‘Hot Girls Wanted’ Gives Unattractive Look Inside Amateur Adult Film Industry

Hot Girls Wanted has hit the web and the Netflix documentary, directed by Rashida Jones, takes a look at the amateur porn world in a frank and engaging way and it’s safe to say, one that has never been done before. Perhaps the original take on the subject matter is accomplished because Jones is at the helm. Perhaps the film is the way it is simply because there are so many young women entering this world. It’s not as hard as it used to be to find someone willing to talk about it.

For those who are still trying to weigh whether or not to watch Hot Girls Wanted, there is a trailer that shows what they can expect. This isn’t a movie that is going to show women claiming they love the life they’ve chosen, even though they’re in a job some people look down on. This particular documentary shows girls who thought they were just going to be having a little fun and then suddenly realize it isn’t all that fun. The real question that the movie attempts to answer is why these girls stay in the industry long after they realize it’s not actually that fun.

As The Wrap reports, “Every day, a new girl turns 18,” talent agent Riley said in the trailer for Hot Girls Wanted. The “talent” Riley scouts are 18-to-21-year-old “teenyboppers,” whom he introduces to the amateur porn industry. The movie shows exactly how people like Riley get the talent to come to them. Craigslist ads are the name of the game and are geared towards desperate girls who are looking for a quick bunch of money. Hot Girls Wanted also shows that this kind of sub genre is, in some ways, not nearly as dark as people might expect.

At least when it comes to Hot Girls Wanted, there isn’t anything as horrible as human trafficking going on. At least at first, these girls are going in with their eyes wide open. That doesn’t mean they knew exactly what they were getting into. This is the sad fact of the documentary in that these girls are going into the industry thinking one thing and finding out something else entirely.

This film is geared towards making sure that people see the dark side of the industry while also giving people a look at the industry as a whole. By going this route, Rashida Jones and her crew are hoping to avoid being too preachy or seen as even as something glorifies the industry. Hot Girls Wanted is now available on Netflix.
