    Surely most runner go commando, which I find kind of odd. I have a lycra jockstrap in the 80' I used to run in, but then I'm not really a "runner" or track athlete. i have used standard jockstraps for running in for year. They really keep my sac from swinging.

    This seems to be a misunderstanding about jocks that you have put right. The primary purpose of a jockstrap is to keep your BALLS from swinging. it's mostly about that, not about cock control, altho I suppose if you have a 6" flaccid monster it might concern that too, huh?

    i'm usually pretty big when i'm soft and that's exactly what happens to me when i wear underarmor or any compression shorts. it's so uncomfortable. shorts with a liner, a brief, or a jock seems to work well. "swim jocks" are a good choice for running too.

    A jock. I hate those liner things, and always cut them out. They do zero to keep my cock and balls from flopping all over the place when I run.

    I'm in college and run X-C. I wear shorts with and without liners and for both of them I wear boxer briefs. I do this mainly because I am pretty well endowed lol. The boxer briefs provide extra support and help keep down the bulge. I'm not too big on showing off

    I wear compression shorts under my running shorts. Not the most comfortable thing but my doctor told me that the liner is not enough for me.

    jock and shorts without a liner and in the winter: jock, running tights and training pants. the jock is a perfect thing to wear for me, keeps may balls good and tight.

    It depends on the school...I went to two high schools and they had different rules...the first made us at least wear underwear..if you didnt want to wear a jock...
    the second theyre were really no rules but the coach would want u to wear underwear to avoid it flopping around and popping out the legs when u sat down or stretch exercises...

    What brought your doctor to that conclusion?

    I mean, besides size -- but why does it make a difference?

    Last February I went into the doc for a swollen and very sore testicle where I was barely able to sit. While being checked out the doctor asked if I wore for support while exercizing. When I told him that my gf had been nagging me for this (I just thought that she was jealous of my junk flopping around) he said "those boys need more support than only a runner's liner." I have worn compression shorts from that point on and have not had an issue since :mad:
