STEVEN PETROW, the author of Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners: The Definitive Guide to LGBT Life , goes places that would have given Emily Post the vapors. He plunges into a diverse range of subjects including what I'll call the etiquette of fellatio. (Stop reading now if you're easily offended.) A polite gay man doesn't just do the "head shove," but instead tells his partner what he likes. And once things get busy below the belt, a mannerly man doesn't just - uh, you know - but instead warns his partner.

A hundred years from now, when movies have gone the way of the dodo and the history of film is written, Hollywood will be remembered for three things: gangster movies, westerns, and gross-out comedies. Keen minds will note that the first two genres typically involve men behaving badly and the third boys behaving bodily. Road Trip, the latest of these revels without a pause, is not as consistently or subversively funny as American Pie, but it does have a Zen zaniness that gives it center as well as edge.

On Valentine's Day we proclaim or reiterate our undying passion for our current significant other. We rush to send roses - nothing less than a dozen of the reddest and longest stemmed will do. And chocolates, in large heart- shaped boxes festooned with gilt and lace. We give balloons or teddy bears or teddies. And we place large personals ads in the paper with messages of devotion ornamented with a heart. But if you're really in love in the '90s, consider giving this: a promise that if love goes sour - and the statistics are pretty good that it will - you'll agree to attend "exit counseling" with your now insignificant other.

Blood tests of 290 women at Pennsylvania Hospital failed to turn up the mother from whose placenta a fertility serum was made that later was shown to contain the AIDS antibody, the hospital has announced. Hospital officials had invited the 581 mothers who gave birth at the hospital this past June and July to take the AIDS screening test in an effort to locate the source of the contamination. Hospital officials fear the mother is unaware she is carrying the AIDS antibody, and added that the tainted placenta could have come from more than one mother.

I was modestly heartened by the Baby M decision. But much work is needed before surrogacy can be sage for all. I must consider a surrogate contract if I am to father a child. My other options are dumping my beloved partner (which stinks) and adopting (which is costly, far from certain, and risky to both parent and child). I don't know which I would choose, but I would like a surrogate contract to be among them. Some call me selfish. "Why should you have to rear your own blood child?"

First you could buy books on the Web. Then you could trade stocks. And now, you can bid on human eggs at a new site called Ronsangels.com, which offers the eggs of super-models to the highest bidder. These would-be parents hope to make an investment that will pay off in a beautiful child. That's like paying extra for something you're already guaranteed to get. If you invest more money in a house or a car, you'll get a more beautiful house or car. But any baby you have will be beautiful.

The judge who awarded custody of "Baby M" to her biological father strongly backed what he called "alternative methods of reproduction," but called on states to regulate surrogate births. Superior Court Judge Harvey R. Sorkow forged legal history yesterday with his decision to uphold a contract between a sperm donor and a surrogate mother. In his 121-page opinion, however, the judge noted that new laws would "give our society a sense of definition and direction if the concept is to be allowed to further develop.

The first time Andrew Botwin said "Daddy," his mother gulped. Was this the moment Shari Botwin had anguished about ever since deciding, at age 38, to have a baby on her own? Was this the time to begin explaining about "choice mommies" and "donor daddies"? But Andrew didn't seem worried, Botwin recalled. He wasn't asking a question. He was trying out the new word with a 2-year-old's exuberance, the same way he yelps "Dora!" while watching television or "broccoli!" when naming his favorite foods.
