Overview

A Craigslist advert can seem like a one-way ticket to freedom for fresh-out-of-high-school women looking for a new life. The Hot Girls Wanted documentary follows the story of five young women who moved to Florida to work for Hussie Models, a pornstar talent agency managed by Riley Reynolds.

Reynolds takes pride in finding actors and turning them into famous internet pornstars. In return, he helps himself to a generous cut of their earnings and charges them expensive rent. Directed by prolific documentary filmmakers Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus, the film investigates the deeper reasoning behind why these women entered the sex work industry.

Each story is unique, but all of them follow a similar pattern. First, the realization that they didn't want to live 'a normal life' like their parents. Second, that sex work could earn them a lot of money – quick. However, after a few months in the industry, money gets scarce. In this industry, youthful actors are always more popular and competition is harsh.
