Hi there! To preface this, I am 18 years old, and I am a 100% virgin, I've never had sex, and I've never masturbated. I have primarily been a pad user throughout my teen years, but I have used tampons in the past. I bought a cup because I just liked the sound of it? How there's no chemicals and it's non absorbent, that kind of stuff. My problem is, whenever I go to insert it, everything down there kinda closes up shop and gets tight, and it's borderline painful. I've researched kegels and have tried to relax my vaginal muscles but nothing's really helped. Do you have any tips?

Take your time. Get familiar with yourself. You don't HAVE TO use a cup just because you own one. Mix and match with other methods until you're comfortable and ready. Skim/Read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ for helpful hints such as enlarging the anti-suction holes (that happen to be rather minuscule on Divas.)

The good news is that the Diva is a long-bodied cup. If it turns out to be too long for you, at least it will be easier to remove to learn to get it out. And if it happens to turn out to be your Goldilocks (juuuust riiiight) cup, GREAT!

Some lube might help, too. Kuradi's comment is great but lube might help. Also, try inserting in different positions. Maybe standing with a leg on the side of the tub, maybe laying down, maybe squatting.

see the virgin's guide to cups: http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/1243131.html
in general you need to be able to insert 2 fingers comfortably. when starting out i wasn't able to but i quickly learned :)
