Parents Warned: Teen 'Condom Challenge' Is Not Safe

The latest social media craze entails teens making videos of themselves snorting condoms into their nostrils and pulling them out through their mouths.

In the videos, the teens put a (hopefully unused) condom up one of their nostrils, and inhale HARD until the condoms goes up, around, and then comes out of their mouth.

The condom challenge could be the next Tide Pod challenge.

Can we just go back to the ice bucket challenge or something? If you type condom challenge into YouTube, several videos of young people snorting condoms will show up.

On the heels of the Tide Pod challenge comes a very unsafe new craze on social media: the condom-snorting challenge.

KHOU says that while ingesting Tide can be poisonous, the most likely result from putting a condom up your nose is throwing up whatever you ate for dinner.


State education specialist Stephen Enriquez has visited schools to share this disturbing practice with parents so they can be aware of what children may be doing, KABB reported.

The "Condom Challenge" is not only gross, it's risky. According to Dr. Bruce Y. Lee, associate professor of International Health at Johns Hopkins, a condom could become stuck in the nasal cavity or throat, and could cause choking.

The trend isn't new - the first example of the condom challenge is from 2012- but it appears to be experiencing a resurgence. A report published in 2004 in the Indian Journal of Chest Diseases and Allied Sciences detailed an "accidental condom inhalation" in which a 27-year-old woman unintentionally sucked a condom down her throat and into her lungs during oral sex.

The challenge is extremely risky and even caught the attention of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, which warned about the risks of social media craze.

"Would it really be worth all that just to get more like and views?" The video has since been removed, but there are still dozens of others showing teenagers accepting the challenge.

There were 39 such reported cases involving teenagers in 2016.
