An entire world of pleasure and sensation opened up from that first orgasm. The sheer joy I felt over the responses of my own body felt magical. A far cry from the shame I felt in my teenage years. Just like that dress with pockets, I wanted to tell everyone I knew about the wondrousness of self-pleasure. I didn’t know anyone, but I had a public space to share. And so I did.
Over the years, I began to review sex toys, like the original SONA Cruise and now the SONA 2 Cruise. I try sex toys to tell other people my experiences. Like the reality that sonic waves against my clit nearly turn me inside out with pleasure. Like letting people know that you can use quiet sex toys in a home with no privacy (hi to my kids across the hall who can hear me whisper the walls are so thing) as long as you can choke back your own cries of pleasure.
I don’t share because I think everyone will have the same experience, but to help other people find a sex toy that suits their needs or eliminate one that won’t. Plus, I do it normalize my experience with sexual pleasure. So we’re going to talk about heartbeat-like throbs in my clit, and we’re going to talk about squirting. Both to share and to help other women realize there’s nothing wrong with those moments, that they’re normal.
The more voices that join in to talk about the sex toys we love (and hate), the more shopping for a sex toy becomes like shopping for anything else. I won’t buy a new TV without reading at least a dozen reviews, and I certainly won’t buy a new sex toy without reading a dozen reviews. The only thing in that example that society deems a “normal” activity is shopping for the TV. Which is why it’s so important that we continue to tell people about the sex toys we love -- either publicly or privately with friends we trust.
It’s one step in reducing stigma and shame about sexual pleasure, masturbation, and the toys that provide it, but it also helps get more great sex toys into more bedrooms and hands -- and against sensitive body parts that crave extra sensation.
So, How Good is the SONA 2 Cruise?
How can I tease you with mentions of the SONA 2 Cruise, brag about my life talking about sex toys, and not mention my experience? Full disclosure, I received the SONA 2 Cruise from LELO in exchange for an honest review. I’m a clit girl... meaning that’s my hot button, my fun zone, my happy place, my on switch. However, my clit is a bit of a diva... or a Goldilocks. She doesn’t like vibrations to be too much or too little, but just right. That's what makes the SONA 2 Cruise so great, I can adjust to what feels good to my body while focusing the stimulation where I crave it most, directly on my clit.
While I’m a lover of big and direct vibrations, SONA 2 Cruise is unique because it doesn’t use vibrations -- it uses sonic waves. (Mind. Blown.) If you put your finger on the opening, you can feel the air pulsing, gently.
Think of it as a massage for your clitoris and just your clitoris. So if you know your clit is THE spot for you, and you want something other than the I-AM-VIBRATOR-HERE-ME-ROAR types of sex toys, the SONA 2 Cruise joins the ranks of beloved clit stimulators as one to use and enjoy over and over again.
And if you love it, talk about it so others learn just how normal masturbation and sexual pleasure really are.
