Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones’ new documentary Hot Girls Wanted examines how young women are lured into working in pornography with the promise of glamour and fame, only to end up in cities such as Miami where they make “amateur porn.” Speaking to Vice about this new project, she warned against the “pornification” of society but explained that she had no problem with porn; it’s “here to stay,” she said. “I personally have no problem with porn as adult entertainment. I think it’s great that we have the freedom to explore our sexual fantasies, and that there’s tools to do that. The problem with me is that there’s no regulation in the industry – the average age someone watches their first porn is 11. For someone to learn about sex from porn, I think is really dangerous, and I think it happens a lot,” Jones continued. She also cautioned young women against joining the industry, saying that at 18, they might not yet understand the impact of their decision: “There’s the psychological, emotional, physiological – the physical cost of having sex for a living. You’re thinking about the fame part of it, so you might not be the best candidate to make a decision for yourself.”
