Dear Alice, Some of the girls at my school talk about how their boyfriends got to first, second, or third base with them.I feel kind of left out because I don't know exactly what they are. Whether you're hitting a home run or striking out, it helps to have the low down on the latest sexual terminology — not just because others are talking about it, but it may be helpful when communicating with potential partner(s). The real deal is that the goal is to be wherever you are comfortable being. Let’s get down to it and help you figure out what the bases mean: First Base First base usually refers to tongue kissing, which is also called french kissing or frenching. The whole thing is a little dated because it assumes that, as in a game, that the goal is to win by eventually go all the way.In other words, fingering, a hand job or oral sex is third base. Home Base Home base is also called a home run or going all the way. If one person puts their hands or mouth on the other person’s genitals, they’re on third base.
Get that, and just bust it out before you do anything and have a look. Even dudes who go against Darwinism are being allowed to still run the bases. There are, as the top comment on this question notes, four bases in baseball, and these have corresponding sex acts associated with them. "I got to second base with that girl yesterday." "I didn't think I had a chance, but I made it to third base with her last night." One of the other answers has provided a nice link to the Wikipedia entry for baseball metaphors for sex.Just for the record, I don’t know if I’ve ever been completely taught what the “bases” are, but let’s give it a shot. So you know how in baseball, before you steal a base, you take a good solid lead-off?Figure if anything, we can sort it out together as we move along. Now depending on how far into this we get, I think this is like kissing. Not that I’m saying you’re going to rape the girl at 3rd base, but, this is just more like an intermediary bridge between second and third.
