Pornstar professor resigns from teaching post
The Chemistry professor has resigned after his second job as a pornstar was revealed
A chemistry professor at the University of Manchester, Nicholas Goddard, was revealed a pornstar last week and he has now resigned from his teaching job.
Professor Goddard has performed in pornos under the name Old Nick for the past 10 years.
His work included a series called “Beauty and the Senior”, including a film named “Blonde teen Lexi gets f*cked by Old Nick”, which has gained more than a million hits on PornHub and shows him have sex with girls over 40 years younger than him.
He has been a professor of chemical engineering at the university for almost 25 years, and says he stars in porn to relieve the stress of divorce.
Reportedly, he was recognised by a student in one of his films, prompting the investigation.
This morning, a spokesman at the University of Manchester told the Metro: “Professor Nick Goddard has resigned from his position at the University with effect from April 1 2016.
“His teaching and supervision duties will be undertaken by other colleagues between now and April 1 2016.”
Defending his work last week, Professor Goddard told The Sun: “There is such hypocrisy with people watching porn then complaining about those who act in it.
“Why would students and staff be happy to watch it, but unhappy when they see who stars in them?”
