You should definitely wear an athletic supporter anytime you need a protective cup, so sports where you might get hit. But you should also wear an athletic supporter for non contact sports like running to keep from bouncing and twisting.
You should wear an athletic supporter at the very least, personally I would definatly wear a cup too, for added protection, although this is a personal choice and depends on your position.
The "cup" was invented by CF Bennett of Chicago in 1874.
You need some sort of jockstrap or compression short or it will not protect you. A cup must fit tight against the body to work properly. A loose-fitting cup will only slam into the testicles when an impact occurs, which can then cause pain and injury. Even some athletic cup-shorts which are being sold do not hold the cup tight against the body. Just because athletic shorts have a pouch for a cup does not mean that the athletic shorts will hold the cup in place firmly. You can put a cup on without a jockstrap, but not a real good idea unless you wear something over the cup to hold it in place real good against your body. I suppose some guys might want to wear a cup to "enhance" their bulge. If they are not going to be playing sports or working, I suppose that would be okay for them if they just want to "enhance" their male appearance.
fighters dont wear jockstraps they use , specialized underwear that protects the "boys" well and keeps errything in place
Charlton Athletic was the winner of the FA Cup in 1947.
yes, there is no pocket for it, but you can just slide it in, if you know what i mean. it might move a bit if your briefs are too loose though. What may be a better way to keep the cup in place and to provide a soft cotton barrier between your boys and the cup itself is: wear a pair of boxer briefs and then an athletic supporter over them. Place the cup in between the boxer briefs and the supporter. A cup should fit real tight to provide real good protection in sports or work activities. So I assume you want to wear a cup primarily to enhance your appearance -- to give yourself a bigger "bulge" up front. If so you can follow the advice above. Otherwise, you should wear the cup real tight to your body.
Striped shirt, black pants, athletic shoes, eye protection if necessary, and most importantly if you are a male a protective cup with supporter.
