A new documentary series on Netflix is looking into how technology is affecting relationships and the current state of the pornography industry.
Called “Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On”, the series is a split into six episodes, each one following a different person’s story.
In episode two, “Hot Girls Wanted: Love Me Tinder”, Netflix follows ex-Big Brother contestant and TV show host James Rhine, looking at how the internet and his use of online dating apps like Tinder have impacted on his relationships.
According to the show, which was created by Ronna Gradus, Jill Bauer and Rashida Jones, 20% of adults are using dating apps and sites, and one in four people say that using dating apps offers them too much choice.
The show delves into this latter statistic, looking at how Rhine uses dating apps to meet multiple women for hookups and speaking to a number of his dates to further explore his (and potentially other people’s) mentality towards online dating.
Rhine explains that before he entered the Big Brother house in 2005 he didn’t receive much romantic attention from women, but when he left the show this changed.
He says that the influx of attention led him to become romantically involved with a number of women and that this streak continued when he started using dating apps, which he uses to meet women and organise hookups, before ending communications after a few dates.
The episode also looks at ghosting, revealing that one in five people who use dating apps have been ghosted, and one in three have done it to someone else.
