Just when you thought the Tide Pod challenge was dangerous in comes the condom snorting challenge. What is the condom snorting challenge you might be asking yourself? It's when you unroll a condom and stuff it up one side of your nose, then plugging the other nostril and start inhaling the condom until it slides into the back of your throat.... Then what? Well you pull it out your mouth of course.
Why would someone want to do that?
Turns out it's for the same reason young people eat tasty laundry detergent packets or douse themselves in rubbing alcohol and light themselves on fire.
“The condom could easily get stuck in your nose or your throat, blocking your breathing or causing you to choke,” Says Bruce Lee, an associate professor at John's Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
Lee pointed out a medical case that he saw involving condom mishaps which detailed accidental inhalation in which a 27-year-old woman unintentionally sucked a condom down her throat and into her lungs during oral sex. It lead to pneumonia and caused the upper right lobe of her lung to collapse.
These days our teens are doing anything for a viral hit on YouTube which means they do stupid things and look for other stupid challenges just to get people to watch.
Is it all worth it just for likes and views? For some, yes!
