Stripper continues to perform after falling off 15ft pole and breaking jaw
Pole dancing, contrary to what is typically portrayed in the media, is a physically demanding activity. While it is often depicted as highly sexual, the allure created can come at a heavy price - and in some cases, this is more than just upper body strength.
Case in point, this stripper, who proved that she is as hard as nails when she continued to perform after falling from a 15ft pole.

The shocking but nonetheless impressive footage was posted to Twitter by a user named @1Freedrugs. It was captioned: "This stripper almost died at XTC last night!"
At the time of writing, the video has received over 51.2K likes and 14.3K retweets since being posted on February 9.
One viewer wrote: "She still working, if I fall from the ceiling at work I'm going home!"
A second remarked: "GIVE THAT LADY A RAISE!!!"
A third said that they hoped the patrons of the venue made it rain after such an impressive performance, writing: "First of all... HOW DARE THEY ALL NOT MAKE IT RAIN ON THAT QUEEN AFTER THAT."
It then emerged that there is a financial cost to the incident; as the dancer received several injuries as a result of the fall and the club does not cover her medical insurance. Another Twitter user later revealed that a GoFundMe has been set up to help the dancer.
It revealed the full extent of her injuries too. As a result of the fall, she sustained fractured jaw, broken teeth, and a sprained ankle, which makes her continued twerking all the most impressive. We can only stan.
A woman named Shae wrote: "DONATE TO HER GOFUNDME FOR HER SURGERY TOMORROW. Y'all are so entertained by someone else's misfortune so you better put something forward"
At the time of writing, almost $16,000 has been raised of the $20,000 target to help the woman, whose name is Gina, get the help she needs.
