Just can't run very fast OK, so you are saying that this is commonly understood. I wasn't sure beyond the first base part, but are you sure that this always refers to the physical?

Most Americans are familiar with the “base system” baseball metaphor for physical intimacy.
If you’re not familiar with it, you might check out this XKCD comic for the complicated version, or this excerpt from baseball metaphors for sex from Wikipedia: 4.
