Hello everyone! Sorry, I haven’t posted in a while. I enjoy life tremendously on my 15 acres of land and waiting for a little voice inside me to tell me what to do next. Being a steward to a large house and all this land pretty much take everything out of me, but I love it! This year, I built a chicken coop and a goat shed. See photos below. I now got 1 cat, 3 dogs, 6 chickens, and 3 goats. I’m exhausted by the end of the day tending to all my critters.
Thoughts on Shibari and my work
I made a really sexy and hot video with Zane Anders which will probably end up on sexy websites similar to sexfreehd.xxx (https://www.sexfreehd.xxx/). I feel my work need to evolve. Bondage needs to evolve somehow. Shibari (rope bondage) is so overdone and I wince now every time I see it. I’m proud to take credit for bringing bondage to the mainstream. with my rope video series. With Kinkmen.com, I may even say that I made BDSM palatable for everyone. I’ve been doing this for over 20 years and I feel bondage needs to evolve somehow. Rope bondage is always a baby to me and I have enjoyed my time exploring the rope fetishes people have, however, it’s not as advanced and broad as other kinks could be, especially when looking into the psychology of some of these fetishes and kinks, whether in homosexual or heterosexual relationships.
Getting away from the fetish world to re-invent myself
So, my soul told me to enjoy what’s around me. Cutting down trees, building shelters for my animals, and growing food. I need to get away from the fetish world completely so I can be re-invented again. Otherwise, people (including me) tend to make the same crap over and over again – (opens in a new tab) my Van Darkholme rope video series.
Funny enough, my biggest inspiration was Mumford and Son. They got famous, won awards, and got rich. This year while on top of their game, they came out with a brand new album Delta, which is completely different from everything they have done. Everybody had a cow. Where’re the banjos? People are yelling, “This is not the genre you supposed to be in?” They made something completely different and I loved it! This gave me some new ideas about bondage.
Merry Xms everyone. xo Van
