4 Awkward problems with one solution: The ball hammock

What’s in a name? Well, if you’re talking about the ball hammock… pretty much everything. These undies give your sensitive bits a relaxing pouch that’s like an afternoon siesta in your trousers for all-day support and comfort. 

But despite the slightly silly branding, ball hammock underwear is so much more than a goofy trend. It’s a game-changing underwear design that solves the most common (and awkward!) underwear mishaps. Here are 4 classic skivvy problems that Tommy John’s Hammock Pouch undies can help you avoid completely:

1. Swamp Crotch

Swamp crotch is a painful rash that erupts on your thighs when excess sweat meets broken or irritated skin. Beyond turning even a light stroll into a walking nightmare, it goes hand in hand with a powerful odor that can force people to keep their distance from you. There are plenty of powders and ointments that can treat swamp crotch once it’s in full swing, but isn’t prevention the best medicine?

The hammock pouch is worth a pound of cure when it comes to long days and hot summers. The Air Mesh pouch is designed to keep you cool and dry, and the moisture-wicking fabric can stave off irritating, odor-causing microbes. And of course, it will prevent visible crotch sweat from soaking through to your outerwear (an embarrassing visual that no one should have to endure). Once you try it, you won’t want to leave the house without it. 

2. Batwing

Leather seats are the worst in the summertime. As soon as you start sweating, you have to peel your skin off the chair every time you move. Unfortunately, that same phenomenon can happen in your underpants, and it’s common enough to have earned its own name—batwing. This is much more than just a nuisance—it can be downright painful. When your skin is stuck to your leg, every move you make adds tension and friction to the most sensitive part of your body.

The hammock pouch makes short work of batwing by lifting everything off your legs and putting an extra layer of smooth, clean, dry fabric between them. In other words, this pouch is designed to keep your bats in the cave where they belong until nightfall. 

3. The not-so-subtle adjustments 

If you think you can reach into your crotch to shift things around without anyone noticing, we’ve got news for you: you’re not as slick as you think. When you’re trying to carry on a casual conversation with someone, the last thing you want to think about is what’s going on in their underwear. (And vice versa.) Fortunately for everyone, our Hammock pouch undies are truly adjustment-free. 

Not only will these skivvies keep you from getting tangled, but they’re also wedgie-resistant and plumber-crack-proof. The non-rolling waistband stays put throughout the day whenever you bend, or move, and the form-fitting fabric is designed to stretch where you need it to and stay in place no matter what you’re doing. So put on your underwear and forget about it. The only time they’ll cross your mind is when you’re pondering how damn comfortable they are. 

4. Aftershock 

There’s no subtle way to put this: Bouncing hurts your balls. If you’re one to take the stairs or move around all day, or if you spend a lot of time in the gym, the bouncing can leave you seriously sore.

The hammock pouch is the underwear equivalent of a sports bra - designed to keep your junk in place so it won’t bounce every time you do. This added support can spare you a lot of pain after your workout, but it can also enhance your comfort throughout the day. That means you can skip the elevator and get some extra steps in whenever the opportunity arrives. Be as active as you like; we’ve got you covered.
