Award-winning adult entertainment corporation Mile High Media and leading all-girl studio Sweetheart Video are breaking new ground, with the release of its lesbian sports drama, “Lefty.”
Sweetheart Video’s “Lefty” showcases its director and star Dana Vespoli’s love of boxing and women in a compelling and erotic feature.
In the sexy feature film, Dana Vespoli plays Linda “Lefty” Lumaban, an undefeated boxing champion who abandoned her career at the top of her game, leaving behind an illustrious career, a beautiful girlfriend, and staggering wealth.
Bree Daniels plays Erin, a hip journalist who decides to track down the elusive boxer to see if she plans on making a comeback. Viewers will join Erin on her odyssey, as she interviews Lefty’s ex-girlfriend, Alexis Texas, discovers dark secrets from Lefty’s past, and finally comes face to face with the brooding boxer in a climactic ending.
“I had watched Raging Bull, the Rocky movies and then the Antoine Fuqua movie “Southpaw” as well as several boxing documentaries. I was fascinated at how most of these fighters had come from difficult circumstances, and boxing, as brutal of a sport as it may be, was nothing compared to the day to day struggle of growing up in poverty, and/or victims of abuse.
Boxing was a way out, or a way to provide for their families, as was the case with Manny Pacquiao. In a lot of ways, these boxing stories are quintessential American Dream stories, and I wanted to create a story like that for a female boxer. Lefty is inspired in part by Mike Tyson’s relationship with Cus D’Amato, his coach who was a father figure to him, and Manny Pacquiao who came from poverty in the Philippines. Lefty is also a celebration of women in combat sports now being billed as the main event in the UFC.”
“I wrote the script with Alexis Texas in mind as Lefty’s girlfriend, because Alexis is a huge star, and I loved the idea of Alexis playing herself in a fictional movie as the lesbian boxing champ’s girlfriend,” explains Dana Vespoli. “I also wrote the script with Bree Daniels in mind as the journalist, because Bree is a committed actress and performer, and just mesmerizing to watch. She has been my muse for a very long time. Julia Ann is spectacular as Bree’s arrogant lover, and AJ Applegate and Dani do an amazing job with Alexis in a steamy, big booty three-way. James Avalon makes a great cameo as Sully, Lefty’s coach. It was a dream to be able to shoot this project.”
Mile High Media Vice President Jon Blitt states, “When Dana first pitched us on this movie, we could tell she was deeply passionate about the project. Mile High is always willing to invest in porn that digs deeper than the surface of sex, providing a compelling story, which captivates viewers. ‘Lefty’ is an amazing film, and I know fans and critics will be blown away.”
Sweetheart Video’s goal is to create original, innovative girl / girl erotica for the discerning viewer. Sweetheart films are storyline-driven, carefully cast, and always containing real sexual encounters between women who truly want to be together.

The Canadian managed company began as a Canadian licensee for American adult movies, ensuring it distributed only the highest quality content.
Understanding the diverse and ever changing needs of its consumer base, Mile High determined the best way to provide a wide array of superior entertainment was to produce its own.
In 2003, Mile High launched Doghouse Digital, the first of its acclaimed lines catering to specific niches. Growing market trends and demand led Mile High to create Sweetheart Video (lesbian line), Sweet Sinner (couple line), Reality Junkies (reality gonzo line), Hardcore Parody (parody line) and Icon Male (Gay romance line). With over 2000 titles, Mile High’s studios yield some of the most viewed adult movies in the world, available on all platforms, including broadcast, IPTV, VOD and mobile applications.
