LELO SILA Review: Read This Before You Buy!

by Jane Louis

SILA is a new clit stimulator from LELO! And it’s so soft and so beautiful. It is by far my favorite clit suction toy from LELO. Read on to know more about my experience with this toy!

SILA is LELO’s newest clit suction toy. It doesn’t stimulate like a conventional vibrator. Instead, it features eight sonic wave intensity levels and a strong suction head that will progressively pleasure your clit from 360 degrees.

Key Feature of SILA by LELO

1. Soft Touch & Elegant Design

SILA is made of high-quality body-safe silicone and ABS. The moment you hold this toy at hand, you will be impressed by its ultra-soft surface. It feels like touch a baby’s skin!

This beautiful little toy comes in three colors: Baby Pink, Lilac, and Aqua.

The golden reflective layers on the side add a luxury feel to the design. It truly is a sensational feast.

  • Exact Size: 80 x 75 x 35 mm / 3.1 x 2.9 x 1.4 In

2. Large Suction Month for Seamless Stimulation

SILA’s wide mouth gravitates around the center of your sweet spot, providing seamless attachment, along with comfort and satisfaction.

3. Unbelievably Powerful

Though only weight for 105g / 0.23lb, SILA is surprisingly powerful!

It emits contactless air wave stimulation, which gently penetrates through your skin and brings out the most mind-blowing orgasm.

With the 8 sonic wave intensity levels + 10 wave patterns, no doubt your climax will come in less than 3 mins.

4. 100% Waterproof

SILA is 100% submersible, which means it’s super easy to clean this toy. Also, you will be able to enjoy some wet play when taking a bath.

5. Travel-Look Included

Have you ever accidentally turned on your sex toy while traveling? Some unexpected buzz buzz noise can surely embarrass you!

With SILA, you can have peace of mind because it’s possible to lock/unlock the toy at any time!

6. Acceptable Noise Level

It’s not a quiet toy, but the noise level is acceptable. More specifically, I think it produces less noise than any other LELO’s clit suction toys.

How to Use LELO SILA?

You can control SILA with three convex buttons. And they are comfortable and smooth to press.

  • To turn on the SILA, simple press the “+” button; press the same button to increase suction strength (8 levels of intensity in total)
  • Press the “()” button to switch between the 8 suction modes
  • To reduce the suction intensity, press the “-” button
  • To turn off the SILA, press and hold the “()” button
  • To lock/unlock the SILA, press and hold the “+” and “-” buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds until the white LED light turns on

Battery-wise, it takes 2 hours to get SILA fully charged; and you can play with the toy for 2 full hours after each charge.

The user time is longer than the famous Satisfyer Pro 2 and is doubled from the 1st generation LELO Sona.

Besides, when the battery is running low, the LED on SILA will emit a blinking white light. It is a handy function to make sure your toy is always ready when you need an orgasm.

Packaging & What’s in the Box?

The package arrived at my place in less than three days, discreetly. Upon opening the box, I discovered the following items:

  • USB Charging Cable
  • Satin Storage Bag
  • Warranty Registration Card
  • Instruction Manual

My Experience with LELO SILA: Small, Light, Yet Unbelievably Powerful!

To my surprise, I am very impressed by LELO SILA, though I’ve more than 10 different models of clit suction toys from a range of brands.

I especially like the design of the suction head. The edge of the suction head is around 1cm (0.39 inch) and this is thicker than any other suction toys I’ve used.

Besides, it has a slightly inward curve that makes sure the toy can be attached to your skin or your clit almost seamlessly.

Because of that, it’s very easy to place it, meanwhile, your hand can press it over on the labia very stably during the stimulation.

In my opinion, this is by far the best type of design for suction heads.

I wouldn’t say it’s the strongest suction I’ve ever used, however, it produces the right amount! And that’s what matters after all.

When in use, your clit will be fully wrapped in the suction head; Instead of sucking your skin in, SILA emits sonic waves onto your skin.

During this process, every little part of the clit is taken care of. It feels so pleasant and so addicting.

I’ve been truly impressed by this little gorgeous toy!

I do have some complaints about the noise it makes…

Compare to other LELO’s suction toys, there are some improvements when it comes to the noise level. However, I still find it’s a bit louder than my Womanizers.

If you just turn on the SILA (without touch the skin), it produces a similar amount of noise as Womanizer’s toy. However, when I attach it to my skin, the noise from SILA doesn’t reduce; instead, I feel it even increased a little bit.

This is very different from any other clit toys I’ve used (e.g. Satisfyer Pro 2, Womanizer Liberty, We-vibe Melt). For other toys, there was always a reduction of noise when the toy is attached to the skin.

I don’t know why LELO is different in this aspect, probably due to how it stimulates the clit?

What Are the Differences Between LELO SILA and SONA Line?

Along with a different device design, the design on the mouth of the SILA is also completely different. The mouth is designed bigger and wider for extra comfort. This design also changes the feel of the sonic waves the SILA produces.

The SILA also has a wider range of vibration intensities to choose from so you can manipulate the strength of the device in more detail. Along with that, it has 8 different vibration patterns to choose from.

The colors in which the Sona, Sona 2, and the SILA come are also all different.

For the sensation, I would say that Sona 2 Cruise is more intense than the SILA or Sona 2, especially due to its Cruise feature.

*Sona 2 Cruise includes all the features from Sona 2, with the addition of the awesome Cruise Control feature.

Many toys on the market experienced a decline in intensity when they are being pressed against your body.

This is where the Cruise feature comes into play and what makes this item so special.

When it’s pressed hard against your body it won’t drop its power, which will keep the intensity consistent automatically.

If you are someone who does not typically require a lot of pressure when using toys, the Sona or SILA may be perfectly ideal for you.

However, if you are very familiar with this issue of more pressure equating less intensity, then the Sona Cruise would be much more up your alley.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for this toy. I like reading your reviews; they are very helpful.

Are you able to use the Sila comfortably with a partner? Or is this toy strictly for solo use?

Jane Louis October 29, 2020 - 6:44 pm

Hello, thank you for your positive feedback! It’s really great to know that my review helps :).
I think SILA is mainly for solo use. But it can be an interesting toy for foreplay (e.g. nipple suction) during couple sex.

Madie February 5, 2021 - 12:45 pm

Thanks for this review !
You said that this stimulator is less agressive than other Lelo clit toys. Is it comparable as a womanizer ? Or a little bit softer/ more intense ?
Because I am really sensitive so I am used to not buy Lelo products

Jane Louis February 9, 2021 - 7:37 am

Hello Madie,
Despite both being clit suction toys, the technology for Lelo is somewhat different from the Womanizer ones. It’s really not an apple to apple comparison.
Personally, I really like SILA and don’t think it’s aggressive at all (Note that I do like strong clit stimulation). The mouth is very soft!
As for Womanizer, I think it depends on the models. For models like Liberty and Starlet 2, they are very gentle because they only have 4 or 6 levels of intensity. But models like Premium can be very intense because it has 12 levels of intensity. Of course, you don’t have to go all the way to the 12th level, but it’s just nice to have the option there. (You can check my comparison article to get more details)
Sila has 8 levels of intensity and I think the highest level can be as intense as the Premium. With that being that, it means the power gap between each level is slightly bigger.
Hope this extra information can help you decide better 🙂

Thank You for sharing your review! I am new to suction toys and have been wanting to make a purchase for quite some time now. I was wondering is the Sila more suction or vibrations? I am not sure what would be best first because everyone has said they are so different.

Jane Louis February 9, 2021 - 7:46 am

Hello Shannon,
The first one is always very special and very fun to explore :)!
SILA doesn’t vibrate. It’s suction only. It feels like the whole clit is being wrapped and stimulation comes from everywhere. Quite intense, I must admit.
And you are right! The sensation is very very different from vibration.

Great review, and I found your YouTube video comparison first which did a great job of showing the differences.

My wife has the original Lelo Sona and really loves it and uses it often. What she loves about it, is the fact that she can be done in less than 60 seconds if she wants, or can keep going until the battery runs out if she can avoid muscle cramps from all the orgasmic contractions. HA! NOTE: Using in the bathtub helps muffle the sounds a bit too… well the Sona sounds, hers not so much. HA!
