Edible body painting by Shunga Erotic Art - review by (k)InkyIvy

Caught my partner trying to drink it!

I love this stuff! It's delicious and adds a little extra pleasure to foreplay and oral. I wholeheartedly suggest buying it! The Pros FAR outweigh the Cons with this product, and it's totally worth the price!
Sturdy bottle, subtle appearance, tastes and smells great, easy to clean up
Gets sticky, leaves residue, requires reapplication, really crappy paint brush, a bit pricey
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This product is an edible body treatment, also known as a body topping or body paint. It's really great for foreplay or oral sex because you can paint it onto your partner's body wherever you want to lick. I think the tickling sensation of the brush and the suspense of knowing what is coming makes this product even more arousing. According to the label, this is not only body paint, but can also be used for skin care and as a face mask. I'm not sure if I'd put this stuff on my face, but it does leave skin soft and smelling nice. Because this is a somewhat thick liquid with a tendency to get sticky after a few minutes, I wouldn't suggest trying to use it as lube for vaginal or anal penetration.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is a somewhat thick, sticky substance, similar to chocolate syrup. It is relatively smooth, but does have a little (as in barely noticeable) gritty texture to it that I really only noticed when I was rubbing it in between my fingers. It is thin enough to drip if there's a lot in one area (like on the paint brush), but thick enough that it's not really runny. I did notice as I was painting it onto my hand (to demonstrate how it looks) that when I tilted my hand, the paint gathered at the lowest point of the line. I also noticed that the longer the paint sits on the skin, the thicker it gets. I guess after it's applied (or painted on) to the skin, it begins to congeal.

Taste / Aroma

This product smells like white chocolate and vanilla, which makes sense since that's what flavor it is. When licked off, it leaves a faint vanilla scent with a hint of chocolate on the skin. The taste reminds me of sugar cookies with vanilla icing. When smelling directly from the bottle, it does have a strong scent, but not unpleasantly so. It's just strong enough that it's easily noticeable, and considering it's such an appealing scent, that's a good thing.

    • Tastes good


While this product is deliciously lickable, it also doesn't last long and has a tendency to get sticky. We discovered that you have to reapply it every few minutes during oral sex to maintain flavoring. Also, if you're painting on other parts of the body, you will need a damp cloth to wipe down the area once you've decided to move on to another area or to a different activity. It does clean up rather easily, so a quick wipe with the damp cloth should remove most (if not all) of the body paint. The paint brush is a horribly cheap little thing, literally nothing more than a pointed bit of foam tied around a very thin dowel. It's difficult to clean and even more difficult to paint anything decent with. Users would be much better off going to a local crafts store and simply buying a thin paint brush to use with this body paint instead of struggling with the one provided.

This product comes in a 3.5 fluid ounce round glass bottle with a square base. The bottle itself is about 3.5 inches from side to side, 4.5 inches from top to bottom, and 1 inch from front to back. The cap is a black plastic twist-off with a decoratively tiered top. The glass is thick enough that there is no worry of it breaking or cracking unless it gets dropped on a tile floor or something equally hard. And even then, I'm not sure it would break. The only thing there is other than the bottle is a little plastic collar that goes around the neck of the bottle. The paint brush is stuck through a couple of holes in this plastic to hold it in place with the bottle. Other than that, there is no box or carton of any sort. The bottle and "brush" arrived in a tied clear plastic bag, which EF does with all fluids in case of leakage.

Special Features

It's edible. That's really all there is to this stuff. It's tasty, which would make oral sex more enjoyable for someone who's not a big fan. The fact that it tastes good also makes it really nice for foreplay.
Supposedly it's also an aphrodisiac, but I can't confirm or deny the accuracy of that. I mean, who doesn't get turned on from licking sweet stuff off of their lover's body?

Personal comments

Extra notes:
-This product (in the Vanilla & Chocolate temptation flavor) is a creamy white color.
-"Shunga" is a Japanese term for erotic art, usually displaying lovemaking of some sort.


I really wasn't sure about this stuff when I first received it. I'd ordered a different flavor, and by some fluke, received the Vanilla & Chocolate Temptation instead. I was really deterred by the color (creamy white) so I figured I'd keep it long enough to write a review, then find a friend who wanted it. I opened the bottle, shook a little onto my finger, and tasted it. Oh, sweet deliciousness! Forgive me for doubting you! Yeah, I was totally shocked by how good this stuff tastes! I ended up putting a drop on my fingertip several times throughout the day because it was just so tasty that I wanted more. When my partner came home, I insisted that he try it too. He was a bit incredulous because he's not a big fan of sugary stuff. I finally convinced him to try it, and even HE loved it! (I caught him trying to drink it later that evening, when he thought I wasn't paying attention)

We decided to use it for oral sex, my partner being on the receiving end. I took the paint brush (note to self- find a better paint brush) and began painting little lines all over his shaft. He said that it was very arousing because of the tickling sensation, and because he knew I'd be licking off each line and swirl shortly. Once I was satisfied that I'd applied enough of the body paint, I went to work removing it all via fellatio. The product definitely served the intended purpose, to make everything taste better during oral sex. On the down side, because this body paint is so tasty, it increases salivation. It also doesn't last long, and after a few minutes, become sticky. So, we applied more and went back to it. After we were finished, he told me that there was a sticky residue on his genitals, left behind by the body paint. I went and got a damp cloth for him, which turned out to be all he needed for sufficient cleanup.

I didn't notice whether or not the body paint made me more aroused. There is something wonderfully intimate about having your lover's rapt attention as you paint on them for the sole purpose of licking it back off. So I couldn't honestly tell you whether it was the experience or the product that turned me on more.
Follow-up commentary
We still love this body paint! It's just so delicious and fun to use! The crappy paint brush was easy enough to replace with something more manageable. We've been contemplating getting a few different flavors, just so we have a few more options!
