Very creative design. It reminds of the seat that is on a kneeling/seat to help your posture and back. So novel.

Read the description:
"The testicles of male adult would not be pressed when riding on this saddle and the erection function would not be affected after a long distance riding, especially for the youngsters during their growth".
"The left and right sides of the seat will sway a little to agree with the movements of buttocks and left and right legs when pedaling" - good, we don't want them disagreeing.

I have a similarly designed seat. You tend to lean forward a bit more on a seat like this, creating a slightly unfamiliar posture when riding. It's not bad, just very different. Also because there is less pressure on "da boys," there is slightly increased pressure on the "seat," which can cause some discomfort, but nothing compared to the jumbly-squishing of a traditional seat.
Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase, but I would recommend trying one for comfort before buying it, unless there's a very liberal returns policy.

I have an older Specialized saddle/seat that has the center cutout (newer ones look much better) and it put pressure on just a couple points on my butt. Pulled it out of the garage recently and went on a long bumpy ride and boy was I sore the next day! Felt like I went into the pen for a few days!

Interesting. My brother-in-law, who just did 2 weeks in the pen himself, said he felt like he'd just done a long ride the day he got out.
