Discovered this one about a week ago. Just google 'Amy cup' and it will pop up. It's very unusual in appearance.
Has anyone tried one? Are they comfortable?

Is that an applicator to put the cup in the correct position? If so, quite interesting
EDIT: I downloaded the PDF, which has several languages including English, and it does have an applicator! I might have to try to get one!

Very odd, I'm not really picturing how to use that applicator, it seems like it might make it harder to get it in the right position. I know I prefer applicator-less tampons because I can actually guide them in the right direction rather than just pushing the plunger and hoping for the best.

How odd! btw here's the site link: http://www.amycup.com/

Seems to me that it would be difficult for virgins/those with a strong hymen because even the opening of that applicator seems pretty wide. And unless you have every STD known to man, why is it a problem to come into contact with the skin of your vag? lol.

They also need to stop saying that cups sit lower than tampons, for crying out loud.

(Looks like the PDF has several languages available but if anyone wants something on the site itself translated let me know. I am pretty good with written Italian...speaking not so much)

Ha! It reminds me of a light bulb! And it looks familiar. I don't think this is the first cup with this shape or with an applicator. And it looks like you use the applicator also as a remover. With the remover attached it looks like a mini flashlight.

This seems so impractical. Plenty of people have enough trouble with removal without having to screw on a removal tool. And it doesn't look like the "cup" has much capacity.

It looks a lot like the Lily Compact, although the design is entirely different. I think it's just the color.

I'm completely intrigued, mostly by the novelty of it. It's probably a good thing it's not available in the US. :P
I'm probably going to be needing a new cup soon (my Diva is nearing 10 years old at this point).

Following. I'm interested in this as well. The #1 reason I haven't switched to a cup is because I have weird texture anxiety issues, and touching the inside of my vag completely grosses me out. I know I should "get over it," but I have enough other things to "get over," this isn't high on the list... It's just enough of a psychological barrier to avoid doing altogether. If I could use an applicator, I'd totally be doing cups. So... yeah, reviews would be great!
