any tricks to finding an English saddle that doesn't "hurt" my man?

To be blunt, my husbands jewel's get pinched and bruised when he goes riding with me, so he doesn't ride with me.

I want to find him a good, comfortable, old, used English saddle so he can come riding with me. My father and brothers all rode English in both deep and flat seats, and I never remember any of them complaining or hunching over and grimacing like my husband does, and I can't figure out what to look for in a saddle to help him get comfortable.
My dad was 6'2" with short legs and loved his 18" saddle. My brother is 6'4" and used a 18" and 18.5" saddle. My husband is 6' with very short legs and is in agony in every 17.5" I've tried with him. He tried one 18", and that wasn't any better.
Any suggestions from you guys out there? Does it help to stick with the flatter seats? Should I keep trying him in bigger seats until his boys are freed?
I'm thinking wide twist, flat seat, and 18" or 18.5" seat. And padded underwear
