Rachel is a bright, pretty year-old who wants to study medicine. She gets on with her parents and younger brother, walks her dog every night and her teachers praise her. Once a week, usually Sunday night, she performs solo sex acts on camera for a man she has never met called David.
A new documentary, Hot Girls Wanted , follows young women as they are maneuvered into being "amateur" porn performers, then discarded by the business within a matter of months. Hot Girls Wanted focuses on year-old Tressa, a high school cheerleader and good student who leaves her parents in small-town Texas to go to Florida and work in porn. Variety's Geoff Berkshire says it's "an eye-opener for parents ," which I can't help feel misses the point. But in his coverage is an important part often missed: that technology and communications are the medium that helps young people make dreadful mistakes.

I like to be in front of the camera. Rachel, who played the clarinet in her high school band and considered joining the Air Force after graduation, was excited at the idea of modeling, making good money and a chance to get on a plane for the first time ever. I still didn't think anyone would find out, didn't think my parents would find out. But when she landed in Miami, Rachel said she realized she had stepped into a world she never imagined -- one that she said would haunt her forever. Rachel said a year-old agent met her at the airport and took her to a no-frills house with about a dozen other young girls -- most of them were also from small towns, just like her. A lot of agents just see money signs. If they have family emergencies, I lend them money so they can go home. I just got another house [for the girls]. Filmmakers Ronna Gradus and Jill Bauer spent months following several teens in the amateur porn business.
