Yes, it's important for men and boys to wear tight underwear so that their penis and testicles are supported. There is a risk of testicular torsion if things bounce around too much.

How do you wear compression shorts?

You wear compression shorts like boxer-briefs under soccer kits ect. They are comfortable to wear but kind of like tight underwear. The nylon- lycra type are comfortable to wear. Compression shorts are tight but not too tight, and are very comfortable to wear. I would not recommend wearing any underwear under them. Some are designed to use a "cup" for certain sports. They are fine just the way they are, even for non-sports reasons. They can be worn as underwear most of the time.
