Jockstrap History

A jockstrap (also knows as a jock, jock strap, jockey strap, strap, supporter, or athletic supporter) is an undergarment originally designed for supporting the male genitalia during vigorous physical activity including most sports activity.  Today the jockstrap is still utilized for sports activity but has also evolved as fashion jockstraps have become popular.  Fetish jcckstraps tend to be made of different materials such as leather, neoprene, etc.

The earliest jockstrap was manufactured in 1874 and was called the Bike Jockey Strap.  The Bike brand has come and gone over the years and more recently other popular athletic brands have excelled in the market such as the GYM brand.
