Van Darkholme (born October 4, 1972) is a Vietnamese American gay pornographic actor, director, an artist and photographer.

Darkholme is among the few Asian American men working in Western gay porn as a director and actor, and is of Vietnamese descent.[4] Much of his work as a director and actor contains bondage and particularly shibari, the Japanese art of rope bondage, a specialty within BDSM cultures. Van Darkholme (sometimes misspelled as "Darkholm") is a screen name; his birth name has been kept private.

Throughout the 1990s, Darkholme was a fashion and photographic model. Darkholme's book of bondage photography, Male Bondage, was published by Bruno Gmünder in June 2006.[5] In 2008, The San Francisco-based BDSM studio Kink.com hired Darkholme, where he currently directs gay pornography with an emphasis on bondage and wrestling. Darkholme self-identifies as a gay man.[6]
