I rode a pedicab in ATX for more than a decade. During special events, I was sometimes in the saddle working for 12-16 hours and commuted back and forth by bicycle.
Brooks leather saddle, high tech underwear, and any comfortable shorts worked for me. No padding, bike specific shorts not necessary.
Also, shower, soap, good hygiene, between rides. Knock down the bacteria count best you can before getting back in the saddle.
Some folks use disinfecting wipes to help with bacteria.
