Why Do Gay Men Love Jockstraps?
If you're a gay man who hasn't been living under a rock, you'll know that the jockstrap is an extremely common style of underwear. Gay guys all around the world wear and love jockstraps on a daily basis, for many different reasons - we're going to take a look at some of the most common reasons gay (and straight) guy's love jockstraps, but first - lets find out what jockstraps are even for!
WHATS THE PURPOSE OF A JOCKSTRAP?
Jockstraps were initially invented back in the 1800's for cycling. Their ergonomic and functional design made the ideal undergarment for those partaking in sports or other exersions. Of course, the gay community - particularly the fetish community, adopted the jockstrap as a type of 'sexy underwear' and fetish accessory. The jockstrap is thought of as lingerie for gay men.
SO, WHY DO US GAYS LOVE JOCKS SO MUCH?
Gone are the days we're pulling our briefs from the side of our balls, or even worse - out of our ass. No longer do we need to accept the fact that boxers can sometimes ride up during a gym workout.
Jockstraps are unrestrictive due to their comfortable elastic straps, which keep the pouch exactly where it needs to be with no need for too much fabric. This is one of the reasons they're used for sports, they are perfect for avoiding sticking and chafing during exercise.
- ASSET ENHANCEMENT
The elastic straps on the jockstrap help to keep your ass perked and peachy. A lot of gay men wear a jockstrap to enhance what they already have to give a more fuller, sexy look.
Make no mistake, jockstraps aren't just great bulge-boosters. They frame your bum perfectly, giving you a natural-yet-generous lift. So if you're looking to perfect your peach, a jockstrap is the way go.
- CONFIDENCE BOOST
Thanks to the enhancing features mentioned in point two, a lot of gay men turn to jockstraps to help give them that extra boost of confidence. Men look great in jockstraps thanks to their contribution towards a perky bum and full pouch.
In this day and age, in the wake of social media - it can become very easy to feel "not good enough" when we're looking at hot guys with perfect bodies on Twitter all the time. The truth is we could all benefit from a little confidence boost couldn't we? Jockstraps can definitely provide that.
- SEX APPEAL
One of the biggest, and my personal favourite - is sex appeal. Jockstraps are like lingerie for gay men. Showing enough skin to tempt your lover, whilst keeping a little bit hidden ready for the big reveal.
Jockstraps are actually a huge fetish for some guys, unsurprisingly too. Some couples/singles actively use jockstraps as more of a sex-aid instead of a fashion accessory. This is, of course - thanks to their barely-covering qualities, who doesn't love a guy in a jockstrap?
- WIDE CHOICE OF BRANDS
Thankfully, jocks are no longer a sports-only kind of style. Underwear brands all across the world are adopting the jockstrap, gay and straight brands alike. They're so popular in fact, even big fashion houses like Versace have a range of jocks.
There's so many amazing brands to choose from, guaranteeing you'll find a jockstrap perfect for you - and i'll bet it'll be the first of many.
