I decided to test out a type of product I had never tried before recently for PinkCherry.com Sex Toys. The product was the Shunga Oriental Body Slide Massage Kit in the Strawberries and Champagne scent. It’s a way to give you and your partner a slippery and wet ride that involves massages and possibly sexy fun. The kit includes 2 bottles labeled #1 and #2, instructions, and a large foil looking waterproof sheet that has a gold and silver side. To use the product, you combine the whole bottle of the #1 solution and the whole bottle of the #2 solution in a huge bowl and then add — of lukewarm water to the mix. When you are done you will have just made 1 gallon of massage gel to use on you and your partner. Now in the instructions, it instructs you to pick a large area in your house and either lay down a thick blanket or a mattress like platform, roll up four towels and lay them on each side of your platform and then cover it with the large waterproof sheet. Ta da! You now have your platform set up for a full body massage – heck you guys can even try out some massage gel wrestling if it suits your fancy!
The instructions are actually pretty easy to follow, they are straight forward and contain both text and images. It goes over the steps of
making the massage gel, setting up your area to play, and then some. There is a lot to them, but they are still very easy to follow. My partner and I set up in our bath area because we had enough room in there. I chose that partially because I figured when we were done, we could just jump straight into the bath tub to clean off. I laid down our Liberator Throe first because of the waterproof aspect and then laid down the rolled up towels around the edges. I rolled up a blanket because it was more plush to put in place of where our heads would be. We then laid down the foil sheet with the silver side up because we both felt that the gold side was a little too intense and in your face. Though I noticed later during clean up that the gold side was a bit like a mirror so if you would like that during your play time, I suggest using the gold side!
I then set out to making the massage gel, I used my huge baking bowl that had the pour spout on on one side because I figured we could just pour it over each others bodies. I was only planning on making only half the bottles because to me a whole gallon of gel sounded like a lot but to be honest when you really get going, it’s not a lot at all. So I made the whole gallon of massage gel for us to play with. I just used my hands to mix the products. I was surprised when the gel was done, it was think and it would wiggle when you moved it kind of like jello. So when I began to use it on my partner, I felt almost as if I was pouring thin Jell-O on him. The gel came out a pretty pink color and smelled absolutely wonderful, it wasn’t a strong smell. I was a little worried that because the scent was called “Strawberries & Champagne” that it would be a little overpowering. It wasn’t at all, it smelled wonderful and relaxing.
So when we used it, we took turns – I gave him a nice full body massage by rubbing my body all over his. He seemed to absolutely love it. After I was done with him he gave me a massage using his hands and body. I loved it except that by then the gel and bathroom had gotten pretty cold so I don’t think I enjoyed it as much as I could have. I think next time, the summer might be a better time to use this product – not close to the winter time. Due to the cold, we didn’t get any further than massages and jumped into a warm bath right after.
I tried looking, but I could not find the ingredients of the product. It does say in the instructions that it is not to be used on sensitive skin and if it causes irritation to wash under water. Another warning is that it is extremely slippery so you do want to avoid standing up on the surface that you have created. As far as clean up goes, it was pretty easy to clean all of the gel off in the tub and it didn’t seem to leave any residue. I just balled up the waterproof sheet and dumped the little bit of gel that was left over. It was easy to clean out of the mixing bowl as well.
All in all, I loved this product it was very fun and unique. To me the pro is that you and your partner will be able to experience a great unique intimate experience with each other. The con is that it takes time to set up and clean up, so you’ll want to set aside the time for it.

I was recently given the chance from Babeland to try out the Jimmyjane Contour Q massage stones. The Contour Q massage stones are made for targeted massage and they fit directly into the palm of your hand. They are also made to fit perfectly into the Contour M massage stone as well. The Contour Q massage stones are made completely of porcelain and can be heated or cooled by placing them in warm or cool water. The Contour Q stones come in a set of two, one has a slightly ridged surface and the other has a surface covered in bumps. Each stone has short knobs on each end that are referred to as the “pressure nodes”. Each stone is ergonomically made to fit in the palm of your hand. They are about 1.5″ wide and 2.7″ high. The stones are glazed with a smooth white glaze and are body safe and easy to clean.
The reason I wanted to try out these stones is because my partner and I often give each other massages. We have both used a massage tools on each other before. One of the reasons that I chose to try these stones is because of the ability to warm and cool them for use. If I want to warm them up, I just drop them into a cup of warm water and if I want to cool them down I do the same with a cup of cold water. Though I haven’t found a need to cool them yet because they are normally cool due to room temperature. When warming, I let them sit for about 6 – 10 minutes in a cup of warm water. They do pick up the temperature of the water really well. Though I noticed that they will cool off quickly depending on the heat you warm them to. So if you are planning on giving a long massage – you may want to keep the warm water next to you so you can rewarm the stones.
The stones do fit perfectly in the palm of both my and my partner’s hands – despite me having much smaller hands. It did take a few uses for me to get the hang of rolling it along my partner’s back though. My partner said that he didn’t feel much of a difference between the two textures when I used them on him. I didn’t either, but I did notice that the bumpy stone did do better for a surface massage and the stone with the ridges on it seemed to do a deeper massage. The stones are supposed to help get circulation going in the area that they are used and somehow I could really tell. It felt great!
There are a few uses for the Contour Q stones at the bottom of the image. My partner and I did use them for an all over back massage – which worked great both cooled and warmed. I did use the pressure nodes (ends of stones) on my hands and temples – those worked very well. I could definitely feel a difference in the areas that I used them on. I did use them to massage my own feet, I just put down a towel and set the stone on top of it, then I positioned my foot on top of it and rolled it back and forth with my foot. If you have a job that involves you being on your feet most of the day – you will love the stones for a foot massage. They worked great, especially when I used them on my feet at a warmed temperature. The image does show tips for sexual use – but my partner and I didn’t really try them out for any of those uses. The clean up of the stones is easy, I just wash them with mild soap and warm water. Also, if you receive your stones and one of them is chipped – please don’t use it!! Contact customer support and see if you can have them exchanged.
All in all, I really enjoy these for massage and they work great with the
Babeland Massage Candle as well! I recommend them so go purchase your own and check out all of the other great toys and vibrators on the woman friendly website Babeland!
Best Smelling Massage Candle ever! I had been wanting to try out a massage candle for the longest time, so I was thrilled when the woman-friendly website: Babeland offered it to me for review. I am glad that one of these eco-friendly and current “Moregasm” Toy of the Month Babeland candles were my first massage candles. The reason I say eco-friendly is because they are packaged in a cardboard container which can be recycled and once you use up your candle, you can either recycle the glass container at a recycling center or reuse it for something else. I’ll probably reuse mine for something else, like maybe some of my battery operated votive candles in the future.
The candles are made of soy wax and shea butter and then have the fragrance added. The candle is about 3 ounces big and the fragrance that I got to try out is “Mango Vanilla”. I’m actually not a huge vanilla scent person but I love fruity smells and so does my partner. When I got the candle, I loved that it came in a container – and even included a box of match sticks.
The scent of the candle is wonderful! It’s light and not too strong, I have it sitting next to me while I write this and I can smell it but not to the point that is overwhelming. The scent is a light vanilla with a slight fruity smell added in. It smells so great and definitely relaxing. The candle melts quickly, so you are not having to wait a long time just to be able to use it. As long as you don’t let it sit too long – it doesn’t get too hot, so you won’t have to worry about burning yourself or your partner. My partner is more sensitive to temperature than I am, so I make sure to ask first and I suggest that you do the same with your partner. I test the wax with my finger first, I just tap it to get an idea of the heat before I drip or pour any of it on my partner.
The wax melts to a clear yellow color, there is a chance that it could stain, but I have not had any experience with it. So if you get it on your clothes, I would be sure to wash them asap because it has wax in it and it literally melts to a nice massage oil. That might be a little hard to get out or leave a permanent mark on your clothes. The shape of the glass votive holder that the candle is in, makes it easy to dip into, drip, or pour the wax.
So far, I have used the candle a few times by now – and I have loved it every time. The fragrance is great and I love that the wax melts into a massage oil and it doesn’t seem waxy at all once it is melted. I love that about it, some candles I have heard that they still have a waxy feel. This one doesn’t at all, and the fragrance lasts a long time. Twice, I have used it to massage my partner before bed and when I wake up next to him in the morning I can still smell it on him. I love that!
It’s a great product that I am very happy with, I hope to eventually try out a candle in each one of the scents. There are four of them: Mango Vanilla, Pashmina, Rice Flower, and Citron Fig. The price is great too – they aren’t as costly as some of the massage candles that I have seen.
