Help, How To Rotate The Cup?

I have tried using my diva cup so many times and I'm having issues that I can't find help for anywhere else.  I'm a virgin so my muscles down there are probably tight, not making the job any easier. 

I can barely insert the cup.  If I do get it in from the punch down fold method it will not open, will not twirl once inside, and it is painful inserting and taking out.  I'm wondering what in the world makes this painful?  You do not have to answer that question, I believe it is the hymen.

How do women get this darn thing to twirl?  Its too slippery, my hand is slippery to grasp the thing to turn.   If I do get a hold of it I still can't get it to rotate.  This is so frustrating! 

I'm also afraid that once I do get it in the right place that it will rise too high in the canal and be difficult to remove without the help of a doctor or tweezers.  I really don't want that to happen!  Since I'm having trouble with the simple stuff right now I can't imagine how difficult it would be for me to get it out in that kind of situation.  I hope I don't have to trim the stem!

I've never used tampons because I had heard stories of the string breaking and having to go to the emergency room. 

I really would like to stop using disposable products because of the environment, money and it seems convenient.

Thank you for the help!
