It Only LOOKS like Blood.

This really is an "eye of the beholder" item. Those who enjoy the vampire play, or erotic writing and drawing will enjoy it, but for others it'll be a waste of money. Best to buy only if already interested in body paint.
Great for vampire enthusiasts.
Excellent for Halloween costumes.
Bright and easy to see.
Bland flavor.

extremely useful review


Are you infatuated with Marceline? Have you ever wanted to lick Lestat? Do the words “scrape and lick” cause you to quiver uncontrollably? If so, you’re part of the accidental demographic for this product: vampire fetishists. Between True Blood, the Vampire Vagrants Power Hour and Dracala’s Sex Talk with Dracala, sexualizing vampires is clearly at or near its zenith and this is perfect for taking role play to the next level.

Now, instead of pretending a partner is bleeding when bitten, or suffering through the bitter taste of real blood, or worse, fake blood, there’s Shunga’s Strawberry and Champagne Body Paint.

Shunga body paint is an erotic plaything for couples to explore their bodies with their taste buds and imagination. It can be used by couples of any type, as long as they’re not allergic, for drawing, painting, writing or engaging in spontaneous mathematics using their lover as a canvass. It could also be devoured alone, but that just seems like a waste given the mediocre flavor, to be discussed later. Seriously, if you’re eating this out of the jar alone, just buy some candy.

Another use is as costume blood. The dark red coloring shown here is quite similar to blood and could make an excellent fake blood come Halloween. If this is purchased and isn’t used up by Halloween, keep it in mind, because between zombies, vampires, stab victims, or sexy blood monsters.

There are allergy issues to be discussed. The ingredients are
Sugar (sucrose), Water, Cacao (cocoa), Citric acid, Salt (sodium chloride), Potassium sorbate, Vanillin.

None of ingredients are strawberries, so those with a strawberry allergy might be able to use this without problem, but consider if it’s worth the risk. Further, one of the ingredients is Cacoa, or cocoa, so those with chocolate allergies should not use this. Finally avoid shower use, as this washes off too quickly for anything sensual.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Based on the previous picture, the texture should be relatively easy to determine. It’s a medium level of thickness, not gelatinous, or inflexible, but not runny either. Dripping is likely, but at a slower clip than a thinner liquid.

The thickness is perfect for writing, similar to using an old quill pen or calligraphy set. What’s written or drawn is not limited by the paint, only by imagination… and proper application of the ink to the brush. Too much paint on the brush will glob the letters together, while too little makes writing thin and cracked.

Sucrose in the paint indicates that there will be stickiness and experience bears out the hypothesis. It’s slightly sticky, not enough to attract anything more than dust and cat hair, nor is it noticeable after a few moments of drying. The greater problem is the bright red splotches it leaves.

Be careful with the bottle as the liquid is thin enough to spill out. The good people at Shunga include a paintbrush for a reason, emptying it out haphazardly will result in spills and stains. These stains look similar to blood to the naked eye, so keep it away from stainable materials, especially anything white.

Taste / Aroma

The flavor is strong, but not of strawberries, rather it’s reminiscent of stale, candy apple coating, with the champagne flavor giving it an effervescent aftertaste. Combining the two flavors tastes almost like candy apple Nyquil. Personally, the flavor wasn’t repulsive, it was simply too sweet at first, before quickly becoming bland.
    • Light smell
    • Strong taste


Most of the performance has already been addressed. The consistency is thick enough to remain on the body without dripping too much, the taste is decent and the texture was peasant. There are however cleanup and safety concerns that must be addressed.

To begin, unless the partner is a lickitung, licking is not enough to remove the paint and improper cleanup leaves behind a bright red residue. This residue is not only uncomfortably sticky, but if not washed off, it will cause an itchy rash that lasts about 3 days.
Consult the picture below.

This is the residue after some licking, clearly not enough to remove the pain in its entirety. Given this, the paint should be removed, after use of course, a wipe, wash cloth with soap and water or, preferably, a shower. Even with showers though, there are some body parts that are simply incompatible.

Specifically this should not be used for cunnilingus! As mentioned, glucose, or sugar, is a key ingredient, which is connected to yeast infections. Placing the body paint around the vagina may cause yeast infections or possible allergic reactions, at least. Without a medical degree, or advanced study, I cannot say for certain if other problems are possible, but is it worth the risk?

Also, I can’t imagine many people would find red body paint along the vagina walls to be appealing. Although what’s sexier for roleplay with Nosferatu than earning his red batwings. …moving on.

The penis, less prone to infection, may be more compatible with the paint, allowing for use during oral sex. Again, the knowledge of use on genitals is incomplete, so caution is the best course of action. A thorough cleaning should be undertaken afterwards however, to prevent the aforementioned rashes.
    • Allergy concerns
    • Gets sticky
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water


The jar as designed is rather neat, looking like a combination of a genie’s bottle and perfume bottle.

The brush meanwhile, both paints well, although it tends to glob and looks cool, almost like the brush from Super Mario Sunshine. Between the jar and brush, the set was clearly designed to mirror a calligraphy set and does so quite well.

The only problem with discretion is the label, which extols its virtues as "erotic art" ad "body paint." Once emptied and the label is removed, it'd make a wonderful jar for storage, or perhaps sand sculptures.

    Great review! I'm a little worried that I'm not going to like the taste of this. I might get the chocolate instead. Thanks for all the details! I found your review really helpful.

    Oh, gosh. Thanks for the warning about this one staining. I was going to buy it, but not if it does that. XD I'll pick a different flavor.

    "Unless the partner is a lickitung." I loved this line alone, but also the incredible review. Thank you for taking me back to the days of Pokemon, and thank you for this review.
