Intimate kisses aphrodisiac oil by Shunga Erotic Art - review by js250

The Grape Ape Has Arrived....

The thick, slippery oil feels wonderful during the massage and when the warming effect comes into play--it really turns a basic massage into a sensual experience. Just plan on making a shower afterward part of your seductive evening due to the stickiness left behind on your skin. The flavors and aromas are very well done, at least the two we have are, and there is a large enough variety for everyone's happiness.
Slick, smooth oil.
Sticky residue.
Shower recommended.

extremely useful review


Intimate Kisses Oil is a nice, thick oil that is wonderful for massages, sensory teasing with your partner and can even be used creatively in certain solo situations. The warming effect is a nice but subtle addition that adds to your experience. I did not notice any aphrodisiac effects other than the obvious.

This oil is nice and thick which works very well for massages. A small amount, the size of a quarter, will massage my back and a tiny bit more will cover my husband's back. The tasting and licking, especially along the spine, is delicious and will definitely get the desired reactions. The glide is slick and smooth and the oil spreads over the skin nicely. There is a bit of a sticky feeling that is unpleasant, but it also opens the doors for one sexy shower.

Tease each other and massage some oil into your partner's nipples, lower stomach, inner thighs and other appropriate erogenous zones. Add a small breath to activate the warming sensation and see where this will lead!! This contains Glycerin--a product that can create an allergic reaction.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Intimate Kisses Oil is very thick but is easily poured from the container. It feels very slick and smooth when you are massaging it into your partner's skin and creates a smooth glide. There is a sticky feeling that is left behind that does not seem to go away. It does not feel like this oil absorbs into your skin as much as it creates a sticky film on the skin's surface.

The flavor will last through a 20 minute massage and the aroma is on the skin for about 45 minutes after applying. It might last a bit longer, but we just had to shower and remove the film on our backs. The slight warming sensation is very subtle on most of your skin. When it is applied on sensitive areas like nipples or penis shaft, you do feel it kick in a bit more. This is a fun teaser, just make sure that you have no reactions to the glycerin.

Taste / Aroma

The Grape oil tastes like a liquid form of grape bubble gum. It has a strong, artificial grape aroma that permeates the room within a minute or two. I find it a bit overwhelming, but my husband loves it. I dislike grape intensely and got this with my husband in mind.

The Chocolate oil was my personal choice, and though it has a chocolate like flavor, it reminds me of an off tootsie roll instead of a truffle or chocolate candy. The aroma is delicious but the flavor is definitely an artificial chocolate flavoring. This aroma also permeates the room rapidly.
    • Light taste
    • Strong smell


The longevity of the oil was perfect for a sensual and teasing massage. I was able to really work on my husband's back muscles before taking the massage to a more....sensual level. The flavor does not last as long as a basic massage, but that was not too much of an issue.

I had a serious issue with the sticky film this oil left on my skin. It was very unpleasant and unclean feeling and my husband also felt the same way. Granted, we got to continue our fun, sensual play in the shower but it did kind of interrupt the flow of the seduction.

This oil does wash off with soap and water and the aroma fades to almost nothing. My skin did not feel any softer when we were done with our showers either. I did notice that no sheets or towels were stained after washing them in the washer.

These are nice oils, but are just too much for my personal taste. I prefer lighter, more absorbent massage oils that do not leave a sticky sensation. The warming was nice but not very obvious, except in areas I was not comfortable using a warming product. I have reactions to these types of products when they are used on my personal areas.
    • Allergy concerns
    • Gets sticky
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water


The packaging is very nice and can be used after the oil is gone. The Intimate kisses Oil is packaged in a round, cardboard cylinder that has metal endcaps. The surface of the cylinder is shiny, black and has the 'Shunga' logo complete with the sexual picture of two oriental people in the midst of passion. This is not a very discreet item, so gift giving is up to you.

The glass bottle is nicely shaped and has a 'cork' in the top. This looks very pretty and is brightly colored due to the oil inside. I removed the decal off the bottle and kept it on my dresser.
    • Does not leak
    • Not discreet
Follow-up commentary
This oil is nice, smells good and stays in place nicely due to its thickness. I hate taking a shower after every use, though, and have other oils that work a bit better.

The warming effects are nice but very subtle and since I cannot use this on myself--it will last a while. The glycerin is just too much for my sensitive skin to handle, my husband has no such issues.
