Hello! My name is Van Darkholme and thank you for visiting my blog. I am now working as a director and performer for Kink.com in San Francisco. In 2008, I created Kinkmen for the company. Under the Kinkmen umbrella, I created BoundGods.com, MenonEdge.com, 30MinutesofTorment.com, NakedKombat.com, and BoundinPublic.com.
Update 3-1-2015: I’m taking six months sabbatical from work and writing about it on this blog.
Update 11-5-2017: I moved to the Carolinas and no longer working for Kink.com. I’m surrounded by forest on my 15 acres of land!
Here’s a little something about me: As of 7-05-2009, a portion of the profits from this website will go to KIVA.org. At Kiva you can give out small loans ($25) to individuals in undeveloped countries. People get these loans to run small businesses etc. I’ve been doing this since Nov 2008, and people do pay me back. I just use the money to lend out to other people again and again. My goal is to lend out to 100 people this year. That’s why a portion of the profits from VanDarkholme.com will go toward my Kiva goal. You can check out my progress on my lender page: http://www.kiva.org/lender/VanDarkholme
I know you all think it’s funny/bizarre doing some good with porn. I think you all can relate to “doing the best you can with what you got.” :)
I’m Vietnamese – 6ft tall and 185 lbs. Yes, I’m that tall. Everyone makes a big deal about it – me being tall and Vietnamese :) My father was 6ft 3″ tall, and my mother is 5ft 10″. English is my third language so please pardon my grammar. In Vietnamese, we don’t have singular or plural, tenses, or strange grammar rules. I’m still struggling with all that.
My life consists of working on my bondage art, going to the gym, restaurants with friends, having small dinner parties, riding my Triumph Bonneville motorcycle, working in my garden, watching a lot of junk TV, the usual boring stuff.
Update 11-5-2017: I live in a forest now, so it’s working on my land and cutting down some trees for my bondage camp.
Most of the time my sex life is pretty vanilla. I’m more of a top (physically and mentally), but I can also make a hell of a bottom. First choice is being a top and dominate my buddy. Second choice is flip fuck with a buddy. Some of my best sex is flip fucking. Good old oral sex is also fun. I guess sex is like pizza when it’s bad it’s still good :)
If you haven’t noticed it already, I also have an interest in bondage. I view it as art and jo material more than anything else. It’s hard to describe my thing with bondage, but I will try. I’m continually figuring new ways to put people in bondage. Yes, that’s all I think of. I get this adrenaline rush when I’m in a session. My M.O. (Modus operandi) is that I love to record the bondage session with photos and/or videos. Then, I get off on it later. When I look at the photos or video clips of the session days later, it really turns me on, and I get a sense of satisfaction from it. I think everyone has his own idiosyncrasy and this is mine. I guess it could be worse.
Well, I don’t want to babble too much. It kinda reminds me of my Mount Fuji experience. I went to Japan and saw Mount Fuji while riding the bullet train. Mount Fuji was capped with snow, and I must say it was magnificent. So I thought it would be even better if I take a tour up the mountain. To my surprise, Mount Fuji was pretty ordinary up close. The ride up the mountain was very dull. There was trees everywhere, but I can see a scene like these pretty much anywhere in California. So, a little distance and a little mystery is good :)
I always love to hear from people from all walks of life… from different corners of the world. So, please send me an email to say hello, how did you stumble on my site, how can I make this site better, tell me something about yourself and include a pic of yourself… naughty or nice:)
Thanks for visiting.
