Divacup: attempt #1

I just got my Divacup in the mail last month, right after my period ended, so I haven't gotten to try it until now (I'm up writing a paper, so its sudden emergence just now is rather inconvenient--I was planning to go to bed! But I thought now would be as good a time as any to give it a first run.). Not the easiest thing to insert, it seems; it kept popping out prematurely, resulting in great pain, but I eventually managed to get it in. But how do you pinch it to turn it around? I tried, but it was too slippery to get a good hold of things with my fingertips, and I don't think I could fit in any more of my thumb and forefinger in along with the cup without causing severe pain. I'm just going to hope there's a seal in there for the night.

Help, please?

By the way, I remember someone's having made a comprehensive post of first-time Divacup tips a long time ago, but it doesn't seem to be in the memories; did anyone happen to bookmark it? Thanks muchly.
