Brooks saddle

I completely wore out my old wtb saddle which had been with me for about three bicycles.  Now,  with a longer commute, I figured I could easily break in a Brooks. I’ve gone about 60 miles on it with 25 of them in torrential rain.  The instructions on Brooks website suggest stretching the saddle every six months.

The way it presently sits isn’t particularly comfortable.  I slide down to the center of the. Saddle and also keep pushing. Myself back to the rivets where the saddle doesn’t try to rub my perineum.  It’s this a common experience? I’m also tempted to tip the nose of the saddle higher so I don’t slide forward as much. You can clearly see the nose is really high already.  Was very tempted to bend the dang thing into a different shape but I calmed down after that grouchy ride. Advice?
