Review Roundup: The Clitorally Mind-blowing SONA Sonic Massager

When we launched SONA – the very first sonic clitoral massager – we knew we’d garner some attention, but we were overwhelmed by the response (including enthusiastic SONA support from such icons as Amber Rose)!

But, with any new product, particularly one featuring new sex toy technology like SONA Cruise, it’s bound to pique curiosity. Here’s we’ve gathered the most thorough product reviews of LELO SONA to help you decide if it’s right for you!

Lelo Sona Review

COSMOPOLITAN

This Sex Toy Gave Me a Totally New Kind of Orgasm

“Basically, you’re orgasming whether you’re ready or not, and once again, I sat there stunned that it only took about three minutes.”

“It was the fastest orgasm I’ve ever had, while feeling as gratifying and forceful as one that built up for a long time. “Woah, already???” my boyfriend blinked about a minute after I hit the button.”

“The fact that this worked so easily is a major game-changer.”

Toy Review: The LELO SONA

“…all I need to do is hover this toy over my clitoris and allow it to gently (though rapidly) tap against it to achieve climaxes that, so far, have always resulted in my entire body tensing with sheer delight. My vocal chords also wanting to show their approval, I always let out some form of involuntary noise upon the point of climax with the SONA. I just can’t help it. It’s that effective for me.”

“The SONA is such a size that it can comfortably be held in the hand and is easy to navigate during dual-toy use and, potentially, even couples’ use”

“But I absolutely adore the LELO SONA and find that it really does stimulate me in ways that vibrators just can’t (at least not while also operating at some of their lowest intensities, like the SONA does when I use it).”

KINKLY

The First Vibrator to Surprise Me in 15 Years

“I didn’t expect anything life-changing. I mean, I’ve been doing this for 15 years. I have my favorite vibrator. I have my routine.

Well, guess what? Screw the routine.”

“…I found a rhythm on the SONA Cruise that allowed me to tease myself toward orgasms that were more powerful and protracted than any I’d experienced in forever. My smoothie vibe hasn’t come out of the drawer since. (Sorry other vibrator!)”

Sex Toy Review: LELO SONA Cruise

“The Verdict: 5/5”

First up, I have to say that there’s a distinct advantage to coddling your clit with blasts of air rather than vibration: It never, ever does that thing where it retreats and is like “don’t touch me, that’s enough.” You are more likely to wear yourself out or be forced to, like, get up and go to work long before that happens. Trust me on this. Your friends may have to stage an intervention.”

“Now, for the most part, SONA is designed to be used by hovering it just over the skin without actually applying pressure. But for me, pressure felt amaaazing.”

Check out the rest of Anna Lynn’s thorough look at LELO SONA specs, and what SONA really feels like.

 

XTRA CURRICULAR

Review: Introducing the LELO SONA and SONA Cruise

The sonic waves are very interesting!! It feels as though air is being pushed out of the spout, but it’s actually the force of the vibrations from the hole! In use, it really has an impact, and actually it could work for me in minutes!”

“The toy is useful on other areas of the body too, and I’ve since found a decent balance of using the lower settings on the clitoris and higher on the nipples. It really reminds me of the Smart Wand in comparison with intensity. So if you find you need more in the way of  clitoral stimulation than any other toy you’ve tried, I’d definitely give this a go.”

The LELO SONA Is Sonic Sorcery for Clitoral Stimulation and I Am Here for It

The use of sonic waves and pulses makes for a more prolonged orgasm – I always think of an orgasm administered by a traditional vibrator as more of a bolt of lightning, while a longer, deeper build more like the slow roll of thunder.”

“And if we want to revisit that whole not-touching-your-body part, it’s not just cool – it’s also useful during sex or anytime you want multiple orgasms. When the clit doesn’t come in contact with the toy itself, it doesn’t oversensitize immediately following an orgasm. Neat, huh?”

VENUS O’HARA

LELO SONA Review

“As a frequent masturbator, I thought I had mastered the art of the silent orgasm, so as not to disturb my neighbours, of course. Despite this, SONA made me scream out loud in ecstasy.”

“Its shape means that in addition to the nozzle that comes into contact with the body, around the clitoral hood, some parts of the toy are in contact with the vulva, allowing you to appreciate some residual ripples of pleasure. I can even appreciate it against my pubic bone, which feels divine.”

  1. Sona massager felt even better than described in this review. It gives pleasure very fast and it left me surprised how good it was. I just wish the price was bit lower.

  2. WEll Took time to figure out what was wrong with my fun (Lelo Loki) so not to be so technical it was twisting to the side! And 15 minutes the great orgasm came even tasted it to not be urine , all cum it was great. Thank you Lelo, Mr. Lynn 🤤

  3. I found about sona from amber rose. I decided to buy it a cople of weeks
    ago. I was not disappointed, au contraire, I was amazed by the time
    it took for me to get to orgasm. It was so fast and I loved it

  4. Whoa!!!! I just bought my Lelo Sona Cruise. I only used it one time so far. . I am very new to this masturbation thing. I spent time and money trying to get the right vibrator just for me. I must admit at first I was a bit skeptical after reading all of the wonderful reviews for the Lelo Sona Cruise… Well!! This thing right here is a blessing!! I was not disappointed with false advertising. It delivered big!!I never had the “Big O” experience until I used the Lelo Sona Cruise. It very intense and fast! But pleasantly wonderful!! I think that I’m in love again.!! I love it some much that I decided to trash all of my previous vibratiors and buy all colors of the Lelo Sona Cruise. In that way, I will always have a back up. I can’t leave the home without it. Lastly, for those who never experienced the ” Big O” experience. I highly recommend the Lelo Sona with 10 stars. 😊

  5. Are you a female masochist fond of sex toys that:

    * operate like heavy machinery
    * emit distracting sounds
    * have a steep learning curve for successful use?

    If so, the SONA Cruise is perfectly suited for you. It will punish your delicate lady part, while emitting sounds one wouldn’t expect to hear in the bedroom. Two of those sounds were surely inspired by 1980s arcade games. The third resembles a flat tire on a vehicle moving slowly down a street (fwap, fwap, fwap). To replicate this sound, simply turn on the device, then reposition it on the body. Romantic.

    Potential customers may wish to know, there is a pressure feedback mechanism that activates the tiny plunger-like membrane inside the hole. The greater the pressure (how hard once presses the device against the body), the more forcefully the plunger will oscillate.

    The jarring surprise is, the pressure sensor operates on a hair trigger. (This is not an adjustable setting.) Merely shifting the toy will fire off the supercharged plunger, resulting in unexpected clitoral punches. Want to know what your clitoris is in for, try inserting the tip of a pinky finger into that hole.

    (Side note: Lelo, you could improve this feature by allowing for a greater tolerance for user repositioning while simultaneously incorporating more gradual levels of oscillating action.)

    Wish I had heeded all of the negative reviews on Amazon. Why didn’t I? Two reasons: 1. I have a different Lelo product (SIRI) that is great and 2. I saw all of the positive reviews on lelo.com. (By the way, they only post positive reviews.) I thought, the negative reviews on Amazon were unique situations. Turns out, the Amazon reviews actually offer a more balanced reflection of the SONA Cruise experience.

    While I didn’t experience tearing or bleeding, I did encounter a pinching feeling accompanied by the thought that things might go bad at any moment (e.g. tissue damage).

    And yes, Jennifer from Lelo, I have earnestly tried all of your suggestions:

    – This item doesn’t need to come in contact with the body. Try hovering it instead!
    – Make sure you start the intensity at the lowest setting by pressing the – button
    -Try using the item in different positions! We have heard great feedback from people who use the device while kneeling or with their legs closed

    and none have changed my experience or opinion of the SONA Cruise.

    The purpose of this post is to serve as a warning to others. Save your money and avoid a device that randomly punches the clitoris. The SONA Cruise is a punishing device, not a pleasure toy.
