Approximately one month ago (before I ordered my new bike and getting back into cycling after leaving it as a teenager) I would have told you I'd not be caught dead in cycling shorts. Now, for anything longer than a few miles, I wear them. The place I live and ride most (my neighborhood) has poorly paved roads. Funny, when you consider how well-off some of the residents in this area are (not me, but many are). It's also a huge amount of people living in a small area so we destroy our roads regularly. Since the paving is not great, the bumpiness on my backside is pain inducing, and I didn't want to get the super-cushiony-thick-grandpa style seat on my FX S6. The cycling shorts (and liners when I want to wear them under normal looking shorts) totally make my rides comfortable.
