Last Sunday, I had the rare opportunity to do something I had always wanted to do: take a role in a gay porn movie. I mean, it seemed strange that after writing about the gay adult entertainment industry for eight years on Men of Color Blog, I had never pursued, let alone asked, to take a small, non-sexual role.
But about a year and half ago, I met Alex Roman at a Helix Studios spank party downtown and after talking to this impossibly charming young man, we talked about having me play a role one day in an upcoming feature.
So when Alex texted me a few weeks ago and invited me to join him and his crew for an upcoming production, I didn’t blink.
The film is called Helix Academy and I play the cruel Father Glenn opposite six young men who most, if not all of you reading this, are familiar with: Anderson Lovell, Casey Tanner, Jessie Montgomery, Evan Parker, Luke Allen, and Chase Young.
On this particular day, we were filming the classroom scenes and when I arrived at the studio, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Casey, Alex’s better half and production equal, greeted me and I was lead into the studio where Anderson (who I kept calling Alexander much to his probable annoyance), a shy, lovely young man from Spain was already seated. Anderson who, despite being the one who laughed least at my antics, seemed in many ways the most mature. He didn’t appear goofy or mercurial, as many of the other actors did – and I mean that in a good way – but, rather, reserved and kind, always observing his surroundings rather than remarking on them.
Moments later, a buzz of energy could be heard and the rest of the cast showed up and with it a bubble of electricity that never waned throughout what I would learn is a very long day shooting gay porn. I eventually grouped the six guys in order of the voltage of their personalities. Luke, an easy, hail-fellow-well-met sort of personality and Anderson laid low throughout much of the day. Jessie, a beautiful blonde boy with an easy, infectious laugh from Nebraska whose publicity pictures, I’m afraid to say, don’t do him nearly the justice he warrants, and Evan, a sweet, guy-next-door type from Ohio played a much larger role in the day’s tomfoolery. And then there were Chase and Casey. Chase, from Alabama, could have been straight out of central casting for a Leave It To Beaver-type show. He is self-assured, talkative, and very friendly. And then there is Casey Tanner. A buck thirty worth of personality that voraciously overpowers the room in which he is in. He is absolutely full of himself (a façade, I’m guessing) but also absolutely one of the most entertaining people to be around. He’s very, very clever and has a sense of irony rarely found among someone so young (or in his generation, for that matter).
I won’t lie. The day was long and by the end of it, my Prima Donna side was starting to seep through – Imagine! – but what kept me endlessly fascinated and sustained me even when, at about 5:30P, Alex and Casey announced they we still had about four more hours to go, was watching Alex work.
I, on the other hand, had a blast. A ready and willing audience appreciative of my snarky humor? Six beautiful actors? A beautiful sound man named Kurt Summers? All under the direction of Alex Roman? I may have played the part of cruel priestly schoolmaster but it sure did seem like I died and went to heaven.
Mood lighting can transform any room into a sex palace! Environmental cues arouse the sex drive and contribute to an erotic ambiance perfect for those memorable nights of good fucking. Helix Studios uses distinct lighting textures for each film to create that perfect intimate moment for both the models and audience. Lighting in yesterday’s Helix Academy Teaser Trailer expresses the more dark and devious side of Helix Studios’ visual style while maintaining that live-event, all-angles eroticism Helix is known for:
Helix Insider Tip: to create the provocative effect Helix Studios uses to get the boys horny and intimate use low, indirect mood lighting that accents your lovers’ features. Ask yourself what visual story you’re trying to tell: Do you want a comforting room with soft warm lights or are you trying to cultivate a passionate and energetic setting with bright and fiery illumination? A little music always helps the sexy mood too!
The Helix Insider was on set for Helix Academy to bring you exclusive Behind the Scenes action from Helix Studios’ newest film featuring an A+ twink role call including Casey Tanner, Luke Allen, Jessie Montgomery, Evan Parker, Chase Young, and Anderson Lovell. The boys are at their teenage high school horniest and with so many big dick studs on campus it didn’t take long for the schoolboys to ditch class and chase down their secret crush. There was plenty of flirty fun off-set, with even the production team getting in on the extracurricular action!
Jordan Thomas flips out when he see’s the beach for the first time… well not really flips out, but he does tumble quite well. Watch this hottie impress us with his gymnastic skills. This sexy gay boy has talent!
When Connor Kline and Casey Tanner applied to Helix Studios as a couple we knew we had to move quick. This porn power couple spurts over with sexual energy that is playful and fresh. We knew that Casey and Connor would be a wonderful addition to the Helix Studios model list, but we had no idea the two would have so much great energy that we just adore around here.
So what happens when you combine a new porn power couple with 2012′s hottie couple Max Carter and Kyle Ross? We’ll tell you – all that hotness gets balled into one big giant mix of power tops and bottoms wanting to explore and share sexual fantasies without perturbation. These four had the pleasure of filming with one another this past week and from what our crew has told us, Helixacholics are going to be jizzing themselves before they even get their lube ready.
Yes Helixacholics, 2013 is going to be full of hot, uninhibited sex with some of the hottest men and boys in the business. The question is, are you ready for this explosion of yumminess? We are!
Chase Young and Jessie Montgomery got down and dirty (literally) during their outdoor sex scene today. What do you think fans, would you fuck outdoors with these two?
