Rearend problem

I just put a new Fizik Arione on my bike and have ridden it 3 times. When I sat down after my ride, I noticed it had a chafed feeling. I bent over in front of a mirror when my wife was not looking and noticed that the back part of the saddle was branded into my ass. When I say brand, it looks red with the perfect outline of the back of the seat. What do I do?
I can take photos if necessary.

Advil, a soak in a bath, and sit on an ice pack for ten or fifteen minutes. I know of what I speak. Don't ask.

Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

Oh, man! I thought this was going to be about the wheel hub or something. Anyway, we get the idea. No photos needed
Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
