A 34-year-old member asked:

Can you get sport related injuries in your butt from not wearing jockstrap?

Dr. Bryan Levey
Pediatrics 28 years experience
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.
Dr. Dean Giannone
Internal Medicine 26 years experience
Wrong side.: The jockstrap is for the front, not the back.
