XKCD Explains The “Base” System

XKCD: I once got to second base with a basketball player. She was so confused.

This is what happens when you visit XKCD and hit “random.” You find out that ‘sex in crotchless fursuits’ is considered so far in the outfield it could almost be a home run if it’s a dead start from first base.

Read: in the above comic, XKCD explains the antiquated system of American shorthand terminology for sexual accomplishment, aka the “base” system.

Ah, baseball metaphors for sex.

As I’ve said before, the classic definition of the base system is fine if all you want to do is run around in circles.
