Harriet Sugarcookie is the nerdy girl from high school who hung out with the boys playing video games. You never saw her as more of a friend, but then things changed when everyone went to college.
She’s still the same nerdy girl as before, but now she plays with herself on camera.
Not to mention, she reportedly makes more than a doctor’s salary doing so.
We had the pleasure of meeting Harriet this last AVN, unfortunately our schedules didn’t meet up and we didn’t have a chance to get to know her better. However we finally had a chance to catch up with her. She wowed us by not only being that gorgeous girl next door, but also being the nerdy freaky girl that we all wish we had.
What did you do before you got into the industry?
I was working 3 different jobs, trying to save enough money to get to London.
Were you the atypical quiet asian girl?
I guess so. I never really thought about it. I didn’t really have many friends at school, and I spent all my time in the library. I guess that’s kind of stereotypical. But I wasn’t good at maths or anything like that, I only got a B!
Were you always a sexual person?
Yes. I think I was. I mean, it’s hard to explain. I wasn’t very popular at school, so it’s not like I went around having lots of sex or doing sexy things. But I was always interested in sex. Obviously I’d watched porn, I’m actually pretty into Hentai.
What was the moment in your life you realized that hey, I kinda like this?
It was after I started getting attention from people on Reddit. That’s how everything started. My housemate posted a picture of me on /r/nextdoorasians and that was the first real experience I had with being sexy on the internet. Or sexy at all to be honest. It was nice getting attention and compliments that up until that point I wasn’t used to at all.
Here in the US, suitors would be banging at your door all day, was it the same for you in the UK?
Not at all. Like I said, I was really unpopular. My hair was really short, I was quite a bit chubbier, I had these thick glasses and I dressed like a boy. I don’t think anyone looked at me and thought “She’s going to be a future pornstar!” They probably thought something along the lines of “Is that a boy or a girl? They probably live in their parent’s basement!” It’s really only since I’ve been getting into camming and porn that I’ve really paid attention to my looks. Now I’m so busy I’m never in one place long enough for anyone to knock on my door!
How did you get into camming?
It was about 6 months after I started to regularly post on Reddit. I was spending so much time just replying to people on photos, it was easier to go on cam and talk to them directly. It was also a lot of fun. When I first came to London I didn’t know anyone so it was nice going onto cam and having people to talk to. I made really good friends with a lot of them. It stopped me being lonely.
What led you to more adult stuff?
Part of me was always a little interested, so when people I talked to on Reddit, and later on camming, suggested i make a sextape to sell, I thought why not? A lot of camgirls just sell their videos through camming, but being the geek I am I decide to go all the way and make my own porn website.
We noticed that you have a ton of solo work and Girl on Girl, do you prefer that more than working with male counter-parts?
When I started, I did it with my male friend. I didn’t feel like a pornstar, just a normal girl making a sextape. So when I make videos, it’s mostly doing things i want to do. Rather than hiring male pornstars. I just do it with people I want to, and at the moment that’s mostly other girls.
How’s the adult industry been so far?
It’s interesting. In some ways I don’t feel like I’m really part of the adult industry. I’m independent and I don’t work with other studios, so a lot of the time I feel a bit out the loop. But then things will happen, like I’ll be nominated for an award, and that kind of blows my mind. I go to the awards, or the conventions, and people recognize me and i’m like “Whaaat?” I never thought people would recognize me. Everyone I’ve met so far have been lovely. They’re super friendly, and because they work in the adult industry, I find them much more open and honest. There’s also zero judgement which I think is brilliant.
We constantly see your stuff on reddit, posted by American users, how does it feel that you’re getting famous across the pond? In fact Hugh, one of our contributors, saw you on r/nextdoorasians.
Well reddit is where it all started for me. I would never have gone into the adult industry if my friend hadn’t posted that first photo of me on /r/nextdoorasians. So I don’t feel weird about things popping up on Reddit, I kind of see it as my starting ground. It actually makes me really happy that people on Reddit still like me, because I went professional and you know it’s nice to get that support from the same people that were there at the start.
We heard that you won awards over in Europe tell us more about it?
It’s the UKAP awards. It stands for UK adult Producers. So it’s pretty special because you get nominated and picked by others in the industry. Other producers who are in the same category as you. It’s feels really nice to get recognition from the industry for all the hard work I’ve put in. I didn’t think I was going to win. It still feels about surreal, that I’ve somehow got from the unpopular geek girl to an award winning pornstar.
What’s the craziest thing that’s happened so far with your time in?
I don’t know about anything crazy. I guess it would be my current housemate. He was actually a boyfriend of a porn star I worked with, and then he broke up with her a couple of months ago and has moved in with me and my other housemate. It’s crazy because we met him through a porn shoot and you know, it’s funny how things work out.
What’s the craziest thing that a fan has done for you?
Nothing too crazy again. I guess it would be this one guy at the AVNs last year. He was so sweet. He came to the AVNs and he had a bag of goodies for me. Like brownie brittle which I’d never had before. And I was moving around a lot at the AVNs trying to get interviews with porn stars, and he was trying to find me to give me the bag. It really touched me, that someone would put so much effort into doing something sweet like that for me. I was in such a rush I never got to really thank him properly. I gave him a hug. But I wish I could have told him that it was one of the sweetest things anyone has ever done for me.
Are you ever planning on coming to work in the US?
I’d love to work in the US. So many of my favorite porn stars are there. My porn star idols. I’m still working independently though, so when I manage to get there is the problem.
So what are you plans for the near future?
I want to keep working on the site. I want to build and grow and make it even better than it is now. I’m always trying to think of new things to do. How I can incorporate my life and interests. Like, I want to add a section for comics because I really love comics. I want to expand more on the food section. There’s really so many things I couldn’t list them all. And I’m always coming up with new things. I just want to see if I can make it the best porn site ever.
So we know you’re into nerd culture, what have you been into recently?
I’ve been totally hooked on Westworld. I also follow The Flash. Oh and I saw Dr Strange recently which was fantastic. Otherwise I read a lot of webcomics, like Noblesse and Tower of God. I follow comics as well. I got a playstation last year for my birthday so I’m really getting into more video games again. I just got the rerelease of Skyrim so I’m sure that’s going to take up some time. I play Destiny, and I’m also toying with the idea of getting Overwatch since everyone is so into it.
Anime vs Comics, which do you prefer more?
I read a lot more manga than I do comics. I mean I read both a lot. But I’ll tend to buy manga more. Because they come in nice book form. Waiting for trade backs on comics can take a long time. I also like the variety in manga a lot more. I don’t really watch any anime though, I’m more likely to watch a comic book adaptation in movie form or TV form, rather than watch and anime.
If there’s any fandom universe you have a chance to live in, what would it be?
This is a fantastic question and I’ve been thinking about it forever. I honestly don’t know. I guess it depends if I got powers or magic or anything. Like it’d be great to live in the Marvel universe, with powers. I’d join the X-men then. I want to be a teleporter, like Nightcrawler. Or the same sort of powers as Hiro from Heroes. But if you didn’t have powers, it would suck to be in that universe because you’d be normal, except there’s lots of villains and battles going on all the time that you couldn’t do anything about.
If i had to be in a universe without any powers, I guess I would pick the Lord of the Rings. I’ll be a hobbit, and spend all my time eating second breakfast and sleeping. Plus my house would be a hole in the hill and that sounds pretty cute.
Do you game a lot?
I have a 3DS which I play when I’m traveling or commuting on the bus and train. At home I have a PS4 and i’m getting into lots of games on that. I was playing Hearthstone for a long time on my computer, but it was too addicting so I stopped. I also play a ton of games on my mobile because it’s so easy.
Console or PC?
Console. My PC is filled with work stuff.
Any words to our readers?
I guess I just want to say thank you. Thank you to everyone that’s ever supported me, either on Reddit, or camming or through my website. I honestly can’t believe where I am, and i know I wouldn’t have got here without their support. It still kind of blows my mind to be honest.
