Question for Males

I searched for another thread on this but couldn't find one. I am relatively new to horseback riding, and am finding out through instruction that the better my position and seat get, the more I tend to squish my man parts. Because of that reason I have a tendency to recline in the saddle and this throws me all out of balance; heels up, legs way forward, etc.

How do the males deal with this? Boxer briefs help, but don't solve the problem. Advice please...thanks!

I have always wondered why my boyfriend complained about the same thing when I put him on a horse ( he doesn't ride often) and why I notice other men competing as though there is no issue??? It would be interesting to see where this thread goes- I have always wondered....... never had the guts to ask though

I know i'm not a male, but I can't 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 he's just a pleasure rider no shows or anything)...he says he raised the stirrups up a little bit so that when he's 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 because one gets tiring, but he says once your used to it you don't 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.

Incase you don't want to look that up, ill kinda explain to you what the ischial ramus and the ischial tuberosity is...

Ischial Ramus: kinda like sitting DIRECTLY on your "area"

Ischial Tuberosity: Sitting DIRECTLY on your butt bones. (Just remember when sitting directly on your buttbones to keep your back straight so it doesnt look like your leaning back too far)

Sometimes I need to reach down and rearrange the furniture to get things where they belong. I wear Wranglers and they fit a little more snug than most jeans so that helps too. Sometimes you just need to man up and live with it.

Im a girl, but hey we feel it too, so I thought id try to help. They make special riding briefs for guys that hold your junk nice and snug and some are even a bit padded (hehe like a cup!).
Oh ya and im sorry if this doesn't help at all but I saw this old calvary mens saddle that had a special notch or trough thing cut in the seat just for man part relief, maybe you could look into that if you are really hardcore about not having discomfort in your boys when you ride.
And there was actually a thread about this very subject somewhere before they movedstuff around, ill see if I can find it for ya...
