How do you wear a jock cup?
BELOW IS THE «KINDERGARTEN» VERSION OF How to Wear a Jock While
it is reasonably accurate as far as it goes, it (a) shows a faulty
understanding of how a CUP works, and (b) omits critical
information. Wearing a CUP without proper support (containment)
underneath is foolhardy and begging at best a chafed scrotum, and
at worst a destroyed testicle or two. PLEASE! Before someone gets
in trouble, they should read my original, concise and COMPLETE
Hold the jock in front of you so the waistband is horizontal, like a brief. The pouch should be in front and the leg straps should be on either side. Like a brief, step into the jock with one leg on either side of the pouch. The leg straps should go behind your legs and the waistband, of course, should go around your waist. Also, if you're wearing a jock cup make sure you use the jock straps that are specially made for the cup.
Regular jock straps just have a pouch in front to hold your penis and testicles. It's just one layer of stretchy cloth that's there to give you support.
The jockstraps made for cups have a special pouch that the jock cup slides into, and they usually have velcro or elastic at the top to hold the cup in. It's kind of like a "sock" that the cup fits into, and the cup is surrounded by cloth on all sides.
Sometimes a guy might think that it's ok to just wear his jock cup inside a regular jock strap, but this is not a good idea. First of all this is not too higenic, because wearing the cup up against your skin means that sweat will collect between your skin and the plastic of the cup. And this could give you a nasty case of jock-itch. If you've never had jock-itch, think of athlete's foot on your penis and scrotum. The fungus that causes jock-itch is almost the same as the one that causes athlete's foot. The special cup jockstraps keep cloth between you and the cup, and this helps wick away the sweat.
And the other thing is that you are not getting as much protection if you wear the cup inside a regular jock. That's because your testicles will be sitting right up against the inside of the cup. So if you get hit in the groin, the shock will carry right through the cup to your testicles. If you wore the cup inside the intended cup jockstrap, then the cloth across the inside of the cup would have held your penis and testicles back from the cup, so they weren't sitting up against it. That helps hold them away from the shock of any impact.
So make sure you wear the right kind of strap when you wear your jock cup!
Your "junk" goes in the pouch and your legs go between the legstraps and the pouch. Pull it up and you're set. And the label faces out in front. Don't wear with the label facing in because it's uncomfortable.
In the briefs Cups are made to be worn in the jock they come with, put the cup in the jock pouch then that should be the first thing you wear, so against the skin...A few cups now have brief type supporters, I like these best. The Orignal Banana Cup comes in one and its very comfortable, I think i got it at lockergear.com My hockey jock says to make sure you wear a jock…
It kind of depends. Different men wear jockstraps differently. Most often, the jockstrap replaces underwear entirely--one option. This is what I'd recommend in general. If you are wearing a hard cup, e.g. in baseball, then usually you wear the jock outside your sliding shorts. But a lot of sliding shorts have a cup pouch built in, making a jock unnecessary. In hockey, if the cup pouch isn't built in, the jock can go outside. I…
I wear my jock and cup over my compression shorts. My compression shorts have a contour pouch that keeps my junk contained, so it stays under the cup. The above answer is totally incorrect! You should wear your compression shorts over your cup-jockstrap so that the compression shorts hold your cup tight against your body! If you wear your cup over your compression shorts, your cup might not fit tight to your body and a…
The cup is inserted in a pouch in a jock that is designed to hold it. The cup can also be used in compression shorts designed with a cup pouch. Some men simply insert the cup under a regular jock or compression shorts that do not have a cup insert, however this can be dangerous. If a testicle gets under the rim of the cup during play (outside the inside protected area) and you are…
Not usually. Usually when you have a jock on, you don't wear anything else with it, just your athletic gear on top of it. However, if you are wearing compression shorts, sliding shorts, hockey shorts, etc., you should wear those over the jock. Some people (inexplicably) wear a jock under a swimsuit, too. If you're wearing the jock for running or track, you just wear your normal shorts over the jock, no underwear. You can…
Usually a jock strap (with no cup), or underwear, or both. ________________________________________________________________ I believe you are only supposed to wear compression shorts. Those are the shorts that are very tight and insulated so you don't sweat so much. At my school you are not allowed to wear a cup because it could really harm the other wrestler.
There are only two sizes of jock cups. Youth and Adult. If you need a larger size cup you can buy a nutty buddy cup, the nutty buddy cup is worn differently than a regular cup. first you would put on a pair of briefs or underwear and then a jockstrap over top of that. The nutty buddy cup is put inside the jock pouch but over the briefs.
Your 11 yr old son says the other boys don't wear a cup playing tackle football so he doesn't want to either. Can anyone explain why or why not a cup should be used?
Both could wear jocks, however the cup is more complex: Bull Riders: No. The cup would not help, and due to the angle that the bull would hit the cup, it could be more painful. Rodeo Clowns: Yes, many to wear cups. Bull riders would only get hurt in their sensitive area after they are thrown from the bull and if one of the bull's hoofs would come right down on their sensitive area. This…
You wear it the same as your underwear against your bare skin with the cup pocket facing you you can also either wear it by itself or under a pair of underwear? As an athletic, I have worn a jockstrap while running, weightlifting, playing basketball and etc. but I am no expert. I never wear underwear over my jockstrap. The jock gives you much needed support. If you are playing a sport like baseball or…
