Product Review: Shunga Organica Erotic Massage Oil

Massage oils have always been something of a rare treat for me. They’re not something I use all the time and I typically don’t buy many (lube always comes before massage oil). As such each massage session is a special occasion and the oil used matters.

Massages themselves are also an experience to be savoured. Focusing on intimacy, relaxation, and a gradual build-up in sexual tension, massages can be a great foreplay tool if used appropriately.

Shunga totally get this, which is why their company focuses on the art of eroticism. Shunga aims to enhance the intimacy and sensations of sex by providing products that focus on heightening sensuality. Massage oils certainly fit that category, and so Shunga have quite a few massage products.

A while back I was fortunate enough to be able to try Shunga’s Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil in Organica Green Tea flavour. That product was made to be an intimate oil, a heating oil, and a flavoured oil all in one and I loved it. As such I was incredibly excited when Shunga provided me with two of the Organica Erotic Massage Oils from their new line.

With a different focus from the Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil, Shunga’s Organica Erotic Massage Oils provided and entirely different experience.

Shunga Organica Erotic Massage Oils

Shunga’s Organica Erotic Massage Oil is what I would consider as a much more conventional massage oil as opposed to the Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil. The oils themselves places a lot of emphasis on touch and taste. The label for this product states that “The sensual pleasure of touching and being touched quickly heats up with this luscious oil” meanwhile it also boasts that the oil is “so heavenly and natural you’ll want to eat it!”

When Shunga speaks of how natural this oil is it certainly isn’t an understatement. The Shunga Organica Erotic Massage Oils are made from 100% natural cold-pressed oils. There are no animal or mineral oils involved and the ingredients are all 100% certified organic. In addition to this the oils are paraben-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, fragrance-free, latex friendly and vegan. This huge list of benefits makes this oil a great choice for most people, especially if vegan and organic products are a big must for you.

The Shunga Organica Erotic Massage Oils come in three different flavours—Exotic green tea, Intoxicating chocolate, and Almond sweetness. I personally got given the Intoxicating chocolate and Almond sweetness oils and both smell divine.

What Shunga said is true; I really do want to lap these oils up whenever they’re applied. The almond oil, especially, smells amazing; similar to marzipan or Amaretto and entirely irresistible. The chocolate oil smells nice too—similar to chocolate fudge brownie mix, perhaps for dark chocolate. It’s not as appealing to my nose as the almond oil but it still smells good enough to taste. However we’ll get to the flavour later.

The oils themselves are silky smooth to the touch and very responsive to warmth. In comparison to the Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil, the Organica Erotic Massage Oils are simply smoother and much more receptive to gliding over the skin. This makes massaging your partner a breeze as each hand movement is smoothly facilitated by the oil.

While this oil is rather thin I also found that it never just spilled out of its bottle, which is a testament to both the oil and the design of the bottle cap. This also means that you don’t have to worry about any accidental squirts of oil coming out of the bottle, which is always a bonus.

Shunga claims that this oil is non-greasy and won’t clog pores and I do agree with them. Mr. Peaches generally struggles with spots on his back however since using this oil he hasn’t had any additional spot outbreaks and his skin has actually even cleaned up a bit! This oil does contain Vitamin E so this might be why it’s so good at nourishing the user’s skin.

I definitely enjoyed using this oil on Mr. Peaches and I think it’ll probably be our go-to oil strictly for massages. However I do feel like this oil offers a little less than the Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil. While the Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil was thicker (which meant it didn’t provide as smooth a massage) it also had more potential for close moments. The use of one’s breath, in particular, added heat to the experience in more ways than one. With Shunga’s Organica Erotic Massage Oils I can’t deny that you are given a fantastic massage oil but it seems to lack the same level of intimacy.

This is just a personal preference though, as many people may find touching their partner to be more exciting than blowing and breathing on them instead (which does start sounding a bit weird when I phrase it like that).

Another thing I found less effective with this oil was its oral potential. The flavours from this oil are quite tasty but they’re also very subtle in comparison to the positively juicy Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil. Because this oil is also much more conventional in its consistency it also feels quite oily when in the mouth (which is to be expected but isn’t any less undesirable because of that).

Because of this I probably wouldn’t recommend these oils for oral sex however they are good for the occasional playful lick.

Final Thoughts

Overall I really enjoyed using the Shunga Organica Erotic Massage Oils and would recommend them to anyone who wants a good massage oil and values quality organic products.

From the moment I poured these oils onto Mr. Peaches’ back I could tell how luxurious they were and this was reaffirmed again and again during use. Because of how well-made these oils are I do believe they would be great for an intimate massage, however if you want to get closer to your partner then I’d probably still recommend the Intimate Kisses Aphrodisiac Oil.

But as a massage oil alone I really can’t recommend the Shunga Organica Erotic Massage Oils enough. They’re smooth, lustrous, receptive to heat and they smell delicious. Why not buy yourself a bottle and start perfecting your erotic art.
