From the film "Hot Girls Wanted." (Netflix/Facebook)

Hot Girls Wanted: New Documentary Exposes the Teen Porn Industry

Netflix is the single biggest driver of internet bandwidth. But when looking at genres instead of single companies, there's one category that receives more visitors each month than Netflix, Amazon, and Twitter combined: Pornography. And according to the new documentary "Hot Girls Wanted," the number one search term for porn consumers is the word "teen." While some may see teen porn as a fantasy, there are thousands of real teen girls who are working for porn sites. "Hot Girls Wanted," debuting on Netflix on May 29th, is co-directed by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus, and produced by Rashida Jones. Here, they describe making the film, and one of the girls profiled in the film, Rachel, shares her story of entering and leaving the teen porn industry.
