Many of who have read my Aneros blog over the years have heard my stories about jocks and cups dating from my puberty and the glory days of adolescence up to my old age. This fascination represents a lifetime of experience and gives me even now the thrill of wearing these quintessentially male items which men and boys wear for athletics and even daily, leisurely wear.
I was eleven or twelve when I encountered my dad’s jockstrap for the first time. Mom had laundered in February or March 1962 and hanged it on a hanger to dry above the bathtub at home. Dad was going to wear it under his Little League navy blue umpire uniform pants when Little League began in late April or May that year. I decided to try it on when it was dry. I was baffled in how to wear it correctly, but I figured its mesh pouch was to contain my privates, but I was mystified that its leg straps gave that “bare ass” feel, so unlike the briefs I wore as my own underwear. However the “bare ass” feel of a jockstrap provides needed ventilation to a guy’s sweaty buttocks on the athletic field. This also applies to a guy wearing a cup jock.
My dad was a modest and a somewhat bashful man. He was devoted to the church as was my mother, and was a prominent lay leader at church. However in the summertime on Little League evenings, he was an exhibitionist when after supper, he would run throughout the house buck naked to go bedroom to don his umpire uniform with jockstrap underneath. His dick would flop about. His was a much larger version of mine. We’re both circumcised, our bulbous glans are a distinctive part of our cock anatomy. I came to realize shortly his jockstrap was doing its job in supporting his genitalia.
My jock consciousness increased not only through his Johnson & Johnson Blue Ribbon Supporter, but also what I saw in Montgomery Wards and Sears catalogs which my parents subscribed. BIKE no. 10 supporter ads were also featured in Boys Life Magazine. In those years, BIKE jocks had that distinctive Bike Wheel logo on the label on jock waistbands. It is said that BIKE jocks were invented in 1874 to support the cock and balls of Bike Jockeys on the bumpy cobbled streets of Boston, MA.
However, the day arrived in early September 1963 when Coach Knox told us boys we had to get an athletic supporter for 7th grade gym class. It was a required part of our gym uniform. So I went to Crutch & MacDonald Drugstore near the town center to purchase a jockstrap. The pharmacist sold me boys size. It was a Johnson & Johnson Coach Athletic Supporter. The box featured a drawing of an naked athlete wearing nothing but a jockstrap. I popped a rockhard boner oozing precum in my chinos. I rushed home and ran to my bedroom to try it on. I had to wear my cock in the twelve o’clock position with my lubing glans scrunched against the waistband. The mesh jock pouch did its job perfectly in supporting my scrotum, but it seemed the mesh pouch was massaging and evening kneading my glans. The jock felt so good that it seemed a sexual awakening for me. Thereafter every chance I had, I tried to recreate the delicious feelings which my jockstrap produced. Sexual touch of my cock led me to me to the masturbatory grip. Six months later I achieved success in my very first ejaculatory orgasm. It happened on a Saturday night before bedtime when it seemed that I was climbing the veritable mount of sexual arousal. My body took over when a veritable tidal wave of sexual pleasure swept over me and I achieving the sweetness of orgasm and ejaculation of cum! The athletic supporter was truly of catalyst of masculine realization!
In Torrington, CT a factory town six miles from my hometown, BIKE jocks and cups were featured in men’s clothing stores and sporting good stores. However I was restricted in my jock and cup purchases while I lived at home. College and beyond, these restrictions were lifted.
However, just after tenth grade in the summertime, I summoned my courage to purchase my first jock and cup unit at the very same pharmacy where I purchased my first jock. It was a Bauer & Black Pro Cup supporter unit. The cup jock had the classic tunnel pouch with a leather closure and two metal snaps. The Pro Cup was actually a classi Bike flat cup with ten ventilation holes and a thick rubber gasket for comfort. The box this jock and cup had a brawny athlete in profile. I received an erotic rush when I purchased it. That was in June 1965.
Two decades later in April 1986 was when I purchased purchased my BIKE CUP no. 85 Supporter Unit men’s medium. Over this span of time, jockstrap brands and models had diversified. Athletic cups by and large remained the flat cup variety and were uncomfortable to wear. Many athletes avoided wearing them. But in the middle 1980’s, some sporting goods manufacturers such as BIKE began producing contoured, banana cups that fit much better the male genital anatomy. There was the Original Banana Cup, followed by Shock Doctor, and finally in 2007, Mark Littell began marketing his visionary Nutty Buddy Cup. Other cups, as mentioned by @goldenboy are the Mueller and the Safetgard Cage Cup.
However, one of the high points of my jock and cup shopping expeditions in my life (which by the way were rare) was one that occurred on a early Thursday afternoon in April 1986 in Torrington, CT. I went to a sporting goods store, Sportsman’s Paradise, which supplied the needs of sports teams in Northwestern Connecticut. I went to the store because I knew it sold BIKE! I went to the store with an erotic frame of mind. Actually I was horned! Jim, the store proprietor, waited on me. He easily sold me a few BIKE jocks. Then I asked him, “Do you sell any jocks with cup ?” He said, “Yes, but we have just gotten into the store, a new BIKE cup which you may like to purchase.” He brought a very large bluish box containing the BIKE CUP Supporter Unit no. 85. He took the cup out of the box. It was HUGE with a strangely contoured, banana shape. It also had a thick gasket. I blushed a deep red. I thought I was going to cream my jeans. I wonder what Jim, the proprietor, must have thought of me. Perhaps he was amused from the smile I saw on his face! Well, I took it home, went to my bedroom, and had to jack off, I was so turned on! That night I wore it to bed for the first time and luxuriated in its feel on my genitals. Needless to say, I brought many more of this cup jock unit in the couple of years it was in production. I was in the mid to late thirties at the time.
No. 1. The elasticity of ordinary jockstrap and cup holders enable guys to gauge and fathom the feel of these items on their genitalia. You can do this while engaging in athletics or wearing such as part of street clothes or as leisure wear at home or at a bar. This sort of meditation is particularly effective in bed at night.
No. 2. Wearing a jockstrap and certainly a cup and jock enhances the feel of the Kegels.
No. 3. Guys into nipple stimulation or diddling will the notice the sexual sweetness that diddling has on their genitals. Guys will notice that a jock and cup enhance and magnify the sexual sweetness located in their cock and balls but also in their sweet spot at the base of their scrotum, cock root, and perineum meet. They may notice that this sexual sweetness leads the PONR where they can achieve a very sweet dalliance without “falling off” into ejaculation.
No. 4. Dressing up your cock in cellophane which I discovered recently or wearing the latex of a condom, and then wearing your dressed up cock in a cup jock directs your sexual sweetness to the sweet spot which I have described in No. 3.
No. 5. The proliferation of jock and cup brands and style enables a guy to do much experimentation.
No. 6. The Aneros cannot be forgotten as it central to even experienced guys. I for one use the Aneros still because its direct massage of my prostate and my anal tract and musculature provides a needed impetus to me as a man. There is a symbiotic connection to the Aneros which I still love and my jocks and cups which enter into most powerfully and sweetly, all of which make me feel young and healthy.
