Kody Knight

Introducing Kody Knight

Spending the afternoon with Kody Knight is like receiving a gentle reminder to turn your attention to the small moments of the day. Getting ice cream on the beach, people watching in the park and brainstorming ideas for his photo shoot all contained casual but focused interactions that revealed a depth of character within the young man. Maybe it’s his calm Southern demeanor or humble nature but it is in these simple exchanges that you really get to know Kody.

“With his perfect jock physique and gorgeous All-American looks, Kody is sure to become gay porn’s next big star,” says Helix Studios owner Keith Miller. “Kody is not your typical model. He has a very genuine quality about him…one that is sure to have a broad appeal. He is a real gem and we are very excited to have him.”

Kody Knight

Naturally, Kody was the center of attention at this years Phoenix Pride Festival as he worked the crowd at the Helix booth. And it was no surprise that Helix’s newest Exclusive Model was the fan favorite given his impeccable credentials as the portrait of an All-American stud: 18 years-old, 5’10″, 136.3 Ibs, 7″ cut cock, Brown hair, Blue eyes, Honors student and 5-sport athlete.

Up until joining the Helix Family, Kody focussed on academics and playing a variety of sports including cross-country, soccer, wrestling, tennis and track. Kody also considers himself an avid outdoorsman spending much of his time camping, hiking and going to the beach. He now plans to pursue a degree in Exercise & Sports Science at USC with the goal of becoming a Physical Therapist.

Kody doesn’t feel the need to identify himself as gay or straight and given that the young jock came to Helix Studios as a virgin, he also doesn’t seem content to fit his life into anyone else’s conventional narrative either. It is the complexity of Kody’s story that has fans clamoring to see his first scene, an intimate RealCam with Andy Taylor. And the interview accompanying his introductory photo shoot was filmed just one day before his first sex scene and serves to document Kody’s feelings about having sex before he is deflowered. The way that Kody reflects on the tensions and expectations that exist when losing your virginity, especially on camera, unequivocally makes him a distinct figure in the ever expanding Helix Family.

We look forward to seeing what other surprises Kody has in store for us in what’s sure to be a distinguished modeling career. Get to know Kody better by following him on Twitter @kodyknightXXX

Friday’s festivities kicked off with the introduction of Helix’s sensationally hot new Exclusive Model, Kody Knight. Observant fans got their first look at the All-American stud as he worked the crowd at the Helix booth, danced across town for the Pride Parade and chilled out by the pool. The teen boy’s athletic body served as eye candy for the hungry onlookers while Helix fans got a taste of what’s to come from Kody when his debut scene is released April 17th. Kody’s first scene (filmed in Phoenix with Andy Taylor) is a literal cherry-popper as the Helix Real Cam captures the loss of Kody’s virginity! That’s right, Kody’s first scene with Helix Studios is his first time ever having sex!!

Among the weekend’s highlights was the wet and wild ION Phoenix/Helix Studios float at the pride parade. The 60′s beach themed float was topped with the Helix models scantily clad in their barely-there skin tight bathing suits. When they started getting silly and squirting each other with water it was a literal show stopper as the audience gawked at the party on wheels.

I'm on a float!

The Helix History of Underwear

To express appreciation for our favorite garment we’re taking you on a trip back in time to see how underwear has changed over the decades. From loincloths to jockstraps, codpieces to tighty whities, boxers to thongs, the history of undergarments reveals a lot about how we perceive ourselves and how we’re viewed by others. It’s fascinating to see how underwear has changed over the last hundred years but even more intriguing to note what’s stayed the same.

1) Loincloth

A loincloth is a one-piece garment which covers the genitals. Men have worn a loincloth or breechcloth as a fundamental piece of clothing in most societies throughout human history, especially those which disapproved of genital nakedness.

Loin Cloth

2) Codpiece

A codpiece is a covering flap or pouch that attaches to the front of the crotch of men’s trousers and usually accentuates the genital area. It was an important item of European clothing in the 15th and 16th centuries and is still wore in the modern era including in the leather subculture and in athletics as a protective “cup”.

Classic Codpiece

Nice codpiece

3) Boxer shorts

Boxer shorts or simply “Boxers” helped introduce the hole in the undergarment known as the “fly” for easy access to the penis for urinating. From Victorian times into the 1930s, men had mostly worn tight-fitting knee-length flannel “drawers” beneath their pants and donned similarly snug flannel tops as undershirts. Some men prefer boxers for their comfort and scientific studies have suggested that the looser fitting underwear are better for sperm fertility.

4) Classic Briefs

“Boxers or briefs?” Before the 1920s, this question would have gotten you little more than a blank look, mostly because neither boxers nor briefs had been invented yet. Briefs are a type of short, tight underwear and swimwear, as opposed to styles where the material extends down the legs.

5) Modern Briefs

Modern briefs were popularized by brands such as Jockey and Calvin Klein. They have become iconic fashion staples for their simplicity and utility. A common erotic theme includes getting the undergarment wet causing the white fabric to become see-through.

6) Jockstraps

A jockstrap is an undergarment originally designed for supporting the male genitalia during sports or other vigorous physical activity. More recently, ‘fashion jockstraps’ have become popular as regular underwear worn by men as an alternative to other styles. Jockstraps for athletic purposes are most commonly worn in North America.

7) Thongs

Viewed from the front, the thong typically resembles a bikini bottom but at the back the material is reduced to a minimum. Thongs are almost always designed to cover the genitals and leave part or most of the buttocks uncovered. The thong typically consists of a thin waistband and a thin strip of material, designed to be worn between the buttocks, that connects the middle of the waistband with the bottom front of the garment. One type of thong is the G-string, the back of which consists only of a string.

8) Sagging

Sagging is a manner of wearing the pants so that the top is significantly below the waist, sometimes revealing much of the underwear.

10) Free-balling

And if you’re not into wearing underwear there’s always “free-balling”! Freeballing, also known as “going commando”, is the practice of not wearing underwear under one’s clothes and is good for providing quick access to the genitals.

7 Ways to Overcome the Fear of Rejection

The fear of being rejected by someone you have a crush on can be overwhelming, but some level of rejection is inevitable in life and shouldn’t prevent us from pursuing someone we love. This fear of unrequited love is a common experience from youth through adulthood but we can learn to manage and overcome these negative feelings:

 

Shawn Allen and Adrian Rivers
1. Know that fear is the only thing holding you back. 
You’ve heard Franklin D. Roosevelt’s quote, “Only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” No other statement sums up fear better. You might see yourself being turned down when playing out the scenario in your head, which disrupts what you want to communicate to your crush. It will not help your cause if you feel anxious or even defensive towards the person.

Instead, visualize the situation working out exactly the way you hoped it would. You will go into the situation more confidently if you focus on the outcome you desire over the possibility of rejection.

 

Ryker Madison
2. Rejection is not the end of the world!
All variations of fear, including the fear of rejection, thrive on “end of the world” thinking. In other words, our emotions convoke us that an undesirable outcome results in complete ego annihilation.

So what if he rejects you?

It won’t result in the “end of the world,” but if we convince ourselves that the consequences are worse than they are, our fear will paralyze us and limit our chances of ever getting the guy we want.

Ask yourself what’s the worst possible response you would get from your crush after approaching him/her about chilling together. Then think about how you will allow yourself to deal with being upset for a little bit, then how you will deal with it and move on. Just doing this exercise will help you to feel less fear around the possibility of rejection.

 

Mitch Hudson
3. What rejection really means. 
If a person discovers a 200-carat white diamond in the Earth but due to ignorance, believes it is worthless and thus tosses it aside, does this tell us more about the diamond or the person? Along the same lines, when one person rejects another it reveals a lot more about the “rejector” than the “rejected.” All you are really seeing is the often shortsighted opinion of one person. Consider the following…

If J.K. Rowling stopped after being rejected by multiple publishers for years, there would be no Harry Potter. If Howard Schultz gave up after being turned down by 200 banks there would be no Starbucks. If Walt Disney quit too soon after his theme park concept was trashed by 300+ investors there would be no Disney World.

One thing is for sure: If you give too much power to the opinions of others you will become their prisoner. So never let someone’s opinion alter your reality. Never sacrifice who you are, or who you aspire to be, just because someone else has a problem with it. Love who you are inside and out and keep pushing forward.

 

Andy Taylor
4. Live in the moment.
You can train yourself to live right here, right now without regretting how others once made you feel, or fearing the possibility of future judgement.

Life is short, so if you like someone and want to spend more time with him/her NOW is your time to do something about it and like anything else focusing on the task at hand is more effective. By being completely in the moment and focusing on asking out your crush, you’re able to make a real connection which will up your chances by a good margin.

The past is irrelevant, and the future doesn’t exist yet so savor the moment whatever the outcome. The experience is sure to enrich you.

 

5. Just let go!
People who never learn to question their emotions, especially when they’re feeling nervous or anxious make life much more difficult than it has to be. It’s time to let go a little. Being more confident in life partly means being OK with not knowing what’s going to happen, so you can relax and allow things to play out naturally.

 

Casey Tanner and Evan Parker
6. Be your charming self.
If anyone is worth spending time with, they’re going to like you for you, not some phony front you put up in order to impress. Any time worth spent with someone isn’t worth spending unless it’s authentic.

Bottom Line: Don’t change so someone will like you. Be yourself and the right person will love the real you.

 

Jamie Sanders
7. Rejection can be used to your benefit.
As soon as someone critiques and criticizes you and as soon as you are rejected, you might find yourself thinking, “Well, that proves once again that I am not worthy”.

Rejection is a necessary medic; it teaches you how to reject relationships and opportunities that aren’t going to work, so you can find new ones that will. It doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough, only that one particular person failed to see what you have to offer.

Will you be hurt for a moment? Of course, you’re human. But when the emotions subside, you’ll be less afraid to try again, knowing that you’ve leaped outside of your safety zone.

Remember that it doesn’t matter what people think of you. The less afraid you are to go after what you want, the more chances you’ll have at actually getting it. It’s worth taking the chance because either way there is something to gain.

Sports are Gay

Issues surrounding the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia have highlighted a year of intersection between sports and gay life including:

  • Ongoing protests at the Olympics for recently enacted anti-gay laws in Russia 1
  • Olympic diver Tom Daley revealing he’s in a relationship with a man 2
  • Backlash for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups being awarded to Russia and Qatar, respectively, despite acknowledgment that openly gay fans will be arrested 3
  • College Football star Michael Sam on the verge of becoming the first openly gay NFL player 4
  • Fellow NFL player Chris Kluwe being pushed out of his job for vocally supporting same-sex marriage laws 5
  • 12-year NBA veteran Jason Collins being passed over by every team after coming out 6
  • Soccer players Robbie Rogers, Thomas Hitzlsperger and Casey Stoney (England Women’s Captain) receiving a mixed bag of support and condemnation for their pioneering decision to reveal their sexuality 7,8,9

Update: Jason Collins is now set to become the first openly gay NBA player by signing a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets 10

Even Helix Studios’ own Liam Riley drew considerable attention and criticism online from the likes of Nerve, The Wire and Yahoo News for his decision to retire from competitive cheerleading after a decorated career to become a porn model. Personally, when I see young men and women like Liam who can “live in their truth from this young age”—and in a very public way—I believe they are helping others find how to live open and honest lives as well. Liam has said that the month he has spent with the Helix boys has been the best time of his life. We should celebrate Liam for choosing happiness and love, he is one of the athletes and young people helping show us the way.

And I wonder, at the next Olympics will the gay citizens of Russia, gay fans from around the world, LGBTQ allies like Chris Kluwe and other gay athletes, will they be able to celebrate their love and sexuality? I think and hope Yes! The willingness of Tom Daley, Michael Sam, Jason Collins, Robbie Rogers, Thomas Hitzlsperger, Casey Stoney and Liam Riley to live openly in the brightest and most scrutinizing of spotlights that is professional sports will indeed contribute to changing our homophobic culture.

Sign the Change.org petition to stop LGBTQ abuses at world sporting events

Ultimately, we should be playing sports to build an understanding of camaraderie, sportsmanship, trust, fair play and teamwork between diverse people. Sports should be uplifting and fun, not divisive. So, as we often do here at Helix Studios, let’s remind ourselves of the silly and lighter side of things in life. We hope you enjoy our Top 10 Super Sexy Sports Scenes (with some can’t miss bonus footage!) because in the end we all win when we’re on the same team.

Scandal at Helix Academy

NEW RELEASE: Scandal at Helix Academy

Helix Studios is proud to announce the second installment of it’s Cybersocket Award-Winning SeriesHelix Academy. Evan Parker, Jessie Montgomery, Casey Tanner and the rest of the boys return for a brand new semester of lying, scheming, secret screwing and other expulsion-worthy activities. Scandal at Helix Academy promises even more juicy private school drama than the hugely popular original!

For the next chapter in the storied boys school we have acquired more top talent behind the scenes and poured additional resources into Scandal making it our most ambitious project yet. With a focus on obsessively detailed sets, on-location filming, scripted story lines and artistic videography we hope to continue challenging conventional ideas of the industry and blur the lines more between porn and erotic filmmaking. We have been working closely with local band The Social Animal to craft an original soundtrack for the series with the goal of finally breaking away from porn’s dubious generic and canned muzak. All this effort has paid off with Scandal capturing an ambitious new look and feel.

Chapter I sets the scandal in motion with the bright lights squarely on Ryker Madison as he takes the starring role accompanied by all your favorite Helix Studios boys as the dirt unfolds with the release of Chapter II on Tuesday February 18, Chapter III on Sunday February 23 and the climactic finale in Chapter IV on Sunday March 2.

This school year also introduces plenty of fresh faces including an appearance from Helix’s newest hot thing Liam Riley who follows up his 5-Star debut scenes “Sex en Rouge” and “Daytripping”.  Zayne Donovan and Jacob Dixon also get their first look at the sexy student body while young teacher Doug Acre is quick to learn about the temptations of life at the Academy when Ryker Madison sneaks into class early to engage in some extracurricular activities. It looks like it’s going to be a long hard year for Mr. Acre if he falls for every trap the twink schoolboys plan for him and he would be wise to study up on the the new students around campus.
