    The material is more important. You want moisture wicking underwear or running pants with a liner.

    I typically use the running pants and go with no underwear but lately I wear Moisture wicking briefs or boxer briefs.

    I use compression shorts for running. Underarmour, Nike work great. Jockey Life is less expensive and a little thin but work well also.

    Most high quality running shorts have built in briefs that keep ur balls supported, dry, and un chafed

    When trying to run is when my biggest problems crop up.

    A jock strap gives me the best support I've found, but I have large balls and don't much care for the crushing compression of my current pairs. Anything looser, though, and they bounce around and hurt. Still looking for something that supports, rather than crushes.

    What, on you, ends up hurting?

    Some running shorts have a liner. Besides that I'd recommend a jock in a moisture wicking fabric (ie - not cotton).

    Don't know how far you're running but for me, anything 6 miles or less and go with compression shorts... Anything more then that, I switch over to a jock strap. Just make sure you use some body glide or something on the inside of your thighs or you will probably chafe (sp?) pretty good...

    Because i have bigger considerations that my dick during sports, I rock the underarmour pro-X compression core shorts, to hold me in at the hip since I had a labrendectomy in the hip cartilage.

    Most of my running shorts have a liner that holds everything still and keeps it comfortable. I would recommend a good running shorts with a liner.

    If I am exercising, or not wearing my running shorts, I like my Underarmor underwear.

    I either wear underarmour compression boxer brief or Jockey ones. I have only run up to 7 miles though.

    Many of the major sporting good manufacturers, and especially ones who specialize in running like Brooks and New Balance make specialty underwear for running. I used to love Brooks Runderwear, which has been replaced by these, apparently: Amazon.com: Brooks Men's Equilibrium Brief: Clothing but there's no shortage of other choices. If you look at this listing on Amazon, a number of competing selections are shown.

    Depending on the weather, Might be commando under running tights or under some sort of bike/ compression short. With the occasional C ring thrown in, just for added effect!

    I sell run wear and i'd say the options are tights/'lycra' running shorts and go commando, underarmour style underwear but make sure as other guys say that it is designed to wick away the moisture,and this is usually whats built into run shorts-but don't wear regular briefs under them, as i have known some guys do, it's like wearing 1000mile socks with bed socks under them.
