How Do SONA 2 & Cruise Control Actually Work?

Our newest pleasure products, SONA 2, is certainly causing waves – and it’s easy to see why! SONA 2 doesn’t look much like your standard clitoral vibe, and it doesn’t act like it either! Rather, it stimulates 75% more of the clitoris (including the part of its structure you can’t see) – but how does it actually do that?

Firstly, let’s get into the differences between a traditional clitoral vibrator and SONA 2 – this video does a pretty great job!`

So How Does SONA 2 Actually FEEL?

Rather than a buzzing or rumbling vibration on your clitoris, it almost feels like there’s a ‘tapping’ sensation being exerted. This comes from the inner smaller flat plate with the ‘mouth’ of SONA 2 that moves back and forth without actually touching you. This sensation is able to bring you to intense, sudden climax – but also manages to resonate deep within the clitoral structure that you can’t see! Remember to start gentle and listen to what your body wants, as you will have ease your way into this new and exciting stimulation.

What’s Cruise Control?

If you find yourself pressing your favorite external vibe against your body with a lot of pressure as you approach climax, you’re not alone. And yet, this pressure can often cause interference with the moving parts of many sex toys, causing it to slow down. With the unique Cruise Control technology, we were able to tackle this problem in the upgraded SONA 2 Cruise.

Essentially, Cruise Control is a feature that holds back 20% of SONA 2’s full power during normal use, so that when SONA 2 is pressed hard against the body and the motor begins to drop power, that extra 20% is unleashed so that there’s no reduction of intensity – kind of like ‘overdrive’ in older cars, or an afterburner on a jet.

  1. I ordered a Sona last week I have not yet received it and it appears it’s already obsolete as there is a new and improved Sona Cruise now available

    • Hi there! SONA and SONA Cruise were actually launched at the same time – they’re slightly different and priced differently as well! If your order has not yet shipped, you may be able to alter your order if you get in touch with our Customer Care team!

  2. I just received my Sona Cruise, but the user guide is useless. It doesn’t say how to use the buttons or where to put it or anything. How can I get this information? Thank you. Oh, and they didn’t include a charger.

  3. I have been using SONA cruise for a month.
    This is the first sex toy I have ever used and the first time I have masturbated successfully.
    The first few times I used SONA I had an orgasm after 1-2 minutes, however now it takes me around 10 minutes, if any!
    What the heck I am doing wrong?

    • Awesome to hear that the SONA Cruise is a success for you! You are doing absolutely nothing wrong, maybe the initial shock of the new sensation was what made you orgasm so fast in the beginning. I would consider 10 minutes pretty awesome too!

  4. I cannot locate the manual/instructions?

    • Hi Jojo! To turn on the SONA, simply hold down on the (+) button. From there, you can increase (+) or decrease (-) the intensities, or change the patterns (↑/↓). When you’re satisfied, press the (-) button until the device turns off. Hope this helps!

  5. I’d like to know, which clit stimulator is the most powerful? Which song do I purchase if I want it to feel the full force.

    • Hey there! The SONA 2 Cruise would be your best option because it contains a wider range of vibration settings compared to the first generation SONA and it also contains the Cruise Control technology which keeps consistent power as it is pushed against the body.

  6. My glans clitoris is quite retracted. Which means I am exactly one of those people just trying to vibrate the whole clitoris. But what I don’t understand is where and how firmly you place the opening of the SONA? I guess I always envisioned people with vulvas inserting their glans clitoris into clit vibrators with the opening holes so I have always avoided that style of vibrator. But your description of this vibrator as reaching the entire clitoris sounds perfect to me–I would love to see a better description of how to use it if your external glans clitoris is extremely difficult to find (let’s say impossible).

    • Hi there! Since anatomy varies so much, we always recommend first using the toy on the lowest setting around the inner and outter lips. For some, even this amount of stimulation is enough to climax. Those who need more power to reach climax typically place the mouth of the device directly on the glans clitoris. The glans clitoris is often less retracted in a non-aroused state. Since the sonic waves penetrade so deeply, most people report that “you’ll just know when you hit the spot.” Of course, always start slow and listen to your body. Happy exploring!
