So i can't find a cup but wouldn't some rolled up sock absorb the impact?
If i get kicked without a cup my nuts are toasted but if atleast i have some socks i can walk the next day right?
I punched my nuts with some socks in my underwear and it did hurt less but a kick is much stronger so i am not sure if it would work.

pull them back and close your legs, that way they are at the back.

it's really not any sort of major issue,

You're posting on the internet, but you can't find a cup.
Where did I leave my BS detector?
Ahhh! There it is!

If the sock absorbs the impact from a 16 ounce ball-peen hammer, then you are good. Give it a few good solid hits. Let us know if it works. Might need to try it a few times before you figure out the right amount of socks, so don’t give up. It is imperative that you keep at it.

A sock transfers too much force. You need a water balloon. Which is basically the same as a cup anyway.

Can we please have a rolling eyes reaction?

This can't be legit.

They should be very small socks.

Google "iron balls training" I am in favor of old style body conditioning, but for me, this is a bridge too far.

Just saw this! ..."Can you replace the cup with socks?" If you do, your coffee will spill out all over the floor.

If you use socks for impact absorption you can also use them to impress the ladies. :)
