(BLOOMINGTON, IN) -- Adult film producer/performer Dave Pounder has been admitted to the Ph.D. program in Telecommunications at Indiana University to study the social and psychological impacts of mediated sex and sexuality. "This is a tremendous opportunity to use empirical research methods to finally understand how people respond to sexual imagery in media and their effects on family relations, sexual perceptions, crime rates, and other related psychological and sociological factors," said Pounder.
In his decision to retire from performing, Pounder hinted toward the importance of relationships and intimacy in leading a full life. "You can mess around and have fun in your 20s, but show me one person involved in production of adult content that has a secure, healthy, intimate relationship," said Pounder. "If you remain in production beyond a certain age, you are pretty much ruling out any prospect for a real relationship."
Pounder also plans to attain a Ph.D. minor in Human Sexuality from the Kinsey Institute for Sex Research, which is based at Indiana University. Pounder holds a Masters degree in Information Management from the Arizona State University College of Business and a Bachelors degree in Finance from Michigan State University.
Prior to entering the adult industry, he worked for General Electric in the GE Capital Leadership Development Program and for WFS Financial as a Risk Analyst in their data warehouse group. More information on Pounder is available at DavePounder.com
