a twink by any other name

True to its namesake, the Twink is regarded as the skinny, golden, cream-filled snack cake of the gay world. Perpetually fresh, sugary and delicious, but essentially junk food; empty calories, devoid of nutrition or substance. On one hand: young and thin. On the other: effeminate and vapid. With its full range of positive and negative associations, there is now an open debate on whether the Twink label should be considered a benign designation, or a derogatory slur.

Your first reaction to this controversy might be: Really, Twinks? You’re complaining about being called smooth, supple, and otherwise wrinkle, blemish, and fat-free? Last time I checked, these are all good things. They pretty much invented plastic surgery to make people look like you.

But stereotypes, even seemingly positive ones, can have demeaning implications. You may say with the best of intentions that all Asians are good at math, which has the unintended effect of emphasizing their perceived lack of social and physical prowess. Congratulate all black people on their collective athleticism and ample penises, and you’re reinforcing the old stereotype that they are unthinking, oversexed beasts. When you generalize what people are, you inadvertently imply what they are not.

Matthew Keading

Consider the context of the gay universe, where “straight-acting” is the most celebrated and coveted virtue, and where “queenie” or “fem” is a common deal breaker on Grindr. Along with the sought-after Twink traits, often comes the perception that a Twink is not a real man.

On the other end of the spectrum (or “rainbow” if you prefer), is the Bear. The massive, forested, ball-scratching, beer-guzzling, cheeseburger-devouring classical archetype of what an American male should be. Once you witness 200 of these sweaty, full-bearded, harness-clad “real men” doing what can only be described as queening out to “Like A Virgin” at a bar on Bear Night, it may shift your perspective.

I know Leather Daddies who enjoy posting pictures of adorable kittens on Facebook. I’ve met Scientist Twinks who follow football. Most people will defy our expectations, if we allow them to. If we must (and I suspect we must) continue to subdivide ourselves into these gay spirit animals, let’s agree to do it along the lines of objective, provable facts. Let’s leave behind the assumptions about how manly our labels should make us behave.

Sure, we could launch a ban on using the term Twink, but chances are, it would quickly be replaced with something equivalent or worse. In the end it’s less about controlling the words we use, and more about the attitudes we harbor.

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.

9) Fun-derwear

Made this one up 🙂  Undergarments have always revealed a lot about ourselves and are a great, subtle way to express your personality.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can You Guess That Helix Boy Butt?

Let’s play a round of “Guess That Ass!” Whether you like to rim them, spank them, lick them, grab them, bite them or cuddle up with them a great ass deserves to be appreciated daily, nightly and ever so rightly. While I am also attracted to nice faces (and personalities) in my heart of hearts I’m an Ass Man.

Ass Man: A distinguished gentleman who often picks his dates from the back and can appreciate and prefer the finer things in life…such as a boy’s booty. For me asses are like art. Lots of people have them but there’s a select few that are just near impossible to look away from. Something about them is so mesmerizing that it really makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

You’ve been warned: Dangerous curves ahead! Try recognizing your favorite stars by looking at their bottom line. Can you figure out which butt belongs to: Evan Parker, Jessie Montgomery, Matthew KeadingAndy Taylor, Max Carter, Scotty ClarkeDamon ArcherKyle Ross, Casey TannerJamie Sanders and Peter Cross?
