Know Any Hot Girls? Good News, It’s Hot 100 Season!

Hello Autostraddlers! As you may recall, every spring around this time a bunch of websites (like AfterEllen) and magazines (like Maxim) put together a “Hot 100.” A “Hot 100” is a series of 100 photographs of women considered “hot” by the readers of said magazine/website. Needless to say the list skews towards “famous” and “really fucking famous.”

We felt so so so so so hot in May of 2009 that despite being a little baby website run by four girls who worked 60 hours a week, we’d assemble our very first Hot 100. This Hot 100 ranked — what else? — Hot things! Stuff that made the cut included Hot dogs, stovetops, hellfire, walking on the beach when the sand is really hot, Global Warming, etc.


Last year, although we agree with the other websites that Olivia Wilde has a very nice forehead and overall faceplate and although we agree with ourselves-in-2009 that hot tubs are indeed quite hot, we decided to once again completely revolutionize the genre and ask to see you! That’s right, hottie! Anyone was allowed to submit themselves or someone else.


What will we do this year?

Once again, we are enchanted by your collective hotness and want to see 100 Hot Girls Who-Like-Girls. We wanna see All the Real Girls. But the rules are different. This year it’s on you to get your mega-hot girlfriend on the list.


2011 Autostraddle Hot 100!

1. Anyone can submit a photograph of someone else — a friend, girlfriend, family member — someone you know and love. (We think it’s the most fun if you don’t tell them, but that’s just us)

2. You will email your photograph — HIGH RESOLUTION PLEASE (aka “as large as possible) — to autostraddle [at] gmail [dot] com. Bonus points for descriptive file names. Also NO TIFFS.

3. The subjectline should read Hot 100 2011: [First Name of Person] from [Your Name]

4. The body of the email should include the following information


* 1. Their Name (first or first/last, whatever you think they’ll be comfortable with)

* 2. Your Name

* 3. Your Relationship to This Person

* 4. This person’s age.

* 5. Where this person lives – City/State/Country/whatever you want to say

6. What do they “do” (teach high school, barista, student, biochemical engineer, watch television, etc.).

7. Why they’re hot.

8. Anything else you’d like us to know.



Deadline is May 7th

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th! We're out of immediate danger...but we had to ask...what if we could survive for longer? Will you help?

Go to our Fundraiser!

the team

auto has written 696 articles for us.


  1. Does this person need to be a personal friend/loved one, or can it be like “This person runs the local queer association and is awesome” or “this person wrote a book I really liked” etc etc? Basically does it have to be someone we know personally?


    [the hot 100 is giving me a tinge of sadness. a sorta-ex was in last year’s list, i put her there, and it was actually the release of that list that sparked a whole lot of erotic energy between us and got us to be briefly more than friends. it was perfect while it lasted. but now a year later she no longer wishes to talk to me. :( :( :( i miss her]

  2. I sent it from a different email address and from a different name, so I’m not guilt-tripping when I say this: PICK MY LADY. She has never realised JUST HOW HOT she is and always complains that people say she’s too ‘straight looking’ to hit on. I can guarantee you, that girl is not straight. I would be so fucking stoked to be able to tell her she was in Autostraddle’s top 100.

  3. You should definitely have the lovely calendar girls for this year and next year included!! Hot hot hot. (btw, where’s April and May – sad face) So there’s 24 down, 76 to go!

    • I think it’s one of those “kinda good-definitely bad-you should probably do it anyways” situations? Those are my favorite. I thrive on making good-bad choices! Not that I should probably be encouraging you…
