Sex and Baseball: Covering the Bases

So ever since middle school, you likely started to hear others talk about guys and girls going to “first base.” There are a few variations on the bases when referring to sexual activity. I will be discussing the most common one.
First Base – Simply put, first base is kissing. Some people define it only as French kissing, while others include all kissing.
Second Base – This is going up a girl’s shirt and fondling her breasts. It also includes using the mouth on the breasts. Some people refer to that as “sloppy seconds.”
Third Base – This encompasses the most sexual activities. Third base is any touching of the genitals. Thus masturbating your partner whether it is fingering the girl or giving the guy a hand job. Also included in third base is oral sex. Giving a guy a blowjob or eating a girl out is also considered to be getting to third base.
Home Plate – Reaching home is used to refer to having sex.
Quite frankly, this is really only used by kids in middle and some in high school. Later on, people usually just say “hooking up” which is even more vague.
Hopefully now you have a better understanding of what people are talking about when somebody says, “I got to third base with Kelly this weekend.”
