View Full Version : Jockstraps in lockerroms

January 26th, 2010, 02:26 PM
I have always been involved in sports so wearing a jockstrap has been pretty common year round. When I started working out at the YMCA I noticed that no one hardly wears them there. Is this weird for me to wear one still? What do other guys wear?

January 26th, 2010, 03:09 PM
iv never seen sum1 wearing a jockstrap

January 26th, 2010, 03:12 PM
Most guys usually on wear boxers, briefs, boxer/briefs to the gym...

January 26th, 2010, 06:03 PM
yea around here theres no jockstrap as all wear boxers and boxerbriefs or just undies

January 26th, 2010, 06:19 PM
No one around here wears Jockstraps so it's boxers and briefs over here.

January 26th, 2010, 06:37 PM
I wear fairly tight fitting briefs, what are called "slips" over here, so wouldnt really feel the need for anything more supportive for PE

January 26th, 2010, 07:21 PM
Agree with Nick. I wear really tight boxerbriefs. They are in the same type as a jock but just dont look like that but provide the same support. I wear that when Im playing football or surf anything and it does a good job keeping everything together. Oh and more comfortable thana Jock Strap.

i just wear boxers no jock strap for this guy

January 28th, 2010, 11:39 AM
i used to wear one, now i just wear compression shorts (they are so much nicer haha :) )

February 4th, 2010, 11:15 PM
I've never seen some one wearing a Jockstrap, but if its what you like then why not wear it?

February 5th, 2010, 12:13 AM
I wear one at p.e and at the ymca

February 5th, 2010, 12:16 AM
never seen 1 in my life

February 5th, 2010, 01:24 AM
Compression shorts when I work out. Never worn a jock except when I played Baseball and football

February 5th, 2010, 01:37 AM
i just wear boxer briefs

February 5th, 2010, 04:35 PM
Boxer Breifs or Boxers. No jockstrap, never worn one in my life. XD And I havent seen anyone whearing a Jockstrap at our gym. But like someone elce said, what ever you like.

February 5th, 2010, 05:17 PM
i've never seen one in public before :P

February 5th, 2010, 08:49 PM
No, ive never had or seen someone with a Jockstrap...

February 5th, 2010, 10:30 PM
well over hear in the UK we dont really get jockstraps, boxers are cool but if you play alot of sport then they may be a bit uncomfortable, so you can get these really tight boxers, sometimes called compression boxers, i wear them all the time

February 6th, 2010, 03:44 AM
Yeah any high school sports were required to wear jocks. When you have a football or baseball team all changing at the same time, having on a jock isn't that big of deal. In normal PE It's briefs or boxer :Dbriefs.

February 6th, 2010, 04:01 AM
I've never seen anyone with a jock in a gym but you do whatever u feel more comfortable with.

I just wear briefs, but whatever floats your boat, wear what YOU feel comfortable in, thats all thats important

February 6th, 2010, 09:54 AM
its not uncommon, but i wear boxer briefs.

February 11th, 2010, 07:49 PM
i tend to wear compression shorts when workin out

February 14th, 2010, 10:23 PM
working out, just some briefs or boxerbriefs would do just fine. but sports like bball or football, or any rigorous activity of the sort, you should wear a jock. thats what my coach told us. BUT, if you would rather wear still, dont be embarassed.

February 14th, 2010, 11:23 PM
i wear like compression shorts

February 15th, 2010, 02:35 AM
Iv never seen enyone have one unless it's in a sport that needs a cup

February 15th, 2010, 11:57 AM
Dude be proud of your jock it could save your balls one day.

February 15th, 2010, 12:20 PM
its not wierd

February 16th, 2010, 04:03 PM
its not a tradition to wear one to weight lift but if you want to i guess. maybe so a free weight doesnt fall on your ball sac

February 24th, 2010, 05:29 PM
i've actually seen one person in my gym's locker room wear one but thts it. i put on bikini briefs cuz they provide support and don't cover much up

March 3rd, 2010, 05:23 PM
Yeah I noticed that too, one funny thing about that is whenever I wear one people always look at me, I feel like an exhibitionist. Its like nobody has ever seen one.

March 3rd, 2010, 05:36 PM
Don't worry about what other people think. If you like wearing them, go ahead and wear them! I don't care what people think when I wear briefs

March 3rd, 2010, 07:52 PM
We have to wear em for hockey. (just imagine that lil piece of rubber in your boys. owwccchhhh) we all wear comp shorts for underwear, then put our joc over em. we wear the comp short style ones. not the stringy ones. But in HS football we just wear comp shorts for underwear. IDK of anyone who wears a cup in FB. Probly a gd idea to but we dont.

March 3rd, 2010, 08:35 PM
I think u should just wear what you want... I personally like wearing under armour compression shorts, they keep your junk from slidin everywhere and they keep your balls dry... you should look at those if you feel uncomfortable wearing a jock strap.

March 3rd, 2010, 10:09 PM
i haven't seen anyone in the locker rooms wearing a jock strap. think it just depends on what you like.

March 4th, 2010, 12:24 AM
the briefs that every one wears are called compression shorts there way better

March 7th, 2010, 12:56 AM
i wear compression shorts

I just wear briefs. Ive never even seen one before lol, i dont thnk anyone really wears them here.

April 5th, 2010, 09:05 AM
I think the older you get the more people wear jockstraps. In junior high all the guys on the football team wore compression shorts, now more wear jockstraps.

April 5th, 2010, 09:33 AM
I find jockstraps ridiculous, honestly. I suggest briefs.

April 5th, 2010, 01:24 PM
Briefs or compression shorts are FTW. Jock straps, in my opinion, are outdated and not nearly as comfortable. Try compression shorts and see what you think. They keep everything in place but you don't get the weird stares that happen when wearing a jock.

April 5th, 2010, 02:17 PM
I go boxers 100%

April 5th, 2010, 02:32 PM
I go boxers 100%

Don't provide much support though. Unless they are pretty tight, and then they are basically compression shorts anyway.

April 5th, 2010, 06:41 PM
ive never seen a jock at a gym, i dont think its common anymore

April 13th, 2010, 10:10 PM
They are cool but no one wears them anymore.

April 14th, 2010, 05:10 PM
the only ppl I've seen wear a jock are older men at the gym.

April 16th, 2010, 12:19 AM
we have to wear them for baseball, but thats it really. sometimes i wear one when i go running on my own

April 16th, 2010, 05:27 AM
never seen one LOL

April 16th, 2010, 06:17 AM

April 16th, 2010, 08:23 AM

April 16th, 2010, 12:24 PM

April 16th, 2010, 10:45 PM

April 16th, 2010, 10:48 PM
I've never seen a jockstrap on a guy...period.

Maybe it varies by age, region, etc?

April 24th, 2010, 10:18 PM
On the varsity team yeah. But in 7th and 8th grade no.

April 24th, 2010, 10:39 PM

May 27th, 2010, 10:40 PM

May 27th, 2010, 10:44 PM
I've never seen anyone with a jockstrap at my gym but I don't think it's a big deal. Do whatever u feel comfortable with.

May 29th, 2010, 01:00 AM
I would still wear the jock cuz I love jocks but if you feel weird about it you can wear boxers or something over them

May 29th, 2010, 03:04 AM
