Derek da Silva is famous porn star Derek's own personal site. It is composed of writing, musings and a listing of videography and books by him. Derek has been instrumental in a wide number of causes and utterly enjoyable - and smoking hot! - videos and photographic shoots involving gay BDSM play, leather, and generally rough sex. Gorgeous to look at and for years tied closely to Tony Buff as lover and video partner, Derek is one well-rounded individual it turns out. As a leader and spokesman on AIDS issues, a cure for the disease and an advocate of Safe Sex, Derek has also spawned enormous interest in and expositions about all the issues close to his heart. He speaks, for example of "the ground rules" of rough sexual play. He waxes on as well about tattoos - of which he has many - and how to approach the notion for the aspirant. He speaks lovingly of his former mate, Tony, and of how difficult it has been since they parted. There is a human here - smart, sexy, open to others and to experimentation, both socially and sexually. Derek da Silva is one of the more interesting characters in the gay world. His wide experience in his particular realms of "sexual deviancy" make for hot and informative reading. This is a hugely recommended place to read and dwell a spell.
