Helix Studios' gay porn actor Alex Riley is DEAD to me at 22!

Who's had him?

Anyone know what he died of? Nothing serious, I hope!

From the comments, he was truly a saint among men.

Their 'cleaners' have certainly been working overtime lately. This probably makes me sound like a crazy conspiracy theorist, but someone posted a comment on str8upgayporn asking if Alex Riley's death may be in any way related to the recent allegations against Helix, and when I looked at the page again maybe an hour later, the comment had disappeared. A thread we had going about the Helix scandal here on DL got deleted as well, albeit not that quickly.

While it seems far-fetched to me that Riley was *murdered* because of something he knew about Helix, it speakes volumes about the company how aggressively they're trying to shut down any negative comments.

I think something happened there with Jacob and Harley, the twinkzz101 Chaturbate camboys who joined Helix last year. Both were always very thin to start with without a pound to spare, but Jacob in particular was looking dangerously emaciated and seem to disappear for a bit. They seemed to be mainly doing there own thing fucking a rotating cast of Helix boys from their home, but I get the sense they were deeply mired in the culture. I haven’t seen if they’ve commented and I wonder if this boy was one of the ones they cammed with. I think Seth Perterson may live with them and I’ve never been able to establish if they moved to Vegas or close by in Arizona, but they don’t seem to be in Wisconsin anymore.

This reminds me of when a college classmate died in the early 90s. He died of AIDS, but due to steroids and antibiotics, he had a beautiful body until the very end.

All our classmates and fraternity brothers - those who didn't know he was a rising star in ChiChi LaRue's dirty movies - were all hand-wringy "What happened?" Finally somebody outed him in the student newspaper, and people acted like mentioning this guy was gay and making gay pornos was fake news and libeled his legacy. I wrote an op-ed for the paper that they would not publish, arguing that porn is his legacy.

Things got quiet really quickly, and the only ones who seem to be active on SM these days are Garrett Kinsley and Dallas Preston, posting their pics and stories about the fun they are having together in NYC and elsewhere.

As for Eli and Jordan... they may have moved on. Trevor certainly has, now that he's heading to Austin to live (does he have a job cause Austin, despite being a great city, isn't cheap), and no one is talking about Keith anymore. Which, I think, is just fine with Keith.

To me, the Eli/Jordan accusations about Keith didn't have merit and that's why no one is talking about it anymore.

by Anonymousreply 12205/22/2021

This is a morbid thought, but could Alex Riley's death be a blessing in disguise for Keith? Look at it this way... Eli and Jordan quit and accuse Keith of all kinds of abuse. Keith responds with the tale of him being involved in a domestic violence incident. The tweets and interviews and posts and blogs don't stop. Then news of Alex's death hits SM and everyone is focused on remembering the good times with Alex, posting sweet memories of when they met him; even Eli and Jordan get into the action by posting their stories about when they first met Alex, how wonderful he was to them, etc. Jacob, his bf, starts a GoFundMe campaign where he is close to raising the $10,000 that he set out to do. In the meantime, the petition to ask the government to look into Helix Studios dies a slow death with less than 600 signatures on it (at last count). ExposeHelixStudios' two tweets showing Keith prepping drugs (coke, K?) remains at two tweets.

And that's it. Helix goes quiet, ignoring the accusations against Keith. Guys like Garrett and Dallas ignore the controversy altogether and continue their party lives and sharing it with the public. Nothing about the alleged drug abuse, alleged sexual abuse, alleged alcohol abuse. I am guessing Helix's strategy was to shut the fuck up (what have Max and Kyle been up to recently? We don't know cause they have been absent from SM these days, it seems), and let the controversy pass them by.

From the outside looking in, I'd say it is a winning strategy, aided unfortunately by the sudden death of a very young man. Sad all around.

R141 I'm more interested in who this former favorite porn star of yours is/was....

As for the so-called Helix drama... been there/done that it seems. You have a bunch of young barely legal twinks running around Vegas getting drunk and having sex with each other. They are in it for the money and the infamy. Do I think what Eli and Jordan said about Keith is true? I honestly do not know. This is the first time I've ever read anyone accusing Keith of sexual abuse, and no other past model has come forward to corroborate the allegations. Is there drug use going on? Yeah probably there is. Are these guys being served alcohol when they shouldn't be? Yeah. So far, no shocks or surprises there.

Unless Joey or Angel or Cameron or Luke or the myriad of other former Helix models come forward to substantiate what Eli accuses Keith of doing, my thinking is Eli and Jordan were both treated poorly and disrespected, and had had enough, so they quit their job and went public with their complaints. Since this has not become a bigger story, it will disappear (if it hasn't already) until the next round of drama hits the studio.

" Is there drug use going on? Yeah probably there is."

Max Carter and a model who looks a lot like Joey Mills from behind are in pictures snorting Special K off of Tyler Hill's ass cheeks. Joey Mills accused Keith Mills of causing the death of former Helix model Zac Stevens by getting him hooked on Special K (Ketamine) and making him become Keith's drug mule. Also Austin Wilde posted a video of Keith preparing drugs for consumption.

So yeah r145 there's your corroboration of drug use at least. Models and video and photographic evidence of drugs going on. There is no probably involved in this situation at all. It's about as definitive as you can get.

R152 Yes you are right. Thanks for the correction.

R145, it's Skylar Starr who I doubt anyone here has ever heard of. Frankly, I was a bit hesitant to mention his name because he's the opposite of what the average DLer fantasizes about, and I know you bitches can be vicious. By 'how badly he was treated by the industry' I basically just meant that his mental illness and substance abuse issues were taken advantage of in a way that seems predatory to me. But I guess that's pretty much the norm in the adult industry. How much porn would there even be out there without the desperate and mentally unstable?

I said it in another thread and I'll say it again... if the thought of someone being exploited for your entertainment makes you uncomfortable, you should probably stop watching studio porn altogether. If fairly big 'stars' with an army of concerned fans behind them are mistreated by the studios, I don't wanna know what lesser known performers have to endure.

It must have been either suicide or a drug overdose. Why would they keep quiet about the cause of death otherwise. But we're not supposed to speculate, so yeah...

So yes, while it seems Eli has gotten over things as it has calmed down, there is something rotten in Helixville.

R181 When Trevor "thanked" Helix during his acceptance speech of Best Twink, it did occur to me that all the BS that he and the others spewed seemed for naught.

Where is the so-called industry media and why are they not looking into all this?

With Dallas Preston being the latest in a very long line of Helix models to quit, does it not make sense for the media, such as Zach Sire, to investigate the allegations that models such as Eli Bennet and Jordan Lake have made against Helix?

I understand he's a fan and one of their affiliates, but that should not stop him from finding out whether these allegations against Helix are true or false.

I for one was quite surprised to read Dallas' tweet from earlier today.  Does this mean that his boyfriend Garrett Kinsley will be the next one to leave the beleaguered studio?

Doesn't the media have a responsibility a journalists and discover the truth behind these allegations?

Maybe there is really nothing to them.  Maybe Eli and Jordan and Dallas all feel they should be treated as superstars. Maybe they feel they should have received more scenes?  More money per scene?  And when all their requests (or demands) fell on deaf ears, they got mad, threw a temper tantrum, and quit the studio.

Or...  this is all true (we know the drug use is true). And shouldn't those models who want to work with Helix know the truth before they make the decision to work for Keith?

Food for thought, or just ridiculous thinking on my end that Zach is an actual journalist and not a fanboy, who only cares about the number of shares and page views he gets on a daily basis.

R189, adult entertainment in its current form is a toxic industry that preys on the unstable, the desperate, the pathologically naive. In a world where mental illness and drug abuse are rampant, where certain studios brazenly release hardscore scenes featuring severely intoxicated actors, and were someone seems to commit suicide every other week, do you really expect people to get outraged about those allegations against Helix and start an investigation?

Don't get me wrong - I absolutely agree that young people who go down that path should be treated fairly, that they need better protection from both exploitation and 'the pitfalls of fame', and that studios who mistreat performers should suffer consequences. I just don't think Helix should be singled out as '.the rotten apple'.

It was no where near as good as the original Helix Academy and does not hold a light to the previous Helix winner in this category, Vegas Nights.

Surprising that the only [former] Helix model to win last night was Trevor Harris (I'm not counting Joey or Angel or Blake as they left a few years ago).

The win can't cover the stench of all these [new] guys leaving and all for the same reasons.

R215, circa 3 weeks ago, Eli Bennet and Jordan Lake announced their departure from Helix with lengthy tweets describing how they were being mistreated by the studio (I don't remember any details tbh). A few other ex Helix performers including Joey Mills chimed in with their own allegations of exploitation and abuse. Someone (Trevor Harris?) claimed Max Carter tried to break into his apartment, and the owner of the studio was more or less accused of causing the death of former performer Zac Stevens by getting him hooked on ketamine (Stevens committed suicide by jumping off a roof back in 2015).

by Anonymousreply 22006/02/2021

R215 And to add what R217 posted, everything has calmed down. No one is tweeting about these allegations anymore. Helix has gone silent, pretty much, on their end. Dallas Preston tweeted his departure from Helix and that a video was going to be released soon, but then deleted the tweet. In the meantime, Jordan Lake signs with NDS (same studio as where Trevor Harris signed with after Helix. And Trevor is moving to Austin I think and is now friends, again, with his ex Kane Fox).

As someone wrote before, this was a tempest in a tea cup. The petition has ground to a halt (less than 650 signatures), there have been no follow-ups from Eli or Jordan, and despite Helix releasing Alex Riley's scene (maybe his last?), which was in poor taste coming so soon after his death, nothing seems to have changed.

I fully expect more guys leaving Helix, complaining they were mistreated blah blah blah. Par for the course for this company I suppose.
