Meet the Lelo Sona 2, a “clitorally mind-blowing” sonic massager designed to stimulate the entire clitoris — not just the part you can see. It employs sonic technology to deliver pleasurable pulses throughout the whole clitoral network for a longer, more powerful orgasm.
But how does it work, and is it the right fit for you?
Well, read on, because this Lelo Sona 2 review answers all your questions about how it works, who it's best for, and everything else you need to know to make the best buying decision.
Lelo was established in 2003, when three designers gathered in Stockholm to explore how digital technology and sexual pleasure intertwine. These discussions led to the development of Lily, the very first Lelo toy. Lily’s instant success and rave reviews propelled Lelo into the top tier of luxury sex toys.
20 years and many popular products later, Lelo has amassed a huge number of mentions and devoted followers. This review focuses on one Lelo product in particular — the Sona 2. And after thoroughly testing it myself, I have a lot to say!

Of course, the main event is the Lelo Sona 2 itself — the toy said to send heavenly sonic waves pulsing through your clitoris for what may be the deepest orgasm of your life. So, let’s see what it’s all about!
How Does the Lelo Sona 2 Work?
The Lelo Sona 2 is engineered to use reverberating sonic waves that send pulsing sensations throughout your entire clitoris — not just the part you can see. But, before I elaborate on that, let’s talk about the clitoris for a moment.
What is the Clitoris?
When I say “clitoris,” you might think of that pea-sized magic button that feels great when you rub it, right? Well, that’s just the external part of the clitoris, and there’s a lot more going on internally. In fact, the majority of the clitoris isn’t visible at all, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be stimulated.
Your internal clitoral network plays a major role in arousal thanks to all the erectile tissue that swells, expands, lubricates, and heightens sensation when stimulated. The erogenous zone known as the G-spot isn’t actually one spot, but rather a pleasure packed part of the entire clitoral structure.
Simply put, your clitoris is like an iceberg, and the part you can see is merely the tip.
The Lelo Sona 2 was designed with the entire clitoris in mind. Its sonic waves deliver pulsing stimulation to your clitoral network for a deeper, more powerful orgasm. Some liken it to the feeling of music flowing through your body when you stand close to a bumpin’ speaker. But instead of feeling that pounding in your chest, you feel it in your clit (DJ, turn it up!).
Construction and Design
From end to end, the Lelo Sona 2 is about the size of my palm. It weighs in at just 4 ounces, making it a nice option for those in search of a petite clitoral stimulator that’s lightweight and easy to grip.
The Lelo Sona 2 is mostly made of body-safe silicone, which is both waterproof and super-smooth to the touch. There’s a little panel on the backside of the toy made from ABS plastic which is also body-safe and waterproof, making this a great bathtime toy.

Features and Settings
To use the Lelo Sona 2, simply position the mouth of the toy on the head of your clit, press the middle button to turn it on, and you’re off to the races.
It may take a moment to find the intensity that feels right, and if you prefer gentle stimulation, let the mouth of the toy hover over your clit rather than press into it. If you want to increase or decrease intensity, the Sona has 12 different settings, which include everything from a slow murmur to an almost unbearably pleasurable pulsation.
Press the middle button to switch up the pulsing pattern, and use the + and - buttons to adjust the intensity and speed. Personally, I keep the intensity right in the middle when I’m using it on my clit, and turn it all the way up when using it on my nipples (yes, this is a great toy for nipple play!).
My Personal Experience with the Lelo Sona 2
The first time I used the Lelo Sona 2, I was blown away by a climax that seemed to come from a place I had not tapped into before.
And even now, every time I use it, I experience the kind of orgasm that leaves me clutching the toy, writhing and drooling in a puddle of my own sweat. When I combine it with penetrative pleasure from my partner, I’m pretty sure I reach nirvana.
Should I Buy the Lelo Sona 2?
Before you click add to cart and buy one, let’s recap the main perks and potential pitfalls so you can decide if the Lelo Sona 2 is the right fit for you.
Lelo Sona 2 Pros
This toy is 100% waterproof, which means you can enjoy it in the bath, the shower, on the beach — anywhere it might become soaking wet. That said, be sure to keep some lube nearby, as water tends to wash away the body’s natural lubrication rather quickly.

It's great for travel
The Lelo Sona 2 is small, lightweight, and has a bean shaped design that fits into the palm of your hand. If you’re looking for a discreet, travel-sized toy you can stow in a purse or carry-on bag, the Sona 2 is a fantastic choice.
It's easy to use
A friend who tested this toy described it as "very efficient while requiring almost no manual effort," and I have to agree. If you want a toy that lets you just lay back and do absolutely nothing but hold onto it until you cum, the Sona 2 fits the bill. Just place the mouth of the toy wherever it feels best, and let those pulsing waves do the rest.
It has 12 pleasure settings
The Lelo Sona 2 has a pretty wide array of settings, so take some time to experiment with pulsation patterns and speeds until you find the intensity that’s perfect for you.
It's uniquely powerful
My favorite thing about this toy is the way its pulsing waves deeply stimulate my whole clitoral network. It feels like my entire vulva throbs in unison with the sonic pulses until, sometimes without warning, I climax harder than I expected. If you’re looking to explore new sensations outside of your trusty vibrator, give the Lelo Sona 2 a try.
Lelo Sona 2 Potential Cons
There are a few things about the Lelo Sona 2 that some might consider to be drawbacks.
Some people find the Lelo Sona 2 to be too intense. Every body is different, and everyone responds to stimulation differently, but if you’re looking for soft and gentle stimulation, keep in mind that this toy has been dubbed as pretty powerful by most people.

It can be noisy
This toy is considerably louder when it’s not pressing into you. If you turn on the Sona 2 and think, “Okay, who said this toy was quiet?” keep in mind that it gets a lot quieter when pressed into your body.
It requires plenty of lube
I found that if the mouth of this toy isn’t thoroughly lubed up, its perimeter can feel kind of sharp. The silicone itself is quite smooth, but the ridge around the mouth has the potential to feel abrasive unless it’s very lubricated. So be sure to keep plenty of lube handy when playing with this toy!
Delicto Expert Tips
We’re nearing the end of my Lelo Sona 2 review, so allow me to pass on a few pointers from my experience with this toy:
Let the Sona 2 perk your nipples up
Whether you’re preparing yourself for nipple clamps or simply want a quick way to perk ‘em up, the Lelo Sona 2 can really come in handy. Just position your nipple so it’s flush in the mouth of the toy, press the on button, and watch the magic happen.
Use a Q-tip to clean the mouth
This toy is easy to clean, but don’t forget to wash the inside of its mouth, too! Lube and bodily fluids can accumulate in the toy’s mouth, so I like to use a Q-tip and toy cleaning spray to give it a thorough cleaning after use.
Enjoy some edging
This is a fantastic toy for edging because of the deep and gradual way it stimulates the internal clitoris. I recommend lifting the mouth so it hovers above your clit just as you get closer to climax. This can help to prolong and heighten your orgasm when the time comes!
Now that you’ve read up on the Lelo Sona 2, you’re ready to take it for a spin. Just be sure to clean, store, and take care of your toy properly so it can take care of you! And don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and TikTok for more product reviews, tutorials, and sex education!
How do you clean the Lelo Sona 2?
Because it’s 100% waterproof, feel free to wash the Lelo Sona 2 with mild soap and water or a toy cleaner. Because this toy is powered by a lithium-ion battery, it’s not safe to boil or steam.
Is the Lelo Sona loud?
The Lelo Sona 2 is very quiet when pressed against your body, and a little louder when it’s not. This toy’s Max Noise Level is 50 decibels, which is comparable to regular, indoor conversation or the whirring of an electric fan.
Is the Lelo Sona worth it?
Ultimately, the value of every toy comes down to personal preference! In my experience, the unique, full-body orgasms this toy delivers make it well worth the cost of admission.
