A former adult Brazilian movie star, who is among Google’s most searched women in the country, has declared her candidacy for the legislative elections. Considered one of the biggest stars of Brazilian porn, Elisa Sanches is one of the candidates in the October elections and intends to use her popularity to reach the Chamber of Deputies for Patriota-RJ.

On social media, the 41-year-old presenter of the erotic reality show — A Casa das Brasileirinhas — is already campaigning and promising to work for women. “I am a candidate for the position of federal deputy for Patriota Rio de Janeiro. If elected, I want to be an MP for health, employment, freedoms, development and above all the defense of women,” she said, according to a report by the Daily Star. Elisa also says that she will present to old people and young people.

Elisa joined Rio de Janeiro’s centre-left Democratic Labor Party (PDT) in October last year, and her inspiration is activist Gabriela Leite, who led the country’s sex worker movement before her death in 2013. When Elisa declared her pre-candidacy in March this year, a surprising move for someone in her profession, people took notice.

Elissa says she will also campaign for the rights of sex workers and has started her campaign on social media as well as locally and assures her constituents that women’s rights will be guaranteed if she wins a place in the House deputies (the lower house of the Brazilian parliament). She is preparing to publish her author biography as part of the campaign. With more than 600,000 followers on her Instagram profile and 460,000 on Twitter, she thinks her election success is more than likely.
