Lips like morphine now a reality thanks to new balm
Wednesday 27 April 2011
Want to be sure you leave your kissing partner tingling with excitement? Morphine Lips might be the answer: the new product - inspired by Kill Hannah's song "Lips Like Morphine" - numbs your lips for a kiss "they will never forget."
Vitamin E, beeswax, shea nut, coconut and grape seed oil, jojoba - there are no surprises in the list of lip balm ingredients until you get to the benzocaine, a local anesthetic agent normally used in everything from first aid sprays to condoms.
The four-percent dose of the ingredient is enough to numb your lips for five to seven minutes. "Use Morphine Lips before making your move and going in for the kiss," it says on the product's website. "After your lips touch, it will leave your victim's lips numb and their hearts racing."
Priced at $17.50, the balm is available in mint as well as mango and peach flavoring. A Naked version comes with a matte finish but without numbing.
Looking for other body parts to numb? The newly released Bare Ease panties ($25), developed by anesthesiologist Dr. Edna Ma, ensure painless bikini waxing.
