That's cool. I was waiting to hear about saddle sores. Never had saddle sores? Pray you don't... skin has ways of making you miserable!

Sounds like you had fun.

A leather saddle will eliminate that possibility. At least after a couple hundred miles when it's broken in to fit, it will.

Hmm. T'was a leather saddle, but at a 'dude' ranch. We were trekking in Wyoming and spent the better part of an afternoon playing in a mountain stream where it emerged from the mountain. In our undies, as this was scout camp. Then we dressed and rode out.

Wet + saddle = sores. It was a mild case, but man, they are wicked things, saddle sores.

Adding water to a ride can be a bad thing. And that's the what I thought of when she started out describing her ride in the rain.

Bike seats would concentrate the pain to a much more intimate area. Ouch!

No, they won't. Not unless the bike saddle is not properly fitted. If you are riding on a properly sized saddle, all your weight will be on your sit bones, supported by the wide wing on the back of the saddle. The horn in the front is only there for balance; if you have weight on it, you're going to have problems and you should adjust or replace the seat.
