Helix Studios is one of the biggest and best-known twink and jock sites out there and has been delivering high quality porn for more than fourteen years. The Helix Studios site was launched at the beginning of 2002, and later that year they released their first full length movie on DVD. Back in the day they were releasing videos under the brand name SpankThis. Along this line, five more sub-studios have been introduced; 8Teenboy, Fratboy, LatinStuds, HotStuds and RawLads. Each has its own specialty and all together they make up the Helix Studios brand.
The focus here is on smooth twinks, college-aged guys and athletic jocks. While most of the guys have slender bodies, I did find some more muscular and beefy guys, as well. In my opinion, the majority of them are attractive - handsome or cute, depending on type. There's a mix of clean-cut guys as well as some with tattoos or a bit of a bad boy look. Since the Helix models come from North America, South America, and Europe, there is quite some variety in types of guys. Plenty of them have pretty big and thick cocks, and there are some uncut ones, too.
This is a very large site and it offers all kinds of action from jerk off videos to hardcore duos, and from horny threesomes to sweaty gangbangs. Besides some very enthusiastic cock sucking, rimming and twinks pounding ass or getting fucked, there is also some more kinky stuff such as bareback fucking, sex toy play, double penetration, bondage, spanking and role playing. Expect sex in bedrooms, by the pool, living rooms and locker rooms; there's also the occasional outdoor fuck session.
Helix Studios has grown to offer 2,639 scenes inside the video section (2,282 of which are from their own studios). Some of the scenes have been filmed exclusively for the website while others were pulled from their 401 listed DVDs. Besides the normal scenes, there are plenty of recorded live shows and behind-the-scenes videos, too. The site updates with three new videos every week so members always have something new to watch.
The videos here are available as downloads and streaming videos, but whether you get access to the downloadable videos depends on which membership you buy. There is a full membership that comes with downloads and streaming videos and there is a cheaper streaming-only option, as well.
The DRM-free downloads are available in M4V format, the newer vids at 1080x720 plus one or two smaller sizes at good amateur quality, the older videos at 960x540 or 640x480 at fairly good amateur quality, although the very oldest vids are amateur - but then the oldest vids are almost 14 years old. The streaming videos come in three sizes. Looking at the largest sizes, newer videos play at 960x540, while some of the older videos play at 640x480 or 640x360. The smaller downloads play fine on most mobile devices including iPhone and iPad, and membership comes with access to a mobile optimized site, as well. The videos are also optimized to play on your Roku streaming player.
Every Helix Studios scene comes with a description of the action, links to the model pages, linked tags and a picture gallery. Each gallery contains between 12 and 40 pictures; the newer photos are digital stills sized at 1000x1500 while the older photos are screencaps at either 640x469 or 480x360. The newer pictures are sharp, the older aren't bad, and they all show the performers and the action quite well. You can view the pictures online in galleries or download them all together in zip files or just download the ones you like individually.
There are also 72 standalone picture sets. These are solo shoots of some of the guys, and the pics are really great. They give a good feeling for each model, show him off both dressed and naked, and the quality of the photos and the photography is excellent. These pics are shown anywhere from 1000x1500 to 1328x1999, and each set can be downloaded in a zip file or you can save individual photos. It appears the site has stopped shooting new standalone pic sets, but do check out what's there - the model pictures are hot.
Helix Studios has built a quality product over the years, and there aren't any major issues here. There's a pre-checked email offer on the join page, so if you don't want to get emails, you'll need to uncheck it. As mentioned, some of the older videos aren't the best quality and could use some work, but there are plenty more good quality videos. The site claims daily updates but updates three times per week and also slightly exaggerates the number of videos, but with over 2,600 videos, I'm not worried about that. And one last thing is to make sure that if you want to save the videos, you don't accidentally choose the streaming-only membership option.
Helix Studios is one of the best and biggest twink sites, offering a mix of guys including super cute twinks, well-built jocks and regular guy types in a huge video library. There's plenty of action from solo masturbation and fucking to raw sex, role playing and spanking. The 2,639 videos are available as DRM-free downloads and streaming versions, and they are compatible with most mobile devices and Roku players. There are three exclusive scenes added every week, so the site constantly offers something fresh for its members. If you are looking for a site that offers tons of content featuring horny, fresh-faced guys, Helix Studios is definitely a site you won't want to miss.
