Effect of cadence on Saddle Comfort

Hello! I am getting back into training. Here's my dilemma. I want to build miles by spinning at a high cadence, say 95+. This kind of spinning however puts more of a strained feeling on my butt, or more specifically, I think the perineum. As a result, I often default to a slower cadence at a higher gear because pushing that way relieves the pressure off the saddle making me more comfortable. My question is how can I resolve this dilemma so I can spin more briskly, staying a bit more comfortable? For reference I have no weight to loose...I am 5' 7" and weight 140. Thanks!
