The 4 bases of dating
A similar example can be found in Billy Joel's song "Zanzibar" in which he compares himself to Pete Rose and sings the lines "Me, I'm trying just to get to second base and I'd steal it if she only gave the sign.
She's gonna give the go ahead, the inning isn't over yet for me." Leman and Bell, in their book A Chicken's Guide to Talking Turkey With Your Kids About Sex, make use of it to aid parents in the discussion of puberty with their children, dividing the topics into "first base" ("Changes from the neck up"), "second base" ("Changes from the neck to the waist"), "third base" ("Changes from the waist down"), and "home plate" ("The Big 'It'").
Speaking of sexual activity in terms of bases, sometimes doing so can make the interaction with your partner(s) seem more goal-oriented (i.e., to “hit that home run”, or “get to home base”).
Keep in mind that sexual activity doesn’t just have to be about how far you can get with someone.
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).
Often, the most pleasurable sexual activity occurs when both or all partners are focused on the experience — rather than an end goal.
Another crucial piece to rounding any of the bases is making sure that you and your partner(s) have mutually consented.
But I think this is kissing, holding, maybe what the kid’s called “necking”, back in 1973. Hands in appropriate places and just having a solid makeout session. Think of second base as fun with the body’s largest organ! I don’t really know if there’s a name for the female handjob except the phrase “diddling” which just makes me feel like a gross old man to say. So you may have that second base lead-off and eyeballing second base like a fat kid staring at a burrito, but before you go sliding in face first (not feet first, you could seriously injure somebody. ) here’s where you want to pump the brakes for a second and refer to Episode 5, “And She Has a Weird Rash”.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?
