  • Moronic condom-snorting challenge takes over social media

Not only do kids risk choking on the condoms, but according to Forbes, the challenge also carries the risk of allergic reactions and infection.

The challenge involves snorting an unwrapped condom through a nostril and pulling it out through the throat.

The condom challenge went viral for the first time in 2013, when another YouTuber, Savannah Strong, filmed a video of herself doing the same thing while the song "22" by Taylor Swift played in the background. "As graphic as it is, we have to show parents because teens are going online looking for challenges and re-creating them".

The leak might have reached the coaches' offices, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts wouldn't confirm or deny that. "Um. ... It was nasty, man". "It had something to do with a main pipe here, as well as main pipe outside the stadium".

Forbes cites two cases reviewed in medical journals in which women accidentally swallowed condoms, developing ailments ranging from pneumonia to appendicitis. Not to mention the possible choking hazard involved in condom inhalation, Inquisitr notes. As Kens5 puts it, "There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity, but the line isn't so fine when people snort condoms".

Yes, it's gross. Worse, it's unsafe, warns Bruce Y. Lee, an associate professor of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

PARENTS are being urged to be vigilant over a risky new social media challenge of teens snorting condoms up their noses. It's best to use condoms as they were intended: for safe, consensual sex. Texas education specialist Stephen Enriquez told Fox News affiliate KABB-TV that these bad decisions were fueled by a desire to get more views and likes on social media.

Many of these challenges are done for likes, clicks, shares, and attention. Participants typically then post a video of the completed challenge to YouTube. The American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) treated 215 teenagers related to intentionally ingesting single packet laundry detergent since January 2018, according to the AAPCC's website.
