Ohio University is hosting a real-life dramatic presentation event called "Seduce Me" that asks the question, "What are you giving your power and control over to?"
The presentation will address issues like pornography, father abandonment, divorce, depression and anxiety.
Founder and Executive Director of BraveHearts Michael Leahy and his wife Christine will alternate telling their stories.
"Well, they're going to hear brutal honesty for one thing. They're going to hear our personal stories that we tell in parallel. And then they'll see how we were really following those things that seduced us, and they're very different for a man than a woman, and the bonus is that they'll hear about how our stories came together and how we ended up in a relationship with each other," says Leahy.
Leahy says he sharing his own past addiction to pornography in hopes that others will identify with his story.
"That was the thing that seduced me. Basically it was the picture that what pornography painted for me as what it meant to be a real man and what it meant to be a real woman," says Leahy.
Seduce Me also features a time for people to ask their own questions.
The event is free and open to all students and public.
The event will be held Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Baker Center Ballroom on OU's campus.
