Performance
I was delighted when I got my bottle of Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil. Even if “Orgy of Grape” isn’t exactly ca classy name for a flavor (seriously, a rape pun?) the product itself did look very classy.

The tin is a tall, cylindrical black can with elegant Shunga on the front. The art is the same as the one on the bottle itself, which is why I did not take a picture of it. Still, it is a very nice aluminum can that looks classy enough that I couldn’t help admiring it. The bottle is classy, too, due to the fact it’s nicely made out of thick glass with a very traditional plastic stopper in the top.

Uncorking the bottle made a satisfying pop sound, leaving me ready to move in for a sniff. A sweet, fruity smell met my nose. It was grape but… not. It reminded me of the inexpensive grape lollipops that find their way into trick or treat bags every year. The flavor wasn’t much better, sadly. It tasted like sweetened grape cough syrup.

After licking the unpleasant taste away, I noticed something weird. My skin was tingly and a little warm. Curiously, I blew on my hand an a delightfully subtle yet erotic warming sensation swept over my skin. Starting to get a little excited, I applied more lube and blew on the wet spots.

The warming was a lot stronger while the lube was still on the skin. It began with a gentle “sunlight” warmth that rose in intensity to rival sitting next to a blazing fire on a cold winter’s night. It was warm, toasty, and a little uncomfortable. Most impressively, I found it actually warmed the skin where the lube was!

Licking the Shunga Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil away and blowing again left the same delightful warm tingle as before. If anything, the extra exposure seemed to make it a little stronger, much to my delight. This warming tingle effect lasted until it was washed off the skin. It never faded away.

Pros: warms very well, tingles nicely, lasts very well, very classy bottle.

Cons: Fake tasting, can get too hot for comfort unless licked away first.

The Verdict: Worth it

Despite the fake grape taste, Shunga’s Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil has an incredible warming sensation. I have never seen another lube work so well! The packaging is also gorgeous and I felt very sexy using this flavored lube. As long as you don’t mind the grape flavor or pick a different flavor, you’re in for a treat!

    I don’t know, honestly. I have not tried them yet. I intend to get more once I run out of grape, though! I hope the others taste better than this. Anyone have flavor requests for me to try?
