LOS ANGELES — Sylvaria Agency owner Jack Spade spoke with The Daily Beast writer Aurora Snow about the controversial Netflix documentary, “Hot Girls Wanted,” about how adult entertainment agents are depicted and the misconceptions presented in the movie produced by actress Rashida Jones.

From The Daily Beast:

With over a decade of experience in the adult industry, Jack Spade also transitioned from performer to agent, and now operates two licensed agencies: Sylveria and Adult Star Models. Appalled by Hot Girls Wanted, Spade is determined to voice his concerns. “Just a couple of days ago, I had a meeting with some of the other licensed agents and said, ‘What are we going to do about this, guys? Isn’t this on us to step up and show the other side?’ And it was sad because there was almost a sense of helplessness — but I’m not going to give up,” says Spade.

According to Spade, his agency has no qualms about turning a prospective model away for her own good. “Before we buy a model a ticket to fly out here, one of us will talk to them. We get on the phone and ask about her goals. If she says she’s halfway through nursing school, we say don’t do it, it’ll ruin your future. And I don’t think Riley from Hussie Models is doing that,” says Spade. “I don’t think there is a genuine effort put into how this will affect their lives.”

"I'm appalled at the one sided nature of this documentary. Although there are members of the adult industry who do mislead girls into working in this business, there are plenty more reputable, licensed agencies, like Sylvaria, who strive to provide professional and reliable representation for our performers,” says Randy Quintara of Sylvaria. “We only work with established and respectable companies who treat our talent well, as their well-being is always our number one priority."

“Hot Girls Wanted,” follows the lives of a handful of barely-legal, aspiring porn stars living in Florida out of a model house rented by Hussie Models agent and performer, Riley. Other industry experts interviewed by Snow are performer Jenna J. Ross and New Sensations director Jacky St. James.
