you don't have to but you should
Boys can wear a jockstrap to hold a protective cup in place, which protects you from a direct hit in the genitals. Or, a boy can wear a jockstrap just for support, to keep everything from bouncing and moving while he runs or works out.
Most NFL players wear a jockstrap, and some wear a cup
A cup is the hard protective cover you wear to protect against impact. A jockstrap can be used to hold the cup in place, or worn to support the genitals during sports.
You should wear a jockstrap with a cup for contact sports such as football, baseball, hockey, etc. But it's important to wear a jockstrap for support for anything involving running, jumping, or twisting - even without direct hits - track, basketball, soccer, etc.
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.
Most swimmers just wear Speedo or Speedo-like swimming suits. Some swimmers wear a "swimmers jockstrap" too. A "swimmers jockstrap" has a narrow 1-inch waist-band, which is smaller than the standard 3-inch waist-band of a standard jockstrap. The narrower 1-inch waistband will not reveal the jockstrap as much and the jockstrap waist-band will stay under the swimming suit. However, male swimmers who want to show a bigger "package" may chose to wear a cup-jockstrap under their swimming suit to enhance their masculine appearance. But they don't really need the protection of a cup when they are swimming. So it is all a mater of personal preference.
No, it is not. A jockstrap is a protective device for the genitals.
Only if your doing contact sports like baseball, hockey or football
fighters dont wear jockstraps they use , specialized underwear that protects the "boys" well and keeps errything in place
To protect your male testicles from injury.A jockstrap will support your testicles and your penis so they do not move around a lot when you are playing sports or when you are working. A "cup-jockstrap" is worn by guys when they play sports or when they are doing construction work. The "cup" is made of hard plastic and is made to protect the testicles and the penis. (There are some cups which are made of hard metal.) The "cup" fits into a jockstrap that has a "pouch" made into it to hold the cup in place.Some guys like to wear a jockstrap or a cup-jockstrap because it feels real good on them, or because they think it makes them look better. There are many different kinds of jockstraps and cups (or brands of), and some guys like to wear jockstraps or cups all the time, even when they are not playing sports or working.

Yes, I am a diver and believe me YOU NEED A CUP. Especially if you are a beginner you are going to need protection for your testicles. The best way to wear it is if you wear a speedo wear two speedos and put the cup inbetween. If you wear a jammer, first put on a speedo, then put on a jockstrap and put the cup inbetween. Then just put your jammer on over it. If you really don't care what you look like than put on compression shorts then a cup the the jammer and on the outside put on a jockstrap. The cup that I like best is the Nutty Buddy it protects and supports your balls.
It's a personal preference, but I definitely would wear a cup--so a jock is needed for that, if nothing else. Yes! I play rugby and always were a jockstrap and most of the time I wear a cup. It keeps our "junk" protected and in place.
If there's a chance of getting hit in the testicles, boys should wear a jockstrap and cup, regardless of age. Boys should also wear one for support when running or working out, especially once puberty starts and they start developing more.
A cup wouldn't be needed for track. A jockstrap would be a good idea though, as it keeps your genitals in place while you run.
i am 13 and I play baseball and wear a protective cup. over the years I have been experimenting with different ways to make the cup less visible because it can be embarrassing sometimes. I would suggest first wearing a jockstrap with a cup underneath it and NOT in the pouch. it will still stay in and function properly but not be very visible. the second suggestion is to wear black baseball pants. the darker the less visible it gets. better yet, do both. I wear a jockstrap and black pants and you can`t tell that I am wearing a cup, even when you are close. it is totally normal to wear a jockstrap and it has more comfort and protection. hope this helps!
A jockstrap is what holds the cup (plastic shell to protect your twig and berries) in place over your crotch.
This is completely up to you. If you wear boxers, normally you will put the jockstrap over the boxer or boxer brief. If you wear briefs you can wear it over or under. Anything smaller than that you might try wearing it under. Or you can just wear it as itself. It's a personal preference. I do not wear underwear with a jockstrap.
Some jockstraps have a pouch with an opening at top; the cup is supposed to go into the pouch through that opening. You wear the cup with the narrow end pointing down. If your jockstrap doesn't have a pouch with an opening like that, but just has a simple pouch, wear the cup inside the pouch directly against your skin (again, narrow end down). If you have a lot of pubic hair, you might find that you prefer to trim a bit to prevent the cup from rubbing or pulling hair.
