This is why I never leave the house without wearing a cup. You never know what’s going to be airborne when you’re just trying to survive the afternoon. Even if you get lucky and meet a nice young girl who’s trying to slap pelvises, all you have to do is take it off and explain yourself. “No, it’s not weird that I always wear a cup. Everyone does it. Ask around.” It’s smooth sailing. Mostly because there’s no way any sane individual will ask around whether or not people actually wear athletic cups as a fashion item. And if she does, then you know to run. No matter what happens, you win.
