BRAND SNAPSHOT

Lelo was established in 2003, when three designers gathered in a Stockholm townhouse 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 helped Lelo become one of the top names in the world 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, boy, have I got a lot to say. Keep reading my Lelo Sona 2 review for all the details on this award-winning sex toy.

UNBOXING THE LELO SONA 2: WHAT’S INCLUDED?

The Lelo Sona 2 comes in a sturdy black box that you can (and absolutely should!) repurpose for easy toy storage. In fact, I recommend storing your toys in original packaging or a proper toy storage case whenever you can. Storing toys in a protected, dust-free environment is a great way to maintain their integrity over time.

Inside the box, you’ll find a charger, user manual, and warranty registration card. The Lelo Sona 2 is backed by a 1-year warranty as well as a 10-year quality guarantee, which is one of the most generous in the industry! Just don’t forget to validate the warranty by visiting Lelo’s website and entering the serial number found on your registration card. 

Also included in the box is a cute satin carrying case for your toy, as well as a travel-sized packet of the brand’s water-based lube. For me, this is a really nice perk. Not only is Lelo’s lube luxuriously slippery, but including it in the box means you can get down to business right away.

Finally, 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, without further ado, let’s see what it’s all about.

LELO SONA 2: IS IT WORTH THE HYPE?

From end to end, the Lelo Sona 2 is about the size of my palm. My hands are pretty small, so this toy is definitely on the petite side. It also weighs just 4 ounces, so it’s a nice option if you’re looking for a clitoral stimulator that’s lightweight and easy to grip. 

As far as construction goes, 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

How does the Lelo Sona 2 work? Well, it’s not exactly a vibrator, nor is it a suction toy. It’s 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. 

When I say “clitoris,” you probably think of that pea-sized magic button that feels great when you rub it, right? But that’s just the small, external part of the clitoris, also known as the glans clitoris. 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, and heightens sensation and lubrication when stimulated. That’s why it’s important to remember that the G-spot isn’t actually one spot, nor is the clitoris one little button. Rather, your internal and external clitoral anatomy work together in happy, juicy unison. 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, more prolonged orgasm. The folks at Lelo liken it to the feeling of music flowing through your whole 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!). 

How do you use the 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. Of course, it may take a moment for you to find the intensity that’s just right. If you prefer indirect, gentler stimulation, I suggest letting the mouth of the toy hover over your clit rather than press into it. If you decide you want to increase or decrease intensity, the Sona has 12 different pleasure settings to explore. 

The middle button turns this toy on and off, and also switches up the sonic pattern so you can enjoy steady pulsing or more staccato sensations. The + and - buttons adjust the speed so you can experiment with everything from a slow, gentle murmur to an almost unbearably intense pulsation. 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!). 

On a personal note, the first time I used the Lelo Sona 2 — and every time since — I was blown away by a climax that seemed to come from a place I’d never tapped into before. The kind of orgasm that left me clutching the toy, writhing and drooling in a puddle of my own sweat. When I combined it with penetrative pleasure from my partner, I’m pretty sure I reached nirvana.

SHOULD I BUY THE LELO SONA 2?

Let’s start with what I like about the Lelo Sona 2:

  • Waterproof: This toy is 100% waterproof, not just water resistant. That means you can enjoy it in the bath, in the shower, on the beach — anywhere it’ll get soaking wet. Plus, a waterproof toy is nice and easy to clean. However, you’ll want to keep some lube nearby if you’re playing in the water, as water tends to wash away the body’s natural lubrication rather quickly. 
  • Travel-Sized: Another great thing about this toy is its size! It's small, lightweight, and designed in a sort of kidney bean shape that fits into the palm of your hand. As someone with small hands, I appreciate a toy that’s easy to maneuver and hold.  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 perfect choice. 
  • Easy to Use: A friend who kindly tested this toy described it as "very efficient while requiring almost no manual effort," and I have to agree. If you want to just lie back and do absolutely nothing but hold your toy until you cum, the Sona 2 fits the bill. Just place the mouth of the toy wherever it feels best, and let those pulsing sonic waves do the rest. 
  • 12 Pleasure Settings: The Lelo Sona 2 has 12 pleasure settings, so take some time to experiment with different pulsation patterns and speeds until you find the intensity that’s perfect for you. If you prefer more gentle, indirect stimulation, you might want to start with the lowest setting and let the toy hover over your clit until you’re ready for direct contact. Keep in mind that the Sona is great for nipple play, too, and the intensity settings you like on your clit may be different from what you like on your nipples. So, again, take some time to play around and see how your body responds.
  • Uniquely Powerful: If I had to pick my favorite thing about this toy, it has to be the way its pulsing waves stimulate my whole clitoral network. It feels like my entire vulva gradually swells and throbs in unison with the sonic pulses until, sometimes without warning, I cum harder than I knew I could. And while it’s true that my go-to toy for clit stimulation is usually a wand-style vibrator, this is a great way to switch up my usual routine. If you’re looking to explore new sensations outside of your trusty vibrator, I heartily recommend giving the Lelo Sona 2 a try.

LELO SONA 2 COMPLAINTS 

  • Intense: For some people, this toy may be a bit too intense. Personally, I find it to be relatively gentle (especially on the lowest setting), but I’ve heard some say that its focused stimulation is too much for direct clitoral contact. This just goes to show that every body is different, and everyone responds to stimulation differently. But if you’re looking specifically for soft, gentle, more indirect stimulation, a less intense toy may be a better pick. 
  • Noise: It’s worth noting that this toy is 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 considerably quieter when you press it into your body. For this reason, those who prefer to let the Sona 2 hover above their clit may find the sound a little distracting.  
  • Needs Lots of Lube: Finally, 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 very smooth, but the ridge around the mouth does have the potential to feel abrasive unless it’s very lubricated. So be sure to keep some 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:

  • Perky Nipples: Whether you’re preparing yourself for nipple clamps or simply want a quick way to perk ‘em up, the Lelo Sona 2 is a nice option. Just position your nipple so it’s flush in the mouth of the toy, press the on button, and watch the magic happen. 

  • Wash Care: 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 toy cleaner and Q-tip to give it a thorough cleaning after use.

  • Edging: This is a fantastic toy for edging because of the deep and gradual way it stimulates your internal clitoral network. If you use this toy to edge, I recommend lifting the mouth so it hovers above your clit as you get closer to climax. This can help to prolong and heighten your orgasm when the time comes!

  • FINAL THOUGHTS 

    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!

    FAQs

    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.
