i’m sure this topic has been discussed many times,
read the above thread on testicular suspension via some jock strap looking thingy, read as many FAQs on riding as i could get my hands on.
i’m like a day old on the unicycle, not made much progress due to the intense ‘sensations’ from my testicular region. i know its been said to tuck them somewhere, or move them out of the way, but i just can’t see how that can happen on a unicycle … unless of course i tilt the seat forwards till i can rest my nuts atop the front portion of the seat or something …
any pointers? this is the only thing keeping me away from making it a whole day learning affair… i have to take a rest after every 4 or 5 attempts else i’d keel over from the ball twisting agony.
The first unicycles were actually known as eunuchcycles and the riders were called eunuchcyclists. They worked for the emperor’s court in ancient China. Later the names got changed to unicycle and unicyclist and the old names got lost to history.

The eunuchcyclists’ job was to please the emperor, in what could be
described as the predecessor of the Chinese State Circus. That’s where
the expression “Are you from the circus?” comes from - unlike the word
eunuchcyclist it survives to the present day. Strangely, most
unicyclists don’t want to be remembered to that honourable period.

A pair of cycling shorts will keep Frankie and the Twins nicely out the way. Once you’ve C’nDed (cupped and dragged) them forward, the chamois insert in the cycling shorts will keep them there for much longer than traditional underwear.
If you’re not wearing underwear (or are wearing boxers) at the moment, I can only imagine the discomfort.
That then also explains why riders have the urge to kick people who ask that question in a particular area of their anatomy.
I’m with Gild on the cycling shorts idea. That’s what I wear. I pull everything up high and to the front and the shorts hold it all in place for a long time. I have to readjust only periodically. If you think the cycling shorts look goofy, wear them under a pair of baggy shorts or your regular pants and no-one will know.
