Van Darkholme is a Vietnamese American gay pornographic actor, director, and photographer who has become one of the most recognizable Asian men in the adult biz.

Much of his work as a director and actor contains bondage and particularly shibari, the Japanese art of bondage and knot-tying, a specialty within BDSM cultures. Van Darkholme is a screen name; his birth name has been kept private.

In the 1990s, Darkholme started as a fashion and photographic model.

Darkholme's book of bondage photography, Male Bondage, was published by Bruno Gmünder in June 2006. In 2008, The San Francisco-based BDSM studio hired Darkholme, where he currently directs gay pornography with an emphasis on bondage and wrestling.

"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, coffee houses, 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 worst."
