2017 has been a banner year for the clitoris! In fact, it’s been an incredible year for sex toy technology and design in general. With that being said, LELO, of course, is leading the pack by combining the need for better sex with advancing technology. The brand new LELO Sona Cruise is being touted as something completely different for women. And with a marketing campaign called Cliterally Mindblowing, the expectations are very high!

Here’s Our Product Review of the LELO Sona Cruise

Super Sonic

When initially testing the Sona I was stunned at how my body reacted. My first interaction resulted in a sneaky orgasm. You know, the type of orgasm that just catches you by surprise. Thinking it was an anomaly, I had to try it over and over again—just to make sure. Then it hit me! My naughty bits have never experienced sonic waves. The LELO Sona Cruise is cliterally unlike other vibes. It’s a sonic wave massager that feels gentle, yet powerful. The fact that it did not suck or pull my clit like the Womanizer was a bonus. Although it’s hard describing my experience with words, the stimulation felt like a warm, deep wavy sensation. The sonic waves penetrated deep into the core of my body, vibrating my entire clitoris—inside and out.

Clitorally Speaking

If you’re like me and are experiencing peri-menopausal symptoms, it can sometimes be a challenge becoming aroused. The LELO Sona Cruise is a lot like having your own personal deep tissue massage therapist but for your clit. What I truly love about this product is it has great potential for getting a woman revved up for sex during foreplay. When the mood in my brain does not match what’s going on with my body, I will use the LELO Sona Cruise just before sex. I found it to be a perfect tool for jump-starting the arousal process. Plus, it feels way better than oral sex.

Easy Come, Easy Go

There are tons of benefits that come with using the LELO Sona Cruise. I won’t go over all of them. But here are a few highlights. First, it will make you come real quick, which is especially good if you’re in the mood for a morning pick-me-up or a quicky during lunch. The fact that it is waterproof lets you take it in the shower or bath too after a long day of work. Another benefit is the performance. There are two models of the LELO Sona — regular and the one with the option-rally fun pack, the Cruise. The LELO Sona Cruise has a control feature which automatically reserves 20% of the power during regular use. What that means is that there is no reduction in power when pressed against the body. You don’t have to worry about a thing—just lie back and let the Sona do all the work.



Handling the LELO Sona Cruise

There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding touch-less clitoral stimulators. Most of us have heard of the Womanizer or the Satisfyer. And to be honest, they aren’t bad products. However, the LELO Sona Cruise is in a completely different category in terms of design features and technology. The LELO Sona Cruise has a more balanced refinement both in style and function. I really love how it has some heft to it, but not in a weird, unmanagable kind of way. The Sona screams luxury too—which is expected of LELO. It’s wrapped in premium body-safe silicone and feels like silky, smooth velvet. Although the button panel is simple, I do recommend getting acquainted with the user manual, especially if you have the Cruise version.

Easy Does It

I suggest experimenting with the LELO Sona Cruise on the lowest setting first. The reason is that this product offers sonic technology and provides unique sensations that can feel unfamiliar. When I first used the Sona Cruise, I was stunned at how fast it can overstimulate the clit. And for women who have ever overstimulated themselves, that’s not a happy/good feeling. I recommend finding that special sweet spot and slowly increasing the LELO Sona Cruiseintensity or varying the pattern. I’ve rarely used the LELO Sona Cruise on its highest setting—at least directly on my clitoris. However, I was curious about whether it would work on my other erogenous zone and found the Sona to be quite effective in stimulating my nipples and perineum. The LELO Sona Cruise stays stationary too. Unlike a regular vibrator, where you have to move it around, the Sona does not need much in terms of manipulation. Find your spot, keep it there and feel the pleasure unfold.

Give it a Go!

For me, the presentation of a sex toy is just as important as the device itself. When a company makes the effort in developing gorgeous packaging it shows that they care about the product and you. In this case, LELO did not skimp on their packaging. Every LELO Sona Cruise comes in a giftable box. The contents are easily laid out and include a USB recharging cable, instructive user manual and a silk travel pouch.
