Hornless seat?(easy seat etc.)

Anyone ever use a hornless seat like the easy seat,Schwinn,Ergo etc? On my horned seat if I tilt it forward to relieve pressure than I'm being "pushed" into the handlebars and end up with sore arms and hands. If I level the seat or tilt it back slightly then it's uncomfortable "Down there". The hornless seat looks like it would solve the lower pressure but may "push" forward. What's your experience?

they had something similar at my favorite LBS,in the blowout-we cant sell this stuff boxes.
i was seriously considering buying one. it was like 2 circles-1 for each cheek - and you perch yourself on those and,take off.

imthinking now,i may as well go back and,give one of those a try. it may be just what i need.i cant afford any nerve damage. i havent had -LITTLE BRODIE -yet.if its comfortable enough,i will probably use it instead of the brooks,since winter is coming.
