Favourite brand alert! It feels like so much time has passed since I last reviewed a Shunga product, but today I’m putting that right. Today I’m gonna tell you all about a product that adds a little bit of magic to the Fella’s already incredible massages. Shunga Kissable Massage Cream in Pear & Exotic Green Tea is the most deliciously scented thing ever. Every time I smell it (which is daily cos I keep popping the cap to take a deep hit) I think of pear drops and I start to salivate. I want to squirt it in my mouth and eat it like it’s canned whipped cream.
And that is why I’ve been on both ends of this massage cream. Yep, I’m so into it I switched things up and gave the Fella a massage. Yes, it did have a happy ending, and yes I did use this cream as lube. Don’t judge me, I’m an adult, I’m allowed. And before you ask, no, it wasn’t even remotely fantastic so let my mistake be your future caution.
So, what you get is a hefty 200ml (7 fl. oz) tube of heavenly scented cream. The design on that tube is Shunga’s usual, gorgeous Japanese erotic art in soothing shades of green. It looks so fancy I’ve taken to leaving it on the shelf in my bathroom with my other Shunga massage products, just so I can look at it.
The ingredients list is quite extensive, so I’ve taken a picture of it rather than bulking the review out with a recipe. There’s plenty of beneficial ingredients in there, like avocado and safflower oils, and there’s vitamin E too. But there’s also glycerine and propylene glycol in it too, so be aware of that if you think the cream might end up in or around your genitals.
Shunga Kissable Massage Cream is white and pretty thick at first, but once it melts in the hand it thins out nicely. That means it spreads well, and a little goes a long way, so a tube will last quite a few sessions. I would definitely recommend rubbing it between your hands to warm it up like I did before I went at the Fella like an amateur masseuse. He didn’t extend me the same courtesy and it’s fucking freezing straight from the tube. I squealed like a piggy when he splodged it on my back.
I’m impressed with how easily my hands glide over his skin with this cream. There’s no drag and very little stickiness to it. And did I tell you it smells divine? I’m so pleased it’s kissable, cos I couldn’t keep my mouth off the Fella once I’d covered him in it. It tastes as good as it smells, though there is an artificial sweetness that tastes weird after a while.
And like I said above, using it as a lube – however sparingly – is a terrible idea. It acts in a similar way to a purpose made penis masturbation cream but is super sickly if you consume too much. That isn’t a flaw with the product, though, it’s a flaw in my good sense. It’s not an oral sex lube so I shouldn’t have tried using it as one.
When the Fella uses this cream on me I pretty much lie there and die of happiness. The smell wraps my mind up in dirty candy shop fantasies, and I’m very accommodating once the massage is over. I don’t even need to take a shower afterward to wash away and residue cos it’s just not at all sticky. It leaves my skin feeling soft and strangely cold, so snuggling up in bed is all the more delightful.
The only thing better than using it on one another? Using it with one another. Squishing a bit in our palms before plain old vanilla sex gives things a different twist. Spreading it on our bodies lets us slip and slide without the mess and clean-up that comes of using oils.
We both love this stuff, and if you’re into massages with creams and oils, you might well love it too. If you’d like to try some with your partner (or even if you just wanna make yourself smell divine and your skin silky soft) you can pick some up here, or on Amazon if you’re in the UK.
