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

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.

Helix Studios is proud to announce the second installment of it’s Cybersocket Award-Winning Series, Helix 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. Introducing the new Helix Hellcats:
Stay tuned for all the sex and drama swirling around your favorite All-American schoolboys including plenty of exclusive Behind the Scenes pictures of your Helix Hellcats!

Love is something all of us here at Helix Studios would like to extend to you, especially on this Saint Valentine’s Day. Thank you for being part of the love that inspires so many things: friendship, romance, compassion, trust, forgiveness, patience, comfort, safety and great sex.
Love is complicated but we keep loving because that’s where life is found. It’s where the most creativity is happening, where you find people still fighting for meaning. All the love to you our friends, from now to infinity.
One of the beautiful things about being young is that the world is full of first times. Andy Taylor and Evan Parker have shared a number of firsts since joining Helix Studios: Evan was Andy’s first scene partner in “Morning Sex”, Evan’s first time bottoming was for Andy in “Evan Parker Bottoms”, the boys shot the first Helix Real Cam scene together and now Evan and Andy help us roll out the newest feature of HelixStudios.com with the inaugural Helix Members Area Photoset featuring the sweet young couple just in time for Valentine’s Day:
The Members Area will now contain photos available exclusively to Helix Studios Members. This is the first time many of the models have been photographed for an official fashion shoot and the process requires a certain amount of courage and vulnerability. Working with a professional photographer is demanding, especially when exploring an erotic concept or fashion idea but, as they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words” and we hope that these stylized and intimate photosets reveal a different side of the boys that you have come to know so well.
While the goal of these photo shoots may be to capture the unique personality of the featured model, it is also to challenge them to grow in unexpected ways. Some of the boys have found that high fashion is their true calling while others have thrived off the instruction provided by a creative director and have gone on to pursue careers in film and stage acting. Maybe surprisingly, we have even seen a few of the models realize that their passions lay behind the camera and have started creating their own photography and visual art.
For Evan and Andy, their on-screen chemistry blossomed into a budding friendship that has since become romantic. The boyfriends have proven to be each other’s muses as they’ve become involved in the creative process as part of the Production Team at Helix Studios contributing to everything from script writing and set design to makeup and wardrobe. It’s wonderful to see motivated young men supporting and challenging one another at work and in their relationship. They have been a constant source of ideas and inspiration and we are very fortunate to be surrounded by two people who love each other so much.
You may have first spotted him with the Helix Academy boys winning Movie of the Year at the 14th Annual Cybersocket Web Awards, but now Helix Studios is proud to officially introduce our newest Exclusive Model, 19-year old Liam Riley.
Fans will get their first taste of Liam’s strong body and smooth seductive powers in his porn debut Sex En Rouge. Liam comes to Helix Studios as a decorated cheerleader with no better trophy or proof of his hard work and winner’s pedigree then his own strong, tight body. Rest assured, Helix has put these attributes to good use: “The way he moves and bends is something beautiful to watch” Director of Operations, Deniz Bilgin says. “He is an acrobat of sex. We know the fans will fall in love with him like we have.”
“Liam has a special kind of talent, gifted with an adorable smile, natural sex appeal, not to mention one of the most perfect, roundest, smoothest bubble butts ever to grace the screen. Unlike his cheerleading skills, no amount of training can produce these results. He was born that way,” touts Bilgin.
Now on the verge of becoming a Helix star, Liam was first a Helix fan. He dreamed of working with the likes of Evan Parker or Andy Taylor so for this special young man’s debut we’ve granted Liam his wish as he stars with Andy in Helix’s newest short feature film:
The curtains part. The stage lights come on. The bed is lowered into position…

There were plenty of familiar faces at the star studded event as well as a few surprises from the judges when the winners were revealed. Helix Studios had a strong showing at this year’s annual awards with seven nominations including Best Video Site, Best Mobile Site and Best Sex Scene for the “Helix Live Show Orgy”. It proved to be a night of big wins for twinks across the industry with Helix Academy winning Movie of the Year and the two other prominent prizes going to Levi Karter (Best New Porn Star) and Johnny Rapid (Best Porn Star). We would like to congratulate all the winners and send a big THANK YOU to our fans for voting Helix Academy your Movie of the Year!

Chase Young has become ubiquitous in the porn scene, hooking up with every hot guy trending on the web. The bubble butt power bottom has proven his diverse skill set after starring in the premier of Helix’s Funny Fridays in the classic talkie-style porno “Undercover Lover”, getting his best asset spanked and abused by studs Connor Maguire and Evan Parker, and showing off his considerable charisma and acting chops in Helix Academy. Now the smooth power bottom marks his return to Helix Studios taking all 9″ of Jacob Dixon in “Peeking Pleasure”.
The big awards shows have also taken notice nominating Chase for Best New Porn Star and Best Sex Scene in Live Show Orgy at the Cybersocket Web Awards (not to mention last year’s Grabby Award nomination for Best Threesome in “Crashing the Twink Party” from Best Twink Film nominee The Big Sneaky Fuckfest).
I can’t tell you how happy I am to have Chase back! The last time we got to hang was shooting Blurred Lines which was ironically: too long ago / I’m still recovering from. You can follow Chase
