[aside] for those who may not know, this “bases” traditionally are:
Second: Play above the waist
Third: Play below the waist
Home Run: Actual sex
Usage is in discussion with friends afterward, “Oh, I only got to first base.” …or…
Q: “How was your date?”
A: “Home Run!”
A further aside would be to wonder if the Brits do this with cricket terms…
So, the lady wife and I have had an argument that goes way back to the first time. (note: say this with proper echoed intonations for full effect).
In the midst our our play, she reached first for the nether regions. When we reviewed this later, I said she went for “third base” first. She insisted that, no, she didn’t, since men don’t have “second base” above the waist ours must instead be below.
I insist she did in fact go to third base, thus signalling that our playtime had entered a whole new level. While I fully acknowlege that this is a a silly argument to have, the question remains, Do guys have a second base?
The “Base” system, as learned in high school, is a simple social/dating tool used by “So Horney It Hurts” teen boys to determine a girls willingness to contribute to the next six months worth of masturbatory fanticies. Anything actually said by one teen boy to another about “Base” success is an obvious lie.
“Bases” used by teen girls and as understood by teen boys is as follows. Any time a girl touches anything (i.e. your car, arm, jacket, the burger you just bought her, her hair, breathes, etc) it means she wants to have sex with you.
There are no bases in cricket. The batsmen just go back and forth, back and forth…well, I suppose that’s something.
I suppose it could go something like this, though:
1 run. “Tickled around leg for a single”
2 runs. “Through the slips for two”
3 runs. “Between the covers for three”
4 runs. "Four"play
6 runs. And since a “six” in cricket is roughly analagous to a home run in baseball, this last should be obvious.
Explanation of the above on request, not that I think it would catch on.
