Eric York's Porn Star Biography

Born on December 10 in Sweden, York was raised in Finland. He has lived in Athens, Greece, Miami, Florida, London, England, and currently resides in Los Angeles, California. "Discovered" at a Santa Monica gay nightclub by a gay porn talent scout, he began working in porn under the name "Eric Finn", but his agent, David Forest, changed it to Eric York. In an interview with the Tom of Finland Foundation, York remarked on his real name: "I'm proud of it, but it is so hard for people to remember, spell or just even say it. Eric York is an easy way out. I mean I totally understand why Touko Laaksonen was changed to Tom of Finland."

Among York's favorite things are Italian food, techno/dance music, Stephen King's writing and Colin Farrell's acting. His favorite movie is Brokeback Mountain and his favorite television show is The Simpsons. He considers the Tom of Finland men to be his role models; they are what he wants to be and inspire him to work out more at the gym.
