OK, here's a question

This may not be the right target audience, but can someone explain the point of jock-straps to me? That is to say I can vaguely see that there may have been a point in prehistory, but since the invention of better fabrics we have what I refer to as 'magic internet running pants' e.g. http://www.needundies.com/mens-briefs/jockey-sport-microfibre-active-2-pack-brief.html (so called because I have never seen them in shops), which are essentially pants made of the sort of materials that running tights are made of, why would you want one of these strange contraptions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jockstrap ?
