Lubricant by Shunga Erotic Art

Does its job!

This lube and I were not meant to be. It's a great lube if you know what you want or if you're very good with knowing exactly how much lube you need, but it tastes awful and I can never get it to dispense less than "Woah! Too much!" It's very easy to clean off, which is good since the bottle leaks a bit!

Use

This product is a good, water-based lubricant that would be good for external stimulation and vaginal or anal insertion! I would not recommend this for oral because it has QUITE an unpleasant taste! I feel like a little bit of this would be very beneficial when giving a handjob, but too much is just unpleasant and gooey, and makes oral near impossible! This lube would work well for anyone who does not mind the ingredients! This lube works wonderfully in bedroom situations, but since it is water-based, it doesn't last very long at all in the shower! I'd suggest in getting a different type for water play!

This item contains glycerin, methylparaben, and propylparaben, so if you're sensitive, this might not be the lube for you! If you're very concerned, you can always consult a physician, or try a small amount on your skin before you get going to see if you have any negative reactions!

These are the listed ingredients!
Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Polyquaternium 7, MethylParaben, PropylParaben.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is a very slippery lube and a little goes a long way! It stays in place well, and it doesn't feel too sticky or greasy. My only complaint is that it's very difficult not to get too much out of the bottle! Also, it's a little bit tacky if you get too much of it, but when you only have a small amount, it is very smooth and pleasant.

Overall, this is not a thick lube. It pours a little less easily than water, and does drip if you get too much! Fortunately, it doesn't dry sticky, so it's not a big deal if you happen to get it down your arm!

Overall, this lube would be a perfect texture for a different type of bottle!
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

This lube has no scent, but it certainly has a taste! I have no idea what this taste is, but it certainly isn't pleasant! I would almost recommend getting the flavored version, just in case you lick your fingers!

It's a very bittersweet flavor when it first comes in contact with your tongue, but then slowly fades to a subtle, almost crab-apple flavor. This will linger on your palate for quite a while, so I would say that one should make quite an effort not to taste this! Because of this (and the ingredients), I would not recommend this lube for oral use!
    • Bad taste
    • Strong taste

Performance

This product lasts as long as I needed it too, and I didn't need to reapply it when I switched between toys! I feel that if you were going to be playing for more than forty-five minutes, it might need reapplication or for some saliva to reactivate it (VERY CAREFULLY because of the taste). It feels very natural, which is certainly a plus!

I washed this off my toys very easily! Because it is water-based, it comes off without a problem and almost no rubbing! It's super easy to wash off of fabrics, too, and I haven't experienced any staining!

This product does its job very well, lubricating my toys. It's great for all types of toys, and a little bit makes everything feel wonderful and smooth! Unfortunately, the taste is a huge turn off for me, and it's difficult to not get too much of this out of the bottle!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Allergy concerns
    • Feels natural

Packaging

When I received this lube for my assignment, it had leaked everywhere! Fortunately, it dried non-tacky and non-greasy on the bottle, so that was only a small crisis. The lid is easy to open with one hand, but that's where the ease of use ends.

The bottle is firm, so it's either you get a TINY bit, or you get a huge glob out. This makes for a huge mess, and leaves everything tasting awful! I wish that there was a better design for this bottle that didn't leak and was made for dispensing more controllable amounts.

Overall, the bottle is very aesthetically pleasing and looks very tasteful. Since it leaks, I would recommend transferring this into a more secure container for traveling.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Leaky container
    • Messy dispenser

Experience

I wanted to love this lube, I really did. I had to wait for it, it was my first assignment, and it had wonderful reviews! But alas, this lube and I did not see eye to eye. We had different goals for our relationship; Toko Aqua wanted to lube up my entire bedroom and never be tasted, I wanted an all-purpose lube to take to college. We're still on speaking terms, but I feel it's best for me to put it in the 'friend zone' for now.

    Great review, I hate lubes with a bad taste. You should include the full list of ingredients so people know what they are getting.
