Hot Girls Wanted , the newish documentary produced by actress Rashida Jones, is making headlines and earning some rave reviews—as well as getting panned by people in the adult industry and advocates for sex workers—for its depiction of one tiny sliver of the wide world of porn, a fly-by-night talent agency called Hussie Models, which operates out of a scuzzy little house in Florida. The idea that young women are being lured into the Big City only to have their virtue wrecked is a very old story, going back to the 19th century social purity movement and the Christian reformers who set up weekly soapboxes outside houses of prostitution. In Hot Girls Wanted, the general notion that porn irreparably or at least very seriously taints women is paired, a little shakily, with shots of writhing pop stars like Miley Cyrus. Its goal is somehow clear and vague simultaneously: Hot Girls Wanted is aiming to convey something about our sexually-saturated, erotically schizophrenic culture—but that something never resolves to anything much at all. If amateur porn was, in fact, lying in wait within the recesses of the Internet to snatch very young women away from loving homes to plunge them deep into highly visible sexual slavery en masse, Hot Girls Wanted would highlight a trend of sexual corruption that no civil society should put up with.

Contracts with licensed agents compel an artist to work though that agency for the term of the contract, but do not compel an artist to work,. In the emails Bernard showed us, Hay takes on a scolding tone:. It really makes no sense and has put you far behind where you could be in the business by now. I have saved my money to buy myself out. How can I be held to a contract in an industry that I am not even in anymore? I could not say if she wishes to pursue a career in photography now, I have no knowledge of this,.

Nor does it touch on the shaming of sex workers and porn actresses, which Kernes says in his experience can be far more toxic than having sex on camera. People do that. Most of the stories we heard about our characters being scared or shooting till their throats unexpectedly bled which we heard from a couple pro-am young women not in the film occurred when they were shooting one on one. That would be a good start. In the end, Kernes says, the general consensus in the adult industry is that the film hits on some truths about lower-end porn, while at the same time leaving him uneasy at the broader things the film might imply about porn as a whole. The panel Kernes appeared on recently included the filmmakers, some industry people and some anti-porn activists including Gail Dines, a particularly poisonous and vehement anti-porn campaigner who once likened the BDSM site Kink.

It almost makes them worse, because they think they have more power than the girl walking in there trying to do something. She has no ill intentions, but he has all of them, under the rug.
