THE JOCKSTRAP

DNA Magazine - - THE USA ISSUE -

The fact that the jockstrap was in­vented in Amer­ica is prob­a­bly the last thing on your mind when you’re wear­ing one or get­ting fucked in one.

Launched in 1874 by Chicago sports com­pany, Sharp & Smith, the jockstrap was orig­i­nally de­signed to help bi­cy­cle-rid­ing mes­sen­gers avoid ball-crush­ing catas­tro­phes in the course of their daily er­rands.

To­day the gar­ment is tech­ni­cally used to “sup­port the male gen­i­talia dur­ing cycling, con­tact sports or other vig­or­ous ac­tiv­ity”. But you could also say that In­sta­gram is, tech­ni­cally, an app for shar­ing art­ful pho­tos on­line, not nudes in DMs. Tech­ni­cally.

In gay land, the jockstrap has be­come a main­stay of fetish, un­der­wear and dance par­ties the world over. Thank you for your con­tri­bu­tion to our com­mu­nity, Amer­ica. Our butts couldn’t look this good with­out you.
