Helix Studios Review

Overview

  • Site Name: Helix Studios
  • Primary Category: Twinks

General Details

  • Review Date: Feb 14, 2014
  • Intro: Helix Studios has a long history of delivering up hot twinks on DVD and the Internet, and today seems to have a corner on the market. Initially, Helix had a humble beginning featuring spanking and average twink videos. However, the studio has come a long way, and today Helix presents an impressive line-up across the college men and teen boy spectrum. The studio even boasts a Roku channel that allows subscribers to stream their offerings directly to their television set in HD. Helix has also managed to churn out award-winning DVD titles at the same time as running an easy to navigate smoothly functioning website. With over 2000 titles and three updates per week, the site is a great value, and the production quality is exceptional. In addition to hot models, the scenes themselves are fresh and creative. “Sex en Rouge,” for example, presents homage to old-time cabaret shows. The intro of this video contains a smoky room and curtain opening, with great lighting and effects. “Peeking Pleasure” begins with a view from outside a window as too twinks start to go at it. The new Real Cam series has some good POV footage. With videos that are a far cry from throwing two twinks on a bed and letting them go at it, Helix delivers its product well and with exacting standards.

Main Reviews

  • Creative and Ingenious Content

    The recent addition of separate photosets shows the creativity that is flowing through the veins of the studio as of late. The "Evan & Andy" photoshoot evokes a 20's paperboy feel with the guys in knickers and caps. There are all sorts of well-executed fantasy situations, from schoolboy / teacher to white collar manager / messenger boy. The sets are varied and well designed, and the intros aren't too cheesy. A lot of twink porn from other studios tends to be either poorly executed or endless bad parody porn - Helix has bucked the trend and reversed it.

    Pro 1
  • Quality Execution

    If you are familiar with Helix's early work, you will be pleasantly flabbergasted at how good the production values are these days. It's as if Helix has stolen several mainstream Hollywood directors and kept them busy filming twink porn. There is a great attention to detail, from the teaser vids, graphic design, opening shots, b-roll, and actual sex. And the sex is high quality as well. Lots of great close-ups as well as long shots that afford a view of both the penetration and the faces.

    Pro 2
  • Hot Twinks!

    The twinks are hot, and there is a wide variety. From naughty boy Matthew Keading to "classic good looks" Andy Taylor; from party boys to school boys, Helix brings this fresh new talent into a studio that stretches their limits (and assholes) and has enough diversity of looks to make the different types of content all work together. Who would think of going from military to office to bedroom to spanking to jock all in the same site within a few months? Apparently, Helix has, and is doing it well with a great crew of models.

    Pro 3
  • Search/Filter Functionality

    With an amazingly large library of over 2000 videos, Helix offers its customers a huge amount of content for a reasonable price - however, unlike some sites with 1000+ videos, it isn't as easy to find what you are looking for as it could be. One might expect to see the videos in reverse chronological order, for example, or to be able to filter a model's scene down to the bareback only videos.

    Con 1
  • Could Use More Bonus Content

    The bonus content offered is another plus that comes with a Helix subscription. The bloopers are funny, and the behind the scenes interesting. The official blog also let's everyone take a peek behind the curtain and is an interesting read. With a site this big, though, this reviewer can't help but feel there could be even more. With the recent addition of extra photosets, perhaps more is in the works.
