Sonic waves are used as opposed to vibrations. These waves penetrate the more sensitive and deeper layers of tissue that other vibes don’t reach and create an excellent quality of orgasms when you apply pressure. However, the pleasure you will experience probably comes from the sonic waves and not from the physical vibrator itself. Therefore it’s not necessary to make actual contact with your skin or body. However, as you approach climax, you may feel the need to apply pressure, and this is perfectly okay. In order to connect the vibrator to your skin, a water-based lubricant is recommended.

The toy itself is made from a medical grade silicone, which is 100% body safe. And although it looks more like a large lemon as opposed to an actual dildo, the sensations definitely make up for what it lacks in looks. So ultimately, it does need to be big to make a big impression.

It also comes with eight different vibration patterns and its fully waterproof. So feel free to change the pattern settings until you find one that you really enjoy. Also, feel free to use it in various aquatic environments without any worry of it being damaged. The fact that it’s fully waterproof also makes it convenient and easy to clean. When it comes to battery life, you should know that it is rechargeable, so there’s no need for carrying around batteries. After two hours of charge, it gives you approximately one hour pleasure.

The Basics

The Lelo Sona is made from seamless silicone, which is not just body safe but is pleasant to the touch. Contains a shiny metallic plastic and has the Lelo logo inscribed on it. Some people say it makes the material look tacky and the silicone is a much nicer look as opposed to the plastic.

At the bottom of the Lelo, you’ll find the charging port, which is an open circle; however, the product is 100% waterproof. When it’s time to charge the device, all you do is hook it up to the USB charger that’s provided with the device and charge it for a full two hours. The buttons flash with a bright white light when the battery is low, so you know when to charge it.

The vibe contains three buttons on the silicone side, and each time you click on the buttons, the light will flash. In order to turn it on, you need to hold down on the plus button for a few seconds.

When you switch it on, it will be on the lowest intensity. As you continue to click the plus button, the intensity will increase. There are nine levels and clicking the minus button, and plus button respectively will increase or decrease the intensities.

If you want to switch it off, all you need to do is hold down on the minus button for a couple of seconds. The central button is what’s used to change the settings. There are proximately eight different functions which are a mixture of oscillations and pulses.

Although you may have heard that the Lelo Sona is quiet or discrete, the truth is it is anything but that. The Lelo Sona is ridiculously noisy. So if you have thin walls, it is advisable only to use it when you are alone. At best, the sound can be muffled if you use it under a few layers of blankets. However, aside from that, this sounds more like a tiny drill than a discreet vibe.

Another thing which is different from other vibrators is that it makes use of sonic waves.  There is a mechanical feature inside the cup of the vibe that moves up and down pretty quickly. This is what pushes air out, causing a stimulating sensation. So far, there are a lot of vibes that cause a sucking sensation, but this feels more like a tapping sensation.

The sensations are very intense and bring you to orgasm very quickly. So if you are new to using clitoral stimulators or if you have particularly sensitive genitals, it is advisable to use it on the lowest intensity.

There are some users that would prefer warm-up modes since even the lowest level is still rather intense. So if you enjoy a gradual t build up to orgasm, you should be aware that the Lelo Sona is one of the most intense vibes out there. However, if you’re looking for a quickie, this is the best kind of toy.

Lelo Sona Vs. Sona Cruise

The Sona and Sona Cruise look almost identical in appearance. However, does this mean that they work the same way? Well, the Sona Cruise has a distinct feature that the Sona does not contain. This feature is called the cruise control function. What it ultimately does is reserve 20% of the power while the vibrator is being used normally, and when you apply pressure onto your body, the motor begins to drop power and the cruise function kicks in. This function is fully automatic, and you don’t need to click on a button or select anything in order to activate it. All that is needed is light pressure and the function as automatic.

So aside from the cruise control function, the Lelo Sona works exactly the same way as the Sona Cruise.

Lelo Sona vs. Womanizer

The Womanizer was released at least three years ago. Although lots of people are not fond of the name, they were still quite intrigued by it. Sooner rather than later, the positive reviews started rolling in. The womanizer PW 500 is a black and grey vibe which looks cool. He Swarovski button detail is for those with an acquired taste, and it looks more like a belly button piercing.

However, this clit five needs a lot of lube to be comfortable and fun. It also has an ABS plastic covering which can get quite slippery at times. Lots of users compared it to holding on to a bar of soap. However, when you can get a good grip on it, it feels rather good. However, you could buy a Sona and another clit vibrator for the same price that the Womanizer retails for.

The Lelo Sona, on the other hand, is one of the latest developments from the Swedish sex toy powerhouse Lelo. Although it’s been a while since it released a new vibe, they have come back with a bang. The Sona as it turns out, is quite the clit stimulator. It works like a vacuum and uses an oscillating pad that creates pulses and waves instead of vibrations.

So, in essence, it does not need direct contact to provide stimulation. Moreover, it doesn’t just stimulate the outer part of the clit, but it penetrates the tissues to stimulate the entire clit not just on the outside and but the inside as well. According to many users, the sensation is quite intense. It’s made from a single piece of body safe silicone, and it’s 100% waterproof.

So when it comes to comparing the Sona to the Womanizer, the Womanizer contains eight speeds with good levels of intensity much the same as the Sona. It has a better battery life than the Sona, includes two silicone heads and is waterproof just like the Sona.

There are also multiple styles to choose from. However, the Sona has a silicone body, which feels high in quality, and the price is excellent as well. In fact, for the same price as the Womanizer, you could probably buy a Lelo Sona and a Satisfyer as well.

How to Use Lelo Sona?

The plus and minus buttons are used in order to increase or decrease the strength of vibration.

In order to switch the toy off, all you do is hold down on the minus button for a couple of seconds.

It is important that you charge the device for a full two hours before you use it for the first time. Although you do not need to make direct contact with your skin while using the Lelo Sona, it is advisable to seal the gap between the device and your skin with a little bit of water-based lubricant. This will make the entire experience a little more comfortable for you.
