I don't know what women's underwear feels like Jim. ;-) But, I do have a pair of bicyle shorts. This trip I tried going comando. That seemed to work out pretty good. No underwear seams to deal with at all.

I also found the Corbin to be like riding on a cement block but it was a step up
from the stock seat.
Steve Northrop had a pair of spndex like long boxers (nearly to his knees). I
asked my son to get me a pair for Christmas. He ordered a pair from EBay but
they didn't arrive-he forgot to pay for them.
On the trip to Cabot Head lighthouse last week I tried out a pair of Athletic
Works Spandex boxers. I got them in Wal Mart (sorry) $6.00 CDN and they're
made for Pennman's in China (Sorry).
I found I got monkey butt about the 500 km (300 mile) mark with regular cotton
boxers. I had no trouble with the 650 km on this trip.
Few other pluses:
They are anti-microbactirial
You can hand wash them in a bathroom basin, hang them on a shower rod and they
are dry & clean for the next day's ride.
If you're getting a little warm in the crotch while riding, stand on the
pegs and these will cool your scrotum very quickly.
They feel like women's underwear ----
