A jockstrap is better in my opinion, but it really depends on what sport you're going to be doing. I like jocks just because there is a lot more freedom and it's cooler. I'm 19, and prefer jocks in almost every sport.

jockstrap, it protects and get the job done.ANSWER 2: WHICH MAKES SENSEJockstraps are exposing, uncomfortable, chafe easily, and are otherwise obsolete.

When playing lacrosse should you wear your jock and cup over or under your compression shorts?

I wear my jock and cup over my compression shorts. My compression shorts have a contour pouch that keeps my junk contained, so it stays under the cup. The above answer is totally incorrect! You should wear your compression shorts over your cup-jockstrap so that the compression shorts hold your cup tight against your body! If you wear your cup over your compression shorts, your cup might not fit tight to your body and a blow there could just slam the cup against your testicles, causing pain and possible injury. Some cup-jockstraps do not hold the cup firmly in place against the body.
