The dragon is just too much!

While the Dragon Cream has incredible fire and ice sensations, the extreme numbness we experience makes it hard to fully enjoy this. However, if you're looking to prolong ejaculation while you and your partner feel the cool and warm, this could be perfect. We love the Dragon Cream, but have to set aside for specific occasions such as long foreplay sessions so it has time to wear off before intercourse. It gets 4 stars as it's supposed to increase pleasure not totally diminish it.
Amazing sensations!
Not messy or sticky.
Can be used by male/female.
It does prolong ejaculation!
Can completely stop ejaculation in male and female.

extremely useful review


Shunga's Dragon Cream was designed for males, but can be used by females as well. The Dragon cream provides "fire and ice" sensations while also prolonging the male's orgasm to keep them going. This does work well (perhaps too well for some) for prolonging, but is awesome for the "fire and ice" sensations alone.

For males, the Dragon cream is to be applied onto the shaft and head of the penis. The fire sensation is what my partner notices first and the ice follows and they alternate throughout the duration of intercourse. This is marketed more toward a couple since it's designed to prolong, but when using just for the sensations alone, it can be used solo by a male or female. To make things even better, this is safe to use with toys!

The Dragon Cream works by giving the male a sort of numbing effect which in turn will make intercourse last longer as the male won't orgasm as quickly. In fact, this can have the same effect for women like myself.

It IS paraben free!

A little information about some of the ingredients:
-Hydrogenated Polyisobutene is a synthetic oil used as a mineral oil substitute. It's moisturizing and is often used as pigment dispursion in cosmetics. It is also used in waterproof SPFs because it retains SPF even with water exposure. According to, this ingredient is not likely to cause irritation.

-Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer is used to create a gel consistency.

-Propylene Glycol is thick, colorless and a sweet tasting liquid according to the dictionary. It is used in some products like deodorant, shampoos and more.

This ingredient can penetrate the skin and weaken protein and cellular structure. This stuff penetrate the skin so quickly that the "EPA warns factory workers to avoid skin contact, to prevent brain, liver, and kidney abnormalities!"

- Menthyl Lactate is a derivitive of menthol and is the ingredient used to create the cooling sensation in this product.

- Sucralose is Splenda.

- Vanillyl Butyl Ether is the ingredient that creates the warm sensation and it has a spicy taste.

Keep in mind this does contain glycerin so for those of you who are yeast infection or UTI prone, you might want to use with caution or avoid this product altogether.

Shunga has several products with the "fire and ice" sensations. They are intense, but if you are sensitive to other Shunga products that have these effects, this will likely be no different. I do recommend starting out with a very small amount as the intense sensations can come as a surprise and because the cream may prolong you or your partner's orgasm far longer than you'd like.

The Dragon cream is good for prolonging, but works nicely as an enhancer for solo play or foreplay as well. I actually prefer using this for foreplay rather than during intercourse as this doesn't just prolong both of our orgasms, but it totally stops them most of the time.

I would not recommend using this before oral sex. It does smell good enough to eat, but it's not edible! I probably would not use this for anal either due to the intense warm/cool sensations unless you are sure you want to get into that. I imagine it could be terribly uncomfortable though and you can't just rinse the inside of your rear with soap and water to remove.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Unlike a lubricant, the Dragon Cream is more like a cream. This water based cream is white and feels similar to a day cream (like a women's facial cream). It isn't as thick as most body lotions or creams and has a slightly runny texture. Not as runny as Liquid Silk or any lubricant I've used though. In better words, it has the consistency of something between a lubricant and a lotion. That's a nice in between since it won't drip right off your hand, but it's runny enough to spread easily. This does stay in place well so where ever you choose to put it, that's where you can expect it to hang out. It doesn't run to other parts of the body, but once you've dipped your dragon into your lover, they will feel it (the cream).

Dragon Cream is not something I'm used to, but I do like it for the most part. It's smooth and creamy! It's not as slippery as a massage oil or silicone based lubricant, but it has a decent amount of glide. It could work for a small back rub, but wouldn't hold up without absorbing for an actual massage.

While it isn't greasy and doesn't leave behind a greasy residue, it does leave your penis nice and shiny!

Taste / Aroma

While this is not an edible cream, I did take the pleasure of tasting it just to report back. It has a somewhat pleasant sweet taste, but it leaves a cool feeling on my tongue just like tooth paste. I'm not fond of that feeling in my mouth, but it doesn't bother me and it did not bother my partner.

The smell is what I first loved about the Dragon Cream. That strawberries and champagne scent of Shunga's, I just adore. It isn't strong or perfumey, but it's noticeable if your face is well, near the penis wearing it!

While we don't mind the taste, I would recommend using a wet washcloth to rub the majority of it off your genitals before oral sex. My partner certainly didn't mind the taste that was left behind on me, but it was only a very small amount.

The Dragon Cream is outstanding, an all around amazing and well constructed little cream. However, the prolonging part of this caused some pretty unpleasant problems for both myself and my partner. More on that in my experience section.

Performance wise, Dragon Cream is pretty heavy darn duty. It is designed to prolong the male and that, it does. Unfortunately, my experience is not only prolonged, but impossible with Dragon Cream in most cases. Again, more in my experience section.

The Dragon Cream has that wonderful "fire and ice" sensation. At first it's a warm sensation and then it's cool and after that it's kind of like "ok, my penis is hot and cold at the same time!" It's intense. My partner and I never experience a burn like some warming products cause, but a very warm sensation with a cool (think toothpaste) sensation to follow. It's a really incredible feeling and a unique one at that.

When applying two quarter sized amounts of cream to the penis, this will last for a good hour if not longer. In my partner's case, two quarter sized drops last for an hour and a half. (I get a little Dragon Cream happy sometimes). I learned the hard way that this cream is best use in moderation! The more you apply, the number you will go. It does numb like Shunga's Desensitizing Spray which contains 7.5% benzocaine per spray, but with too much it does create a sort of numbing effect. Using a small amount will still last you a good 30-40 minutes. If that's too much then a pea sized drop on the head of the penis only (or only on the shaft) will help the situation and allow you to have some feeling in your penis.

If you're like me, you might feel the urge to keep applying more to your partner's penis since this does absorb very quickly. When I apply this to my partner and massage it in for a minute, it dries up and I get this urge to use more. That is why this may not be the solution to your lubrication needs. We just have to use our favorite lubricant (Liquid Silk of course!) along with this instead.

It may absorb quickly, but there's no sticky or greasy residue left being and dry or not, you will feel the sensations! Another nice thing about this is it does slightly moisturize until it's washed away.

If at any time the Dragon Cream becomes too intense, it will subside by wiping away with a wet washcloth. However, you will certainly need a mini shower to totally remove the sensations. Without showering, I can still feel the warm/cool sensations for a couple of hours. Once that dies down I can't tell anything has been there. It leaves no sticky behind so I don't mind not showering right away. Like I said, it does leave your genitals shiny, but doesn't feel greasy.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water


The Dragon Cream comes in a cardboard box with lovely japanese art on the front. In the box is the 2 fl oz. of Dragon Cream and a leaflet with a small amount of info, but no instructions besides apply to genitals.

The box isn't obscene or vulgar, but reading the fine print will notify the reader that it's a product used for intercourse. This may or may not bother you. However, from someone who's used to tons of trashy, pornographic and down right disgusting packaging, this is the kind of packaging that I welcome! You can always toss the box. I did since it takes up more space than the little bottle of cream.

The cream comes in a small black container with a flip lid. For some strange reason, Shunga's packaging seems to always be "upside down" to me. Instead of having it packaged like a soap bottle where it stand on it's bottom and the lid is on top (do I make sense? Just look at the picture, it explains better). Anyways, the problem with these bottles is the product all runs to the bottom which is also where the lid is so when you go to use it most of the product often bubbles right out even when held with the lid facing up. Since the Dragon Cream is thicker than a typical water based lubricant, it doesn't run out as badly as some, but it is bothersome.

The little tube says Shunga Erotic Art. It also had a picture of a dragon and says Dragon Cream. Sitting in a crowd of other toiletries, this doesn't stand out and it doesn't scream "hey, I go on your penis!" With the dragon on it, it kind of reminds me of a men's aftershave. Possibly? Either way, it's small enough to tuck away in a drawer or purse. I've had no leakage, but it is possible. You can place the little tube in a sandwich bag for travel.

The container is easy to use though. Just simply hold it in your hand and use the same finger from that hand to snap the lid up, squirt into your other hand and apply to penis!
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense

Special Features

The Dragon Cream has an intense "fire and ice" thing going on. It alternates between cool and warm sensations all throughout intercourse, or whatever you happen to be using it for! It does not increase sensitivity, but instead it decreases it to allow the male to "perform longer". For females, it can have the same effect.
    • Cooling
    • Warming


Whew! My partner and I have a very unique experience when we use this. I love it very much, but I also hate it! I love most everything about it except for the part where it totally stops me from having an orgasm! My partner likes it, but it also stops his. Shunga's "fire and ice" apparently does this to us. Instead of prolonging it, it stops it. For others, it may not do that.

My partner does like the cream and the sensations, but by the time an hour and a half of intercourse passed, we were both exhausted and my back was killing me from being in the sex swing for way too long. In the beginning, I was able to have a mini O, but after that I was done for. It numbed the inside of my vagina and wouldn't allow much feeling at all in his penis.

However, it turns out the Dragon Cream lives in my basket of Shunga products! When applied to the clitoris for foreplay or toy play, it is amazing! If your foreplay lasts as long as ours does, this works out perfectly because by the time foreplay's over, the cream has had time to kind of wear off. Unfortunately, oral sex is off the menu for the night when we use this because it desensitizes my clitoris to where I cannot have an orgasm that way.

After several uses, my partner prefers only using a tiny drop on the shaft so that it doesn't totally numb him. We're just the kind of people who have to be careful when using the fire and ice products, but when we do it right, it is amazing! The warm and cool feeling on the clitoris is really nice and feels great with a powerful vibrator. It's intense on the labia, but a small amount adds a lot of extra sensation.
