Now, thanks to Facebook, I get a lot of people contacting me calling me “Louise”. Which is fine except I forget that’s supposed to be my name, I don’t answer to it very well. I think I understand why people in porn opt for their first names with a false surname, so much easier.
Also, I’m due to be a Filmmaker in Focus at the Berlin Porn Film Festival in October and their website is referring to me as Louise Lush. Who knew it would be so hard to escape a fake name?
The stupid thing is that “Louise Lush” is no more “real” than “Ms. Naughty”. They’re both just names I made up. But one is easily identifiable as a pseudonym according to various algorithms and to people who think they have a right to say what’s a “real name” and what isn’t.
