Review: Sola Cue

If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you know that I'm not a huge fan of insertable toys, I love rumbling vibrations, and I'm picky about buttons. When SheVibe offered me the chance to review the Sola Cue, I was hesitant but excited. I had heard great things about the company but had my doubts about some of their claims.

When the toy first came to me I marveled at the box. I have the Wellness Eggs in my queue to review and they came in the same box - but I didn't expect the luxury to be reflected across their entire line. The box is great for storage, but it does come with a bag if you prefer a more compact option. The Sola Cue also comes with a charger, charging block, and the usual booklets.

The Sola Cue is a beautiful, powder blue, g-spot toy that hits all the right spots perfectly for me! I
love using it for clitoral stimulation during intercourse and actually don't mind using it for it's intended purpose. One of the few toys that I have found that can get me off with only internal stimulation.

I credit its ability to get me off to its deep, strong vibrations. The vibrations aren't buzzy and don't feel biting against my clit. They also carry well through my entire pubic bone and don't dissipate too badly when I apply pressure.

It is also waterproof, rechargeable, and made of body safe silicone. The silicone is fine to use without lubricant externally, but I have found that it is almost uncomfortable to insert dry.

One of my favorite features is that it includes 5 speeds and 5 patterns. I'm not a fan of patterns, so I stick with the speeds. But I do enjoy that I have 5 options to cycle through while I near orgasm and ramp up the speed!

Despite loving the Sola Cue and raving about everything I love, it is not without flaw. There is a soft portion of silicone around the middle of the toy that allows it to bend when enough pressure is applied. This irritates me as I need firm pressure on my g-spot and clit and getting that with this toy requires some maneuvering.

The button placement is also bothersome. The buttons are exactly where my hand rests or grips when I am using the toy. They are easy to press and I often change the setting in the middle of playing, or worse, getting off!

Sadly, that's not where I stop complaining. The Sola Cue gets hot during use, the charging port is finicky, and your hand will go numb if you use it for extended periods of time. Personally, I enjoy the warmth from the toy when it heats up, but I feel like this may be an issue with the motor. The charging port is a pain in the ass. I have found that it needs to be set on a flat surface and not bumped, moved, or breathed on. And the hand numbing thing is a sort of pro and con. I find that the best vibrations for my clit make my hand go numb.

Despite its drawbacks, the Sola Cue has quickly become my go-to insertable toy. It has strong,
rumbly vibrations and is the perfect shape for my body. I love that it has 5 options for steady speeds and 5 patterns. I love that it's waterproof and has the qualities of a luxury toy, but is a fraction of the price.

Personally, I can look over the issues with the charging port, the fact that it heats up, and that it makes my hand go numb. The biggest thing I would suggest to make the Sola Cue perfect would be to move the buttons. I can't stand a toy that has bad button placement!
