How do you where a jockstrap?

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 (American) football, I would recommend wearing a cup to protect your "boys". If you are riding a bike, I would recommend wearing a jockstrap with a soft cup.
