Lelo Sila Review: Section 8

LELO Sona 2 vs. LELO Sila: A Detailed Comparison

As part of my guide on the best clit suckers, I have tested the LELO Sona 2 Cruise, LELO Sila Cruise, and over 20 other similar toys. Although Sila and Sona2 have similar shapes, motor power, and patterns, the sensation they provide differs greatly due to the distinctive designs of their ‘mouths.’

Sila 2 vs Sona Opening

The Sona 2’s narrow opening, with thick walls, focuses the motor’s power into waves that draw in the clitoris, delivering very intense pinpoint stimulation. The defined ridge accentuates sensations as the waves transfer to the labia, heightening intensity. The stimulation is so powerful that it borders on being abusive.

In contrast, the Sila has the same motor capacity but a twice as large oval opening that spreads the pulses over a broader surface area. Its flat, wide edge softens the sensations as they transfer more diffusely across the labia. The sensation is gentler overall, with waves gently massaging the clitoris.

These experiences explain their appeal to different user groups. The LELO Sona 2, with its strong motor and intense nozzle design, is better suited for users desiring more vigorous clitoral sensation. Of the clitoral suction toys tested, the Sona 2 provides the most powerful stimulation, bordering on uncomfortable. I recommend it only to those seeking extremely intense sensations. It delivers strong, pinpoint stimulation that leads to very fast and sudden orgasms, that left me numb after.

I would recommend the LELO Sila to those who prefer more moderate, relaxing stimulation for building deeper orgasms that last longer and without subsequent numbness. It is perfect for multiple orgasms in a row.

In the video below, you can see the difference in the waves Sona 2 and Sila create.

Cruise Technology is an automated feature that detects when a toy’s motor speed decreases due to pressure against the body. Cruise control engages pulse wave modulation to regain speed when skin contact slows the motor. This prevents unwanted dramatic drops in vibration intensity if the user unintentionally presses the toy firmly against the skin.

Simply put, it automatically increases the intensity when you push the toy to your skin.

Sona 2 Cruise vs SIla Cruise Comparison

My experience with Lelo Sila Cruise

Before testing the Sila Cruise massager, I had to read some reviews to ensure I was positioning it correctly. After figuring that out, I applied some lube, set the device, and started it up. And unlike almost everyone else who found the suction insufficient, it was even overwhelming for me in the higher settings.

It massages not only the clitoris but also the area around it, which I am not really into. The vibrations are indeed deep and intense. As Sila Cruise reverberates, I could feel the air pressure blowing onto my clit without directly touching it. This feels amazing! It is followed by a swooning orgasmic feeling that pours all over my body.

But the nozzle of the toy is what made the experience a bit strange for me, at least during my first tests.

After about 3 or 4 sessions, I got used to the feeling and was then able to take full advantage of the toy.

I liked the Sila Cruise – its clever design is lightweight and comfortable to hold during use. This is due to the concave part (the golden circle), where you can comfortably position your fingers. I also liked the soft silicone nozzle that vibrates during use and adds to the whole experience.

Yes, the Sila Cruise’s opening is twice as wide compared to most clitoral massagers, but once you get used to the feeling, it becomes a useful feature that I am grateful for.

As for the cruise control feature (which makes the price of the toy a bit more expensive compared to the regular version) – I can imagine it being useful for those who need more intensity just before climax. However, I am not one of them. I do not usually press the toy firmly against my clitoris, even before orgasm, so I can not say that it adds to my pleasure sessions.

My favorite aspect about the Sila Cruise is that orgasms come gradually and I can easily go for multiple orgasms per single session without desensitizing my clit.

My experience with Lelo Sona 2 Cruise

The Lelo Sona 2 Cruise is not for everyone. This vibrator is designed for women who enjoy powerful, pinpoint stimulation. Even the lowest settings are intense enough to give me an orgasm, but it’s a very different orgasm than the one I get with the Sila Cruise. While Sila builds a gradual, leisurely climax, the Sona 2 rushes the body to achieve maximum pleasure in a matter of seconds.

Sona 2 Cruise is great for women who like a little rougher stimulation or for women with a lower, less intense sexual libido. The secret of Sona 2 impressive intensity is that it not only stimulates the tip, but also the shaft, and hood of the clit deep inside me.

I used the Sona 2 Cruise on the lowest intensity setting, and it came so fast that I did not even have time to realize what was happening. But I do not like that kind of orgasm. It’s like something is pushing me to come, and after I do, the whole post-orgasmic feeling is gone. Sure, the orgasm is quick and super easy to achieve, but Sona 2 feels more like a quickie that can not give me a deeply satisfying experience.

LELO Sona 2 Cruise vs LELO Sila Cruise Review

Sila 2’s Cruise function works wonders if you like it more intensely before you climax. Even on the lowest setting, the intensity is enough to give you a quick orgasm in no time.

Speaking of intense and targeted stimulation, Lelo recently released their Dot clitoral toy – it is indeed worth checking it!

Since the orgasms triggered by Lelo Sona 2 Cruise are indeed very strong; I usually can not go for another session right after I climax. I have to wait and calm down before using it again.

On another note, in terms of design, the Sila Cruise is my undisputed winner – it’s lightweight and feels comfortable in my hand, while the Sona 2 Cruise is a bit clunky and feels a bit odd in my hand. Like I have to twist my hand in strange ways while holding it against my clit.

The stimulation intensity of the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise and the Lelo Sila Cruise is the same. But it feels completely different because these toys are built differently. Sona 2 has a small nozzle of about 1 cm, while Sila’s is twice as wide.

Also, the silicone part that comes in contact with the skin feels completely different. In Sona 2 it is ribbed and sturdy, while in Sila it is inclined and soft.

To me, Sona 2 feels super intense, and Sila is softer. Both toys give off rumbling vibrations that penetrate deep into the body, not just on the surface.


Lelo Sila 2 Cruise is much quieter compared to the Sila Cruise. These are the results I measured on the highest (constant) vibration settings on both vibrators:

Note that the noise level is measured while the toys are NOT in contact with my body.


Premium quality materials have only been used for the production of both clit-suckers. But while the Sona 2 Cruise feels more sturdy and ridged, the Sila  Cruise is sifter and (for me) feels more comfortable when applied to my labia minora.

LELO Sona 2 Cruise vs LELO Sila Cruise Design

The faux-gold circle, part of both toys where the LELO brand is located, is also completely body safe, made of ABS-plastic, but it does not come in contact with the body.


The design of the Lelo Sona 2 Cruise and the Lelo Sila Cruise makes all the difference in sensation, power, and comfort. Since both toys pulse at the same pace, the different shapes and nozzle sizes make the whole experience.

While the Sona 2 is very focused and targets only the clitoris due to the small nozzle, the vibrations on the Sila feel less intense and broader. Obviously, it’s because of the wider nozzle.

As for comfort when holding the toy, I did not hold it properly when I first used the Sona 2 Cruise. I should have held it upside down with the buttons facing me, but I did the opposite. I realized something was wrong after holding it that way for a while. It was quite uncomfortable and practically impossible to operate the toy.

And then I turned it upside down, and everything started to make sense.

The same goes for the LELO Sila Cruise toy – so the buttons should be easily accessible during use, not the other way around. It makes a big difference!

Both toys can be used during PIV intercourse. However, I find it hard to concentrate on my performance because I am busy trying to trigger my orgasm.

But if you are not like me, I can say that I find both toys pleasurable when I am on top and in the missionary position. My partner says he does not feel the vibrations that my body absorbs.


The exact size of the LELO Sona 2 Cruise is 99 x 87 x 56 mm / 3.9 x 3.4 x 2.2 in.

Both clitoral suckers are rechargeable via USB. However, these toys use regular USB cables and not magnetic ones. Insert the end of the charging cable, which resembles a needle, into the hole at the bottom of the toy to start charging. Connect a laptop or USB wall adapter to the cable.

Sona 2 Cruise vs Sila Cruise Charging

Sona 2 Cruise and Sila Cruise provide up to 2 hours of playtime on a full charge, which takes about 2 hours. A full charge will last for about 3 months in standby mode when you aren’t using the vibrator.


On each toy, there are 3 identical convex buttons, which are easy to distinguish.

LELO Sona 2 Cruise vs Lelo Sila Cruise Controls

To start using the Lelo Sona 2/Sila Cruise, you need to press and hold the middle button for about 5 seconds.

Both clitoral blowers work at high intensity, so I recommend trying the toy on your palm. You can switch to the lowest intensity by pressing the ‘-‘ button until you find your perfect pace. Increase the tempo by pressing the ‘+’ button. Note that with the Sila Cruise, you have 8 modes, while the Sila 2 Cruise offers 12 modes.


Both clit suckers are easy to clean – simply wash the Sona 2 Cruise/Sila Cruise with soapy water or with a sex toy cleaner. Be sure to clean the toy before and after each use, and always let it dry completely before putting it away.

Since the toys are completely waterproof, you don’t have to worry about water entering the charging port.


Sona 2 Cruise costs around $150, and Sila Cruise is around $190. Both sex toys have a 1-year warranty and 10-year quality guarantee period.

Sona 2 Cruise or Sila Cruise final thoughts

If I had to choose between these two clit blowing vibrators, I would definitely choose the Sila Cruise. The first few sessions felt a bit strange, as there is no comparable sex toy with such a wide opening, but after getting used to it and figuring out my perfect intensity and pattern, I came to the conclusion that I prefer it to the Sona 2 Cruise. Gradual, harmonious orgasms are my choice for a long weekend solo session.

The Sona 2 Cruise is an excellent choice for women who prefer very targeted, pinpoint stimulation that can be very intense. It is easy to position and provides quick orgasms.

You can get the LELO Sona 2 or LELO Sila Cruise from LELO’s official website! Why do I recommend the LELO website? Because LELO means luxury, precision, and guaranteed satisfaction.
