Calculating the cost of porn lecture on campus

Univ. of Wisconsin - La CrosseAn advocate for family values in Wisconsin argues that a university wasted money and needlessly subjected students to perversity by bringing an aging porn star to school to lecture students.

Campus Reform reports the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse paid 59-year-old porn star Nina Hartley $5,000 to talk to students about liking and being comfortable in their sexuality. The 90-minute lecture, offered roughly two weeks ago, was entitled: "Fantasy vs. Reality: A critical view of adult media."

Julaine Appling of the Wisconsin Family Council believes the appearance should never have happened. "This is an egregious abuse, if you will, of a university system's ability to bring in special speakers," she tells OneNewsNow. "These kids do not need to know about pornography, and they do not need to meet a porn star."

Appling

Chancellor Joe Gow told the La Crosse Tribune the $5,000 was money well spent – and the Journal Sentinel it was "a real value ... and a rare perspective we don't hear every day." Parent of UW students, says Appling, need to pay attention.

"I wish parents who think that sending their kids to these kinds of schools in the UW system that it was just fine, that nothing bad will happen – I wish they knew about these kinds of things to see there's a huge risk involved with this," she laments.

The school's promotion of the lecture was very low key, and the lecture itself reportedly drew about 70 students.
