Condom challenge: All you need to know about the social media trend

Condom challenge: All you need to know about the social media trend

In San Antonio, Texas, parents have reportedly started to attend classes about the condom-snorting challenge and other risky social media trends.

In answer to the several queries we've received: yes, the videos are real.

Condom snorting as a social-media gag has been around for years.

March 2018 saw an uptick in media coverage, but it wasn't because people were snorting condoms again.

Mainstream news outlets reported on the condom snorting challenge in 2013, but the phenomenon was never that widespread and gradually petered out. The challenge involves inhaling an unwrapped condom through your nose and pulling it through your throat.

This isn't the only unsafe challenge teens are attempting, as the "Tide Pod Challenge" made headlines in January for putting laundry detergent pods in their mouth, or cooking them and then eating them.

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

'As graphic as it is, we have to show parents because teens are going online looking for challenges and recreating them.

Health authorities warn that the new "game" poses a real risk and can kill. Condom snorting can also block your breathing and cause you to choke, especially since the prophylactic is much larger than a nostril, according to Bruce Y. Lee, an associate professor of global health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in a Forbes column. That would be as foolish as, well, trying to inhale a condom.

A more recent report from 2016 found a woman suffered from appendicitis after she accidentally swallowed a condom during oral sex and a piece of it lodged in her appendix.

This challenge would "demonstrate to everyone that you have absolutely no proper judgment", Lee wrote.

The trend isn't new - the first example of the condom challenge is from 2012- but it appears to be experiencing a resurgence.
