Review | Nomi Tang: Almost As Good As Chocolate

When a sex toy makes the claim that it’s better than chocolate, I’m interested. That’s why I was excited when the people at Nomi Tang contacted me about reviewing their new clitoral vibrator, the Nomi Tang Better Than Chocolate 2.

Nomi Tang Better Than Chocolate 2 is a luxury clitoral vibrator that’s made of sleek, body-safe silicone and is formed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. It’s fully rechargeable by USB and can be submerged under water up to one metre. The Better Than Chocolate 2 is no slump: Cosmopolitan UK recently named it as ” the sexiest vibrator” for its sleek looks and innovative pleasure technology. It’s also the 2014 recipient of one of the world’s most coveted design awards, the red dot design award for product design. It goes without saying that I was super curious about this toy.

What separates the Better Than Chocolate 2 from most other luxury clitoral vibrators is that it features an innovative Touch Sensor. Instead of pressing a button to increase the intensity of the vibrations, you simply run your finger along the touch sensor pad. And yes, I have a handy gif ready to demonstrate!

There’s a lot of things I really like about the The Better Than Chocolate 2:

It’s sexy and feels very luxurious: Just by looking at this toy it’s easy to see why it has won awards. It’s small, extremely compact and ultra sleek. It has a velvety texture that feels great. It also comes packaged in a lovely satin lined gift box that makes you feel like you’re opening a very sexy gift.

It offers strong, pin-pointed vibrations – As I’ve mentioned before, I love clitoral vibrators that are very precise (blame the fact that I am a Virgo!) like the We-Vibe Touch and Tango. The Better Than Chocolate 2 is great in this respect because it has a pin-pointed tip that excels in delivering precise stimulation to your clit. Also, the vibrations are nice and strong, which is a must for me!

It’s discreet – As a friend of mine commented, it looks like a futuristic computer mouse. So much so, that it actually fooled Joe the Intern.

However, what I thought I would like best about the Better Than Chocolate 2 – the touch sensor control pad – was actually what I liked least. Although the toy fit perfectly in my hand, I found it super awkward trying to move my finger up and down the pad. To access the most intense vibrations (what I usually enjoy) you have to hold your finger at the furthest point of the pad, which I couldn’t quite reach when using this toy. I’m not sure whether this is a design flaw, or just a case of me having really short fingers. Either way, it definitely took away from the experience.

Aside from my frustrations with the control pad, I still think the Better Than Chocolate 2 is a really nice toy. At the end of the day, for me it just comes down to personal preference. It’s like how I felt about the Lelo Siri – it’s a good toy, I just prefer my favourite clitoral vibrators like the We-Vibe TouchThe We-Vibe TangoThe Jimmyjane Form 2 or the Crave Duet more. It’s like chocolate: some people love milk chocolate (me), others dark chocolate. It doesn’t mean that one is better than the other, just different.

So, for me this toy isn’t “Better Than Chocolate” but rather “Almost as good as.” It’s like the dark chocolate, to my rich milk chocolate.

And now I’m hungry.

Thanks to Nomi Tang for facilitating this review. I received this toy free of charge in exchange for my honest review of the product. All opinions are my own because that’s how I roll.
