    So, a while back I bought a Calvin Klein thong, don't ask me why, and it doesn't do a very good job in the front. I was thinking about getting a jockstrap BUT, I am super skinny. Do they make jockstraps with small waists, and larger pouches? Also, if you could recommend any brands etc. that would be awesome!

    If you aren't wanting it for serious support for sport, get into Macy's and check out a few - you may even be able to try a couple before you buy? (Or you could go across to Marshalls on Nth Michigan and buy a few bargain-priced ones, and have fun trying them on at home!)

    I am sure there are others but check out "Bike" jockstraps. Had my first one in grade 9 and have never had a better one. btw, at 25 I am still a 28" waist.

    i always liked bike brand jocks, especially the swimmer's jock, which is good for thinner guys in small size. they're getting harder to find around here, tho

    Do jocks have anything significantly different about them than regular under, minus the fact that I can be pounded whilst keeping them on.

    Look at the International Jock web site. They sell hundreds of them. My wife gets me very nice jocks from them as she like to see my package in them.

    In general, they provide far better support.

    From the time I was in seventh grade, we were required to use them in physical education. I continued to use them through college. Thus, it seems strange to me that many men now are not familiar with them. They used to be available at sporting goods stores and pharmacies.

    There are different types of athletic supporters. Some have a pouch made from the same material as the waist band; they are less comfortable. The better ones have a pouch made from a softer and more comfortable material than the waist band.

    The ones for swimmers have a narrower waist band so that they won't show. The others have a wider waistband.

    There are some designed to accept a plastic cup (at one time they used aluminium cups); they are intended for use in sports in which one might accidentally be kneed in the groin, which can cause significant discomfort.

    From posts on this sight, it seems that athletic supporters are less common than they once were and that many people now know little or nothing about them.

    Yes, to turn me the fuck on! That is their purpose. The first person to make one of those things knew exactly what he was doing...

    I mean they are hot. they serve a purpose too though. I guess they are just specifically masculine and a lot of gay men find them hot because of this.

    I find the good ones have much bigger pouches - go for a bike and post some pics.

    It really makes me sad that jocks aren't that common any more. They were a rite of passage for me and many other guys. (See the homepage of AllKink's Jockstrap Locker Room :: Men in Jockstraps for an eloquent account of what jockstraps mean.)

    Tho' I'm a big jockfan, i do think it's true that some of the better sports briefs support your balls just as much: Cin2 makes a sports briefs that's fantastic.
    Meanwhile, get a Bike jockstrap. They're still the best, even tho' theyre madein fucking CHINA now, not in America, as they should be.

    I have a lot of jocks and I find the Duke and Champion brands have roomier pouches for many of us guys on this site. Bike makes a great jock but I have found that the newer styles of bike jocks run kind of small and sometimes feel better when you buy a size up. That is personal preference on how tight you like the jock to be on your package.

    I will say the Duke jocks have the biggest pouches I have come across. They're also made in the USA! To get an idea of the many different brands and styles of jockstraps check out the Real Guys Wearing Jocks blog.

    Would anyone know where I could find a Champion jockstrap? I've seen a bunch of guys wearing them, but I cannot find them online. Suggestions?
    For those curious which one I'm talking about google Champion U483

    My story isn't much different from this. Most jocks always seemed poorly made, and there were different problems with different ones. Bike was almost always the best. Eventually, I settled on a particular Bike model that I had to downsize to get decent support from without pulling the thing halfway up to my tits - and I'm on the bigger side of average. But, it was comfortable and did the job. I got fixed (vasectomy) in 2003, and the doc had me buy a couple of fresh jocks - and I found them easily at Target or Wal-Mart.

    I've taken up riding on tubes behind a boat, and my boys have been taking a beating. I decided to look for a new swim jock and try it. The only retail available non cup jock in town is a swim run jock at Sports Authority, and the online reviews say it is Chinese junk.

    The jock does seem to be at a low ebb in the sports world. Of all things, I get great support from JC Penny Stafford bikini stretch briefs. Very comfortable, and my current go to when I am looking for more support. Also great for bike riding, keeps me from riding on my balls.
