Getting to third base
is the most ambiguous stage of high-school heterosexual
interaction. The definition
really depends on how far the boy goes: is it an intermediate stage followed by going all the way, or is it the final stage of making out
that follows is from the boy's perspective) When I was a kid (mid-70s) it meant groping
skin-to-skin instead of through the clothes
. Today it's gone farther: "getting to third" implies that you eventually squirted; "I got as far as third" means that you didn't do it inside her (hand job, blow job, dry-hump, just lose it while making out
, etc.). If you go all the way, it doesn't really matter when you got to third.
"How far did you go?"
, dude! She wouldn't drop her panties
, but we kept at it until I spooged my boxers."
