Just as we’re glad that the Tide Pod challenge is already over, another ridiculous social media challenge has recently surfaced among youngsters. It’s called the ‘Condom Challenge’ and it’s truly disturbing.
What is it exactly? Well, this challenge involves inhaling a condom through a person’s nostril and then pulling it out of the throat through his or her mouth.
As you can imagine, it’s unbelievable and very hard to watch.
Health experts are warning against the trend – because it’s obviously dangerous!
First and foremost, snorting a condom can be a choking hazard since it can potentially block the airway. Moreover, the lubricant used on most condoms can cause irritation and lead either to infection or trigger an allergic reaction.
All for the sake of likes and views!
As Bruce Lee, associate professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, perfectly summed up:
“When is using a condom a bad idea? When you are trying to snort it up your nose and pull it out through your mouth.
“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.
“Would it really be worth all that just to get more likes and views?”
Watch this video and see for yourself:
Apparently, the challenge has been around for a while but has recently re-emerged among teens.
We did some digging and we found out that the said challenge has been around since 2007. In 2013, one YouTube channel even did the challenge, attracting over a hundred videos from participants.
Meanwhile, reports also tell us that a woman died in 2016 after accidentally swallowing a condom – which had to be removed surgically from her appendix because it caused appendicitis.
So yes, we hope parents and teachers alike warn youngsters that their safety and health aren’t worth risking for this stupid trend.
