LONDON — British-Asian adult film and webcam performer Harriet Sugarcookie is openly tackling the topic of rough sex on her lifestyle blog HarrietSugarcookie.com.
A spokesperson for the London-based Sugarcookie said that “Newbies Guide to Rough Sex,” her most recent post, “shines a spotlight on a once-taboo activity that's since nestled comfortably into mainstream pop culture. She thoughtfully addresses the possible pitfalls of extreme intimacy, from choking, hair pulling, bondage and spanking to scratching, biting and roleplay.”
Sugarcookie conducted a survey to compare online users' personal tastes with her own.
"With porn's popularity and the ‘50 Shades’ explosion,” Sugarcookie wrote in her blog, “it seems like rough sex is now vanilla. I surveyed porn users to find out just how popular it is and what their experiences are."
Results from the survey, which Sugarcookie has presented in an infographic, show that 55 percent of users discovered rough sex through watching porn and 35 percent from a partner. But 28 percent don't know where to start, while 12 percent fear discussing it with their partner at all.
Sugarcookie said, “All good sexual relationships, of course, boil down to communication. It’s important to also stay in control and be completely aware of you and your partner’s comfort levels."
A spokesperson for Sugarcookie said that she “mixes her personal blog musings with some advice columns, celebrity gossip, revealing articles, favorite recipes and XXX sex scenes together for an engaging mix of personalized, stimulating entertainment straight from Sugarcookie herself.”
