Hot Girls Wanted


Hot Girls Wanted is a 2015 American pornography directed by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus. The film follows the lives of several 18- and 19-year-old pornographic actresses. The film premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was released on Netflix on May 29, 2015.

Synopsis

Several 18- to 25-year-old young women are interviewed about their experiences as pornography performers. Several women, including Rachel Bernard (from Illinois) and Tressa Silguero (from Texas) are recruited by a 23-year-old pro-amateur porn agent Riley Reynolds to live in his North Miami Beach home. [2] Reynolds’s agency is called Hussie Models. [3] Silguero, 19, leaves the business. [4]

Production

The film was originally conceived as an exploration of the consumption of pornography on college campuses. The filmmakers abandoned this idea when they discovered that they were mostly watching pornographic videos starring young women. Curious about why a large number of young women were entering the industry, the film was reoriented to tell their story. [5] Further edits took place after the Sundance premiere to address the filmmakers identified during screenings. Following discussions with the public on Twitter, some of the film’s statements were also clarified. [6]
