I go to Adam4Adam all the time and see these profiles where the guy says he is a "jock". So does this mean he runs marathons all the time or he just wishes he was a jock? What activities qualify one as being a "jock"? Like does going to the gym 7 days a week for an hour qualify as being a jock even though half of that time you are in the steam room getting blown?
Usually means that the C on their keyboard types a J
If you regularly say "dude" or "bro", you're a jock.
He's a flimsy piece of fabric that wraps around dick.
You aren't really a jock if you 1) don't play hoops at least once a month; 2) don't lift weights (even golfers and tennis players do now); 3) watch ESPN about every day; and 4) know how to throw a football properly.
If you watch Bravo or Lifetime or listen to Lady Gaga, you are NOT a jock.
It means he's not that childish epithet.
"Jock" is code for "manly on the streets, bottom in the sheets"
Don't bring it up on the DL. You will be attacked. The "J" word is indeed a four letter word here.
[quote]know how to throw a football properly.
There you go picking on Tim Tebow again just because he can't get the football to go where it's supposed to go. He's still learning to be a jock.
When someone on a gay site says jock they often mean it differently than the mainstream widespread understanding. So many gay guys claim to be jock, yet they can't tell you which teams are in the NBA Conference finals, or, they haven't shot hoots in years or thrown a football. A lot of gay guys have a very unusual definition of jock.
They're saying they're straight acting.
I don't consider myself a jock but I get jock itch from exercising.

There is a lot of truth to that. A lot of gay guys mean the word jock just in the sense that they are athletic and like to work out/be active on a regular basis. Not that complicated really.
Mom always said if you can't be an athlete, than be an athletic supporter.
Jock really is effete with a bit of butch affect.
And a lot of gay dudes mistake the word jock with fit or muscular. Also, most people don't think you're a jock if your only sports activity is lifting weights or running/jogging.
In reality, it doesn't mean anything but will impress the gullible.
Here's a thought for you really fit dudes.
I'm glad you've got a fit, buff, rockin' bod. Really I am.
But there's nothing more boring than hearing about committed you are to your workout. And the details of your workout. And your diet. I don't ever need to hear about how hard you work to look this good.
Imagine a beautiful straight girl who thought it was delightful to regale her dates with details of her makeup, her fashion choices, her change in hairstyle, etc. She'd bore men beyond endurance, no matter how hot she was.
Look great. Enjoy the attention. And shut the fuck up.
But most fit muscular bisexual and gay jocks are only into other fit muscular jocks, so they would tend to like talking about working out, fitness, diet, supplements, and bicep size.
"Jock" - Somebody who's too good for you, and wouldn't give you the time of day.
If you mince around and lisp, you don't have to ask. That is why 'mos aren't jocks
Has a fungal infection
It means a spandex caftan
It usually means they are very old themselves or are trying to attriact the very old. See also Hot, Stud, Straight Acting,
It means someone who wears a ballcap and athletic shoes.
"Jock" means they're athletic enough to put their feet on the ceiling OR the wall the minute you both hit the mattress.
It means the guy listens to "Car Talk" on NPR.
it means they wear a baseball cap and think they look all athletic.
I find it means "I used to be an athlete in school, but I've let my body go." People who still work hard on their bodies describe themselves as "athletic" which means they work out but don't play sports.
R10 gets it. I love a guy that doesn't act effeminate. Can't stand the limp wrist, or the whiny girly voice. I love jocks.
They like taking care of themselves enough to run, lift weights or play sports in their spare time. Usually paired with formerly being on a sports team and having some athletic experience. You could ask a jock about your workout routine, and they would be interested enough to give you pointers and listen to you without getting too bored. Jocks also tend to be weight conscious.
It means the same thing it does with straight guys - a lot of wishful thinking about how athletic they are but if anything they just watch sports.
Like most things in life you find that people who feel compelled to state what otherwise would be obvious do so because it usually isn't true.
r31, many dudes who work out also currently play sports. A huge number of people lifting weights also shoot hoops just as much or more at my gym.
also, in the US, people associate jock with people who play team sports, such as football, basketball, hockey, and baseball. Therefore, people usually don't think of golfers, swimmers, and tennis players as jocks. However, boxers and wrestlers are considered jocks.
"many dude who work out" = fat queen with a cat named Misty.
On A4A, it specifically means an athletic guy who wants only to have sex with other jocks.
I find guys who call themselves 'athletic' instead are more open to dating different types of guys.
[quote]However, boxers and wrestlers are considered jocks.
I consider pro wrestlers to be beefy actors.
R37 Her name is Mama - Mama's Mussy!
Ugh, "straight acting." Hate that term.
When you have a BIG FAT COCK IN YOUR MOUTH/ASS, there is nothing, absolutely nothing, straight about it.
I love the guys who want to be 'discrete', 'discreat', or 'discreet'...
Translation: Heavily closeted, and will likely freak out if you try to blow him.
Don't forget the "I'm curious" person who then claims he only bottoms. Um, if you're that far along, you're no longer just curious.
It is an annoying term R41, but there really isn't a set term for people who aren't noticeably/stereotypically gay so a lot of people still use it.
Most of the self-procliamed "jocks" I run across online are fat. And no, the jockstrap pic doesn't fool me into thinking differently.
real jocks don't wear jockstraps unless they are in the act of playing sports. and today, most wear compression shorts instead.
Does this pic of me holding a football make me look like less of a bottom?
(R6) You are sooooo bad...and I love it!!!!!
Right on!!! Their legs go up in the air faster than a 747.
It's code for delusional douchebags like R22 and R32 looking for somebody way out of their league.
It means that he was my HUSBAND!
Jock means they pride themselves on being able to talk with straight guys using statistics to mask hero worship.
It means they wear their pants low with a gut and love handles lapping over the waistband because they insist on purchasing the same size pants as they did in college. Only now they sit for a living: sit at a desk, sit to drive back and forth to work, and sit in front of the television.
Mostly it means that they will mimic their parents' facial expressions when you act in a less than manly manner.
A jock is a professional athlete.
It means 20 pounds overweight.
[quote]in the US, people associate jock with people who play team sports, such as football, basketball, hockey, and baseball. Therefore, people usually don't think of golfers, swimmers, and tennis players as jocks. However, boxers and wrestlers are considered jocks
That's right, bithes! I proudly identify as a jock on a4a!
Percy Prisspot, captain of the Weho synchronized swimming TEAM
If you had a full-ride athletic scholarship in college, you are a jock. All these other "jocks" online are just sports fans or fitness buffs. No scholarship, not a jock.
I like that definition, r55.
Except...many of them don't appear to be fitness buffs! At all.
I still remember meeting a guy who said he was a jock, had been an athlete in college and had a "football player build" The picture in his online ad was hot…a beefy, solid guy.
We met and clearly, the photo was at least 10 years old. He was so fat that his shirt didn't cover his belly. I told him point blank "sorry, but you completely misrepresented yourself" and walked away. (He reacted with a string of nasty names, of course.)
Learned my lesson on that one for life.
If you don't know how to properly throw a football and don't watch ESPN a lot, you can't be a jock.
R58 sounds like a peach. A rotten, elderly peach.
It's an identity marker in the gay world, but it's as meaningless as "bear".
Jock usually means a hot guy into sports.
jock = fat guy who doesn't wear women's panties
[quote]jock = fat guy who doesn't wear women's panties
I think you mean toward straight guys, when they get older and stop taking care of themselves.
Actually when a guy describes himself as bear, he is usually accurate. However, most gay dudes who describe themselves as "jock" would be laughed at in mainstream society if they presented themselves as a jock. You can't be a jock and be into Madonna and Lady Gaga. Just sayin....
The way to ensure that you don't get an out of shape "jock" is to specify that you are looking for an athletic "GYM jock." If a dude hasn't been to the gym this week, he probably does not have the fit physique most people looking for jocks want.
R65 the kind of music you listen too has nothing to do with being a Jock or not. I excelled at sports my whole life and playes baseball ib high school, I work out 5 days a week and can bench 285lbs all my friends are straight guys and when I tell people I'm gay they think I'm fucking with them and don't believe me and I happen to love Madonna.
R67's flames can be seen from space.
R68's ass can be seen from space.
r67, either you are the rare exception or you are not as masculine as you think you are.
[quote]when I tell people I'm gay they think I'm fucking with them and don't believe me
The fantasy is strong with this one.
I've been described as a Jock Strap, because I hang around your cock and balls like the real thing.
I love how some guys on here can't believe that a guy can be "masculine" and fit in great with straight guys and still be proudly gay. Not all of us ping y'know.
1) Decent body
2) Not FM-in-8
I think it's a butch euphemism for a gay guy who's butt is all stretch-out and stinks. Granted this simply deduction from all the jocks I've dated.
My first thought is: a guy in his 30s-40s, goes to the gym every now and then but not particularly athletic, owns some A&F clothing in which he'll pose for his CL photo, an inevitable baseball cap handy to cover a receding hairline, looking to attract some college varsity jailbait. Is convinced that all the people in his suburban office think he's a straight stud even though everybody knows he's gay.
r74, all gay guys ping. It's not an option, it's standard equipment. But, if it makes you feel better to believe that, go ahead, there's no penalty for fooling yourself.
You are not a jock if you haven't watched ESPN today or can tell me who won Sunday and tonight's NFL games.
It means "I am masculine and mainstream, a dude who no one would think is 'gay.'"
It means I am not a fem stereotype.
It is code for normal masculine dude
Real jocks played team sports in high school.
Most gays were not jocks.
Most gay jocks are bisexual and don't identify as "gay"
Jock is used very, VERY loosely almost to the point of it being laughable. It's almost as bad as the fat asses saying they are "football players".
Beware of the term " football build" Ask what position? A tight end like Rob Gronkowski? A quarterback like Cam Newton? Wide receiver like Eric Decker?
Are grown ass "Men" still holding on to that label? LMAO......Oh, "White America" you crack me up!
The term jock is somewhat dated and stereotypically when used in a gay context. Today, guys use updated code words ton convey the same meaning, such as "athletic," " loves sports," " laid back," "chill dude," or " masculine bro." There is just a general overall attitude conveyed by certain words that jocks use.
It means he presses flowers into Bibles, Rose!!
Any guy who uses "football build" in one of those ads is FAT.
Yeah, avoid football builds.
It means that his photo will include a baseball cap used to cover an increasingly large bald spot, an Abercrombie T-shirt from circa 2002 which once used to fit but is now hugging those love handles a bit too tightly, and that he's using the vocabulary nobody who is over 23 and is not a complete douchebag would use ("chill", "bro", etc.)
It means "I am masculine, athletic, mainstream, and popular with the bros."
Jock fulfills the sexual fantasy. They cater to it. And what it in return.
However, the ones that go around and say they want someone "educated" I feel is to avoid the label of shallow.
Usually, the descriptor "educated" means a lot of things to a lot of people. Just because you have a "degree" in something, it doesn't mean you are highly enlightened or brilliant, and want someone else to be the same. You can get a BA in finger painting of you wanted at the college level or BS in exercise. This is a paid educational system, where you buy a degree. Mostly.
The guys with the muscles and a college degree hold themselves too high in esteem.
R19, could they get the most stereotypical gays on that panel? The blond guy with too much product in his hair and the major gayvoice and gayface, the guy with the lisp and gesticulations, etc.
Jock orginally was a term used for fit guys 18-24. Now you see fat 30 year olds using the term because the clicker got stuck on ESPN and they were too lazy to get off the couch to change the channel manually.
It means MASCULINE and sports-loving.
It typically means delusional on a variety of levels.
It means no one ever suspects I am gay because I am so masculine and mainstream.
What R103 and 106 said.
Just be wary if the word "football" is ever in front of the word "jock".
I'm a fat ass who played football one year in junior high
It means, "I played a middle school or high school sport for one or two years and I then quit.", and "I think I'm hot".
It means they are more fit and won't embarrass the shit out of you in public, just to be seen together.
In online jargon, jock = fat slob who played JV football in high school
masculine and mainstream bro
Online jocks are either heavier guys or models. There is no in between with online jocks.
It means masculine, dudely, mainstream, normal, all-man.
If you can refer to yourself or your friends by using the word "dude" without laughing hysterically at yourself, you at least say you [italic]wish[/italic] you were a jock.
I watch ESPN a lot.
Masculine for masculine
It means you are mainstream , masculine, love sports, and no one would even suspect you are gay or bi.
"No one would ever think I am not straight."
Using the word jock in this context is dated on dating sites. It has been replaced by new, more nuanced codes, such as filling your profile with "dude, "bro," and "Brah, " or mentioning all the team sports you play, or your music taste.
Jock means they're a bit taller than average and own a baseball cap.
Football build means fat.
It is cold for normal masculine, athletic, sportsloving, unclockable, no one would ever suspect they are into dudes because they are one of the bros.
Hip and knee replacement.
And it's supposed to stay cold until next week, R124. Better wear your ballwarmer.
BTW, what's "unclockable"?
The word 'jock'
in a M4M format
is meant to imply 'athletic'.
The actuality is slightly different though, isn't it ?
What is "KELT"?
Whenever I get confused by someone's presence at a gay bar, or something he wear, or something he puts in his profile, I have to remind myself, "he wouldn't do it unless it worked."
Don't point the finger at the guy dropping the word "jock" in his profile. He figured out it gets him laid and that's that.
Go masculine or go home
[quote]You can get a BA in finger painting of you wanted at the college level
Please tell us of you have a BA in English.
For gay men, jocks are almost always muscular with low body fat and attractive. A jock can be of any age but are generally thought to be somewhat younger because their athletic abilities. Jocks are usually linked to actively playing sports. Years ago, the term "Jock" used to have a negative connotation in the straight world. For gays, to be called a jock is a compliment. An example of a jock body type would be David Beckham, the English born football (aka soccer) player.
A lot of gay guys have special definitions of jock that do not conform to the mainstream definition, and therefore, tend to disappoint people on personals sites who meet them with the mainstream definition of jock. In mainstream society, a jock usually is good at one of the big popular team sports such as football, hockey, basketball, baseball, and soccer. Lacrosse players can also be considered jocks because they play an aggressive team sport. Correspondingly, people expect jocks to be very masculine in the mainstream sense, very Alpha Male. There are also other indicators of Jock status, such as language (bro, dude, brah), clothing (Nike, Under Armour, Adidas, beanie hats, baseball caps), and music (hip hop and rock).
