I've worn a cup ever since I squared some guy in Judo class when we both fell during a throw. You should wear one, but avoid using it as a fulcrum for armbars.

Yup, ever since I got my nuts squashed or kneed a couple times during my very first class.

I wear one because I have always worn one training Kickboxing/Karate so it feels too "Out there" to not wear one in a Gi.

I don't, and haven't really had any problems. Though I'm sure a few bad nut shot experiences would have me shopping for a cup real quick.

I wear a cup because it gives me more leverage when I'm armbarring someone.
That and the avoiding pain in my testicles thing.
I think it'd be pretty inconsiderate to not wear a cup, honestly.
Mostly, I just sit here. Mostly.

Compression shorts. Cups dig into my thighs too much, cause odd sores..... and the "no no baby honest those are from my cup" line just doesn't cut it.
Maybe I should use baby powder....
I don't honestly have any problems. On rare ocassion I'll get racked while doing straight up ground work.
Any time striking involved however I put the cursed thign on.

I do not yet wear a cup grappling. But I'm willing to bet the time will come when I painfully change my mind. Until someone knee-rides my boys, I will remain blissfully ignorant to needing a cup.
Speaking of which.... maybe that's the BJJ nutriding I hear so much about?

Other than a few botched early armbars, not using a cup hasn't really seemed to make a difference for me or my training buddy. Truth be told, I tapped myself out more often than I've ever had anything bad happen.

Find the injurys thread, read about my exp with not wearing a cup. I now wear a cup if I 'think' I might possibly be in a situation where someone might come near my nuts.
