good Morning Shirley & Steve!

"I’m a 23-year-old working woman who is madly in love with her 27-year-old working man with whom I’ve been with for over three years.

"One day, I went out with my friends and I drunk more alcohol than I was suppose to. Once I came home, I started to get sick and passed out. In the middle of the night, my boyfriend woke me up and told me to clean myself up. Confused, I asked him why. He says because we just had sex. Of course, I had no knowledge of it because I passed out because of the late night drinking.

"The next morning, I asked what happened the night before. He says that he came home, saw me in bed and wanted to have sex. He said I didn’t move or talk but just thought I was really tired. (Even though there was a tall trashcan right beside the bed and apparently my head was halfway in it).

"Would you consider this a sexual assault? How can I tell him without hurting him, or scaring him to think that I’m labeling him as a 'rapist'."

Steve's advice which should have been more considerate and comforting, was anything but as he justified her boyfriend's actions with the fact that most guys have done the same thing, including himself.

"This is kinda a tough one for a man to answer because we've all done this. Tried it anyway. All of us. I done actually tried to Army climb from up from under the bed trying to get to it...We've all tried it. It's called the sneak-attack...

"Y'all live together. He told you what he did. He woke you up to make sure you got cleaned up. He told you what he did. A person who did something that they think is really wrong is usually in denial about it. Did he rape you in my estimation - NO. Because you all have had [sex]."

Rape is rape as far as the sex is not consensual, be it in a relationship or otherwise or with a new or previous sex partner.

Of course, fans came for him over his unprofessional advice.
