Van Darkholme Bio

van darkholme


My name is Van Darkholme and thank you for visiting my blog. I was born in Vietnam and currently, I am living in San Francisco. I’m 100% Vietnamese – 6ft tall and 180 lbs. Yes, I’m that tall. Everyone makes a big deal about it :) 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.  I am now working as a director and performer for , and

Update 3-1-2015: I’m taking 6 months sabbatical from work and writing about it on this blog.

Here’s a little something about me: As of 7-05-2009, a portion of the profit from this website will go to 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 100% profit from will go toward my Kiva goal. You can check out my progress on my lender page:

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.” :)

My life consist 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 stuffs.

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 constantly 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 really 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 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 boring. There was trees everywhere but I can see 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.

x Van

  2. Like many people in China, I’m impressed waching your workings. When it comes to “philo♂sophy”(in China,especially on bilibili it means the workings by you and other artists like kazuya,Billy Herrington,etc.)everything becomes different, we have very interesting kibitzers,”translate” straight by sound to chinese…indeed that’s how I firstly met “philo♂sophy”, love to see more workings.
