The Lelo Sona Cruise might be the best vibrator I’ve ever tried – and it’s currently on sale with 15% off

There’s a new class of tech-savvy sex toys that are unlike anything else your orgasm has ever seen. The latest incarnation also happens to be the best vibrator I’ve ever tried — I’m pretty sure the technology it uses will revolutionise the future of all pleasure products. Yeah, it’s that good.

Unlike traditional vibes (which, duh, use vibration to stimulate your sensitive spots), a new batch of sonic vibrators creates airwaves around your clitoris to suck it upward, stimulating more of your clit than you probably thought possible. I’d tried vibrators like this before and let me tell you, damn. But the sonic vibrator from LELO, the company responsible for some of the most high-end sex toys on the market, has totally revolutionized my orgasm.

The LELO Sona Cruise, a sleek “sonic massager ” with different vibration modes and intensity settings, and a head that looks like a little mouth, is a true game-changer. Unlike other vibes, you don’t need to move the Sona Cruise at all — place the mouth over your clitoris and it does all the work for you. The result? A deliciously good orgasm without having to lift a finger.

Sonic sex toys I’ve tried before (like the Womanizer and the Satisfyer) vibrate very softly because their main function is suction — it feels like they’re reaching deep within your core, pulling an orgasm out of you. The LELO Sona Cruise feels more like a vibrator, with extremely powerful vibrations on the surface of the clitoris. This surprised me, since the press release emailed to me said it “stimulates the entire clitoris — even the parts you don’t see — with an eager, fluttering sonic hum, for a different kind of orgasm produced by the gentle deep-tissue massage of sonic waves.” That wasn’t my experience: The vibration felt very concentrated on the head.

Still, the sonic vibration action was good. It created a prolonged climax after a sensual buildup, the kind of luxuriously drawn-out orgasm that still has you feeling tingly minutes later. While its competitors aim to get women off quickly — and do a damn good job at it — the LELO Sona Cruise aims for more sustained pleasure. And it succeeds too: My orgasms from this one take more like four or five minutes, rather than two or three, but they follow a very distinctive arc. Around a minute or two before climax, my vagina starts having singular contractions spaced a few seconds apart, each of which feels like its own mini orgasm. I’d describe the process as more of a hill than a mountain with a sharp peak.
