Use

Shunga's Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac oil is an edible treat used to tantalize your partner, bringing them to an ecstatic bout of desire and enchantment. Shunga does not recommend it as a first choice for massages, but rather to arouse your partner with the heat it creates when gently blown on and the sensitivity brought by passionate strokes of the tongue. The "aphrodisiac" part of this oil stems from such sensations.

This product is great for sensual foreplay and oral delights but will also work well enough for extended massages. It is safe to use with condoms and can be used with toys, but only those that are compatible with oil.

When used as directed, rub this oil on your partner or yourself and softly breathe kisses on the skin where it was applied. This produces a warming feeling that gives the impression of body heat.

With certified organic ingredients such as vegetable glycerin and a natural corn by-product, you can feel good about using this product. Here are the ingredients as listed on the bottle:
Glycerin, Propanediol, Flavor (aroma), Sodium saccharine, FD&C Blue #1 (CI 19140), FD&C Yellow #5 (CI 42090).

These ingredients could lead to infections in those who are prone to UTIs and the like. If you are one of those people, you may not want to use this in your oral affairs or at all on those sensitive bits.

Each bottle contains 3.5 ounces of Aphrodisiac oil. If the Exotic green tea doesn't appeal to you, there are 9 other flavors offered. The difference being that the green tea is the only one that is certified organic.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

In the bottle, the oil appears to be translucent bright green.

In fact, the oil is clear and looks much thinner in the bottle than it really is. The texture of the oil is great for its intended use. It is thick and silky smooth. Provided that the oil is poured slowly from the bottle, the amount that comes out is easily controlled. Doing so will allow the oil to drip out in single small droplets.

When dripped onto a flat surface, the drops remain intact and don't spread out into a pool. Despite this thickness, when held upright, the oil will promptly run down. The consistency is something like a syrup.

Only a few drops are needed, depending on the surface area being coated, as this oil is lavishly rich. It does bead up and doesn't absorb into the skin very well.


Aphrodisiac oil will last a long time, or at least so long as it hasn't been licked off yet. It glides effortlessly over the skin, leaving you sticky if left on. Although when licked off, there is no sticky or greasy residue.

Taste / Aroma

This oil smells fantastic! It doesn't smell at all like green tea, however. The scent is a lot more like green apples. In fact, it smells kind of like green Sour Puss, but a little sweeter. The fragrance is strong but not heavy. It does not bother me at all and I am very sensitive to smells.

The taste is sweet and tangy. It's hard to describe since I don't like it much but my partner loves it. In my opinion, it has a very artificially sweet bitterness that lingers on the tongue. The green tea is more apparent in the taste than it is in the smell. My partner finds the taste acidic initially but once he accustoms himself to it he can appreciate the taste. He affirms the sweet green tea flavor.

The heat generated by the oil can be felt on the tongue also. In truth, it warms up your whole mouth.
    • Smells good

Performance

This oil should last us a while, especially since I am not particularly into the taste of it. About a couple teaspoons is enough to cover the whole back and will last for a very long massage. We got about 40 minutes of massage time before it felt too thick and sticky. If using the oil for a massage, it is definitely not the best for full body massages, as it will remain sticky and won't soak in. 3 to 4 drops is enough for a hand job/blow job. Provided that you can keep yourself from licking it all off right away, of course.

Since the oil does not absorb into the skin much, it will last as long as it is there. It produces a phenomenal warmth so long as it is being rubbed around. A soft breath will then send your partner into a blissful tranquility. Once licked off, the taste, scent and warmth will no longer be there.

You may feel the need to hop in the shower afterwards. If there is still oil on the skin it will be left feeling sticky. On the other hand, having the oil completely licked off may leave you with stinky spit smell on the skin, which you may want to wash off anyway. The oil requires soap and water to wash off but does wash off easily. It doesn't stain sheets or clothes either.

The bottle might need a quick wash with soap and water as well. It is not super efficient for pouring and can drip down the edge a little if you're not careful. It can also get oily if grabbed with sticky fingers during reapplication.
    • Gets sticky
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water

Packaging

Shunga really outdid themselves with the packaging of the Aphrodisiac oil. The bottle comes packaged in the typical Shunga tin. This is a durable cardboard cylinder with a metal top and bottom. The top lifts off similarly to a paint can lid. Directions for use are written on the back of the tin in 4 different languages as seen pictured below.


There is a thin piece of foam in the bottom of the tin to keep the bottle from knocking around in transit. Along with the bottle that fits perfectly in the tin is a product pamphlet that contains all the same information as can be found on the Shunga website.

The bottle itself is made of a thick, heavy-duty glass. It is initially sealed with plastic shrink-wrap around the top. There is an easy pull tab to remove it. The label around the bottle is simple. The ingredients are listed, along with the name and flavor (Exotic Green Tea) of the oil. The only downside to this packaging is the cork. The faux cork is extremely difficult to remove. My partner had to use his teeth to open it. It got easier after a while once it got a little oil around the edges. Unfortunately, that was short lived and it has reverted to its miserable stubborn ways. The cork stays in really well and keeps the bottle from leaking oil. I left the bottle on its side for a few days and it didn't seem to leak. I don't know if I would trust it for travel though as the bottle is glass and a few days may not necessarily mean it will never leak. Also the bottle will leak if the cork is not in properly. It has to be shoved in up to where the ridges start.

Neither the tin or bottle are entirely discreet. Both feature the same image of a couple with their limbs intertwined. The words "Erotic Art" are found on both, as well as the product name "Intimate kisses aphrodisiac oil". The beauty of the bottle is sure to draw attention as well. Nevertheless, it's not a bottle that you'll be ashamed to have or want to hide.

This would be a beautiful gift for any occasion. The product really delivers and the packaging is stunning.

Special Features

The fact that this oil is edible and doesn't taste awful is just a nice big bonus. The best feature is the unique warmth it produces. This heat is deeply penetrating. It is almost immediate upon application but grows so much more intense when lightly blown on. The skin becomes increasingly sensitive. When it comes time to lick this off your partners body, they'll be writhing in a titillated frenzy.
    • Increases sensitivity
    • Warming

Experience

I got this oil thinking it would be a great massage tool and double as a foreplay aid. I was wrong and disappointed at first. But then I realized how great this product really was. This oil is so great that I don't even care that it's not the best for massages.

My partner really loves the taste so it's a shame he can't use this on me for oral but I have used this on him for blow jobs. Aside from the taste it was fun for both of us. It's slick enough to use for hand jobs as well. Massaging it all over my partners penis caused it to heat up. As I hovered around him with gentle breaths, my partner really began to sink into the moment. The oil provided a sensational prelude to oral on him.

My partner loves putting this on my stomach, breasts, and thighs. He rubs it around and as it starts to heat up, he'll gently blow on me. He then eagerly licks it off. When combined with a blindfold during our playtime, an amplified sense of touch was bewilderingly lustful.

The oil begins to warm up almost instantly after being drizzled on the body. Initially, it isn't warm but nowhere near as chilly as lotions are. The warmth was still felt after a 40 minute massage and could be reactivated in a sense with a little friction.

The warming quality was great when massaging. But we found the oil to be too thick and sticky to be able to use it for this. The necessity for a shower after wasn't a bad thing, just not ideal for our routine. Nonetheless, it would work wondrously for a special evening together.

Although I wasn't fond of this particular flavor, I am in love with the product itself. It works so well, it's sensual and unique. I am keeping this one for my partner to use on me and I intend to try other flavours offered.

I could not give it more than 3 stars because the cork is just so frustrating. Even my hulk-of-a-man has a hard time with it. I also think the artificially sweetened bitter flavor could be improved. Even though my partner loves it, I know I won't be the only one who doesn't.
Follow-up commentary
I don't necessarily like this one more, but I have bought other flavors, namely the chocolate and strawberry variations, and I absolutely love them.

The warming sensation is awesome and once I found that there were flavors I could enjoy, that made all the difference. The flavors are quite "in your face" so I highly recommend selecting one that you feel strongly about. My partner thought the chocolate flavor was simply "ok", whereas I, a chocoholic, thought it was fantastic.

I have even recommended this product to a couple I know and they were thrilled with the grape flavor they purchased.

I still do not recommend this for massages, since it is quite sticky, but I did find the other flavors to be a bit more slippery.
