Any overheating and smashing of your balls is doing the world at large a favor, lest you further burden us with any more of your ill-conceived spawn.
That out of the way, i use a Shock-Doctor and compression shorts always.

Are you sure it is the cup causing this shrinkage/fusion ?
It could be the fear of being grappled to death.
Also your description was vivid and it painted a disturbing image in my mind, but also a sound, yes a sound, the sound a dick makes when it is peeled off the scrotum..i could hear you doing it....brrrr..

Overthink much? I don't wear cups. Don't require anybody to. I laugh my ass off if I catch you without one and you get kneed. Seriously, I'll point in laugh my ass off. No mercy. Hell if it's bad enough I'll you tube you rolling around on the ground crying and put it on youtube.
Funniest part of this is that I'm not lying. I'll even do it to the kids because they think they're uncomfortable. They sit there crying and then I tell them "Don't you wish you had it on right now?"
Only reason I should wear a cup is to protect people from accidentally kneeing my iron groin. Last time I was kicked there I think I broke the guys foot. Poor guy.

In Kempo most schools cup and mouth guard are mandatory. I once ripped a cup up with a kick on a fellow and reduced him to a mewling mess on the mat. So I don't think the little jock strap type are worth much.
I usually wear a smaller type, but one night (in Kosho Shorie Ryu Kempo: read the 22 pages of my dull log to get all the details of the last 11 years of pfl history) I happened to be wearing this big thing that I'd been given; it went from between the legs to several inches wide at the thick waist strap - I was told it was a boxer's "cup," though it is 3x the size of a cup. We were doing self defense and Sonya or Tanya or some such variation was an ex-cheerleader @ last 30's, petite blond with plenty well done plastic surgery and fitness freak was my uke. The little cutie had already one night made Shihan's big heavy wife cry with a rear naked - I was aware of her "fighting spirit."
I did the attack and she opened me up and landed a full power front kick, smacking really hard into my crotch with the shin of her shapely little leg. And she had good form. Even with the big cup I was blown away and told her that this was practice and she wasn't supposed to try to crush my maleness, for God's sake, and thanked said God I happened to be wearing Godzilla the cup.

Cups/groin protection are just assumed at my school. They're totally awesome armbar hacks too. Nothing like a big ol extra bulge to use as a fulcrum for your armbar. ;P

Chicks dig it when they can feel your mushy sack on their back.

I don't use one, but I only have one nut left worth protecting so i'll roll the dice.

I wear one of these:
I tie it kinda tight, because a cup is no good if one of your balls is only halfway in and gets crushed by the edge. It was uncomfortable at first, sure, but after it saves you from a few knees, you'll fall in love with it.

Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

Ive been the recepient of a nutshot while rolling but the main reason im getting a Cup is so that i never again have to ask a noob rolling with me to kindly stop +pinching my foreskin+ as he grips my gi pants while attempting to maintain posture\break my guard. I am not looking forwards to that little gem of awkwardness ever again.
