Here's the predicament. I hate cycling shorts. I can't ride with them. I feel like they slow me down and I'm sitting in a diaper filled with excrement (although luckily I don't really remember what that's like). I'm currently riding a Brooks Swift and commute on the bike everyday. Recently, I've started developing issues with the perineum area and everyone (cyclists, physicians, etc) has said that I either need to ditch the saddle or start wearing cycing shorts. Neither option is good in my opinion.
I guess I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a saddle that's firm, narrow, has a low friction surface (but what can beat polished hardened leather?) and would be gentler on the taint.
