Dave Pounder Porn Star
Dave Pounder is an adult film producer, director, and performer. He produces and directs approximately four movies per year, primarily aimed at the young, college-couples market. Dave is a white male, 30 years old, 6'3" tall, 185 lbs., with blonde hair, blue eyes, and an athletic/slender body build. He was born in Haroldwood, England (Essex County) while his father was working oversees for Ford Motor Company. A few months after his birth, his family returned to Farmington Hills, MI, a suburb approximately 20 miles northwest of Detroit, where Dave spent the first 18 years of his life growing up.
Ironically, Dave attended Detroit Catholic Central High School where he studied college prep courses and started to develop an interest in porn. After graduation, Dave attended Michigan State University where he graduated with a Bachelors degree in Finance and met the first love of his life, Leslie. Dave accepted a position with GE Capital in the Leadership Development Program, an exclusive management training program at General Electric, which required him to relocate ever six months to different cities including Philadelphia, Denver, and Richmond. During the program, Dave held key positions in Risk Management, Finance, Information Technology, and Marketing. After working for two years, Dave attended Arizona State University and attained a Masters degree in Information Management from the College of Business. It was at Arizona State where Dave became very active sexually and joined the swinger community in Phoenix. Upon graduation, Dave accepted a position as a Business Intelligence Analyst for WFS Financial, a subsidiary of Wachovia Bank, in Irvine, CA, where he still lives today.
In addition to running his own production company, Dave is Executive Vice President for Daydream Entertainment Group in Glendale, CA, an adult Internet company which has developed a pro-am, character-based, adult reality website around Dave's personality, www.bikinibanger.com. The Bikini Banger line was nominated by Adult Video News (AVN) as Best Pro-Am Series, and the Bikini Banger Vol. 2 title was nominated as Best Pro-Am Release. Prior to producing and directing, Dave performed in hundreds of adult films for a period of just under two years, where he was the only male performer in the business that did not engage in anal sex scenes and refused to perform in scenes involving violence and/or degrading of the women involved in the production. In an effort to appeal to mainstream audiences, all movies released by Dave Pounder Productions do not include any anal sex, violence, or degradation toward the people involved, and the company has just instituted a condom-only policy to further protect performers and show an element of social responsibility.
In addition to porn, Dave co-hosts Real Talk, a call-in radio show similar to Loveline, on 97.1FM KLSX in Los Angeles, where people call in and discuss issues related to dating, relationships, and current events. Real Talk originated in 2001 on KUCI 88.9FM at the University of California at Irvine. Dave is one of only a few porn personalities who has also gained acceptance by the mainstream entertainment industry. He has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Weakest Link, Blind Date, 5th Wheel, and several other mainstream television programs, in addition to appearing in music videos for Fiona Apple, Engine Down, and the Willowz. Dave has given several speeches and lectures regarding adult entertainment at Indiana University, The University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), and several other respected academic and policy institutions. Dave is one of only a handful of adult celebrities with membership in both the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA); in addition, he was signed to Baron Entertainment, which is one of only a handful of SAG franchised talent agencies in Los Angeles.
Outside of the entertainment realm, Dave enjoys playing tennis, bicycling, kayaking, hiking and camping, going to the beach, and just about anything else outdoors. He also enjoys watching DVDs, biographies, and documentaries at home, reading non-fiction, and playing chess. He is very interested in an active, healthy lifestyle. He does not drink, smoke, nor is he involved with any kind of illegal drugs. His future plans include a complete retirement from performing in adult films so he may focus on developing an intimate relationship, producing a television documentary on the social, psychological and economic costs of performing in adult films, syndicating his radio show nationwide, attaining a black belt in Hung Gar and/or Muay Thai, and ultimately writing a book about all of his experiences. Dave would also like to play an active role in shaping the future of adult entertainment and ensuring the viability of the industry. He is a strong proponent of legislating mandatory condom use in the production, distribution, and retail sales of adult content, raising the legal age limit to perform in adult films from 18 to 21 years, and expanding STD testing and access to secure online test results for adult performers at any given time. Dave was admitted to and attended a fully-funded Ph.D. program at Indiana University (Kinsey Institute) to study the psychological and sociological effects of sex and sexuality in media. His dissertation was to see if there was a relationship between consumption of adult content and the propensity to be unfaithful in a committed relationship.
Dave's all-American, boy-next-door looks, coupled with his charming personality, intellectual curiosity and drive to succeed are sure to propel him further into the spotlight as he continues to pursue both adult and mainstream ventures.
