Just can't take the pressure

Looking for a discrete cushion I can use to protect blood flow through my perineum to... to the bits connected to the perineum. Or some other solution

I have a very bony butt, and if I sit on a seat with any give in it, it produces pressure on my perineum. I think this reduces blood flow to my penis, because if I sit that way for a few hours a day, my penis starts to hurt, and if I beef things up with a couple of pads under my sit bones so that there is no pressure on the perineum, the pain goes away fairly quickly. I've been living with this for more than a year, and have gone through a few cycles of sit->pain->padding->no pain with different seats, so I'm at least pretty sure of the correlation, but other interpretations are welcome.
Anyway, I'm looking for a solution to this, preferably one which doesn't lead my coworkers to conclude that I have hemorrhoids.
