Lelo Sona review: we test out the “Rolls-Royce of sex toys” 0 250

AT a recent event, I mentioned to someone that I was writing a Lelo Sona review, and she was quick to tell me it was the sex toy she compared all others to. High praise indeed.

This is likely because of its patented SenSonic technology, which uses – as the name suggests – sonic waves and pulses instead of vibrations for a unique me-time experience.

Described as the “Rolls-Royce of sex toys” by one online reviewer and with plenty of others testifying to experiencing their first orgasm when they used it, this could be one to add to your shopping basket pronto.

Lelo Sona review: quick summary

I’m completely sold on the Lelo Sona 2. It’s so sophisticated, I’m hesitant to even refer to it as a toy. It’s not “sexy” in the way you would expect — and I mean that in the best way. It’s sleek, futuristic and looks like a device that knows what it’s doing.

It has eight distinctive settings that include short sharp bursts of repeated pressure, one sustained wave and a setting that varies, seemingly randomly, in its intensity. The downside of the last setting is that it is a little noisy as it moves between softer waves and firmer ones, so that might take you a little by surprise if you’re not expecting it.

In that vein, the buttons on the front of the device that control the intensity weren’t as responsive as I was expecting but pressing harder or even taking the nozzle off the skin completely are very effective alternative ways of adjusting the pressure without interrupting your solo session.

Something the Lelo Sona 2 has that other similar products don’t is that it’s 100% waterproof, so you can take your bath or shower time to the next level without worrying about being left with a broken toy on your hands.

All of these unique features are reflected in its price point; the Lelo Sona isn’t cheap at £89 but is more reasonably priced than the Womanizer Premium Eco, which is very similar in its offering. It is fully rechargeable with a battery life of an hour – plenty of time for a quickie or a longer session – and it comes with a comprehensive manual which, for me, is the sign of any accomplished sex toy. And if there’s one word to describe the Lelo Sona, it’s accomplished.

Lelo Sona review: full review


When I opened the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise I was happily surprised by its clever, discreet packaging. After unwrapping it from the nondescript cardboard box it came in, I saw another black box with an opaque plastic panel on the front which prevented me from immediately seeing in. However, when I turned the box to a certain angle, I was able to catch my first glimpse of the Lelo Sona.

Small and sleek, it looks more like an award in its plush packaging than a sex toy — the first sign that this was going to be a high-quality experience. It came with a silky black bag, a charger, and (my favourite thing) a comprehensive, cover-all-bases instruction manual.

After plugging it in for around an hour — no batteries required, which is a bonus — it was ready to go. It has a battery life of an hour in total, so there’s no need to worry about losing charge just as you’re about to orgasm.

Because of the patented SenSonic technology, this clitoral massager is a little different from others on the market. It works by sending waves deep into the body to amplify the depth and quality of your climaxes. It also reaches 75% more of the clitoris than a normal vibrator, which is an excellent thing seeing as the clitoris is home to 8,000 nerve endings that are all waiting to be stimulated.

Eight vibration patterns make this happen, and they are controlled by the central button on the front, which is also the key to turning the device on and off. There are settings ranging from short, staccato bursts to longer options, with the final of the eight settings unpredictably upping the intensity every now and then, although I’d recommend building up to this one as it can be quite intense to start with.

The slight downside if being discreet is high on your list of requirements is that it’s louder than you might expect because it is so powerful. However, it is still discreet enough that no one will hear it through a closed door, whether you choose to use it in your bedroom or, if you’ve taken advantage of the 100% waterproof material, in the bathroom.


So how do you use the Lelo Sona? It’s fairly simple: just place the nozzle over your clitoris, hold it still and wait for the magic to happen. Unlike with the Womanizer Premium Eco, you can move it around without any discomfort, but you don’t need to. The best way to make the most out of this product is to take advantage of those sonic waves.

For a more intense experience, press down harder and then use the buttons on the front to control the overall power of the vibrations. If you’re looking for less pressure, take it off your skin completely and hold the toy above your clitoris. Because of the sonic waves, you’ll continue to very gently feel the effect. If this is still too much, place the nozzle next to the clitoris instead.

How much does the Lelo Sona cost?

With an RRP of £119, the Lelo Sona is on the pricier side, making it more expensive than other clitoral massagers, like the Lovehoney Magic Touch Rechargeable Clitoral Finger Vibrator, which sells for £39.99. However, it is cheaper than its closest competitor, the Womanizer Premium, which retails at £169.


Where to buy the Lelo Sona

There are a number of retailers that sell the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise including online beauty giants Beauty Bay, Look Fantastic, Feel Unique and Cult Beauty. Predictably, it’s also available from Amazon.

Or if you buy it from Lelo itself, it’s currently got 25% off.

Lelo Sona review: the verdict

Yes, yes, yes – pun absolutely intended. This sex toy gives you everything: a classy experience from start to finish, a sleek design and something for everyone, whether that’s intense or gentle, sustained or staccato.

I love this toy, and after a quick look on the Lelo website, so does everyone else. The best way to sum up my thoughts is by sharing the words of one happy online customer. “All I can say is good luck to future partners.” Good luck indeed.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 41

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
