Have you ever heard of a baseball terminology in the sex world? If you have no idea what the term means, don't worry. This article will take you through one baseball sex terminology; the second base. 

Whether you are a hitter or a relief pitcher on the mound, you are likely to be confused about the baseball terminology in sex. The terminology has been made popular by pop culture. Several bases correlate to various levels of intimacy when you are with your partner. It is always assumed that the first base level of intimacy is kissing, and the last one is having penetrative sex. However, as we all know, many things are bound to happen between kissing and having penetrative sex. So, you might ask yourself, where do the foreplay activities such as hand jobs and fingering lie on the scale? For that reason, this article will break down the different level bases of intimacy for easy understanding. 

Bases Of Romance 

The following are traditional rundowns of the known bases of romance:

The First Base 

It involves kissing, caressing, and touching each other while the clothes are still on. 

Second Base 

It involves touching and caressing underneath the clothes. It also involves fingering, giving blowjobs, hand jobs, or eating the pussy.

Third Base

This base mainly consists of oral sex. It can be anilingus, fellatio, or cunnilingus

This involves any other sexual activity and is the main stage for penetration. 

The baseball leveling of intimacy is inaccurate in measurements. Touching under or above the clothing is far from fingering. Someone might not be ready for either fingering or hand job at this stage. For adults, there are some overall boundaries between each stage. 

As you get old and mature, you sometimes realize that love, romance, and lust are topics out of the norm and are of different base levels. With time, you will gather experience and new information about romance and realize that in sex, more levels need to be considered other than the small arbitrary stages. 

For adults, the base system can be categorized in the following manner:

The First Base 

This section involves clarification of each other’s intentions. Partners should make it clear to each other whether they want to have sex or if they are just available for a catch-up. At the end of this level, the intention should be clear, whether agreeing or declining. 

The Second Base 

This stage involves both partners making plans to be somewhere private. In his base, partners should create time and plan on ways to be together to get to know each other and make some arrangements for the next stage. 

The Third Base 

The third base involves partners being intimate with actual sex and some foreplay activities kicking in. Sexual activities such as foreplay, oral sex, kissing, and penetrative sex are incorporated. Unlike the other romantic bases, any sexual activity falls under this stage for adults.

In this stage, partners are through with their objectives and decide whether to do it once more or not. As adults, you will realize that the sole goal of intimacy between partners does not end with penetrative sex. It involves the partners' will to do the same thing once again or even more frequently.

The above steps may sound like a complete and accurate breakdown of the stages of romance, but it only applies to adults who understand boundaries. However, you must remember that the analogy is not specific and can differ depending on a person. 

At this stage, you won’t be embarrassed when your partner asks you about the bases of romance because you will have an idea or two. You may come across someone who doesn’t know about the bases of sex, and that is okay. When interacting with your partner about sex and sexual activities, communicating with the base terms is more gal-oriented than using direct language. Remember that sexual activities don't always have to do with how far you get with your partner. The most pleasurable moments in sexual activities only occur when both partners focus on the experience instead of the endpoint. 

The Bottom Line 

It is always important to know about the bases of sex. These bases involve several aspects that will help you mingle with your partner without being in embarrassing situations. Another crucial thing about sexual bases is ensuring you and your partner have reached the same harmonious conclusion. Asking for your partner's consent before, after, or during the act helps in knowing how to express what you want and how to give your partner what they want. If your partner plans to use a base level, you have to be prepared because there is no holding back when it starts. The terminologies help in communicating with your potential partner. So, it is best if you know them beforehand.
