How many young British men wear jockstraps?

we were forced to wear a jock for rugby and cricket at my boarding school in the 80's. i loved it.

is part of a discussion in the Underwear, Clothing, and Appearance Issues forum that includes topics on What to wear (to show or not to show), what's comfortable, what's not....

I wear them for gym and running.

I'm 47 now but have done since I was 19 or so.

No problem

I have always been a boxers guy, but have always been curious about jockstraps. So I recently invested in one and have been using it while I work out and its pretty comfortable, I like it. Can't say I've EVER seen any other guys wearing one or changing into one in the locker room. Seen a few go commando and changing out of there underwear before going to the gym, but never wearing a jock. I plan to continue wearing mine! :)

Okay....the idea that jock straps are uniquely American due to repression is akin to suggesting that straight Brits and European men are not aroused by sexy lingerie...is that also uniquely American?

Never, during PE at school we weren't allowed to wear boxers we had to wear Y fronts or briefs but I think that was for legal/insurance reasons to protect the school in case any of us got testicular torsion. I've always assumed that jock straps were an American thing.

There must be a few Brits into them - if you're down Piccadilly Circus way have a look in here to see who's buying:

The ones from Lillywhites are crap (Certanaly the Lonsdale and Slazenger ones), also knowing where they get them all from, Reydon Sports Wholesale, in Lenton, Nottingham.

Get much better choice going on line, and trying places like Wyzman, or Skiviez (Postage rates at both places for International orders are good).

At school I used to wear a jock for rugby and a box for cricket, and that was years ago. I wear a jock now sometimes and I'm far from young.

I've seen odd ones at gym but not on anyone under 30,
school we were told to have a change of underwear for after sport or wear a jock for sports or go commando, all for health/hygiene.
I sell them, and it's usually runners/athletes who buy them for support and cricketers/fighters for protection, that does tend to be across all ages but primarily over 30's at a guess

Never seen anybody in Australia use one (apart from cam4).

We were advised to wear a jock for rugby, in school. Not for football, though. We wore a box for cricket. I think it depends on what sports your school did. The more heavier contact the sport was, the more we were advised to wear a jock.

Rugby players in the UK wear jocks, or fully supported compression shorts. Keeps your junk squashed up and away from rogue studs and your balls safe from getting ripped off, as much as possible. I don't think that it's an American thing, per se - more like common sense as far as safety goes. But, it's definitely an American influenced idea.

At my school (40-odd years ago) I never saw a jock - we were made to do PE and games (football, hockey, cricket, tennis) with nothing under our shorts. I think the PE master once recommended buying a jock for support when we reached the age where things were starting to grow, but most of us used to change into our bathing trunks instead (in those days, there was only the 'speedo' style!) and than back into ordinary underwear after the showers.

I'm not a gym person, but I do like jocks, and now have loads. A good source is Jockstrap Central.

Circumcised - and proud

jockstrap for rugby at boarding school, jock with a cup for hokey.

tried wearing compression shorts at rugby when older and just always riding up my arse giving me a wedgie!

at the gym nothing worse than a guy that has worked out, has a shower then puts on the same pair of undies
