Straps have become hugely popular within the gay community, so you might say that they’re gay underwear icons!
Here’s Our Top 6 Reasons Why Men Wear Jockstraps:-
1. Protection During Sports
The original purpose of jockstraps was to protect men’s crown jewels during high impact activities. They were originally created to protect the balls of Victorian bicycle couriers who were suffering severe crotch trauma from riding on cobbled streets. Sporty males soon realised what a great idea protecting this delicate area was.
The jockstrap is named after it’s popular association with high school jocks who were its most common user for many years. Today, many sportsmen still wear straps and many active males wear them for the great support they offer during general sporting activity.
2. Jockstraps are Incredibly Comfortable
They might not look it, but straps are incredibly supportive and comfortable. The function of the pouch is to create great support, grabbing and holding your genitals. If you get fed up having to discreetly adjust your junk in public places, this could be the underwear for you. The elasticated straps which sit around your bum are soft, comfortable, and can provide a bit of butt lift. Some straight men feel that its popularity with gay men means they can’t wear them.
