The Easy Seat is a fundamentally flawed concept, precisely because of loss of control and stability ("little extra balance").
What types of saddles have you been using? I have a narrow padded Marin which causes me pain in the perinaeum after about 15 mi / 25 km , but I always find all three of my tensioned leather Brooks saddles extremely comfortable. If you react badly to any saddle, consider a recumbent bike. Also, experiment a bit with handlebar height, stem reach, seat height, and seat tilt.
