    I don't really get the why anyone would wear a jockstrap instead of just plain briefs or boxer briefs they all do the same thing. I get jock straps are a fetish for most gay men but what is the point other than that?

    I wish I knew too. I never understood the purpose for wearing them except they are used for sports and every day wear. I heard they provide excellent support and lift.

    If I'm playing a sport or working out, a standard jock keeps the equipment well contained and out of harm's way.

    For regular wear, they can help keep the bulge front and center. They're comfortable, and I also feel HAWT when I wear one. Sometimes I'll head out wearing a jock under my jeans and I know I'm wearing one .... and knowing I have one on makes me feel confident and sexy.

    I find the jockstrap handy mostly for workouts cause they don't restrict your movement and give you good support. Only problem is I can't find many places to get a decent jockstrap.

    Sometimes I might wear them casually mostly cause it also is cooler than trunks which I normally wear.

    One thing I don't get is why is it most American underwear has no proper support? I purchased some American Apparel on my last trip over there and constantly have to readjust cause my balls end up between my legs all the time! The same goes for many European brands. Guess I'll just stick with my good old Aussie Bonds Trunks!

    What does support mean?

    This equipment was designed to be external or it would be internal. It is designed to hang our it would be hard to hang out or be well hung.

    Is this moral support? I support your lifestyle choices.

    Sorry I like Jockstraps (and I get the one with the hard cup) but otherwise???

    Most of the time I wear boxer briefs. However, I wear compression shorts when I work out. I like to make sure everything is supported and stays in place The regular boxer briefs have a tendency to let things shift around and also ride up when I move around a lot.

    So you can walk up to a guy in the locker room, give him a nice firm but gentle slap on the bare flesh of his ass and run your hand between his cheeks and along the crack of his ass

    DUH! icon_cool.gif








    They also prevent material riding up your ass and giving you a weggi when your running and boxers would become sweaty, damp and clingy

    i think underwear is designed to prevent soiling of trousers and the anus is one source of soiling. a jock strap does not offer protection in that respect. of course if u are a god u dont have a soily anus. and if u are rich u dont worry about cleaning costs on pants (one wear and they are out of season anyway).

    The modern style jockstrap was invented in the late 1800s to hold up (support) a man's genitals while riding on the saddle of that very popular new invention, the diamond-framed bicycle. Hence, one of the earliest jock manufactures, still in business today, named itself "Bike" with a spoked wheel logo.

    When the jockstrap was introduced, men's loose underwear styles provided virtually no lift. Horseback riders had to make do with something called a "suspensory" which was a small cloth pouch that supported just the scrotum, secured around the waist with cloth ties.

    Athletes soon discovered that the new jockstrap was ideal for active sports, holding the genitals snugly to prevent distracting flopping, or contact with gymnastic equipment. For here again, there were no other good clothing alternatives available for this purpose, just when the pursuit of athletics & sports by the general public became a late Victorian fad, like the bicycle. (A growing interest that eventually led to the founding of the modern Olympics)

    Today's underwear does largely eliminate the need for a jock, except when a protective cup is desired. But most underwear styles lack the separate deep pouch design, instead tending to pull the genitals back flat against the body. Some men find a jock more cool and comfortable with certain strenuous activities, especially when sweat would make some underwear become damp and limp.

    And of course a jock is a 100% male garment, that women have yet to appropriate for themselves. Even the necktie is no longer a masculine exclusive, but a jock remains so. It's as male as male can get, unique to the way we're built, and associated with the traditional manly activities of sports & athletics.

    And as a gay man myself, what it does to a lovely trim ass has no visual equal for me, not to mention how it creates a great basket. Wearing jocks, and admiring them, is a wonderful male perk that I hope won't ever become obsolete.

    I agree the "equipment" is supposed to be external and hang but sometimes your pants/underpants can push that hang back towards the body too much and into the oncoming path of your groin! icon_smile.gif

    Depends on what I'm doing and how I'm feeling to be honest. If I'm playing sports or working out I like to wear jockstraps plus if I'm feeling sexy I enjoy to wear them as well. Everyone loves to feel sexy in something I guess.

    Other then that I wear boxer briefs. They are snug and give me that support I need. I also like how seductive they can be.

    only when I'm feeling particularly athletic will I wear a jock as underwear- otherwise I prefer boxerbriefs or briefs, and the occasional commando;)

    What? Female parachutists wear jocks. It stops them from whistling on the way down.

    Isn't the loose fabric flapping a problem? Or do they stick their mineral water bottle down there?

    I'm with you CO, something sexy about a guy in a jock, or wearing one yourself. I used to wear then to the gym, but I've switched to wearing compression shorts now. I still wear a jock under my clothes though sometimes, and only you know, and maybe a lucky guy icon_cool.gif

    You deserve a medal for that posting, plus you summarized for me why I love to wear an old school jockstrap.
