Lubricant by Shunga Erotic Art

For natural contact...and not so natural contact (AKA toys!)

The name given to this lubricant is truly reflective of its performance. It provides you with a natural feeling of wetness that is enjoyably long-lasting. If you find that you have trouble with your own personal lubrication, this product will deliver. For all the use you can get out of this little bottle, the price is definitely worth it!
Safe for toys
Feels natural
Absorbs very nicely
Potentially messy if not careful
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This lubricant is a great choice for use during intercourse, masturbation, and with all toys. It is supposed to mimic a woman's natural lubrication, and it works well if you have trouble in that department, like I do. Although it is not all-natural, it has very few ingredients to contribute to a bad reaction unless you have an allergy to glycerin. In which case, you'll have to look elsewhere, I'm afraid. Due to the fact that it is water-soluble (dissolves in water), it is useless to use this in the shower/bath.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This water-based lubricant is silky smooth and completely clear. It is not thick, nor is it thin: it's a great in-between. A little bit goes a LONG way, and because it is slightly runny, you're going to have to be careful dispensing (especially in the heat of the moment). When I first used it, I tilted it ever so slightly, and still got a huge mess! Read my description under packaging where I will go into greater detail on that subject.

While feeling it between my fingers, there was an extremely mild stickiness to it, but it is in no way felt while on the genitals. And fear not -- it does not dry sticky at all, and it is not greasy. It absorbs into your tissue quite beautifully, in fact. Makes for a luxuriously sleek and comfortable experience without slipping all over the place!

There are only 6 ingredients as verified by the back of the bottle: Water (aqua), glycerin, propylene glycol, polyquaternium-7, methylparaben, propylparaben. So, it is not all natural, but at the same time is very basic and should cause no negative reactions unless you have issues with glycerin.

Taste / Aroma

There is no taste or aroma to this lube, it is completely unscented. I did not taste this, however, and I don't see why you would want to.
    • No smell


Natural Contact is a basic lubricant, no bells and whistles, but I was still impressed. No washing off is required because it absorbs nicely into your skin and leaves you feeling naturally moisturized. Like I said, a little bit goes a long way, so when I ended up with an excess, I just slathered it all on my toy and it made for a much more pleasant experience than I have had in the past with other lubricants. It's so good that "warming up" is not required. If you're in a rush, after applying this lubricant you are good to go. I got a good 20-something minutes before beginning to feel some dryness inside. I have trouble with my own natural lubrication, so if this is not a concern for you, you will probably get much more time out of it than I did. Although it absorbed quickly internally, externally I was still wet for long after, and I even felt moisturized in the morning after.

This lubricant did not stain any clothes or sheets, and it was very easy to wash off of my toys because it is water-soluble.

The packaging in which this lubricant comes in is clear plastic bottle with a black plastic top. When you receive this product in its brand-new state, you will have to remove the black plastic top to remove the seal atop the bottle itself. It was perfectly intact when I received mine from EF. I did however have trouble when I poured this out for the first time, because it was filled to the brim. Even though I tipped it only ever so slightly, it came gushing out. This problem makes it unideal if you are trying to use it during the heat of the moment. My recommendation to you is that you do not open the top the entire way, and pour very slowly. Or (and I wish I had of thought of this sooner): instead of completely removing the seal the bottle, you might be able to get away with making a smaller sized hole through it so that it does not gush when you go to use it.

This bottle is super cute in my opinion. I love the art on the front, but it is definitely not discrete. The back of the label states: "Exclusively formulated to emulate natural lubrication and facilitate penetration, this ultra-silky personal lubricant enhances bodily sensations during moments of intense sexual excitement." It warns you that it is "not a spermicide or contraceptive," and to discontinue use immediately if irritation occurs. The information is repeated underneath in French, below that it lists the ingredients, and then the company's copyright/information. All-in-all, it's not super informative, but I suppose you don't really need much more than that.

    • Not discreet

Special Features

This product is water-based, water-soluble, latex-compatible, and petroleum-free. It is also ideal for use with toys. No special effects, though it claims to enhance sensations while you are excited (but not particularly your sensitivity level) during intercourse due to how pleasurable of an experience it provides.

Personal comments

Over all, I'm very pleased with this product. Because it is intended for both intercourse and use with toys, and along with the fact that a little bit goes a very long way, I foresee getting tons of use out of this product. Even after my mishap during first application, the bottle still looks full. I'm only subtracting a star because of the bottle and issue with dispensing, otherwise, this product lives up to its claims.

If you are considering this product now, just go for it. I highly recommend it.
Follow-up commentary
I'm still really enjoying this lube, and my opinion has not changed whatsoever. It feels absolutely wonderful, and I love how such a small amount goes a very long way. I won't have to buy a new one any time soon. Dispensing isn't quite as messy as it was with the first few uses, so I haven't wasted too much product since then. It still looks barely used, and for that, I am very much pleased.

If you are in need of a new lubricant, definitely give this Shunga product a try!
