A CONTROVERSIAL porn film producer and Liberal Democrat candidate is being honoured by her industry with the award for Politician of the Year.

Anna Arrowsmith, who works under the alias Anna Span, will pick up her Golden Flying Penis award at The Night of the Senses, an erotic-themed charity ball, on Friday in honour of her work to promote gender equality in pornography.

She said: "It is obviously a little unfortunate that it has happened just before the election but it really is for my 12 years in the industry pushing for female equality.

"It will be a little strange as I will be there as this upstanding politician in amongst people enjoying a night celebrating the erotic.

"It is all a bit tongue in cheek really and quite tastefully done. It is for charity and gives people a chance to have some fun."

The night is organised by the Leydig Trust, which stages events to raise money for charity Outsiders.

The cause works to help people suffering from disabilities to find partners.

Mrs Arrowsmith added: "There is this misconception among the general public that disabled people are somehow not interested in being in relationships which is really quite patronising."

Outsiders also run the Sex and Disability Helpline, the Sexual Health and Disability Alliance, workshops and events.

Held at nightclub Cable in south-east London the night is strictly a private affair, with no press or unofficial photographs allowed.

The website promoting the evening, which forms part of London Sex Weekend, indicates there is a strict dress code of "Absolutely no street clothes," adding: "You can be as nude as you dare."

Tickets cost £75 and can be brought by visiting www.nightofthesense.com.
