Numb Down Below!

The Shunga Sensations Balm has a really strong (not very appetizing) smell, a funky taste, and numbs your tongue, but all in all I am in love with this product! It made our intimate moments so much more fun!
Definitely did it's job,
Strong smell.

Numbs the tongue
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This product is used to "desensitize" the penis, so sex can last a little bit longer. It is 7.5% Benzociane, which is the same ingredient that is used in tooth numbing products. As in all "numbing" products, this does not last forever.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The Sensations Balm is a thick jell. You can't pour it. You have to use your finger to apply it to the areas you wish to desensitize. It was thick, but could easily be spilled. It was smooth and almost like a soft pudding texture (as weird as that sounds)

I noticed that once it dried on his skin or absorbed into his skin, it felt normal. Not oily, sticky or anything like that, which was a bonus.

Taste / Aroma

Smell: The first thing I noticed when I opened this product was the horrible smell. We got the Cherry flavored one and it seriously smelled like that nasty cherry cough syrup my mother gave me as a child. When a small amount was taken out of the jar, it smelled a lot better. But in the jar is smells TERRIBLE.

Taste: I wasn't brave enough to taste it but my husband said it also tasted like horrible Cherry cough syrup. I will not be tasting this anytime soon. He also said his tongue went numb fairly quickly after tasting it.
    • Bad smell
    • Strong smell


Step one: apply to penis.
Step two: Wait for it to dry, or everything it touches will be numbed as well.

You don't need to use very much of this product at all to get good results! As long as the penis is covered. And with a very thin layer of the Sensations Balm so it can dry.

I noticed that our sex lasted a lot longer than normal. It definitely numbed him, but he could still feel what was going on. It doesn't last too terribly long, but it definitely does it's job. I noticed he was also a little bit more rough than usual.

When the balm was starting to wear off, he said it felt a little bit tingly. Kind of like when your leg falls asleep and starts to wake up again.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural


The Sensations Balm comes in a small box. It is a short round tub of jell.

On the box it really doesn't say what it is, and on the product its self, it just says "Sensations Balm" and has a picture on it. I don't think anyone would really know what it was without asking you.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Does not leak
    • Travel friendly

Special Features

This really doesn't have any special features. It does exactly what it is designed to do! It numbs the penis for a longer intimacy time!

Personal comments

I personally think I have fallen in love with this product, regardless of it's strong odor and funky taste. My husband and I have had a problem with sex not lasting as long as we'd like it to, so this is really going to be a great thing to add to our collection! I am most certain I can get past the taste and smell issues for the awesome things it did for us!


My husband liked this product just as much as I did. I got to enjoy a longer sex time, and so did he. In his words "About 3 minutes after I applied it, you probably could have driven a nail through my penis and I wouldn't have been able to feel it". We had fun with this. I will be able to get past the gross smell and taste if it makes sex that much more enjoyable.

He's the one that picked it out, so I should give him some credit for this awesome find!

    Most numbing products say to wear a condom. I was wondering if this is one that you can use without one, or will it affect the woman's feeling/sensation.
