Instagram Users Put Their “Cock In A Sock” For A Good Cause

Screen shot 2014-03-22 at 16.52.50An internet sensation is underway, and all you need to be a part of it, is a cock.

And a sock.

Behind every sock is a serious weapon, and unlike the current #manupandmakeup campaign, the hashtag #cockinasock has been set up specifically to raise awareness and funds for testicular cancer.

In the United States, between 7,500 and 8,000 diagnoses of testicular cancer are made each year. In the UK, that figure is approximately 2,000.

It’s the most common type of cancer for guys between 20 and 39.

The Facebook page pushing the campaign, Cock in a sock, has over 78,000 likes, with tons of supportive photos, donations and messages appearing.

But of course, Facebook being Facebook, there are tons of guys being reported for “violating community standards.” The message: “Sorry if seeing a man wearing something like this on his willy offends you. Maybe you prefer to see you or your loved ones suffering with cancer? Keep donating, ignore the hating!” has been shared over 2,300 times – testament to the fact that there is a serious issue behind the naughtiness.

    This could be the fad of the future for males at the beach in a few years.

    No homo.

  • Apparatus

    I see the war against pubes has been won. It doesn’t look like a single one of these guys is sporting a full bush.

  • Larry

    @Apparatus: Wars against what is natural are futile. Its the only Bush I love!! LOL

  • VirginiaBiker

    I had testicular cancer 1981-82. This is a great idea.

  • Rob

    Wonder what they’d do to promote prostate cancer awareness. Nice to see someone’s doing something about male cancers. Kinda flustrating when everyone goes balls to the wall over breast cancer awareness (which is more of a business than awareness) but you don’t see a damn thing about testicular, prostate or even male breast cancer. It’s like feminists control the cancer industry.

  • jpking8814

    @Rob: For prostate cancer there is Movember (No shave November)

  • Tracy Pope

    I commented about this on the half-drag selfies article and it was held up for review by Queerty for whatever reason and now, lo, Queerty has posted about it.

  • stranded

    @jake_h_ needs to grow his bush back, then go do porn.

  • Rob

    @jpking8814: Oh. I vaguely remember something about that, but never saw an explanation about what it was.

  • Louis

    The last one should do porn …wow.

  • Horse Lips

    This is a trend I could get behind.

  • hotshot70

    cool idea.

  • Franklin

    None of the links to the facebook and instagram accounts work. Maybe they are typed in incorrectly?

  • JennyFromdabloc

    One of Queerty’s best posts. And a good cause.

  • Kangol

    @Apparatus:

    Um, did you not see the last guy, with the fire crotch???

  • jonindallas

    It appears many think the size of the sock is important.

    My cousin ended up with testicular cancer in his 20s. He is now a one nut wonder, but the doc said we need to check out nuts out regularly. It so hard to do.

  • PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

    Sock it to me! :p

  • Sweet Boy

    I´ll do it with a fishnet stocking

  • Zombie_Killer

    Something I learned in grade school, its kinda stupid…so here it goes.

    Days were old nights were bold rubbers weren’t invented, that tied a sock around their clocks and babies were prevented.
