CAMBRIDGE — The Cambridge University Society will host a debate with British porn star Johnny Anglais, the country’s first female adult movie director, Anna Span and former porn star, author and founder of the anti-porn Pink Cross Foundation, Shelley Lubben.

Also on the bill will be Dr. Richard Woolfson, a child psychologist. The panel will debate the motion “This house believes that pornography does a good public service.”

Union president Lauren Davidson said the announcement of the debate in the university student newspaper, The Tab, has received a lot of positive feedback.

“We always offer a traditional line-up of foreign policy and political debates, but we wanted to look at the issues that affect today’s society,” she said.

Davidson said she’s not concerned about any criticism that might be levied at the debate.

She added, “We wanted the debates to be interesting and exciting. There’s always going to be comments from the people who would be negative whatever you put in front of them but the responses we have had so far have been very positive."

A writer for The Tab newspaper, Joshi Eichner Herrmann said, “I think the union should be applauded for taking on an issue like pornography. It’s easy to have debates about justice and politics but it takes a bit of courage to raise a controversial subject like this. That is what the union is there to do.”

Lubben has recently received media attention as a born-again Christian and for her anti-porn industry book, "Truth Behind the Fantasy of Porn: The Greatest Illusion on Earth."
