Teens Prefer Snorting Condoms To Eating Tide Pods

When you search "condom challenge" on YouTube, you actually see two kinds of video challenges: 1) videos of people plopping water-filled condoms over their faces, and 2) teenagers snorting condoms up their nose until it comes out through their mouth.

The "condom snorting challenge" is exactly what it sounds like: Teens are taking to the internet to post videos of themselves snorting a condom up one nostril and inhaling until it - hopefully - re-emerges into the mouth.

"Because these days our teens are doing everything for likes, views and subscribers", Stephen Enriquez, a Texas-based health educator, told the station.

Now teens are taking on an even grosser challenge in pursuit of Internet fame - and this one is making stomachs turn, as it is as disgusting as it is unsafe. Forbes asks why it's risky to inhale "an object made of latex rubber and covered in lubricant and spermicide", and digs up stories to make a parent shudder.

He also points to a 2004 report published in The Indian Journal of Chest Disease & Allied Sciences, which documents the case of a woman who accidentally inhaled a condom during oral sex which led to pneumonia and partial lung collapse.


A condom-snorting challenge gaining notoriety on social media is a bad idea that can cause medical problems, according to medical professionals.

However, the challenge went viral on social media in 2018. "Anything else that goes up your nose can damage the sensitive inner lining of your nose, cause an allergic reaction, or result in an infection".

"Would it really be worth all that just to get more like and views?" Condom snorting, apparently, is the latest fad making its rounds on social media in the United States.

There is a new internet challenge that has some parents on alert and just about everyone asking questions.

However, there have not been any official statistics on how many have taken up the condom-snorting challenge.
