Can you put a cup on without a jockstrap?

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.

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.
