This really does work to prolong erections, just make sure that you let the balm absorb in to the male before using the erection. It also works great to desensitize for inserting large anal toys.

Shunga Exotic Arts sensations balm
Blazing Cherry


This is used to help desensitize the man’s penis for extra play time. It is best used when the penis is mostly erect and rubbed into the head and shaft of the penis. The benzocaine in the balm is the desensitizing agent and it really does work in this balm. Be sure to let it absorb into the penis before you use the penis or both partners may end up becoming numb. Also let it absorb before giving any oral services or you will numb your throat. This one numbs so well that I would use it for a sore throat! The numbing of the penis is to increase the time of play before the dang thing goes off!

This also works very well as a desensitizer for anal play if you experience discomfort and want to get yourself used to anal this may help. It also helps to try to get larger sized anal toys into place.


The balm is about the consistency of a warm jelly. It is slightly sticky but that goes away without the sensation of having to clean up. It is absorbed into the skin nicely with only a slight residue remaining. When you dip your finger into the jar the balm will stay on your finger, it doesn’t drip. It also doesn’t run.


This balm really does work, It numbs the penis allowing the user to maintain the erection longer. Only a small amount is needed to achieve it’s purpose a dab about the size of a pea will work on the head and starting down the penis. We were able to prolong our lovemaking session for at least another 10 minutes or so. ( I couldn’t tell him I kept peeking at the clock!!)


As it does taste bad it tastes better than the sta-hard version of the numbing agents, I would not say that it tastes good and it does numb my tongue from placing a fingertip in the jar and then on my tongue. It smells good like a strong cherry medication. The benzocaine doesn’t taste good in any products.


The main ingredient is benzocaine 7.5 % which is pretty standard percentage of numbing agent in this type of product. It is the same amount in the cherry sta-hard. Benzocaine is also included in several over the counter sore throat products.

A note on Parabens: The Parabens are commonly found in most cosmetics, shampoo’s, lubes, toothpaste. Parabens are man made preservatives. They are used to fight bacterial and fungus. Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to contribute to the development of breast cancers. According to the FDA’s web site “Parabens are safe as used in cosmetics, They are safe in levels of up to 25%, Typically parabens are used at levels ranging from 0.01 to 0.3%”.

Glycerine is a sugar and may cause some women to develop UTI’s and Yeast infections. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients be sure to not use it.


The balm comes in a 2 ounce jar. It has a clear plastic overlay over the balm so it doesn’t spill out when you open the lid. The jar is black in color and the shunga logo is on the front of it. It really isn’t discreet.
Follow-up commentary
This one really isn't doing it for us, It worked well initially but then it failed. It does work great for rubbing on tooth aches though. The taste is actually not bad.

    Thanks for the review I have some of this somewhere or I did. I got it when I was a pleasure party consultant. You can use it for toothaches as well works just like Orajel but better. Also, if you have a gag reflex you can rub some in the back of your throat with a q-tip to numb your throat. I never used it myself for anything it was for "show & tell" purposes at parties. I wouldn't recommend using it to numb the anal area, I was always taught you want to feel what is going on when it comes to anal that if it hurts to stop! Numbing can cause you not to feel the pain, just my 2 cents on that part. Great review as always

    Thanks for the review! Cherry medication tastes totally foul to me, so I think I'll be passing on this one. Good to know that it actually works, though!

    I agree with *Camoprincess* about recommending it as a numbing agent for anal use. I have always been told the same thing= not to use any type of numbing stuff due to the possibility of injury occurring,. Just my thoughts too!
    I have the massage cream from this company and I love it!! Just got it and got a back rub out of it last night...awesome!!!!
    Thanks for the review..this might have to go on my wishlist!!
