Review date: November 2018

Helix Studios has created a fun and sexy headquarters for hundreds of hot American twinks and college men starring in over 2245 Helix scenes to stream and download -- plus over 900 bonus scenes from other studios. The video quality is nothing short of stunning, with over 40% available in 1080p or 720p HD, capturing condom and non-condom scenes with amazing clarity.

Tour

The Helix Studios tour gives you some sugar right off the bat, with free clips for the most recent videos. As you travel down the homepage to Bonus Scenes and Top Rated Videos, or browse the video and model indexes, there are fewer freebies and more links to the sign-up page, but you do get a very good idea of what's inside.

The site claims over 3500 videos, though we counted only 3160; about two-thirds of these are from Helix; the remainder are scenes from other studios. Also there's a pre-checked upsell on the sign-up page.

Usability

Navigation through this well-organized site is really easy and intuitive: go to "Videos" and browse the entire index, or choose scenes from eleven studios. You can also search through "Photos" and "Models" easily.

There are a lot of up-sells on the Helix Studios site. Clicking on "Movies" will take you to another site where you can purchase full DVDs. And "Live Cams" also links to a cam site, which is not included in your membership.

The Men and the Action

All of the guys here are a particular type: smooth and slender, aged 18-24, cute faces, and instantly ready to use their big cocks and willing butt holes. You'll find them in recent exclusive web videos, alongside scenes from the entire Helix Studios catalog and ten other producers.

The Helix Studios videos are the most polished and entertaining on the site. You'll find solo, duo and group action in a variety of indoor settings, and outdoors around the pool or hot tub, in the forest, or someone's back yard. Sometimes there's a dramatic story line to draw you into the action. Common scenarios include solo jerking off, sucking, fucking, rimming, facials, spanking, a few toys, and double penetration. Many of the scenes are bareback.

Video Details

The viewing quality of the videos is mostly excellent. At the same time, remember that this collection of videos has been shot over a number of years so there's bound to be some variation in camera work, light conditions and overall quality. When it comes to close-up shots, poses, camera angles and sound quality, the Helix team are experts and of course the camera loves all that smooth skin, the golden tans, those cute faces and twink cocks.

In total, you'll find more than 3160 video scenes, averaging 15 minutes each in length; 2245 of them are Helix exclusives. The site is now updating once every three days with a new exclusive Helix video.

Here's the inventory of videos from several different producers that you'll have access to with your membership:

Helix Studios: 2244 videos
Spank This: 578 videos
Boy Crush: 123 videos
Bareback Boy Bangers: 70 videos
Latin Studs: 47 videos
Raw Lads: 45 videos
PZP Studios: 30 videos

There are also 10 or fewer streaming videos from each of Dominic Ford, French Twinks, Puppy Productions, and Himeros.

Most video is available to stream or download in MP4 (or M4V) format. You can stream the videos in-browser in a choice of qualities; the largest are usually 960x540 pixels.

You can download Helix Studios videos in two or three quality choices. (Video from studios other than Helix remain streaming only.) Those added since late 2013 (about 40% of the total) are ultra HD with a top size of 1920x1080 pixels and bitrates around 5,000 kbps. And another 15% (published since January, 2012) are 1280x720 pixels, 3,700 kbps. Older videos top out at 960x540 (or 640x480) pixels with bitrates of up to 1800 kbps (though some of these are labelled 720p.)

Screens: There is a mobile version of the site included with your subscription and the videos will stream on an iPhone or iPad. If you happen to have a Roku box, Helix has a channel for streaming to your TV. Apple TV or other media box owners can stream to their TV either direct from their mobile device, or after downloading.

Image and Other Content

Each video is accompanied by an image set. The more recent of these are large, high quality digital photos, about 45 to a set. Also there are high quality digital image galleries accompanying some of the model profiles. Older image sets are average-quality video captures. All image sets can be downloaded as a zip file.

As mentioned, there are 900 bonus streaming videos from several studios, but as of 2018 only Spank This videos are being added as bonus material; all other updates are original Helix scenes.

Summing Up

If you are looking for a top-tier collection of American twinks and college men, Helix Studios should be your number one choice, bar none.
