Question Male do you protect your "guy's"

Title basically explains it.
My guy will ride once in a while with me but is only open to walking. He says it's the only gait where he doesn't get knocked around. I put my trainers really comfy western saddle on Caleigh and he said it only saved his "boys" a little bit. A canter is preferred over the trot if he's going for anything faster than a walk however he's not confident to try it off the lunge line.

He is rather stubborn though. He wears loose fitting jeans and loose boxer shorts under them. He can't wear tight fitted underwear or jeans because he feels tied in and claustrophobic. Should I buy a really soft seat saver? Or an athletic cup? Haha. He said he'd be more willing to ride if he didn't get smashed around so much.

Note to be rude or what not, maybe he needs to learn to balance him self better. Get better position in the saddle etc also maybe post in a trot?

This! If a guy is uncomfortable it is because of his position. He needs to sit correctly. And tighter undies will probably help, too.

I have the same problem when wearing loose fitting jeans--and all my insulated winter jeans are loose fitting as I've lost a lot of weight since buying them. I solved it with compression boxers similar to those worn by many athletes. I got them at an athletic sports store.

The problem I suffered wasn't the result of getting pounded into the saddle so a more comfy saddle wouldn't have made any difference. My problem was the general jouncing and bouncing--exactly the same problem marathon runners and many other types of athletes suffer if they participate in sports that cause the body to bounce around alot.

As far as I know the only solution is to bind 'em up close to the body with close fitting clothing so they don't bounce around so much.

Does your guy ever go to the gym? Wear a swimming suit? If so, he wears something to prevent bouncing abuse to his manhood. He needs to wear something similar when riding.

Although my BF doesn't ride....he works out four times a week. He normally just wore regular boxer-breifs to the gym....until he bought a pair of underwear specifically for athletes. He LOVED them. He got them at Wal-Mart. They are even sweat wicking!

Another option I'm considering trying this summer is spandex bicycling shorts, worn as underwear. I used to wear them for cycling back when I was doing century rides and they are REALLY supportive! As I progress to faster riding and/or rougher trails I may give them a try.

I just rode for 4 hours in jeans and boxers, everything is still intact and does not hurt, like I said look at position and does the saddle REALLY fit him? Cause I had a saddle once that no matter my position... OUCH!

I think it would be less of a problem for younger males as the older ones sag a bit more. LOL
