>Suebob recently linked to a site that allows you to search your name and see how many other people have the same name. According to this erroneous site, I am the only Suzanne Reisman in the country. I know this to be untrue.

When I was in college, I had a horribly written and even worse edited (as if this is a good sentence) sex column in the NYU student newspaper. (I’ll be posting some of those articles over the next few weeks so we can mock my lame good intentions and attempts at “educating” people about sex when I clearly had no idea what the fuck I was talking about.) I also worked at the public interest law center at the law school.

One day when I went to pick up my paycheck, I discovered that I received a large raise. I was very excited until I looked more closely at the name on the check. My middle initial is not M, and yet there it was. There was another Suzanne Reisman.

It turns out that the other Suzanne Reisman is a British woman who was studying for her LLM. Of all the places to work, her office was located adjacent to the one I worked in. We never met until she asked my schedule and came in on her day off to meet the nutjob with her name who was writing naïve sex articles. She was very nice. When I stopped writing the column, she was probably relieved and thought that she would never have her name associated with such content again.

Then I began the Campaign for Unshaved Snatch (CUSS). After a few months, I revealed my name. Now a google search for “Suzanne Reisman” brings up many links to her, as well as a Suzanne Reisman in Minnesota and one who has the bad taste to belong to a sorority. To those innocent Suzanne Reismans, my apologies for dragging your good names into the sewer.
