Condom snorting challenge is latest disturbing teen fad


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

According to KHOU, viral videos on YouTube have been circulating and shared thousands of times, showing teenagers and young adults “snorting condoms.”

Internet challenges like to spread through the web, but this isn’t chugging milk or eating a spoonful of cinnamon.

Some more recent challenges include the Tide pod challenge and the Carolina reaper challenge.

“It’s all about progress; this is better than eating tide pods,” said one man, according to KHOU.

Many of these challenges are done for likes, clicks, shares, and attention.

CBS News reports the act could also be dangerous.

“You are literally putting something down your nose, which connects to your mouth, which connects to your trachea,” Dr. Ammar Ali, an emergency room physician at Beaumont Health, told CBS Detroit. “I mean, you are risking choking on it.”

Doctors say snorting condoms could also cause an infection.
