Help Mom to advise son on taking care of "those parts&

Ok -- since I don't know any serious male riders and obviously, I have no experience in this, how can I help my 11 yr old son?

He prefers to ride bareback or with a bareback pad. Trouble is, those extra parts he has are being slightly abused. Do any of you guys out there have some advice I can pass on to him? Is there a better riding posture he could use to avoid those crushing moments? Is he perhaps too stiff? Not stiff enough? Would a jock strap help? He has taken a real interest in riding the last few weeks and I don't want him to get discouraged.

My friends and I were talking about how that would hurt for guys... But I really don't have a solution... Hope you find out!! I would hate for that to be a discouragement to him...

Lots and lots of padding is bound to help, at least a little. Not sure if one of those "football cups" would work, or just make it worse. I actually know a few guys that ride, but this particular topic has never come up .. maybe I should ask one day. Heh.

I'm not much help on the crushing issue here...I have noticed that my hubby rides more on his back pockets than I do. Like he leans or tilts his hips back a bit more so he's not squashin' the family jewels. I'd ask him but he has already gone off to work. I'll try to remember to ask when he gets home. Interesting topic sons are 4 & 8 and haven't complained yet....I'm sure they soon will.

I don't ride bareback but sitting correctly/correct posture helps a lot to avoid bouncing and crushing moments
