Shorts/rubbing/creams/potions question

I've only recently bought lycra shorts after 3 years of commuting to use on longer recreational rides but have a query - should the pad be pushed right up into the creases of you legs/torso so no skin rubs? This doesn't feel particularly comfortable but is better than the rubbing I tend to get or the problem of my happy sack sticking to my thigh! Does this mean I need to start creaming up?[:D]
