Ur butt will sweat -: -with or without a jock strap. It's probably the most common area everyone sweats. Not 3 B concerned. Always shower & dry well, use a wicking underpants daily & use a powder like Gold Bond 2 keep the area dry. If stays moist & does not get some air, it makes U more prone 2 get "jock itch" or other fungal diseases. Do not wear briefs, but boxers, this will help.

No: The purpose of a jock strap is to provide appropriate support and protection for the testicles. Jock straps do not protect the buttocks or anus.

No: Not necessary. Perhaps a weight lifting belt.

Personal preference.: Unless trying to conceive, "tighty whities" or jock strap vs boxers or commando are all personal choice have at it.

No need : If you start to feel tenderness or irritation with or after running, the extra support may help. If not, then it's probably not needed.
