Can Penetration Be Cute?If you're a beginner to toys or a beginner to glass toys, this is the best beginner design I've seen in quite some time. The curve and tapered head for g-spot stimulation will at the very least tickle your fancy, and the handle is one of the best inventions I've seen on glass toys. That being said, if you are a more advanced user looking for texture and additional girth, I'd suggest the rainbow heart as opposed to the love journey.
Non-Intimidating for Beginners
Easy to Clean
Lack of Texture (for some)
The love journey is slightly curved, and with it having a tapered head, it might just rub your g-spot the right way. I personally haven't had much luck, but I'm often more impressed by toys with more girth. As for the handle, it'll help you steer things in the right direction while keeping you from slipping. Another thing that's particularly important about this handle is that it may make it quite a bit easier to thrust, but you want to remember that glass can bruise the cervix.
The love journey is made of glass, which is compatible with all lubricant types. However, glass in general, doesn't seem to need much lubrication. There is no drag to glass, and too much lubricant can leave this toy too slippery for pleasure. However, in case you decide that the love journey would be an exciting anal toy (it does have a handle, which is large enough to count for a flared base), a little bit of lubricant may be needed. Regardless of your choice of lubes, this dildo can easily be cleaned. Glass toys can be sterilized with many being capable of withstanding the top shelf of a dishwasher. A 10% bleach solution, boiling, soap and water, and any type of cleaning wipes or foam can also clean the love journey.
As for storing, I've found that the more glass I own, the more complicated it becomes. While the love journey comes with a red velvet-like bag and wrapped in bubble wrap, it's hard to tell one red bag from the next. When I am looking for a certain glass toy, I find myself going through bag after bag. In the near future, I think I'm going to bust out my label maker in order to organize my glass toys in a way in which I can find them more easily.
While glass has some positive travel attributes (no batteries and accidental turn ons, nothing to set off a metal detector, etc.), I also would not trust my glass in anything except for a carry-on. I once dated someone who worked for FedEx, and I've seen how packages are treated. I can only imagine how luggage is treated by airlines. Actually, luggage is also lost relatively often I'm told, and I personally wouldn't be too happy about putting "glass dildo" on my lost luggage list.
As per usual, let me mention that glass has no smell and no taste. I personally don't think the taste is an issue anyway because putting glass in your mouth seems kind of dangerous for your teeth. Just don't try to lick a glass toy seductively! However, due to my sensitive nose, many toys with even light smells give me headaches, which is why I've developed such a preference for glass. Glass is also well-known for its temperature play capabilities. It can be put in the fridge or stuck in a warm bowl of water. I prefer to not go any more intense than those cooling and warming techniques in order to not freeze or burn my lady bits.
