Helix Studios has been delivering twink and jock porn for more than sixteen years, and is one of the biggest and best-known twink sites out there. 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, and since then five more sub-studios have been introduced; 8Teenboy, Fratboy, LatinStuds, HotStuds, and RawLads. Each has its own specialty and together they make up the Helix Studios brand. It's been a while since we last visited the site, so let's see what's been happening.
The focus here is on smooth twinks, college-aged guys, and athletic jocks. While many of the guys have slender bodies, I did find some more muscular guys, as well a couple who were slightly husky. Most of the performers here are attractive - handsome or cute, depending on type - and there are some twinks who are absolutely gorgeous. There's a mix of clean-cut guys as well as some scruffier types with tattoos or a bit of a bad boy look. Since the Helix models come from North America, South America, and Europe, there's a good variety in types when it comes to their guys. A good number of them are well-hung with big, thick cocks, and there are some uncut ones as well.
This is a large site that offers all kinds of action from solo jerkoff sessions to sweaty gangbangs, as well as plenty of hardcore duos and horny threesomes. Besides some very enthusiastic cock sucking, rimming and twinks pounding ass or getting fucked, you can also expect some more kinky stuff; not only is there lots of bareback fucking - you'll also find sex toy play, double penetration, bondage, spanking and role playing. The sex happens in bedrooms, by the pool, in living rooms and locker rooms, and there's also the occasional outdoor fuck session.
Helix Studios currently offers 2,556 videos in the VIDEOS section, 2,196 of which are from Helix Studios, and there are three updates each week. They're available to download, the newer videos at 1920x1080 at good amateur quality or better plus there are three smaller sizes, some good for mobiles. The oldest videos are available in M4V format at 640x480 and one smaller size, and these are surprisingly sharp and clear considering their age, and both sizes are mobile compatible. The streaming video player is sized at 640x360 but can be expanded to full screen; the newer videos are offered in six qualities and the two highest look good even when enlarged. The oldest videos, however, are smaller than the player at 480x360, and are only offered in that single size; they look pretty good considering their age but don't fare well at full screen. The videos are compatible with most mobiles.
Each Helix Studios scene comes with links to the model pages, linked tags, and a picture gallery. Each gallery contains between 12 and just over 40 pictures; the newer photos are good quality digital stills sized at 1000x1500 while the older photos are pretty good screencaps at either 640x480 or 480x360. There are also 78 standalone photo sets of the guys offered larger than the new sets at good to very good quality. You can view the pictures online in galleries, download entire sets in zip files or download the pics you like individually.
Now let's talk about updates and the video breakdown. The site updates three times per week, and two to three of those updates are from Helix itself. About once every three to five updates, they add a video from a different site. As mentioned, 2,182 of the 2,538 videos are from Helix Studios itself; then 232 are bonus videos from sites like French Twinks, Dominic Ford, and Puppy Productions; the rest are from other Helix sub-studios, and all of these are listed with the main videos.
While there's a MOVIES section that lists all the various Helix DVDs including their other labels, this isn't additional content. The Helix Studios DVD scenes link to the scenes listed in the VIDEOS section; the rest of the DVDs lead offsite to a store.
Does the site have any issues? There's a pre-checked offer on the billing page that, if left checked, will sign you up for a recurring membership to 8teenBoy, another Helix site. By the way, if you're interested in 8teenBoy, the pre-checked offer recurs at only $14.95 per month, about half the site's regular price. When you join, you automatically agree to receive emails, and I don't know if there's a way to cancel this after joining. The monthly membership costs $19.95 initially, then increases $15 per month so rebills cost $34.95. And the video download links are down at the bottom of the pages, so scroll all the way down to find them.
Last, there's lots of ads in the members area including an animated one to the top right of the members home page; there are more ads on the episode and member home page on the right as well. And there's a row of thumbs across the bottom of the pages that could be mistaken for content but are actually ads for a live cam site; there's also a link to 8teenBoy on the right top of the menu, but you'd have to join to see the content there.
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 2,556 videos are available to stream on your desktop, most mobile devices and pretty much anything that streams MP4s. There are three 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.
