||HelixStudios offers a huge variety of content for twink, college guy and spanking lovers. Most models stay with Helix and have a high number of videos available, still, the model mixture is very good and you don't get annoyed by models easily. The model quality standard is very high and they seem to enjoy their work. Live shows give you the possibility to get to know your favourite models better and request your wishes.
Videos are H.264 at 3 different quality options for most scenes. Files work on iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox360, PS3, PSP and are optimized for streaming to your DLNA-device, too. Older HD-scenes are 960x540, newer scenes are 720P (1280x720). The production standard is very high for an amateur site, especially the latest scenes look very professional. Most scenes offer a photo set as zip-download.
Navigation is very well done, you can browse by video, movie, model, then it's split into their sites 8Teenboy (twinks), HotStuds (bareback), Fratboy (college guys), SpankThis (spanking), LatinStuds (latin men) [NOT UPDATED RECENTLY], rawlads (euro boys bareback) [NOT UPDATED RECENTLY].
Scenes can be filtered by type (movie, behind the scenes, live show) and theme (like double penetration, facial, group sex, toys, etc.). There is a search field on top of every page, too, so you can easily type in, what you want to see.
The site offers two different options to join, one is streaming only for $19,95, the other is streaming and download for $29,95. The price of $29,95 is absolutely fair as initial charge giving the huge amount of content the site has to offer, but is quite alot as rebill for about 20 scenes offered per month, especially if you are not into all their niches (spanking for example).
