Kyle Ross and Max Carter were one of the longest-running gay porn power couples—together for six years and even engaged to be married—when they surprised everyone last year by calling quits to their relationship with a tweet.

The Twitter world was all aghast, but Max quickly posted to fans his assurances that, “It’s going to be OK. Everything will work itself out, and life will go on.”

And somehow, it has. Ross and Carter continue to have jobs in production and behind the scenes at Helix, and have been able to maintain a healthy relationship as coworkers. They may not be the first couple of Helix Studios anymore, but they are still the leading men of the popular adult studio. We spoke to both from Helix Studios’ Vegas headquarters.

INTERVIEW > > > >

How did you become one of the leading men of Helix?
Kyle Ross: I brought in a new era of hardcore twink porn to Helix, and years later, my first scenes are still listed on the top-rated page. Shooting a porn film can be nerve-racking! Every inch of your body is captured and will be played over and over again by hundreds of thousands of viewers. It’s important to prepare and get it right the first time. I figure that showing up clean and pretty is 80% of the battle, and after all that work, I might as well give the performance everything I’ve got. From my videos, one would think I love eating cum and getting facials, but I only do it for the camera.

What has been your most memorable scene?
Kyle Ross: The most memorable is from the 2018 summer blockbuster, “Vegas Nights.” That movie had a 70-page script. It was very hard work, and we spent over 12 hours each day on set filming. The producers bought a stretch limo for that film that we still use to cruise around Vegas in, partying on the Strip. The orgy scene won a 2019 Grabby’s award, and I’m very proud to have been a part of it.

What would you name as your favorite scene to shoot?
Kyle Ross: “Kyle’s Anal Application.” The storyline was about me trying to rent an apartment in San Diego that already had multiple applications turned in. So what is a cute li’l twink to do? Anything! I get fucked by the Realtor so he’ll accept my application over the others. That scene was my favorite, because my partner, Hayden Clark, was a real-life “straight guy.” I’m really not into the polished twink types. I’m gay because I love sexy, rugged men. Nothing beats a manly “straight” guy who wants to pound some smooth twink hole. His beer can cock was so nice and thick. It looked like I was being split in half! I always prefer the huge dick scenes. Somehow, they’re easier!

What was your most difficult scene to shoot?
Kyle Ross: For me, the most difficult scenes to shoot are those with other twink models. Luckily, Helix Studios has pivoted from a “twink site” to jock after we launched 8teenboy.com, our little brother site.

When was the last time you had to shoot a film but really didn’t want to?
Kyle Ross: I will not film unless I’m genuinely into my scene partner. Further, if I’m feeling sick or jetlagged, then we usually postpone the scene. I perform only when conditions are ideal, and luckily, being local with the studio, I can enjoy that luxury without screwing up the schedule too much.

What’s your advice to the new guys launching their careers at Helix?
Kyle Ross: Hang in there, and don’t lose your head. Helix Studios is a wonderful platform for young, aspiring porn stars to live their dream. Sometimes models will start getting a ton of followers on Twitter and then think they’re bigger than the studio itself. I’ve seen big-headed models get upset about whatever ridiculous thing and then publicly post that they quit and start soliciting other studios. Most of them fall off the face of the earth, unfortunately. Everyone goes through tough times, and the best thing to do when not feeling well is to keep it quiet on Twitter and don’t burn bridges.

Who is the new Helix guy that you would name “One to Look Out For”?
Kyle Ross: Travis Stevens. He started with us years ago as a skinny twink, and I didn’t look at him twice. He had a temporary hiatus, and years later, he’s back and he’s buff! He looks amazing, and I’ve been crushing hard. Keep an eye out for his new scenes. I’ve requested to film with him already.

Where do you see your adult career going from here?
Kyle Ross: I’ve been working for Helix Studios for nearly eight years now. Initially, I started as a model, and then I worked my way into the office. I now serve as HR and operations manager. I do the bookkeeping, taxes and payroll. It has turned out to be a great career with Helix, and I see myself here for much longer. In the near future, I’ll be working to produce a new website, which we are all very excited to launch!

How would you describe the current state of adult film?
Kyle Ross: It’s extremely hard to stay in business these days with piracy running rampant. Tube sites offer huge variety for free. To overcome this disadvantage, we’re working to connect our stars safely to their fans to build more personal relationships. This live experience cannot be pirated and is the future of our industry.

Which best describes Kyle Ross: proud or kinky?
Kyle Ross: I’d describe myself as more proud than kinky, simply because I’m much more drawn to measurable accomplishments than getting tied up and taking huge dildos. Not gonna lie, I do love taking Bojack, my big horse dildo, at home. Due to my online exploits, many don’t realize that I am actually a very private person. I do love doing kinky things, but everything you see on camera is a performance and for the fans. I am less [of] an exhibitionist than one may perceive from my videos.

How did you become one of the leading men of Helix?
Max Carter: I’d say it’s due to consistency in the industry. I have been filming scenes for eight years now, without any years off, and have always tried my best to make each performance better than my last.

What has been your most memorable scene?
Max Carter: My most memorable scene was with Liam Riley. It was called “Body Language.” It was beautifully produced and filmed. Liam and I put a lot of time and energy into making it a one-of-a-kind production.

What would you name as your favorite scene to shoot?
Max Carter: “Lifeguards” with Sean Ford. I really enjoyed it, because I have a fetish for outdoor sex, and this scene was basically shot straight through at Blacks Beach in San Diego.

What was your most difficult scene to shoot?
Max Carter: My scene with Joey Mills. As much as I think Joey is a cutie, we shot outdoors, and it started out great, but then the weather took a turn and it became a bit too cold. We had to take it back to the bedroom to finish.

When was the last time you had to shoot a film but really didn’t want to?
Max Carter: I only film scenes when I’m feeling well and am into the other model.

What’s your advice to the new guys launching their careers at Helix?
Max Carter: Always be consistent! The moment you step out of the spotlight, fans will be on to the next guy!

Who is the new Helix guy that you would name “One to Look Out For”?
Max Carter: Jacob Hanson. I just filmed with him the other day, and it was fire! He’s a great performer.

Where do you see your adult career going from here?
Max Carter: I am currently the sole director/producer for 8teenboy.com, and I will continue to do that and help it grow to its fullest potential.

How would you describe the current state of adult film?
Max Carter: The current state of the industry is a bit crazy. The truths are coming out about how certain studios operate and who is actually the top studio to work for!

Which best describes you: proud or kinky?
Max Carter: “Proud,” because I really enjoy the work I get to be a part of and all the guys I get to meet and hang out with on a daily [basis]. I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else right now, but who knows what the future brings!
