    Does anyone here free-ball at the gym? [not wearing underwear/supporter under your shorts.]

    I'm not endorsing it, or judging it, just curious.

    I do, most of the time. I generally only wear underwear when I'm doing cardio, for support. I don't wear really baggy shorts, because I'm sure most people don't want to see my junk when they're trying to work out. But the way I see it, with having to do all my laundry at a laundromat, I'm not going to get a pair of underwear all sweaty just for an hour's workout. It just seems like a waste. The shorts I wear also make it difficult to tell if I'm wearing underwear or not. They're not baggy, but not tight either.

    I have seen guys freeball it at the gym but I would certainly NOT do that.
    Several sports trainers and Doctors have told me that you are doing long term damage to your testicles by bouncing around or getting hit with no support.

    Even at straight volleyball I have seen a few guys playing in just shorts ... it's funny when they sit down and you can see their genitals through the shorts legs.

    I´d free ball if Tanky was there, just to get him excited. Then, when he followed me to the changing room, I´d talk to him with no clothes on. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Do you guys also not freeball outside of the gym? I generally either don't wear any or wear boxers, which don't provide extra support either.
    For something like volleyball, sure, I'd see needing support. But doing a workout at the gym, with squats, leg presses, lunges, and any upper-body exercise, I just don't see them as being 'active' enough to necessitate needing a ton of support.

    I can't do freeballing, it just don't feel right, it just aint right for me, things have to be contained and held, that be underwear or a hand, I don't care, I just don't want it all flapping around.

    I am exactly the opposite; I like my junk to flap around especially when I am working out, running or other cardio. I can't stand having everything held in tight; which is probably why I free-ball 24/7.

    I agree. Based on a friend's comment, I tried free-balling at the gym, and like it. I wear baggy shorts so it's not obvious. and when I'm just lifting, I don't feel like I need the "support". Now, when I am doing "active"exercises (running, etc), I'll wear a jock, so I don't flop around.

    I freeball most of the time, even at the gym on lifting days. If I am doing cardio, cycling or martial arts I secure the boys!

    I never free-ball in the gym. I don't want that flopping distraction when I'm doing cardio. I also come from a generation when our brief, snug gym shorts didn't look like 17th-Century pirate pantaloons, and you needed some confinement for the sake of modesty.

    I do recall being in a men's health club in 1982, and seeing some guy next to me in the locker room dressing to play racquetball. And he put on these fairly brief, unlined shorts without any jock or underwear, and I remember thinking that was very strange. So I guess sports free-balling had been around for a long time.

    I don't freeball ever, except when I'm wearing boxer at night for sleeping.

    Sometimes I like to freeball at gym when lifting.

    I kinda get a rush being able to see the head of my dick under my workout shorts, but kinda risky when getting boners on the gym floor. Gotta keep my gym towel there for sudden cover! icon_smile.gif)

    I also kinda enjoy seeing other dudes freeballing too. I only ever do it when lifting. But always wear a jock when doing cardio.

    I started to free ball it in my gym shorts over a half decade ago. Haven't looked back since. It's just nice and simple. I don't like that extra pair of sweaty undies to deal with. And my gym shorts are thick and do a good job of keeping me from looking like I'm trying g to show off my junk. When I stand doing curls, though, I think some guys notice and watch that dick outline that can be seen by the light and shadows on the front of my shorts. It it were a blatant boner I was sporting, I couldn't stand there doing that, but if the notice something otherwise, it doesn't seem like a big deal.

    I hate Jock straps. Always have.

    Workouts and running, though, I tuck the boys away into come compression shorts under my baggier running/workout shorts.

    I generally wear a loose boxer day-to-day and have gone commando on some occasions. tried the free-wheel and flopping feel of a run and hated it.

    To each their own, I guess...

    Now I have to go fine 6packabs' gym and watch him do curls... ;-)

    I'm a jockstrap dude myself (phallus flop is distracting). The only freeballer I ever knew of at my gym was an official card-carrying Creepy Old Guy who, when he felt like it, would hike up his shorts and show off his official creepy old guy junk. Unfortunately for him, one of the trainers saw his little antic, and he quickly became Official Creepy Old Guy Who Was Never Seen Again.
