I believe that bicycle seat comfort is more about adjusting your expectations for your style of riding than an objective measure of comfort. I do the same thing on my bicycle seats and always have since I started riding seriously 35 years ago. For your reference, I am a man, 5'11" and about 150lbs, so I have a relatively small frame. I have ridden numerous centuries and double centuries (100 miles and 200 mile rides), commuted 15 miles each way for 30 years.
My two most used bikes are a road bike and a town bike, both fitted with leather Brooks saddles that I ride for different purposes. I use a men's B-17 on the road bike which is a narrow, stiffer, harder saddle. The town bike is a converted '80s TREK touring frame that is now a one-speed with upright style bars with a women's B-67s. The difference between mens' and womens' saddles, interestingly enough seems to be the length, not the width.
I find myself moving back on both saddles to get my "butt bones" over the rail because it takes pressure of the softer tissues. I don't necessarily stay in that position, but I do it now and then because it just feels better to change positions. I shift around more on the B-17 than the B-67. I have not tried the B-67s on a road bike with the drop bars. I'm just enjoying it too much on the upright town bike to want to experiment. It is comfortable enough that I have ridden it on some 25 mile rides with less butt fatigue than the B-17.
The funny thing about seats is that even though the B-17 is stiffer and harder, it is my preferred seat when I'm trying to ride fast as in a 10-15 mile commute run where I want to put my head down and get there as fast as possible. The only saddle I don't move around on is the cheap, original mattress style saddle on my 50lb. Schwinn Cyclone one-speed. But I wouldn't want that saddle on a road bike or even my favorite town bike. Why? Because a very soft saddle seems to absorb more energy and feels less efficient.
