The four bases of dating
My friend and I are curious what the 3 bases in dating are. She wants to get to base 3 with her boyfriend (whatever it is) but I think she is way too young to go that far.
So what age do you think she should be before she considers going that far?
(I’ve not observed sociopathy developing – instead “I’m deeply disappointed” produces a strong response.) I think this way, because as I grew up, I became fiercely independent to the point, that anything my parents would say, I tried the opposite. I think the psychological risk of harm is less above age 16, and really should not be pushed at any age.
In life sex grows on trees, there is no need to run up and down the street screaming “do me! ” This might be a good question to use on your parents so measure the shock value, try it while they’re drinking milk to see if you can get it to go out their nose.
You have all the time in the world to get that contract signed.
There’s no definite, universal definition for the bases. As a general guideline, I’d say: Base 1 Kissing Base 2 Making out with clothes (or with most clothes on anyway, hands above or below clothes) Base 3 Making out without clothes (or without most clothes, hands going in very intimate places, possible oral sex, orgasm) There’s also no hard-and-fast age for each base.
– I try to raise my sons on the idea that sex is a realm of personal responsibility we must face as adults, whether or not you are one.
Also there are some who will have difficulty with intimacy at any age without therapy.
It pains me to recollect all the things I did in youth.
I think a very safe age is when you are an adult, then it is your life, your body.
You still by the way, will have adult responsibilities.
