Hot Girls Wanted (2015) is a documentary about young women who work in the adult film industry. It features Stella May, Lucy Tyler, Ava Taylor and Jade, the last of whom does not use a surname. They are all brand new performers in adult movies. Managed by Riley Reynolds of Hussie Models, they go on shoots, shop, club or hang out in rented rooms at Reynolds’ home in Miami. One young woman visits her family back in Texas and ultimately drops out of the films. Another explains the bottom-line: “Are you kidding me? I made $900 in five hours. I’m going to go home and make $8.25 an hour? No. No, no, no, no.” In pursuit of that, some of the young women decide to appear in abusive videos. Hot Girls Wanted was directed by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus and was written by Brittany Huckabee. Among others, Rashida Jones produced.
Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On (2017) is a spin-off miniseries exploring further aspects of the adult film industry.
Hot Girls Wanted is a fascinating look behind the scenes of adult movies. Instead of the fantasies that show up onscreen, the realities of these young women are depicted. They are hopeful, bored, innocent. More than anything, they are normal young women struggling to become adults. Highly recommended.
