These protectors of manhood come in all shapes, sizes, materials, colors, quality, and effectiveness. They have to be safe, high quality and effective. So what makes a cup "good"?
The simple “nut cup”, or athletic cup is a surprisingly complex product. Yes, they all “cover your junk”, and keep the testicles safe, or at least try to. But each sport we play has a unique challenge for protecting the balls.
The proverbial male athlete question. Sounds simple enough. NO means your balls are fully exposed to anything that can (or wants to!) hit you there. Not a great plan! YES means you need a cup.
A traditional groin cup gives you plenty to think about: will it be so uncomfortable; you’ll avoid wearing it? (In many cases, yes.) Will its sheer bulk and weight impede your movements? (Probably.) Will it break? (With some composites, maybe.) Will you be dropping your guard to readjust it over and over? (Very likely.) Will it follow your every move, providing 100% protection whether you are standing, kicking, riding, jumping or wrestling? (No.)
Everyone has seen it. A guy takes a hard hit to the balls in sports and we all groan and think “Wow, I hope he had his cup on”. But what about women?
