Shunga exotic massage oil-Fuzzy Peaches

Shunga exotic massage oil by Shunga Erotic Art is a brilliant sensual product. I’m an amateur masseuse, and this is definitely one of the better oils I have managed to get my paws on! It currently comes in nine different scents, however my review is on the Peach.

The peach scent is very sweet, almost candy-like, but not sickeningly so. It reminds me of Fuzzy Peaches with a very light floral undertone. After a few minutes, the sweetness dies down and it becomes much more faint and subtle. You almost have to have your nose against the skin to smell it at all ten minute after application, which is a good thing, as my Sir apparently doesn’t appreciate smelling like candy! There’s no aftertaste to the oil either, so licking over the areas you’ve just massaged is still on the menu.

The bottle is clear with a black flip-up top, and the front has an erotic Nishiki-e (gorgeous style of Asian woodcut printing) print of a couple having sex, with the woman seated in the man’s lap. I think the bottle would probably not raise any eyebrows if someone gave it a quick glance, but if they picked it up to get a better look at the picture it could make for an awkward conversation. I would suggest keeping it tucked away from visiting relatives or friends! The lid seems to hold up well and hasn’t leaked in my toy box, but if you were traveling with it, I would probably put it in a plastic bag just to be safe. The back of the bottle has a quick description of the oil in multiple languages as well as the ingredients, which are: Sweet Almond Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Sesame Oil, Avocado Oil, Safflower Oil, Vitamin E, Ylang Ylang, Fragrance. You get 8 oz. of product, and even with the half dozen or so massages I have given since I got it, there’s still more than 3/4ths of a bottle left, so it’s a very generous size.

The consistency is just about perfect. It’s not too thick or gloopy and it’s not overly watery. I usually pour out a palm full (a highly technical measurement, I know) and rub it between my hands to warm it before pouring it onto my partner’s back. I found that it didn’t leave skin feeling overly greasy during the massage, it just enhanced sensations and reduced the drag of my hands. I also didn’t need to keep constantly re-applying the oil during the massages, which usually lasted 15-25 minutes. It doesn’t take too much oil to make skin pleasantly slick, just make sure you don’t put too much on, or it won’t absorb properly into the skin. However, if you do have too much oil, you can always wipe it away with a cloth once the massage is finished or go hop in the shower with your partner to rinse off.

This product is worth investing in if you like nicely scented massage oils that aren’t overpowering and last well. I’m lusting after the other eight scents right now, and really wish that Shunga offered a sample pack of all the different oils. I’m also going to be checking out more of their products in the future, and will be buying more of this oil when I eventually run out!

I give it 5 paws up out of five!

Sweet Beauty Chocolate Body Cream

Mmm, chocolate. One of my all time favourite indulgences. Milk, dark, I’m not picky, just as long as you don’t try to foist any of that white chocolate nonsense on me. (It’s not really chocolate anyhow!) When I was offered some of the Sweet Beauty Chocolate Body Cream from Babeland, I was all over the chance to use a body product that has real chocolate in it!

The Sweet Beauty Chocolate Body Cream is a really thick body cream. The base to the cream is a cocoa butter, and I’d consider it more of a body butter than a cream, really. (If I hold the pot upside down, it’s so thick it won’t spill out, which to me equals body butter.) It contains 100% natural ingredients, including organic, fair trade-certified chocolate (nom!).

The full ingredient list is: distilled water, grape seed oil, shea butter oil, capuacu butter and babassu seed oil infused with organic fair trade cocoa and nibs, cocoa absolute, vegetable emulsifying wax, glycerin, stearic acid, natural chocolate flavor oil, honeysuckle extract, citric acid.

All ingredients are natural and sourced responsibly, so this is something you can gift to friends who are eco-sensitive and who prefer fair trade goods! Because there’s no preservatives, this cream has a 6 month shelf life, and should be stored in a cool and dry place. You can buy it in a 2 oz. container for $8 or an 8 oz. container for $20. I know it may seem a bit steep, but it’s definitely worth the splurge (and this is coming from a cheap/poor student!).
You’re probably wondering how this stuff works. Ridiculously well is the answer. The cream is really heavy, and it moisturizes nicely. After using it for a month, my elbows no longer have the icky rough feeling leftover from the winter. I use it sparingly, and while it does take some extra work to rub in completely, I am not left with a sticky or greasy feeling on my skin. I’ve also used it on my face without having any issues with break outs!

Also, I smell freaking delicious when I wear this! The lotion actually smells like chocolate to me, and I’ve had several of my friends threaten to lick me (This is how we learned that while the cream isn’t edible, it doesn’t taste terrible if you accidentally get some in your mouth.) when I go out after putting some of the Chocolate Body Cream on. It’s definitely not a dark chocolate scent…more of a milk chocolate with some nuttiness to it.

Random side note: The label calls the little pot of lotion a ‘Pot de crème’ which makes my little linguaphile heart happy. ‘Pot de crème’ (pronounced POH-d?-krem) is a cooking term, and it refers to a type of custard!

Wet Naturals Silky Supreme

Wet Naturals Silky Supreme is a silicone based lube. It’s ridiculously slick, lasts a decent amount of time, and washes off with soap and water. It’s a perfect lube for using in the shower…there’s nothing worse than trying to have some wet fun only to discover that the lube has washed off by the time you’re ready to play.

The ingredient list is: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Cyclomethicone, Phenyl trimethicone, Tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E acetate)

Of these, only the Vitamin E is a natural ingredient. Vitamin E is thought to soothe irritated skin, while also being an antioxidant. The others are all silicone derivatives.

But wait. Doesn’t the label say it’s a natural lube? Natural Silicone? I asked my girlfriend (and resident hippie adviser), Haiku, if there was such a thing as “natural silicone anything”. Her reply was “Only if they are ethically raising and killing aliens to make it.” The conversation quickly went downhill from there.

So. I am going pretend to overlook the false advertising on the label, and try to review this as thought it’s any other silicone lube.

The packaging on this lube is fairly discrete. It’s a clear bottle with a purple fliptop lid, and the label on the front has a purple flower on it. While it does have the Wet logo on the front, it doesn’t say anything about sex or lube. If I didn’t know better, it could be mistaken for a bottle of hair or bath product.

The consistence of the Silky Supreme is very thin…slightly thicker than water, but not by much. It’s extremely slippery, and the slickness lasts fairly well. I have used it for anal play, and I found that the it started feeling a bit sticky after 20 minutes or so, and needed to be re-applied. I also noticed that when I used this experimentally (I don’t normally use lube for regular vaginal sex or for toys, as I get pretty wet on my own.) as a lube for vaginal sex, the lube ended up mixing with my come and making weird little balls. It wasn’t uncomfortable, just…odd and no longer slick. It did wash off with soap and water, though. There’s no scent or taste to this lube, but I wouldn’t be entirely comfortable switching between a handjob to a blowjob while using this lube.

If you are looking for a truly natural lube, I recommend checking out the Sliquid line, especially Sliquid Sea (with awesome seaweed-y goodness in it!) or any of the Sliquid organics.

Thanks for letting me review this lube, MyPleasure! I give it three slick paws up our of five.

Kama Sutra’s Honey Dust

Now, I normally don’t bother with cute ‘foreplay’ type items or things like whipped cream and sprinkes or honey (Seriously, have you actually brought that stuff into your bed? It gets everywhere, and I have it on good authority from one of my friends that if you get honey in your hair, it takes no less than 3 washings to make the sticky clumps go away.). But, Kama Sutra has a reputation for making good stuff, and I love the taste of strawberries, so I thought I’d give this a try when TabuToys offered me a chance to review their Strawberry Honey Dust.

The Lust Dust came in a large tin that is 4 inches in diameter and 4.5 inches wide-about the size of one of those big cans of tomato sauce (sexy comparison, I know, but hey, it works!). The tin is elegant looking, and the main colour is a medium green with a gold overlay. While I’m not sure if the pattern is actually Indian, I could definitely see this as the pattern on a gorgeous sari. I think that you could leave the tin out in your bedroom without raising too many eyebrows. It actually fits in well with the colour scheme in my bedroom, so I have mine on my dresser.

The powder itself is very light. It makes me think of powdered (icing/confectioners) sugar, or maybe flour that’s be well sifted. It’s soft, fluffy, and isn’t clumpy at all. The Strawberries and Champagne powder has been tinted a soft pink, more like a pastel baby’s blanket colour than Pepto Bismal.

The powder itself is made from a cornstarch base with the addition of glucose, honey, flavor, silica,saccharin and colors/dyes. You’ll want to avoid getting this near your/your partner’s pussy, as the sugars in it can (and probably will) cause a yeast infection. It’s gluten and paraben free, so if you or your partner have allergies to them, this dust won’t give you a bad reaction!

Other than that? It performs just like any corn starch powder. It applies easily and doesn’t make you feel like a powdered doughnut unless you manage to put way too much on. A light dusting leaves you feeling silky smooth, keeps you dry, smells lightly of strawberries and is absolutely lick-able and kissable. There is a slight chalky taste and feel, but it only happens if you absolutely douse yourself or your partner with this.

The taste…really isn’t that bad. I almost expected it to be a sickly sweet ‘candy’ type flavour, but no. It’s definitely sweet and strawberry, but I didn’t find that it was horribly artificial or overly sweet (especially in the small amounts you’ll be using!).

The feather duster included with the kit is nice, but I’m a bit iffy about feathers. I would have liked to have known how they were sourced, and how Kama Sutra cleaned them before they made them into a duster. My cat, on the other hand, has no such qualms, and has stolen it as her new favourite toy ever. I bought a large poofy blush brush from my local drug store for a few dollars, and use that instead for application. It works just as well, probably even better. I found dipping the brush into the powder, then tapping some of the excess dust off before applying it to skin worked best so I didn’t end up with too much.

Ingredient list: Corn Starch Modified, Glucose, Zea Mays (corn) Starch, Honey, Flavour, Silica, Sodium Saccharine, Sodium Benzoate, Red 33, Red 40

Overall, this is an excellent kit for a bit of tasty foreplay! I give it 4 strawberry scented paws up out of 5!

Lelo’s Flickering Touch Massage Oil in Spicy Clove & Amber

I have a massage oil addiction. Sure, I have the excuse that my partner has really dry skin and loves massages. And that I’m an amateur masseuse. But I’m always on the look out for my new ‘best massage oil ever’, and there are at least a dozen bottles of various brands and scents in my house at any one time. Adultsensations.com sent me Lelo’s Flickering Massage Oil to review, and I was hoping to have yet another oil to fall in love with!

Lelo is a fairly well known brand of luxury sex toy makers. While I don’t currently own any of their toys, I’ve heard good things about several of their toys, especially the Ella. I had hoped that the quality would also translate over into their massage oils, and I was in luck!

The packaging for the Flickering Touch oil was lovely. The box was black, with elegant embossed writing on it. I love minimalistic looking packaging, and this was gorgeous and very classy looking. There isn’t anything on the box that would make this ‘inappropriate’ (read as: screams “I bought this from a sex toy shop”) to give to someone at a wedding shower or as a gift in public. The bottle was nestled securely inside the box, and I didn’t have any issues with it leaking during transport. I suppose you could keep the box to store your oil in, but I think the bottle is lovely and looks pretty sitting out, so I recycled mine instead.

The bottle is really pretty. To me it looks a lot like a higher end perfume bottle, and I keep mine out, and it definitely doesn’t look out of place beside my perfume collection. It’s black glass, and the writing is gold paint, which stands out nicely. The top of the bottle is interesting looking. The orange ‘lid’ is a hard plastic or possibly acrylic circle. The colour changes depending on the scent of the massage oil. It has to be pulled off in order for the pump dispenser to be pushed, so you don’t accidentally get massage oil all over everything.

The pump dispenser works well. I didn’t feel as though I got too much oil per pump, and I needed about two pumps of oil to get enough for a decently slick back massage. The oil is a very light and (as oil tends to be) is very runny. Be careful pouring this onto your partner’s back, as it may decide not to pool conveniently and run over their sides. It will stain fabric, so putting down an old towel before you start your massage will keep you from worrying about ruining your sheets or blanket.

The oil lasts a decent amount of time, but I found that the initial few minutes of use left my hands feeling slightly sticky or gummy. Once I worked past that, it was smooth and slick, and my hands glided over my partners skin without any issues. It also does take a bit of time for the oil to sink in, so this isn’t the oil to grab if you just want to do a quick massage and then throw some clothes on. Take your time and enjoy this one!

The ingredient list is short and full of things I recognize:
Apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, perfume There are also tiny flakes of 24K gold in the oil! So, if you are sensitive to any of the natural oils listed or have a sensitivity to gold, I would suggest you avoid this massage oil and find some other brand.

The scent of this oil is Spicy Clove and Amber, and I really like it. Amber has always been one of my favourite scents-it’s the main note in my signature perfume oil that I always wear, and I even have tiny boxes of amber resin in my clothing drawers to softly scent my clothes! The amber in this oil isn’t as strong as I would like, and it’s a soft, almost powder-y note. The clove is the stronger of the two, and it’s sweet and warm, but not overpowering. This oil isn’t going to leave you smelling like a spice shop or baking cookies, instead it’s a soft and sweet scent that clings closely to your skin.

The gold flecks are something I’ve never seen before in a massage oil, and I’m honestly not sure what I think of it. While they don’t leave skin looking like you were attacked bya disco ball or a Twilight vampire, there is definitely a glow/shimmer left behind after a massage. My boyfriend wants nothing to do with this lotion, and has threatened to not use it on me unless I let him use gloves during the massage so he wouldn’t be ‘all sparkly’. (We both consider glitter to be a hard limit.) I haven’t noticed much transfer from skin to clothing or bedding, but I’m still not about to get dressed immediately after a massage with this or go roll around naked in bed.

While I like the consistency and the smell of Lelo’s Flickering Massage Oil, I’d be a bit hesitant to replace this bottle when I run out, due to cost. I’d be much happier if this came without the gold flakes/spanglies and had a lower price as a result. That being said, it’s a great item if you want a luxury massage oil, like the bottle, or just want to splurge!
