Suck, The First European Sex Paper (1969 - 1974) was a Dutch countercultural publication founded in Amsterdam in the summer of 1969 by William Levy, Heathcote Williams, Germaine Greer, Willem de Ridder, Susan Janssen and Lynne Tillman. Suck also co-organized the Wet Dream Film Festivals .

Earl Kemp notes:

And, it was through Jim that I met Bill Levy and his lovely partner Susan Janssen, a.k.a. Purple Susan. The three of them, plus Willem de Ridder, produced a charming little newspaper named Suck, The First European Sex Paper. I was an enthusiastic subscriber for the entire run of their publication.
