What does "jock" in a profile mean?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 133July 27, 2014 7:45 AM

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).

I think after a certain age (any age after 25) that a man should not use the word "jock". It's comes across as high schoolish to me.

People use it to send a message that they are fit, and athletic. Or, that they are masculine. The problem is that in many cases they are not. A man should just say that they play sports, or that they're athletic. How ridiculous is it for a fifty year old refer to himself as a jock.

Now, this does not mean that they shouldn't post on realjock.com, or other sites like that, but grow up! ...we're not in high school.

I don't associate "jock" with high school R146 - wondering if others do.

For me, it's code for "people meeting me for the first time don't immediately wonder if I'm gay" but I find a lot of guys play fast and loose with that term.

I even asked my bi best bud if he ever refers to himself as a "jock" and he started laughing and was all like "Fuck No, maybe if you played team sports in high school, but not if you're a grown ass man".

It means the guy wants you to know that a purse doesn't fall out of his mouth when he talks and that he knows which of the local sports teams plays football as opposed to baseball.

When used on hook-up sites, the description turns out to be accurate maybe 50% of the time.

I am amazed at how many gay guys who describe themselves as "jocks" on sites/apps also have very effeminate, unjock-like traits on their profiles. How you gonna call yourself jock and have a pic or reference to Beyonce, Nikki Minaj, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, or Lady Gaga on your profile? Are how you gonna be a jock and be catty/bitchy on your profile? It's like some gay guys don't realize what the mainstream definition of a jock is.

I work out regularly and look athletic, but in no way am I a jock. In all my years I've never known a gay that plays basketball or football. Baseball, maybe, and volleyball. Basketball? NEVER. Only lesbians that I've known have played basketball.

I have never considered military guys hot as a class, R190. Some are, some aren't, just as in real life. I mostly see them as victims, fighting in an unnecessary war, which gets in the way of my perceiving them as "hottest" or "manliest."

by Anonymousreply 193November 28, 2015 3:58 PM

In personals, true "jocks" usually don't call themselves jocks. They usually tell you their interests (sports, sports, sports) and let you label them accordingly. Also, a lot of gay men define jock a lot differently than everyone else, which can lead to disappointment for prospective dates.

The good folks over at Gay Pop Buzz asked different guys to define what “jock” means to them. Let’s take a look at some of their responses…

Mike, 30, defines a jock the most literally:

I work out a lot at the gym and prefer to meet guys who do the same. So when I put that in my description [gay jock] it’s my way of letting people know my body type and what I’m looking for.

Bruce, 36, has a similar but slightly different interpretation:

When I was in high school and college, I used to play different sports. I’m still active at the gym five days a week and play volleyball. So yeah, to my mind, I feel OK with calling myself that.

Then there’s Dan, 27, who says “jock” is less of a physical trait and more of a behavioral one:

It’s simple. When I use the term [gay jock] it means that I am a masculine guy and that I prefer to hook up with guys who are the same. It means you act like a man.

Steven, 38, says it’s a term used to describe one’s member:

It should be obvious. A jock is a masculine top that has a nice size d***! If you look at my profile, I tell everyone I’m 9 with a built body. Do you want to hook up so I can show you?

Meanwhile, Keith, 25, says a jock is someone who wants to be discreet:

When you see that word [jock] it means the guy is guy isn’t out. Only my close friends know I am gay but nobody else does. I’ve always used it to let people know I’m not open to everyone. I just like getting BJ’s anyway. Am I doing it the wrong way?

Jimmy, 41, somehow associates a jock with being… a pig?:

I’m into piggy and like guys who let me breed them out. Guys I usually hook up with like a nice, thick load from someone athletic. So in my bio, that’s why I have jock. It’s worked well ever since I’ve put it in there.

And then there’s Scott, 42, who says “jock” just means a guy who likes to watch football and stuff:

I’ve always thought it meant you were into sports and watched ESPN. I don’t work out as much as I used to but I still go to the gym. I still play tennis. Should I take it out of my profile?

How do you define the word “jock” on a dating profile? Share you interpretations in the comments…
