Summary: In a new viral trend, teenagers are snorting condoms. 

Teenagers have moved on from eating Tide pods to snorting condoms. In a new internet fad that will most likely go as quickly as it came, our nation’s youth have decided to snort condoms up one nostril, inhale it, and then pull it out of their mouths.

According to Fox News, teenagers are performing this gross act in pursuit of Internet fame. Health authorities have said that this game is not only gross but can pose a real risk and kill its players.

“The condom could easily get stuck in your nose or your throat, blocking your breathing or causing you to choke,” Bruce Y. Lee, associate professor of international health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, wrote in Forbes. He added that the condoms can cause an infection or allergic reaction in the lining of a person’s nose.

Lee cited two cases in medical journals where women accidentally swallowed condoms and developed ailments in pneumonia and appendicitis.

“Even if you manage to successfully pull the condom out through your mouth, inhaling a condom up your nose would be very uncomfortable and potentially quite painful,” Lee wrote. “Would it really be worth all that just to get more likes and views?”

In January, another dangerous viral challenge spread where people would eat Tide Pods. The American Association of Poison Control Centers stated that this stunt resulted in 142 incidents reported that month.



Lee stated that the condom challenge has been around for years but has recently made a resurgence.

“This “Condom Challenge” is actually not new and has been around for a number of years, because stupidity doesn’t go away that easily,” Lee said. “Back in 2013, Alex Alvarez wrote for ABC News about how a YouTube video uploaded in June 2007 showed the act and how the Challenge may have gotten more attention when YouTuber “Savannah Strong” posted on April 8, 2013, a video of her snorting a condom to the tune of Taylor Swift’s “22.””

Lee stated that Condom Challenge participants have been filming themselves and uploading their stunts on Youtube or other social media platforms.
