A female reader, anonymous, writes (27 May 2008):

Having never actually refered to activities in "bases" it doesn't make much difference to me, but here's what I understand them to be.

1st base = Hugging, Kissing, Holding Hands etc.

2nd base = Touching (or licking i guess) somewhere that is not the genitals. Such as fondling breasts.

3rd base = Fingering, hand jobs and oral sex.

4th base/Home run = Full sex (intercourse).

^ Hope this helps...even though it differs a little from the other posts! xD

Tisha-1 agony auntWhen I was a teenager, lo these 30 years ago (GASP!), the bases were divided geographically, so to speak.

First base was above the neck, therefore kissing.

Second base was anything above the waist.

Third base was anything except intercourse below the waist.

And the home run was intercourse.

But as time changes word use and definitions, the same may have happened to this particular metaphor.

Hope this helps!
