When I do sit ups my tail bone hurts. Am I doing it wrong or should I use pad?

In brief: Use a pad
Situps are very difficult on the tailbone, especially if you are slim and have little padding over that area.
Take care of yourself and use a pressure relieving pad! you will feel better, and be more effective in your exercise program with this.
