Porn Nation Coming to SWOSU February 27
February 13, 2008
The multi-media presentation Porn Nation-The Naked Truth revealing the impact of pornography will be staged at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford on Wednesday, February 27.
This fast-paced 90-minute multi-media and live speaker presentation incorporates music, movies, advertising and personal stories into a gripping and controversial conversation on the impact of pornography on campuses. It will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center. Admission is free.
This presentation is being sponsored by 13 organizations on campus including Campus Crusade for Christ, University Media Association, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Chi Alpha, Love is an Action, Baptist Collegiate Ministries, College Republicans, Latter Day Saints Student Association, Collegiate Activities Board, Church of Christ Student Center, United Methodist Wesley Student Center, SWOSU Residence Life and Black Student Association.
For more than just an expose’ of the sex industry, Porn Nation integrates the intimate story of a recovering sex addict, Michael Leahy, with deep insight into the United States’ sex-saturated society. Leahy has been the focus of recent reports on ABC’s 20/20 and The View on the impact Internet pornography is having on marriages, careers and lives.
“Porn is now the norm in our culture,” Leahy said, “and no one understands that better than today’s college students. From the rapid rise of cyber porn addiction among male and female college students, to its role in influencing the high incidence of rapes and prevalence of eating disorders among college co-eds, the growing influence of porn in the midst of an already sexually charged campus culture is taking a very real toll on students’ lives.”
