Interview with Harriet SugarCookie pt 3 (NSFW)










Baldwin A Saintilus: Getting a little bit serious now. Recently, the UK has passed laws about what's allowed in the adult industry. What’s your opinion on this whole situation?

Harriet SugarCookie: The UK has been changing its legislation to censor porn for a long time now. The latest legislation is actually an amendment to something they did in 2003. So the difference with this one is that, it has had such interest on the Internet. It's a lot more publicized, when compared to a lot of other things they do, it's a lot more low-brow and people don't notice it. For me, it makes things a little bit more difficult, but not too much because I haven't done a face-sitting video, I haven't done a fisting video, I haven't done strangulation, I haven't done water sports, and there are things that I possibly wouldn't have considered doing anyway. So the restrictions are a lot worse for people in the fetish industry, and the BDSM community, and it also really hits the small independent companies bad. But the problem for me with them is that they are censoring our media, and under no circumstances is that okay. Like some people somewhere, one day decided what was morally right for us sexually, and they wrote down in a law saying, "We can do this, and we can't do that," and they're judging us for it. They're choosing for us without any questions, like they didn't ask the public. So a lot of the time, they will make sure that the things they pass are in favor of the public because that's how you vote for your party, that's how you vote for the government. You pick people based on what their policies are, but no one talks about porn, because people are worried about it. People go, "Oh," they're too embarrassed to talk about it. That's how they're able to pass these laws, that is how they're able to censor the Internet. It starts off with porn because no one wants to talk about it and they'll move on to something else, and before you know it, they'll have crazy censorship on everything, right?

BAS: Agreed.

HSC: It's just another step in a very long dink and this is another thing I have to consider, because if I want to continue doing what I do, I'm going to have to move everything. I mean, obviously I don't have a citizenship in other places, I can only live in England but my business cannot so I'm going to have to come with a way of doing it differently. So if I did end up working with studios in America, I could probably get a working visa in America, right? And I can just move everything to there. But it's a very big question, do I want to sacrifice what I do right now and work with the studios, and change how I do sex just to keep my own thing afloat? It's a very serious issue for me. And I don't want to; I want to see what happens later on, 'cause they haven't finished their laws on porn yet. This isn't like a standalone thing. Next year, they will be enforcing a law that means you have to verify everyone that comes to your website as over 18.

BAS: It can be a challenge.

HSC: I mean yes you have to verify that someone is 18 before they can do this. You think, "Well that makes sense," 'cause you don't want little kids watching. So although it sounds fine on paper, what they're really doing is just getting rid of porn, full stop. Its message they are sending out saying porn is wrong and porn is bad and you shouldn't do it. With these bans it is saying spanking is wrong, caning is wrong, face-sitting is wrong. And I don't think that's fair because it isn't. If people like it, if they are consensual adults, then they should be allowed to do it. And they shouldn't have to think that there are guys in parliament that are looking down on them for it. And it's just so hypocritical because in 2013 alone there were 300,000 attempts to look at porn from inside the Houses of Parliament. It's just really stupid!

BAS: From what I've been reading, it feels like its targeting women. Because face-sitting is just your partner on top of you, making it easier.

HSC: There are certainly more things that target women, but equally, fisting is very well known in the gay communities. So I think a lot of publications have picked up on the feminine side of it. Like the female ejaculation is now banned. Why is the female ejaculation banned when the male ejaculation isn't? That makes no sense to me. Why is the male orgasm morally acceptable and the female orgasm not? That makes no sense. I feel like they are picking on the weak, women, and on the gay community. And if it was a topic that people weren't embarrassed to talk about, they would have no chance of passing these things, would they? But the fact is people don't want to go onto the street, and they don't want to protest for porn. They don't want to go out and have signs saying, "I want my face-sitting" because it would be seen as embarrassing. And I think it's a very underhanded tactic for them to target these groups in such a way.

BAS: It's like someone messed up and now they're trying to save face. And I'm just like, "How bad did you mess up in order to have to pass these laws?" What did you do that was so bad?

HSC: And that's the thing with politics in general. This is going to get really philosophical. But with politics, when things happen like this, and everyone's paying attention, you just have to think, "What is this a diversion for?" Everyone's getting worked up about it and it's so stupid you're just thinking, "What did you do wrong that you have to bring out something stupid to make everyone look the other way?"

BAS: Exactly. Even in Hollywood movies if they show a female having an orgasm, the movie automatically goes from PG-13 to Rated R.

HSC: But that's the thing. If it's banned, if spanking and caning, if humiliation, if calling names, is banned, what are they going to do when "50 Shades of Grey" comes out? Are they going to ban that from the cinemas? They won't though because it's a movie that's going to bring them in a lot of money, through the cinema. They're okay with taking the money from taxes, they're happy with it being from porn. So it's extremely hypocritical.

BAS: When it comes to porn and movies, it will always be hypocritical. In California while the porn industry does bring in great revenue, politicians will still try to censor it.

HSC: Right. But it's the fact that they are deciding for people. What if they said anal was banned? What if they decided that anal was morally wrong? There's no difference from them banning that to the things they have banned already. They've decided that these things are dangerous. They've said that face-sitting could be life threatening, and I feel like they're really grasping at straws.

BAS: They are, 'cause that in itself is just...

HSC: Ignorant! It's an interesting topic and I think it's important that people do talk about it because the worst thing that could happen is that people don't talk about it, and then they're able to pass these laws and these censorships without any retaliation, and it escalates.

BAS: Exactly! 
Another thing has come up, I don't know if it's coming up on your side of things, but a few comic book artists have been I guess, expressing outrage that cosplay has hurt financially and in terms of taking away the spotlight. Complaining that cosplayers are blocking tables, fans are not buying from them. What are your thoughts on this?

HSC: I think again, they are exaggerating. The increase in cosplay at conventions is growing and I have to admit that the people that do cosplay sometimes they get a little bit hyperactive and loud, and walk around in large groups. But I don't think you can blame the popularity of cosplay to your fallen sales. Right? More people are going to Comic Cons and it's not that more of them are deciding to dress up and suddenly they stop paying. It doesn't work that way. If anything the cosplay brings in another group. The thing is although the comic convention has changed in the type of people that come, the people who are complaining haven't changed for their audience. It's about supply and demand.

When the cronut came out and everyone loved that; people selling donuts wouldn’t say, "Oh, no one's buying from me and it's all because of this thing." The thing is if you're stuff isn't selling; you have to change the way you do it. I'm not saying change your product, but change your attitude. Can you make your items more accessible? There's this girl I met at Thought Bubble many years ago. She's called Destiny Blue, she's an artist and when I first met her, she was doing commissions and she was very small time. Now she's huge, she has a really big booth at Thought Bubble and people actually cosplay as her original characters. So she was a really small independent person when I first met her. There are people cosplaying as her characters and they are buying her products. At the end of the day, if you have a product, if you have a character, if you have a story that is worth selling, it will be sold.

BAS: I agree. When I go to a convention, I don't go for just cosplays. I've met a lot of artists from buying prints and indy comics. But after a while, you start to look at your wall and your shelves and you're like, "Alright, maybe I'm going to cut down on what I'm buying”. And sometimes people only buy that one thing at a convention and the rest of the money is for food.

HSC: Right. And you can't say, "Well, let's stop selling food at conventions," can you?
You can't expect to just get a table at a comic convention and just by sitting there, think that you're going to have a ton of success. You have to draw people in, and you have to pique their interest.

BAS: Some artist have told me that you would think at a big convention they would have more sales, but they've gone to smaller lesser known conventions and they've made a killing. Basically no matter what it's always going to be different for everyone.

HSC: Now you're making up with excuses as to why you're failing. 
But I think it's important that there is a way for girls to get into comics and into more geeky things, because before I think it was very male-dominated. And I think it should be more accessible to women. And that's the thing, if more cosplayers are coming in, if more of them are women, then maybe you should be looking at, "How do I make my product more appealing to women?"

BAS: When I talk to some of my female friends about comic books, they say it doesn't have the same feel for them. Like they read a comic book and it's like it doesn't draw them in as much 'cause it's mainly like an '80s action movie that doesn't have any substance for them. And that is true for a lot of them, but it all depends on the story you're reading at the time. Sometimes it will be a deep story, sometimes it'll just be like an action movie. I also know a lot of female die-hard comic book fans who have the same sentiment.

HSC: Yeah.

BAS: Plus, on the other hand, you can look at cosplay that person is going to hype up your character and tell them who the artist is.

HSC: Yeah it is great publicity.






BAS: Are you into any sports at all?

HSC: I like volleyball and I used to play setter in a volleyball team. I haven't played in a while but I was the captain of the team. It just took up too much time. I have watched the world cup, but I don't think I'm really into sports. If there's ever a soccer game with England, I'm always supporting England.

BAS: Next year and the year after, we have a boatload of comic book related movies coming out. Which ones are you're looking forward to?

HSC: That's a tough one. To be honest, I was most looking forward to this year, I thought this year in comic book films was the best. I'm a die-hard X-Men fan, absolutely love X-Men, so when "Days of Future Past" came out, I was just like, I don't know why I was so happy. I didn't really read "Guardians of the Galaxy" before it came out as a film, but when it came out as a film, I thought it was amazing. And I think what's amazing about it is that it targets the mass audience and suddenly, there's a lot more people who are interested in comics or interested in what's happening and is making comics, overall, a lot more acceptable, like you're not the odd one out at school if you like it. I think everyone's very much excited about the Star Wars film that will come out in December. I was always more of a Star Trek fan, but Star Wars did look amazing. There's a lot of controversy about the black storm trooper, which I think is ridiculous. I don't think anyone really cares that he's black and a storm trooper. But that actor, I actually really like him as an actor. Did you see the film, "Attack the Block"?

BAS: No, I have not seen that one.

HSC: It's a British film, I think it might be on Netflix, but it's about a council estate so flats where it's like poor people mostly, not like, ugh, that sounds horrible when I say it like that, but you know like government housing that are just like Apartment blocks. But what happens is, there's just a group of these council estate kids, and there's an alien invasion that come down on that council estate and the kids are trying to basically fight the aliens. John Boyega who is that storm trooper is the main character in that film, and he gives an amazing performance. He's a really good actor and if he has a big role in Star Wars VII, I would be really happy 'cause I really want to see him in other stuff. And then obviously, Avengers, which was the huge deal, like there's going to be "Age of Ultron." I'm really excited to see how Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are going to be played, 'cause obviously, Quicksilver was in the latest X-Men movie. I like that because of the way the rights were done, they could have the characters in both different production companies, so I think it'd be very interesting to see how both sides do it. But I also, I think the Avengers have great chemistry, so I am excited to watch that. There's just a lot going on, but I generally don't get really excited for a movie until it's newly out, 'cause otherwise I'll just be waiting for a long time, so I generally try to forget about them until they're nearly out.

BAS: Sounds like a good idea. Do you have a favorite "toy"?

HSC: [chuckle] I guess at the moment my favorite toy was the Tenga Sakura vibrator, it was pink and small, it was a clitoral stimulator. But when I moved house, I lost it; I have no idea where it is. So I'm going to have to buy another one of those 'cause it was my favorite. So at the moment, I'm using a LELO Wand, which is purple. So a lot of people have been telling me, "Get the Hitachi! Get the Hitachi!" But I don't think I can handle one, I think I'll probably die. [chuckle] I think when it comes down to masturbating, I do prefer things that focus on the clitoris rather than penetration, 'cause for me, nothing's gonna be the same feeling as an actual penis. [chuckle]

BAS: What are your favorite sexual acts and positions?

HSC: This is a tough one. I'm going to be really blunt. I'm going to say I really like missionary because it's good. It's a good position to be in. It works. You see all these crazy things that Cosmopolitan tells you, like, "Do the screwdriver. Do this and do that." I'm like, "Man, keep it simple." That's why missionary is just great. You get real depth with missionary. But I also like it from behind, so doggy. Man, these are the most, these are the basic positions, but they're my favorite.

BAS: There's nothing wrong with the basics.

HSC: I like the doggy 'cause you can do it on different surfaces. You don't even have to be on the bed. You can be up against a table. You can be in the shower. So for me, I definitely like doing it in different locations. I think for me, that's a pretty big one.
I really do like giving blowjobs. I can't deep throat or anything yet. I feel like I need to have more practice but I actually do enjoy giving them.

BAS: Very nice. Have you ever had a threesome or been involved in an orgy before?

HSC: I have had a threesome with a girl and a guy. In fact you can read on the blog but that's the only one I've ever had. And it was fun because I really like the people. They're good friends of mine and I've known them for a while. But at the same time I don't think it's something I will do that often because my mind just exploded. I was just like, "What do I touch? Who do I touch? What do I do here?" It was a little bit overwhelming. When its sex, I feel a lot of it should just not involve having to think, you just do. But when there are two people to pay attention to, you have to think a little bit more with coordination and everything.

And as for orgies, I don't plan on doing anything like that. A lot of people ask me if I'm ever going to do gangbang videos or do bukake. I have no plans for those because they're just not something that I've ever had an interest in. And again, I think it's because for me sex is all about the connection and the intimacy and I think that when you have an orgy it isn't there. Can you have a connection with like four, five other people at the same time like that? So that's probably why I won't do it. But I'm certainly not against other people doing it. I won't lie. I watch gangbang videos all the time.

BAS: And last question. What are your plans for Christmas and the New Year?

HSC: I have a sister who lives with her father and they're basically a two-unit family. And I try to spend as much time with her as I can. So for Christmas, I'll just be with them. It's not glamorous. I'm not going to any big parties. I'm just going to spend some real quality time with my little sister who I absolutely adore. And I guess on New Year's, we'll watch the fireworks and then go to bed. [chuckle] It's not exciting, is it?

BAS: It's Christmas, it's the holidays. You can make it whatever you want it to be.

HSC: But on Christmas day, I actually have a Skype planned with one of my fans but actually a friend. He's been coming into my cam-room a lot for a long time. I heard that he wasn't seeing family this year. I think he's either busy or he can't visit them or something so he's actually going to be left in a different situation. So I wanted to be there for him. So on Christmas day, I'm actually going to be Skyping with him for a little bit as well 'cause I think everyone should have people on Christmas.

BAS: That's very sweet of you. Thank you very much for your time. It was a great talk and a great interview.

HSC: Thanks, yay! I'm gonna go get some food now. I'm really hungry. [chuckle]
