My Favorite Pornstar: Tell us a bit about yourself?
Sonia Harcourt: I’m a theatre major/music minor living in NYC. Bounced around from retail jobs to dog walking to office administration before stumbling into porn. I’m awkward, kind, passionate and hard working.
My Favorite Pornstar: How did you create the name?
Sonia Harcourt: It’s a combination of two of my favorite theatre roles (both the vixens, coincidentally). Sonia is from Godspell (the Mary Magdalene character) and Harcourt is from Me and My Girl (Lady Jacqueline Harcourt)
*My Favorite Pornstar: What are your stats/measurements?
Sonia Harcourt: 36B (natural), 28, 34. I’m 5’6 and 135lbs
My Favorite Pornstar: What do you enjoy most about being a pornstar?
Sonia Harcourt: Being able to set my own hours, travel, meeting new people, and most of all, performing.
My Favorite Pornstar: Do you work any other jobs other than being a pornstar?
Sonia Harcourt: Luckily not at the moment- I am incredibly fortunate to have a husband who holds down the 9-5 fort
My Favorite Pornstar: Do you sponsor or support any charities if so why?
Sonia Harcourt: I’m not sure about officially sponsoring, but whenever I am asked about charities I support, my top choices are Road Dogs Rescue, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, Second Chance Rescue, and Beastly Rescue….I absolutely love animals and was a dog walker for 6 years. These charities rescue special needs dogs and/or dogs on death row.
My Favorite Pornstar: What makes you different from other adult performers?
Sonia Harcourt: I have a very different look, I’ve been told, something that sticks out a bit from current trends? I also offer a wide variety of content, from fetish to bisexual to trans to GG to cosplay.
My Favorite Pornstar: Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Sonia Harcourt: Still in this industry, in NYC, hopefully doing even bigger projects.
My Favorite Pornstar: What projects do you have set up for the next 6 months?
Sonia Harcourt: I can’t speak too much about the one I’m most excited about until the scenes drop, but it’s a new site showcasing something I am very passionate about. I will also be going to Aruba for a week in May for a sort of ‘mockumentary reality TV show’…it’s going to be me, my husband Erik Todd, Violet Monroe and Eddie Danger. I can’t wait!
My Favorite Pornstar: What is your favorite sexual position on & off camera & why?
Sonia Harcourt: It really depends on the shape/size of the dick…generally, my two favorites are doggie and missionary, but a good upward curve on a dick makes cowgirl pretty great.
My Favorite Pornstar: Which pornstar would you most like to work with?
Sonia Harcourt: Ugh there are so many…how to even narrow it down? Lena Paul is up there- we’ve been trying to shoot together for over a year, but she’s insanely busy. Rome Rain, Kleio Valentine, Abigail Mac, Kenzie Reeves have all been so incredibly kind to me and are drop dead beautiful. Really want to work with Natalie Mars and Chanel Santini as well. For guys I’d have to say Seth Gamble, Mike Mancini, Small Hands and Xander Corvus.
My Favorite Pornstar: Has another pornstar grossed you out during a shoot & how did you handle it?
Sonia Harcourt: Honestly I’m more ‘grossed out’ by people being rude/arrogant/selfish as opposed to physical stuff, if that’s what you’re asking. I’ve only had one performer really rub me the wrong way so far, and it was for a trade shoot, so I just cancelled it.
My Favorite Pornstar: Are there any sex acts that you haven’t shot yet but want to?
Sonia Harcourt: Yes! I really want to do a blowbang and my first DP.
My Favorite Pornstar: Are there any sex acts that are taboo for you and if so why?
Sonia Harcourt: Not necessarily taboo, but I’m just not that into anal…sorry guys.
My Favorite Pornstar: A day in the life of a pornstar – talk us through an average shoot day?
Sonia Harcourt: Well my day is probably pretty different than most in LA or Vegas. I travel every 4-6 weeks for shoots, but when I’m here in NYC, I’m either making my own content or writing video descriptions (which is far more time consuming than you’d think)
My Favorite Pornstar: What is the funniest thing that’s happened during a shoot?
Sonia Harcourt: It wasn’t a shoot but a live cam show…I was at another performers’ place, and one of her cats was not a fan of strangers…anytime we had to get up to pee, we had to grab a plastic bag and shake it in the cat’s face to get him to move from guarding the hall. The audience could hear some of the noise and were so confused.
My Favorite Pornstar: There is often a stigma around the adult industry, has this affected you and if it did how did you handle it?
Sonia Harcourt: Of course it’s affected me, I don’t know anyone who is in this industry and isn’t affected. Imagine going out for drinks with friends and meeting new people, but dreading the ‘so what do you do?’ question. Imagine being afraid your of bank/payment processors finding out what you do (even when it’s completely legal), shutting down your accounts/taking your money. Imagine being uninvited from holidays by your family when they find out…it permeates every single aspect of your life. It’s hard, but for the first time in my life I feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be- I love my job. How many people can honestly say that? So, yes, there are lots of sacrifices, but for me personally, it’s worth it. You find out who really loves you for who you are.”
My Favorite Pornstar: What is the weirdest thing that you’ve been asked to do during a shoot?
Sonia Harcourt: Again wasn’t during a shoot, but a live cam show, and a guy privately messaged me saying he’d pay me $300 to record myself taking a shit right then…I mean, I don’t kink shame anyone, but I had already gone before the show started…”
My Favorite Pornstar: Is sex with you off camera different to what you see on film & why?
Sonia Harcourt: Absolutely- the only person I have off camera sex with is my husband. Everything else is just for work, no fucking just for the sake of fucking. Even if it’s quick and for a fan page, it has to be content. My husband and I shoot together all the time, but we have most of our private sex just between us…every couple is different, and honestly I envy the couples making bank because they set up a camera every time they go at it, but my husband and I are just not there yet I guess. We crave the privacy and intimacy of just the two of us, not having to worry about angles, opening out to camera, putting on a full face of makeup, etc”
My Favorite Pornstar: Where is the most exotic location that you’ve filmed a shoot?
Sonia Harcourt: Well soon it’s going to be Aruba! But so far I guess the Red Rock dessert area in Vegas?
My Favorite Pornstar: Do you get recognised when you’re out & how do your fans react?
Sonia Harcourt: Not yet, maybe someday.
My Favorite Pornstar: What is the most difficult thing about being a pornstar?
Sonia Harcourt: Being a female pornstar, it’s the stigma. People assume you’re just brainwashed, stupid or lazy, and therefore all of your opinions are immediately invalidated. You can’t have any kind of adult conversation with most people because they immediately go to ‘what do you know? You suck dick for a living’…it’s hilarious to me though that these people are completely unaware of how ignorant they sound. It is not easy to make a living selling a product most people think should be free…
My Favorite Pornstar: If you weren’t shooting adult videos what would you be doing?
Sonia Harcourt: Probably still working on my Easy store and/or dog walking. I love making things, working with my hands; it’s one of the reasons I love cosplay so much.
My Favorite Pornstar: What advice would you give to someone wanting to get into the industry?
Sonia Harcourt: Make your own content- don’t worry about getting an agent or doing things you don’t want to do. You have an audience out there, just find them. Make a bunch of solo videos, start up some clip sites so you look legit when approaching other talent, and be ready to HUSTLE.
My Favorite Pornstar: How do you keep in shape? Are there any specific exercises or routines that you complete?
Sonia Harcourt: I had my first taste of seasonal depression this year, so I’ve gotten a little soft, but ab exercise DVD’s are my favorite, along with yoga and dancing.
My Favorite Pornstar: What hobbies & interests do you have outside of the adult industry?
Sonia Harcourt: Cosplay, movies, home decor/home improvement, singing, playing the flute.
My Favorite Pornstar: Do you use sex toys? If so which ones?
Sonia Harcourt: My ultimate go to is my Womanizer- I’ve gotten so spoiled, I rarely ever use anything else to masturbate.
My Favorite Pornstar: To date which porn scene are you most proud of & why?
Sonia Harcourt: Ooooh that’s a good one. I think it would have to be my little vignette series with Sevareid Cinemas, ‘Covert Attraction’. It’s a there part vignette with me, Shiri Allwood and Rob Yaeger (though Yaeger and I do not have sex in the series yet)…first of all, it’s beautiful- the director has the most amazing vision and is so passionate about his work; I see big things from him in the future. Also, I absolutely adore Shiri and we have such amazing chemistry…you definitely need to check that one out.
My Favorite Pornstar: Do you watch porn? If so what type?
Sonia Harcourt: Of course! I have kind of a thing for big clits, so I enjoy FTM trans porn, and I also love hearing men moan and groan, so gay porn is another favorite.
My Favorite Pornstar: If you were interviewing a pornstar what would you ask them? & answer this question
Sonia Harcourt: Hmmm, I think I would ask what their ultimate passion project would be, if they haven’t shot it already. For me, that would be a production that really challenged my acting chops; something like Pure Taboo or a crazy parody.
My Favorite Pornstar: What really turns you on?
Sonia Harcourt: Getting my partner off…truly, I am a pleaser, and I get wet giving pleasure, especially oral.
My Favorite Pornstar: Which other adult performers have you worked with?
Sonia Harcourt: I have been fortunate to work with so many incredible performers thanks to clip sites and independent content! Some of my favorites are Jay Taylor, Nathan Bronson, Quinton James, Marcus London, Tommy Pistol, Jessie Lee, Emilia Song, Chrissy LeBlanc, Rob Yaeger, Shiri Allwood, John Long…I could go on for days honestly.
My Favorite Pornstar: Thanks for answering all of our questions, who would you like to nominate to answer these questions?
Sonia Harcourt: Emilia Song would have some amazing answers for you!
