Hahahahha!!!! Kitten, I just pictured a bunch of men running around with their cups on the outside of their pants!!! Now that would be quite a sight!!
They are worn under the pants. Thankfully.
I gave my close contact flat seat jumping saddle (Beval) to a guy friend of mine. He was starting to get into the jumpers and was having kinda' the same issue. The saddle change, and a few more lessons under his belt, and he had the whole em... well... twig and berries issue worked out.
This was a great read. You all are too much!
