How well should people know each other before they have sex? In the biggest classroom at UC Santa Barbara, sociology professors John and Janice Baldwin are reeling off survey results showing that male and female students are almost equally willing to sleep with someone they love. But the hall erupts in knowing laughter as a gender gap emerges: Men, the long-married couple reports, remain eager for sex through descending categories of friendship and casual acquaintance. Women don't.

State securities regulators, who now have the power to kick Drexel Burnham Lambert Inc. out of their territory, are seriously considering whether they should take action against the investment banking firm. Drexel's agreement to settle massive securities fraud charges with the Securities and Exchange Commission and to plead guilty to six felonies allows local regulators to charge Drexel with breaking state laws. The Drexel settlement was obviously on the administrators' minds as most speakers mentioned it during a recent day-long session titled "The Wall Street Scandals: What Are the Public Policy Implications?"

It wasn't part of their routine, and Rena Inoue was puzzled. She and John Baldwin were taking their bows last Saturday after their finale at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, waving to the crowd as they had done hundreds of times. But when she turned to face another section of St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center, Baldwin wasn't beside her. He was down on one knee, reaching for her hands. "I thought at first he was tired or something," Inoue said. "I was looking at him like, 'What's going on?'

Leave it to the L.A. guy, the one with the blond hair and bare chest, to celebrate skating history as if it were beach volleyball. Shortly after John Baldwin threw and twirled Rena Inoue from here to Turin, he shouted and pumped his fist at her. Then he made out with her. At center ice. "C'mon, I've kissed her before," Baldwin said. "But never, ever on the lips in public," his father, John Sr., said.

John Baldwin remembers walking to a nightclub near the hotel where he and partner Rena Inoue were staying last month during the Grand Prix figure skating final in St. Petersburg, Russia. Inoue, tired after their exhibition performance and wary of venturing beyond the hotel, remained in their room while Baldwin and another skater went out with two women they had met during the competition. The group was together about an hour, until he went to search for a restroom.

Tatiana Totmianina and Maxim Marinin are poised to extend the Olympic winning streak of Soviet or Russian pairs to 11, ranking first entering today's finale. Zhang Dan and Zhang Hao of China are second, followed by Maria Petrova and Alexei Tikhonov of Russia. U.S. champions Rena Inoue and John Baldwin of Santa Monica are sixth but within reach of a medal if they again land a throw triple axel, a difficult move only they have landed in competition. -- Helene Elliott
