    OK, now that makes more sense. LOL

     

     

    That my friend is not a "fancy jock strap", that is your uniform for your upcoming audition as a male exotic dancer.

      We did wear jock straps when I was running track in college.  No liners in the shorts.

       

      At one meet, I was warming up a minute before I was up for the high jump when "snap" - it broke, leaving me unsupported.  Plus short shorts and high jumping: a whole new visual for "fosbury flop".  So I grabbed some athletic tape, ducked into an equipment shed, and taped up the jock.

       

      After that, I'm not too sympathetic to those who cry about the pain of taking a little bandaid off their hairy nipples.

        LOL... I would say we need a picture, but I'm not sure I want to see it. Big grin

         

        There are pics someplace.  Wore it to a black & white party.  The objective was for everyone to wear all black, all white, or a combination of the two...  So we got good and drunk and showed up in our best black cowboy boots and jockstraps.  Apparently the goal was for suits/tuxedos.

         

        Needless to say, we were asked to leave.

        Something witty

                  Hmm, this thread is not getting much traffic....

                   

                  Yeah that is totally old school.

                  I am reminded of JHS & HS gym class when they were mandatory, but no one wanted to wear them. The coaches would actually do a "jock check" periodically - we would have to line up like a military inspection, and you would have to pull out one of the straps from under your shorts to show you were wearing it. Pretty creepy in hindsight.

                   

                  When I played HS football, an athletic supporter with hard cup insert was required.  During practice guys would sneak up and do a "nut cup check", knock on the cup.  If you had the cup on, it made a knocking noise.  If not, you doubled over in pain.  Very creepy in hindsight.

                    ....I was unaware jockstraps were no longer worn.... hahahaha. Shows how much I know. Thought that they were the equivilent of sports bras for men, and was unaware there was an alternative to wearing one. Thought men wore compression shorts under regular shorts for the same reason I do...preventing inner thigh  chafing. Never thought about it, guess I assumed they had jock straps underneath LOL!!! Now I know....

                      I wear both. I know an x-ray tech who used to talk about older patients who hadn't worn jocks in their younger days.

                              I thought of a use for a jock strap just a few weeks ago, was wearing compression shorts on the bike and I sat wrong and squashed my nuts and there is nowhere for them to go and your on the bike not pleasant.
