I have never bought an official suspensory, BUT.... When I spend too much time watching porn or in porn chat, my balls get soo sore I can't stand the pain - the "blue balls" problem. Apparently, most guys who get blue balls, don't have really strong pain. I am different. I have found that using a long cotton cloth, about 9 -12 inches wide, and letting my balls be suspended in the cloth as I wrap it around my body to let my balls rest with no hanging weight and no restrictions like in a suspensory. It is my only relief. If I jerked off, it would end the pain, but the pain in my balls as I am jerking off, is unbearable. So I just have to rest and wait a few hours until the blue balls go away while I am in my home-made ball hammock.
