I just think that padding in cycling shorts for male riders that presses up against any parts of the male anatomy is counter-productive to what's being attempted through the use of saddle cutouts (discounting saddle with no nose at all, of course).
it sounds like you're wearing your shorts incorrectly. The testicles should be up top, in front of your thighs, not underneath anywhere close to the saddle. Cut outs are for the perineum, which is further south.
