Should it be boiled first?

I just got my DivaCup in the mail today (I wanted to try it out, but my period just so happened to end yesterday, so I'm SOL for now) and I was wondering, should I boil it before the first use? Or just wash it with some Dr.Bronners? I'm sort of scared to boil it because I don't want to ruin it, so I'm hoping that it isn't necessary.
Also, I'm pretty intimidated by how hard it is, and it looks like would hurt like a mofo to get it in. Even with the "punch fold" :|
