Asher Haynes Quits Helix


Dear Friends,

I would like to begin by expressing my heartfelt appreciation to all of you who have supported me and enjoyed my work in the adult entertainment industry. Your support has been invaluable, not only covering my essential living expenses but also enabling me to enjoy life's experiences.

However, today I am confronted with a difficult revelation about the studio where I've spent three years of my adult life. This is not an easy message to convey, but I find it crucial to do so: I have severed all ties with Helix Studios and distanced myself completely from anyone associated with them. Based on my personal experiences and observations, I am firmly convinced that this studio exploits vulnerable youth.

Recently, I received troubling information from a reliable source. I learned about alleged inappropriate interactions with minors that have occurred over the years, including grooming, coercion, and instances of date rape. I've also become increasingly uncomfortable with the circumstances surrounding the untimely deaths of some models during or after their affiliation with Helix.

In my view, Helix Studios has treated models as commodities, using them as resources and sources of income for their own benefit. Based on my own observations, I believe that Keith Miller, with the help of his staff, would give a nod of approval to those who offered substantial sums of money. These individuals were then permitted to manipulate and deceive models into meeting them, traveling to their locations, and subjecting them to unimaginable abuses.

Several years ago, I was threatened by a powerful man with considerable influence, connections, and wealth. I was warned that I might end up like Alex Riley if I didn't acquiesce to his demands. When I reported this to Keith Miller, the owner of Helix Studios, he reassured me that he had no connection with this man. Later, the same individual who threatened me showed me a conversation he'd had with Miller. The discussion was deeply unsettling. As I interpreted it, the models were spoken about in a predatory manner, which gave me the impression of discussions about sex trafficking.

The dialogue classified me, and every other model, into categories that made us feel disposable. Those of us who could not further involve ourselves in exchange for the coverage and income the studio offered for compliance were implicitly threatened. I firmly believe that the only reason I escaped harm was due to my standing within the studio, which afforded me more privileges than almost any other model, and my connections with influential people outside the adult entertainment industry.

I contend that many individuals, both male and female, lose their lives in this industry, and the contributing factors to their demise often go unnoticed. My hope is that this message will reach younger audiences contemplating a similar career path, so they might make a more informed decision.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Is he accusing Keith Miller of murdering old models?

I think it's safe to say that Helix is part twink porn studio and part brothel. I won't comment on grooming and the underage allegations, because I don't know, but I think we all know who these guys are being offered up to and passed around to - that is until someone newer and younger comes along to replace them.

I miss the old days when Twitter had a 140 character count limit. I could live with it when they upped it to 280.

But, Twitter is NOT the church doors upon which one should publish Die 95 Thesen.

They are young so I accept all the drama added to a nasty job situation. He writes with more skill than the emotional and social wisdom he displayed getting wrapped up with such shady characters. Maybe he will wise up and aim for a good occupation.

Every so often a disgruntled Helix model peddles the same stories that have been claimed by others in the past. It makes sense, since it will sound more believable if they reuse the stories others have used before. We’ll never know if it’s true or not.

Here we go again, as R12 has said in their post. First, a porn model is thanking his fans for keeping him in a lifestyle he has come to enjoy. Thanks for the money folks!

Now, after three years of filming for Helix, Asher decided to come clean about what he has seen and experienced… Helix Studios exploits vulnerable youth. Yup, we’ve heard this before but please Asher, do continue…

What exactly did you observe? And what troubling information did you receive? And who is the reliable source? Ooh, very intriguing! I hate to break it to you Asher, but if any model that is/was hired by Helix is under 18, they would be in serious trouble.

But if this is not what you are referring to, and instead are referring to an offshoot by people who own and work for Helix, then let’s discuss. You mention inappropriate interactions with minors (à la Brent Corrigan I’m guessing) over the years, that result in grooming, coercion and date rape. Serious allegations indeed.

So the studio is a front for a sex trafficking pedophile ring, operated by Keith Miller and his minions (I’m thinking Alex and Casey) and you came about this information from a reliable source who confirmed what you have seen/observed over your three years with the studio. Do I have that right?

Oh, and you are also alleging that the studio is somehow responsible for the deaths of Alex Riley, Casey Tanner and Kyle Ross? What circumstances surrounding their deaths are you uncomfortable with to be exact? That they died? How they died?

Alex Riley died of a drug overdose in LA where he was at a party and ingested shit he shouldn’t have. Casey Tanner had been ill for over a year (well past the point of his being employed by Helix), and Kyle was involved in a very sad car accident in Florida; Kyle liked his fast cars and sadly was not in the best state of mind when the accident occurred thanks in large part to American Airlines fucking him over. Yes, untimely since they were all too young to pass, but how exactly are these deaths related to Helix? Are you suggesting Keith is somehow involved in getting Alex to OD, getting Casey sick with whatever he died of, and causing Kyle’s accident in a state across the country by working with the airlines to deny Kyle boarding so he would die the next day in a car accident?

Haven’t we heard this all before from the likes of Cameron Parks, Trevor Harris (who is my view is the worst of the former models - I true fucking asshole off-camera with a huge ego and an attitude that is quite ugly), not to mention Joey Mills and Angel Rivera, cause Joey wanted Angel to be paid what they were paying Joey, Helix said no, Joey threw a temper tantrum and ruined the book tour and then decided to fuck off from the company, dragging Angel with him.

Or what about those former performers who tweeted their support of Asher? Like Harley Xavier, who dumped boyfriend Jacob Acosta and hooked up with another former model, Luca Ambrose? Where’s the tea Harley? Spill it! Or Kurt Summers, one of the originals who was best friends with guys like Max Carter and Kyle Ross, who would hang out with them (and the other Helix models and staff) every Tuesday night in San Diego at Babycakes, who frequented Max and Kyle’s SD apartment whenever he wanted, he even filmed in puppy gear for Max’s OF channel. He’s now tweeting that he himself has stories but is too afraid to say anything? How’s trailer park living these days Kurt?

Does Helix treat models as commodities? I can see that. I can see them ranking the models in terms of who can be their best revenue generators. I think a great example of this is Silas Brooks, who is protected by big brothers Alex and Casey, allowed to do what he wants with whomever he wants, hanging out with his non-porn friends/groupies at the Helix house (owned by Casey and Alex).

But to say Asher believes Keith is running some sort of escort ring, with Keith giving tacit approval with a slight nod of his head, to those who offered the most money? Meh… not so sure about that. And to say these rich gentlemen would then deceive the models into meeting them, getting them to travel to their locations and subject them to unimaginable abuses? Call the authorities if you are put in this situation! And don’t try and explain it away by telling me these guys are young and stupid and aren’t mature enough to do the right thing or say no or whatever. These guys, no matter their age, are a lot more aware of their situations than most these days. Being young and gay is not taboo like it used to be, and those with big dicks or nice asses know exactly what they are worth and are willing to do whatever they need to do to get out of their bumfuck middle America conservative town.

“Several years ago, I was threatened by a powerful man with considerable influence, connections, and wealth.” Um, ok… then why stay with Helix for three years if you were threatened several years ago by someone (and by several years, do you mean more than three?). Who is this powerful man? Oooh, is it Bryan Singer??? We all know he likes his twinks young and fresh! Or maybe David Geffen?

“As I interpreted it, the models were spoken about in a predatory manner, which gave me the impression of discussions about sex trafficking.” Where’s the proof Asher? This is simply your imagination run amok!

“I firmly believe that the only reason I escaped harm was due to my standing within the studio, which afforded me more privileges than almost any other model, and my connections with influential people outside the adult entertainment industry.” Again, you’re speaking in circles here… you stayed for three years and in those three years gained enough credibility and popularity (translation: revenue generator) to keep being employed and escape some sort of harm. Why did you stay for three years (hell, why stay at all) if you were immediately threatened by some guy when you first started? Cause he was powerful? Cause he blackmailed you? Threatened you? If he threatened to kill you, why not go to the authorities? Were you afraid they wouldn’t believe you cause you are gay? Did you record any conversations with this guy as proof? Cause everyone has a cellphone these days and we record everything and anything… a woman yelling at a Taco Bell employee via the car order lane… some asshat walking through Wal-Mart destroying pride displays (quite an awesome country we live in!). Why didn’t you record anything?

I must also ask… are you going to quit the industry or just have crap to say about the company that first employed you and trained you to be the performer that you are today?

I should also suggest that when you make allegations, no matter how veil and libelous, that anything is responsible for the death of someone else, you had better back this up with proof. By saying “I feel it” or “this is what I think” or “I heard it from others” makes you a sheep, a follower who will do and say anything that everyone else around you is saying, without proof, without evidence. Just because you got pissed that some guy came onto you and thought that because you work in porn, you’d fuck him, and when you said no, he got pissed off or complained and you got upset. Yeah, we’ve heard it before. Just because you are in porn doesn’t mean you will fuck everyone. I agree with that statement for what it’s worth.

Good luck to you Asher. You now join the ranks of those former Helix models who, because they got upset over money or not being treated like a prima donna or not liking how their boyfriend is being paid or coddled by management, have nothing but shit to say about a company that gave each of you your start.

If you have nothing nice to say, just shut the fuck up.

It would be a welcome relief from the former Helix models and drama queens who have an axe to grind over some petty grievance with the studio.

Nothing more from Asher, nor from Harley nor Kurt, to substantiate anything Asher claims. I wonder if timing with EDC Vegas has anything to do with Asher's "confession"?
