HOT GIRLS WANTED Internet Porn and the Girl Next Door



The disturbing world of amateur pornography has been laid bare by a new documentary called 'Hot Girls Wanted,' which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday.

The insightful look at the world of pornography shows just how easy it is for teenagers, in particular, to get caught up in a sex trade that promises big bucks and fame.
But in a revealing peek into the billion dollar industry, documentary filmmakers exposed how professionally produced films are being made to look like home movies.
During the film, Riley, a 23-year-old 'agent' hosts half a dozen young women eager to enter the industry at his Miami home.
He says casually: 'Every day, another girl turns 18.'
But the brutal world of pornography only gives girls aged 18- to 21 a career span that typically lasts just three months, due to high turnover.
Tressa, an 18-year-old girl featured in the film, admits she was attracted to porn as a way to escape her Texas hometown. 
She said she earned $25,000 in her four months in the industry, but after paying for lingerie, manicures, makeup and biweekly STD tests, she only had about $2,000 in her bank account when she quit the business.
'It's easy to take advantage of an 18-year-old girl,' she said. 
However, for some teenagers, the allure proves just too much, and many, who have grown up in the age of the Internet don't have many hang-ups about becoming adult stars.  
Worryingly, many appear to think that there is nothing wrong with being shot on film and have the attitude 'Why not get paid? We're doing it anyway.'
And as pop (porn) culture has become more and more sexualized, it can even be seen as a badge of honor to partake in the sex industry
According to online porn sites, 'teen' is the most searched term in online pornography, and thousands of young people enter the amateur porn industry every day. 
The filmmakers said that according to current laws, it's legal for anyone with a camera who calls himself a porn producer to solicit sex
The woman is technically being paid for her 'performance,' not the sex act. 

XXX...'Hot Girls Wanted': Film shows how teenage girls are increasingly being lured into the world of amateur pornography 25 January 2015


Hot Girls Wanted” tells the true stories of a group of those girls, mostly naive small-town kids enticed by the promise of money and fame in the bright lights of Florida or California.

The reality is, of course, far less rosy: they typically last less than six months in the game, before either their parents find out, or the industry tires of them, constantly seeking fresh meat.

It’s the Wild West,” director Jill Bauer told AFP after the movie was screened at the independent film showcase festival in the Utah mountain resort of Park City.

Anyone can make a video. Any producer can go online and recruit a girl on craigslist. You just need to prove that you’re 18 years old, but anybody can do it and its art, protected by the First Amendment, freedom of speech.”

Bauer, a former Miami Herald journalist, already made a film on a similar theme: “Sexy Baby” (2012) used a 12-year-old girl’s story to explore the growing sexualization of youth and popular culture via social media.

At first, she and co-director Ronna Gradus had planned their new film to focus on boys on college campuses who consume porn online — coincidentally, the exact subject of another film at Sundance, “The Hunting Ground”.

But as soon as they began investigating what those young men were watching, Bauer and Gradus discovered the world of girls just out of high school lining up to make money by having sex in videos posted on porn websites.

“We thought, this can’t be true, because if this was true it would have been reported before. So we really couldn’t believe it,” said Gradus, who previously worked with Bauer as a photographer at The Miami Herald.

The girls involved are typically working minimum wage jobs straight out of high school and see adverts like “Hot Girls Wanted” on craigslist.com as “a ticket to freedom, adventure and their dream of instant fame.”

“This really is a perfect storm … for these girls you take, say, 18-year-old, impulsive, and you mix it with (instant online) access and no decent sex education,” she said.

Bauer and Gradus hope the film will trigger a debate about possible changes in the law — either in labor laws, where appropriate, or possibly through forcing porn producers to get licenses with strict rules.

The film is punctuated with startling onscreen facts about this type of porn — including that the websites involved garner an average of 41 million hits a month, more than many mainstream websites including CNN and Disney.com
