“Wine, dine and sixty-nine”

"Wine, dine and sixty-nine” (also “Wine me, dine me, sixty-nine me") is one version of date. The slang term “sixty-nine" (69) is a sexual position. “Wine me, Dine me, 69 me” has been cited in print since at least 1991, when the saying was printed on T-shirts.

Alanis Morisette Lyrics
“Right Through You” (1995)
(...)
You took me for a joke
You took me for a child
You took a long hard look at my ass
And then played golf for a while
Your shake is like a fish
You pat me on the head
You took me out to wine dine 69 me
But didn’t hear a damn word I said
