I know i'm not a male, but i cant say that i think most males my keep themselves slightly propped up out of the saddle (at least that is what sounds right to me) I'll ask my fiance when he gets back in the room...one minute...ok heres what he has to say (by the way he rides western and hes just a pleasure rider no shows or anything)...he says he raised the stirrups up a little bit so that when hes sitting down most of the pressure is in his thighs to hold on, and that instead of sitting directly on your ischial ramus (might want to look that up if your not sure what that is), you sit more deep on your ischial tuberosity (might want to look that up too lol), he says often that he switches off and on from the thigh deal to the sitting deal cuz one gets tiring, but he says once your used to it you dont even realize your switching positions (kinda like second nature i guess) I hope this helps.
Sorry for the anatomy terms above, i'm majoring in occupational therapy and i get specific when i try to explain something.
