‘So is it any good?’
That’s the usual question that pops up the most often concerning women’s sex toys – and the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise clitoral stimulator is a prime example of a toy that makes you wonder. Distinguishing between gimmicky and innovative isn’t easy, but searching for the right sex toy takes some trial and error. However, it’s worth it if you get to that sweet spot that delivers the big O’s.
Lelo designed their unique clitoral stimulator to specifically target the whole clitoris – not just the external parts, bringing you closer to climax using indirect clitoral stimulation and sonic-waves!
The Lelo Sona 2 Cruise is the second edition of the oral sex simulation toy, noticeably updated to keep all customer critiques in mind. Lelo’s obvious catering to their customer base is reflected in the updates to the Sona model – updates that made this toy that much more orgasm-inducing!
Great starting point: classy and slick packaging
I’m a total sucker for minimalistic, dark packaging designs so I immediately knew I wouldn’t be throwing this packaging away.
The outer box is compact and well-built, showing the purple hue of the Lelo 2 Cruise stimulator through the front window. The box is matte-black on the outside, with the toy’s name centered on the bottom of the box in gold lettering. That’s a great complimentary touch, adding a splash of class to the already-very-slick outer packaging.
The clitoral stimulator and charger are nestled in an inner black box in the same matte color as the outside, with both items laying separately in the box. You’ll get 3 additional elements too:
- A satin case;
- A personal lubricant sample and;
- A full set of instructions.
The satin case provides a very sensual touch, which is a great way to add extra stimulation to their customers’ senses.
I can’t say that I’m disappointed so far!
But let’s turn the spotlight to what really matters – the oral sex simulator itself.
Specs and facts
This toy is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also very soft to the touch. Some would even be compelled to cuddle with it after!
Going full biology class, here are some facts about the Cruise 2 oral stimulator:
- It comes in three colors: black, purple and cerise
- It weighs 4.8oz. or 136 g
- Its dimensions are 3.9 x 3.4 x 2.2 inches or 9.9 x 8.6 x 5.5 cm
The stimulator mouthpiece is made out of soft medical-grade silicone, that doesn’t catch dust as much as regular silicone. It’s quite soft and squishy which is a calming note in all clit stimulators. Furthermore, I’ve found that this new Lelo Sona stimulator version has a bigger and deeper opening. This improvement caters to a wider audience, as clitorises differ in size, shape and receptiveness to stimuli.
Additionally, a deeper mouthpiece means the membrane won’t stop pulsating and you won’t have to deal with ruined orgasms because you got too enthusiastic!
The backing is made from ABS plastic, which frankly I would’ve omitted for a full silicone design – but hey, to each their own!
The surface is soft to the touch and the toy is as light as a feather, making it perfect for enduring long play sessions without having your hand fall asleep. The elegant curves are adorned with three delicate, slightly rubbery buttons on the side, making for a secure grip when you’re busting out the waterworks.
The ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons control the intensity and the strength of the vibrations, and the middle ‘()’ button changes between the stimulation patterns offered by the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise.
The toy has 12 vibration patterns and a wide range of intensity levels – a whole new world of patterns and intensity combinations to explore. From soft waves of pleasure to intense, deep stimulation – this toy can help float your boat!
The charger plugs in on the bottom of the Cruise 2, taking roughly 2 hours for a full charge. That’s a decent amount of charge time, considering the Lelo Sona 2 offers a 2-hour playtime as well as powerful sonic waves.
Two hours of playtime is more than enough to enjoy every possible aspect of this toy. Trust me, a little goes a long way with this prime specimen in the world of women’s sex toys! Maybe use a remote-controlled dildo while you’re at it.
Anyway, that’s not even the half of it – the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise can keep its charge for 90 days after it’s plugged off from a power source. That’s a full 3 months of standby without losing any battery percentage.
Talk about being DTF at any time!

Want some special features?
Well, the Lelo Sona Cruise 2 oral stimulator offers Lelo’s revolutionary ‘cruise control’ technology. This feature helps maintain the exact chosen power level, rather than dulling the toy’s power when you put some more pressure on your clit! This feature means you never have to hold back, and you can choose to use the Sona 2 Cruise holding it carefully or pressing it firmly against your body – the pleasure is all yours!
The technology can feel gimmicky when you first hear about it because most of us have fallen for fake marketing ploys, but trust me ‘cruise control’ it’s far from it.
This is the thing I rave about the most when it comes to climaxing with the Lelo Sona 2 stimulator – it frees up your mind and doesn’t distract you from the experience itself. Press it as tightly as you want – the waves still keep their consistency while you handle your intense orgasmic convulsions!
The Sona Cruise 2 provides very precise stimulation – and it’s different. Yes, really.
Going into this review, I was certainly not prepared for what the Cruise 2 had in store for me. This lady loves her wands and vibrators, so opting to try a ‘touchless’ clit stimulator was very experimentative for me.
It took me a few tries to find the Sona Cruise 2 sweet spot and it was without a doubt, awkward at times. I’m not used to letting it sit there and do its thing, instead of pressing it hard against my body, as I would with a wand or vibrator. I’m not entirely sure what I expected, but this toy has a kick! Apparently, the orgasms are next-level when it’s this type of stimulus! My vast experience with women’s sex toys didn’t prepare me for what came next.
Imagine if the best head you’ve ever received and your favorite vibrator had a baby. That’s how the orgasms feel with the Lelo Sona 2 – but it takes a bit to get there. Why?
Well, classic oral sex simulators or vibrators work on accelerated motorized physical vibrations. Instead of that, the sonic waves produced by the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise penetrate slowly, deep into every nerve ending, causing pleasurable convulsions without any discomfort.
As one does, I started with the lowest possible level of intensity and moved upward. I didn’t get far before the first convulsions started – and they started in earnest! The low-to-midrange frequencies of this clit stimulator were enough to get me all hot and bothered in minutes without causing any soreness afterward – and your sensitive clit will thank you for it!
Let’s get physical
My vague high school level physics knowledge was instantly triggered when I thought of the phrase “sonic waves”. Physics laws state that waves travel faster in water, so in the middle of writing the review, it dawned on me to try Sona 2 Cruise while taking a bath.
And I did. Of course I did.
I had to – for science!
Indeed, Lelo Sona 2’s 100% waterproof design helped my little experiment come to fruition!
The stimulator’s powerful membrane was the main cause of the wave dispersion in the bathtub. I chose the same level of intensity as I did while using it dry, and the resulting waves again massaged and stimulated all the right pressure points. This builds up to a deep and intense climax, intensely felt all the way down to my tippy toes!
Increasing the intensity to a medium-high frequency makes for a mind-blowing squirting orgasm that cannot be recreated by any human!
Take that, exes!
Also, as it’s waterproof, the Lelo 2 Sona is perfectly safe to clean using an antibacterial gel, or a sex toy cleaner of your choosing.
The Sona 2 Cruise feels fantastic and covers all the bases for my needs. It provided intense sensations that penetrated deep into the internal parts of my clitoris and were transmitted all over my body. I came close to squirting while using it too.
The thoroughgoing ‘Cruise Control’ mode is a must-try when you want to sit back and enjoy the self-fluctuating intensity. Try it anywhere – in your bath, bed, alone or with a partner – you’re still gonna have a great time!
It’s certainly a unique way to explore self-love and self-care while experimenting with some new and innovative women’s sex toys.
Ride those waves, ladies – and careful with the decibels!
