My guide to using the Sona / Cruise

I have had a lot of people ask me how to use the Sona Cruise, I know a lot of people have had trouble getting this to work for them and have said that it’s way too strong. So I thought why not write up a blog on it.

I don’t claim to be an expert when it comes to the Sona Cruise, but I have had a lot of practice with it and have managed to use it with great success.

About the Sona Cruise

For me the Sona took a LOT of getting used to, its unlike anything I have ever felt before which is not strange given it uses a new sonar technology. LELO claims that the Sona Cruise is the first product of its kind. Which stimulates the whole of the clitoris and not just the bit we see externally.

Believe it or not the clitoris is a lot bigger than you may think and most conventional sex toys use vibrations which stimulate only the very tip. LELO claim to have created a sex toy which penetrates right down to the core. Giving you a much more satisfying orgasm, which is stronger and longer lasting.


Because the Sona Cruise uses sonar technology, this toy doesn’t have to be in direct contact with the clitoris, it is for this reason that LELO claims the Sona and Sona Cruise allow you to have multiple orgasms.



Make sure the SONA is unlocked by pressing and holding the +and – buttons together for 3 seconds until the light turns on.

Press + button to turn on; press again to increase vibration strength.

Press () button to cycle through the 8 stimulation modes.

Press – button to reduce vibration strength; press and hold to turn off.

How to use the Sona Cruise

Okay so enough about what it does or is supposed to do, how the hell do you use the thing? Well the answer to that, is not that easy. It took me over the course of a week to get the hang of it. For me just pressing the Sona against my clitoris was the only thing that seemed to work. But this made having multiple orgasms harder to achieve and the vibrations for me where way too strong.

How to guide

Please remember this is just a guide, I can’t say this will work for everyone, but this is what worked for me.

  • Find the right setting for you.

This is a really important step, play around with the settings on the Sona, it has 8 settings to choose from. Place the Sona over the clitoris and see which one feels good to you. You can keep the Sona on its slowest power setting for this, you are not going for gold here, just trying all the settings out. If you find you are very sensitive, hover the Sona away from your clit a little.

  • Find the right position for you

You will want to get into a very comfortable position, one in which you can hold your hand in a steady position. This is important otherwise you will get very frustrated believe me. hehe.

Hold your Sona in your hand (Switched Off) and try to get into a position where the Sona is not touching your clit but just slightly hovering above it. Move in and out of this position to make sure that its easy for you to get into time and time again.

  • How to find the right distance for you (To hover or not to hover, that is the question)

I now recommend you switch the unit on to its lowest steady setting, and get into your preferred position. You will want to experiment with how close or how far from your clit you like it. Start as far out as your hand will bend, then work your way in until you find a distance that feels good to you. This can really help for those of you who are finding the Sona just way too powerful.

  • Putting it all together

Now that you know what setting feels good and what distance you like, it’s time to put it all together. Turn the Sona on and adjust it to the setting that you liked, get into your preferred position and then find the distance that felt good to you.

All that’s left to do is enjoy. It may take a while for the Sona to work. The orgasms build and build, and it feels like it’s happening forever which for me is everything I was hoping for. Well this is the experience i had anyway.

If for whatever reason the Sona doesn’t work for you without direct stimulation, then I recommend you try mixing things up, try different settings and positions. If this doesn’t work then it could be that this type of stimulation just doesn’t do it for you, this could mean that you will not be able to achieve multiple orgasms without a small delay whilst your clit recovers or that the Sona itself is just too powerful.

I hope this helps a few of you out, the Sona is by no means easy to use and if you are anything like me, the sensations are nothing like you will have felt before. It’s a completely new sensation. Like with most new things it takes a little getting used too but once you get it right and manage to get it to work for you, the orgasms you will have time and time again will be well worth the wait.
