OFTEN IMITATED, NEVER DUPLICATED!
Dirk Yates has been entertaining gay men with his famous military guy sex videos for nearly three decades. But it wasn't until 1993 that he became a household name when CNN discovered that Camp Pendleton Marines had been appearing in his "Private Collection" video series.
The result:"Private Collection" videos began flying off the shelves and Dirk Yates became a name synonymous with gay porn. It wasn't long until his notoriety was such that he was able to bankroll a new gay porn studio, All Worlds Video, which featured videos by other big name directors such as Jerry Douglas, Michael Zen, Wash West and Chi Chi LaRue. Under the All Worlds Video label he went from shooting active duty military studs with an amateur handheld camera to putting those same hunks in big budget productions that made them superstars.
Among Dirk's most infamous award-winning titles are "Men For All Seasons," "Tales From the Foxhole," "Jar Head" and the highly successful "Barracks Glory Hole" and "The Few, The Proud & The Naked" series. Yates discoveries include gay porn legends Axel Garrett, Rick Donovan, Eric Manchester, Mason Jarr, Tim Lowe, Dean Phoenix, Rod Barry and Barrett Long. In the Spring of 2006, Channel 1 Releasing acquired the prolific film studio and with Dirk's assistance has continued making quality feature films under the All Worlds brand as well as the continually growing Dirk Yates brand.
