Anti-porn speaker visiting UW-La Crosse: Lecture comes after porn star's controversial November booking

A guest lecturer will argue that pornography corrupts the brain and erodes relationships during an appearance at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse on Thursday.

Parker Hymas, communications manager for Fight the New Drug, an anti-porn organization out of Salt Lake City, will speak at 8 p.m. in the Bluffs Room of the Student Union.

Leaders from Cru, a Christ-based student group, said they have tried for years to book a speaker from Fight the New Drug, redoubling their efforts after a porn star’s controversial lecture at UW-L during the fall semester.

“We wanted our community on campus to just hear the facts about pornography and the true effects of it. A lot of people look at it for pleasure, and they’re not aware of what’s occurring in our brains,” said Cru President Hannah Bontrager, a junior psychology major at UW-L.
